From the President’s Desk

FromThePresI mentioned in the last quarterly eNewsletter that we had some events cancelled due to lack of snow and the sale of Gilson Autobody, but the Virginia City Tour went off without a hitch. Thanks again to John English for organizing the ride. I believe everyone had a great time!

On July 12th, the club had it’s second annual Summer Picnic. This year we held it at Bower’s Mansion which is half way between Reno and Carson City just off Rt. 580. We had our own pavilion right next to the playground so it was perfect for the kids to play and pass the time away. Andy Goodrich did the grilling honors again this year. The burgers, sausages and hot dogs were delicious. All the members brought salads, appetizers and desserts so we had plenty of food. The Mazuryk’s even brought some pizzas for the group. A big thank you to Sharon Goodrich for putting this all together again this year. We had 20 families show up which was a wonderful turnout.

In August we have two events which the club looks forward to each year. August 8th is the Sierra Buttes Tour/Poker Run. If you haven’t tried it yet, come join us. We end up having lunch at Longboard’s Bar & Grill at Plumas Pines Golf Resort. Andy and Sharon Goodrich are taking the lead again this year and I know they will have a nice gift for the winner of the Poker Run. On August 13th, we will have out annual Potluck meeting at our house. We had 40 members come last year and I would love to beat the record this year for member attendance so sign up and come to ArrowCreek for a great time.

I know it is a year away but BMWCCA is coming back to Monterey for the 2016 Oktoberfest in August! This is a very special Oktoberfest because it marks the 100th year of BMW. There are very good rumors that BMW is bringing over many of the classic BMW’s from their museum. Jeff Warner mentioned in our meeting a few months ago that he will be attending and would love to have many of the club members attend. Stay tuned for more information in the coming newsletters but make a mental note to try and come next year!!
Happy motoring,
Pat McGoff
