MINI Golf with MINI of Ontario
I keep telling you that MINI of Ontario is pretty cool, right? Here is yet another reason why.
They have a WC-50 MINI on the showroom floor right now! To help celebrate that car and possibly hold a silent auction, they invited a bunch of MINI owners out for a round of miniature golf! Held at the Scandia Amusement Center directly across the freeway, we started off shotgun style, playing 17 holes of volcanos, castles and swinging things. The 18th hole, of course, is reserved for that special hole that wins you a free game!
It was a great way to spend a brilliant Southern California morning. Once we finished, we motored back over to MINI of Ontario where they had a full food spread setup for us on the giant covered patio/service drive. The air hockey table was fired up and could be heard over the sound of vuvuzela’s from the World Cup match playing on the big screen LCD TV that hangs outside!
Once lunch started, it was my turn to be put to work by calling out winners for raffle prizes. Car care products and MINI swag were given away as well as some cool gift cards for the winners of the golf tournament! The only thing left was the silent auction for the WC-50.
About that; there were a few bidders on that MINI, but none of them showed. You know what that means, right? Yes boys and girls, MINI of Ontario still has a WC-50 for sale! If you are looking for the most unique and rare of all MINI Coopers, this is the car for you. Hand painted using a two step process, special leather interior and all of the John Cooper Works goodies you like (including the go fast engine parts) and individually numbered make this MINI very special. More so than Todd’s beloved GP if you can believe that! If you are one that just has this car in your driveway and your local dealer doesn’t have one, give them a call at (888) 743-4041 and talk to sales manager Dan. Hurry! It won’t last long!
Thanks again to MINI of Ontario for putting on such a great event! These guys do it right!
Special Event: MINI of Ontario
Want a WC-50? Maybe spend the early afternoon playing a round of mini golf with some fellow MINI enthusiasts first? Followed by a carne asada BBQ? What are you doing on June 26th?
I know what I will be doing! I’m going to be at MINI of Ontario to enjoy the festivities of their special event centered around the rarest MINI of them all; the WC 50. Besides the mini golf and BBQ, MINI of Ontario will be auctioning off one of the prized JCW WC 50 MINIs. There aren’t many of them to go around, even on the west coast, so this will be a good way to try to get one and benefit the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House at the same time!
Here’s the skinny. If you want to get in on the silent auction, give Dan the Sales Manager a call at 888-743-4041 and he will get you prequalified. Once that is done, you will get the chance to bid on the car. Here is the cool part.
A portion of the proceeds above the MSRP of the WC 50 will be going directly to the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House. I’m not sure what portion, but knowing MINI of Ontario, it will be sizable!
If you want to get in on the MINI golf, email Katey West (firstname.lastname@example.org) to RSVP. Do that quick since there are only 50 spots. They are filling up fast!
Getting close to closing out February and it would seem that you folks out in White Roof Radio land are still enjoying this little dog and pony show that Todd, Gabe, Chad and I put together every week. Click the graphic above to see that WRR is currently holding down the #6 spot for audio automotive podcasts! That’s better than Car & Driver, all of the Motortrend shows and Autoblog!
We’ve got a big month coming up that you aren’t going to want to miss! First up, I will be at MINI of Ontario for the blood drive on February 27th. If you think you are going to make it, RSVP on Facebook or call Colin at 909.390.1818 to let him know you are coming. It’s going to be pretty awesome.
If you haven’t been over there yet, here is a short video to give you a taste of how cool it is!
After that, Todd and I will both be back at MINI of Ontario on March 6th for their Grand Opening! It’s going to be a HUGE party that you won’t want to miss! Bonus, if you aren’t in SoCal, you might not have too. Stay tuned for details coming. UPDATE: If you are planning on attending, please RSVP on Facebook or email email@example.com.
Finally, at the end of March we will all be at AMVIV! We say this every year, but we honestly think that this is the year you are not going to want to miss! It is going to be EPIC!
Thanks for listening, thanks for sticking with us and thanks for spreading the word. It’s because of you, the fine White Roof Radio listener, that we do this!
