From the President’s Desk

Saturday May 19th was an amazing day for the Sierra Club as John English once again led 13 cars to the historic Virginia City thru Incline Village and Carson City.  Another great event awaits us when we arrived at our destination… The 35th Annual Chili on the Comstock was in full swing and was a welcome bonus to a perfect day.  While we waited for our table at The Palace, some members sampled endless varieties of chili and of course plenty of cold, refreshing beer to wash it all down.  Thank you, John English, for contributing your time and efforts in making this first driving event of 2018 a fun and successful one.

For many of us, summer means road trips and countless hours behind the wheel of our trusty BMWs.  Now that Memorial Day Weekend has passed, and we are officially in the summer season, you may be thinking about what kind of adventures are on the horizon for Summer 2018.  It’s June, then it’s time to hit the open road and explore your own backyard. Nevada is comprised primarily of desert terrain, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to see.  From extraordinary geological formations to incredibly blue waters, Nevada proves that desert doesn’t mean devoid of beauty or things to see.  You will be surprised at how many excellent driving adventures that can be had in the place we call home.  Whether you’re going on a quick weekend road trip or a longer, epic cross-country trip, always be safe, have fun and take that summer road trip of a lifetime.

Observed annually in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.  Let’s all do our part in keeping our roadways safe for everyone.  Remember that no call, text or email is that important when you are driving.  It can wait!

I am always open to suggestions regarding club functions, so if you have ideas for other events, please do not hesitate to email me at [email protected]

Remember… The Ultimate Driving Machine will always provide the Ultimate Driving Experience!

Until next time.

– Ron Nicasio, President
