Hi Members and Friends,
Congratulations to our first joint Club Person of the Year recipients John Kemp and Kevin Foster at the Club Awards & Christmas Luncheon capably organised by Social Sec. Martin Robertson and hosted by VP Dave Prest (I had a previous commitment to the UMTC 40th Christmas Rally). With 30 members in attendance this was our largest non-riding event of the year.
Nigel McFarlane will also get great enjoyment from his Kosciuszko Rally prize, a BMW Evo6 helmet. BMW Group (Australia) donated this prize through its Principal Event Support Program (PESP) and I thank them on behalf of the Club for their continued support. Didn't make it to the lunch? Then you can read about it on the Club Blog and for the more adventurous the Club Facebook page.
The Awards & Christmas lunch concludes the offical Club events for 2015, but many if not all of us will continue riding through December and January 2016 whilst the What's On page will have other motorcycle related events. If you are planning a ride and want company, then send me an email with date, time, route and start point and I can email members or you can use the Blog and fb page.
BMW celebrates 100 years of manufacturing in 2016 and your committee is looking for ideas to celebrate this milestone at the local level. BMW is organising a weekend event in Munich next year with some members already showing interest in attending, so check out and bookmark BMW 100th Anniversary Celebration on What's On for updates. The What's On calendar is already filling with rides, meetings, events and updates so make www.bmwmccact.org.au a favourite.
Lastly, I thank each of you and the Committee for your support through 2015 and looking forward to catching up with you at the next event. Until then enjoy the company of family and friends this holiday season and ride safe.
Enjoy the ride,
