BMW NorCal turns 55 in 2020!
Most of you know that BMW Norcal was established in 1965, and what a ride it’s been! From our humble roots of 15 (+/-) folks crammed into a cabin above Lexington Reservoir hammering out the foundation of the Club and less than 50 members in the first year to today, where we have a membership of some 315 riders, including three of the original founding members!
To celebrate this milestone, BMW NorCal is planning special rides and events throughout the year, complete with commemorative artwork and swag. And for this we are looking to you, the membership, for input and designs. Please submit any design ideas and/or sketches for consideration for this years’ commemorative artwork. Your idea could either be a hand drawing or created on a computer. Some ideas for phrases to put on the design could include: “BMW NorCal”, “55 years”, Ride to Camp, Camp to Ride, “Established in 1965”, “Fun”, Safe”, Camping”, etc. Be creative and capture the spirit of this fine club!
All ideas are to be submitted to Jorgen Larsen - Club Safety Director and de facto Party Czar at Safetydirector@bmwnorcal.org no later than March 1st. The BoD will vote on the winning design at the regular BOD meeting at MotoGuild San Francisco on March 7th. You are all welcome to come and participate, as usual. Submittals shall be by members in good standing only.
In addition, we are looking for some old club pictures from past events throughout the years. If you have any that you think could be fun to share, then please forward them to Safetydirector@bmwnorcal.org.
