    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.

    The Board of Directors is proposing another round of changes to the Club By Laws, this time including some general cleaning up of typo's, formatting, and redundancies that have been accumulating over the last several edits but more importantly addressing how we classify and process (convert to member status) the nonmember but BMW owning attendees at the 49er and ROL rallies. Click here for the marked up version of the By Laws showing the proposed changes. 

    Note: This revision was approved at the September Member Meeting / Campout and following publication, here on the website and with the newsletter, will be up for review and vote at the October Member Meeting / Campout for ratification by the Club.

    Hey folks! If you haven't heard, BMW NorCal has a new Second Sunday Breakfast Ride Coordinator, Mark Rodda. So if you have an idea of a ride you'd like to share with the Club, let him know! Email him at SSBR@bmwnorcal.org

    And don't worry about having to put together a route sheet or .gpx file. Just come up with a breakfast place and your favorite route - riders can just follow.

Also missing from this month's edition is the Captain's Log - I was up to my eyeballs in ROL planning. But I'll be back in print next month. Click here to delve in and enjoy! And thanks to John for another great edition of the NorCal News!
