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.
Halloween is right around the corner, so naturally we thought a Spooktacular party was in order! We invited Customers, Friends and Family out to the event – and what better location to host a Halloween party than the Morrie’s Heritage Car Connections warehouse? We dressed it up with spiderwebs, fog and a few other spooky surprises! Activities included Trunk or Treat, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, pin the spider to the web and pumpkin carving – with an automotive twist. Our talented graphic designers whipped up some MHCC-themed pumpkin templates along with a few beloved children’s characters like Baymax from Big Hero 6 and the Minions from Despicable Me, which were predictably a huge hit with the kids. Attendees weren’t the only ones who dressed up, either; a few of our cars had costumes of their own! The orange Volkswagen Thing made a great Jack-O-Lantern, and the Firebird, Land Cruiser, Bronco and Mustang all got makeovers to look like they stepped out of Pixar’s classic, Cars!
We had a fantastic time hosting and would like to extend a huge thanks to everyone that came out and made the event such a success – we hope everyone had a blast! Happy Halloween!
Last night, Morrie’s Heritage Car Connection kicked off the year with an inaugural founders meeting. We invited a select group of our closest friends and customers to come out to the “Dojo” to check out the cars and give us feedback on how to kick off the Morrie’s Heritage Car Connection when we launch next month. While one aspect of MHCC will be a club-like aspect based around members paying a monthly fee to access drive cars in the collection, we’ll also offer daily rentals to people who don’t necessarily want to participate in the club. We’d like to thank everyone that made it out to the event and we can’t wait to get you out on the road in some of our cars!
Make sure to visit morriesheritage.com to find out more about the cars, the rates, and the dojo before the program launches this June!
