For the last few years, we’ve been sponsoring the Wayzata Chilly Open. In addition to being a great big chili cook-off for the businesses in Wayzata and neighboring cities, Lake Minnetonka plays host to thousands of “golfers” and spectators who come out to play 9 holes worth of golf on the ice. This year, three distinct courses were set up out on the ice, with Morrie’s sponsoring one of the courses. We set up a booth for Morrie’s Heritage Car Connection and brought our Banana Bronco out on the ice.
The theme this year was “Superheroes” so we turned our hole into a cityscape straight from Spiderman, complete with action figures. If a golfer knocked one of the villains (either the Green Goblin or Venom) off the top of our cityscape they got an automatic hole-in-one! We had a great time out on the ice meeting all the golfers and spectators that came by our booth and were happy to keep people warm with our fire bit. Some of the costumes were really fun and over the top too! Take a look at our photo gallery below to see what we mean.
Morrie’s Auto Group had a great time out on the frozen Lake Minnetonka this past Saturday for the 31st annual Wayzata Chilly Open! Holding down Hole #4 with our Banana Bronco, we had a great time meeting everyone that stopped by for our lasso contest! The chili samples were pretty great too!
Over the weekend, a group of employees from our marketing team took part in the Central Crown rally. We set off from Minneapolis and headed out to downtown Chicago with plenty of pit stops, sight seeing and other fun adventures along the way. With over 50 cars taking part in the rally, we had some stiff competition but our vehicle – which we appropriately named the “Banana Bronco” pulled through and we came in 26th place! Check out the highlight video below for a quick rundown of our trip!
The Central Crown rally wasn’t just for fun though, proceeds from the event went to support the Minneasota based non-profit People Serving People. People Serving People is the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused shelter in Minnesota. What distinguishes People Serving People from other emergency shelters is the broad range of on-site programs and services designed to address common barriers facing homeless families. Our ultimate goal is to permanently end a family’s homelessness with one visit to our shelter. We’re proud to be able to assist this great cause here in the Twin Cities.

As you can see, we had a blast driving this 1973 Bronco across three states, five cities/towns and many many many gas stops! We’re looking forward to taking part in the Central Crown rally again next year!
