Sierra Chapter BMW Car Club – Reno, NV
11 July 2019 @ Pearce Motors


I hope everyone is enjoying July so far with this wonderful driving weather and that your 4th of July was fun filled and accident free.

Last month we had two great events.  “Cars and Calories” at Bert Skidmore’s  Intrepid Motor Company was a sight to behold seeing literally millions of dollars’ worth of amazing race cars and classics and listening to Bert telling stories of the racing greats he had been involved with. Thank you Bert for a fabulous morning!

Our second event was to the Berlin Ichthyosaur State Park. We all met in Fallon for much needed coffee then continued to Middlegate for lunch and socializing outside under beautiful old Cottonwood trees. The kids played tether ball and had a lovely time on the tire rope.  After lunch we caravanned on to Berlin to see the ghost town and do an organized tour of the Ichthyosaur fossils which was fascinating.   Getting there I found out my M5 is an all-terrain vehicle driving on dirt roads and crossing streams.

Our next event will be John Stroms’ tour of Nevada City on July 20. Please make sure you are signed up so lunch can be booked and paid for by this month’s meeting. The cost is $24.

Our annual picnic will be on August 11. Hope to see everyone at this month’s meeting. Meanwhile happy driving and enjoy this glorious weather.
