Sierra Chapter BMW Car Club – Reno, NV
12 February @ Pearce Motors
We meet on the second Thursday of each month @ Bill Pearce BMW, 11555 S. Virginia in Reno. The meetings start @ 6pm, but feel free to show up early to talk cars or just drool over the new stuff in the showroom.

After our meetings end (~7 PM) many of us head out to dinner at a local restaurant.

President’s Message

Hopefully everyone enjoyed our glorious, sunny and warm January and managed some nice drives in our BMWs. Because of bad weather last year at this time we decided not to organize any events this year in January and February. But, of course, as fate would have it, this year has been mild and pleasant.

Our next organized event will be March 21, breakfast at Tamarack Junction and a short drive to view a 40+ private collection of cars. Hope you will join us for this fun and interesting day.
Following this month’s meeting we will be trying a new restaurant for dinner, the Claim Jumper on Kietze and South Virginia. Hope to see you there.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the February meeting!

Mart Jaama
