BMWMCCACT News - October 2018

Dear Reader

This belated news comes at the end of a busy month for the Club.  Starting with the National Motorrad Rally that included our raffle of a BMW G310GS motorcycle and other prizes.

The winner of the raffle and G310GS Herve Meslin picks up his keys and new bike at Rolfe's tomorrow Saturday 20th afternoon, so why not come along to the National Motorrad Rally 2018 Raffle Winner Key Handover for BMW G310GS (Club Event) and share in the celebration.

All the other prize winners have been notified and prizes posted out.  The raffle was a great success, with your Club donating A$4800.00 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.

The Club exists to support members and on behalf of our current members welcome Bronwynne Morgan (G310GS) and Donna Crowther (K1600B) to the Club.  I look forward to meeting both of you at an event.

Last weekend was your Club's 37th Kosciuszko Rally.  Unfortunately members present were outnumbered by other Clubs including BMWTCNSW and BMWOCSA along with other rider groups.  My special thanks to Graeme Jones (member), Bill Looyen and Mitchell Smee (non-members) for their assistance over the weekend at the control tent, Kransky station and breakfast BBQ under clear sunny skies, warm afternoons and mild nights...for Canberrans in any case.

On a personal note, after 8 weeks without riding post OCR my snapped finger tendon has healed and splint gone, so riding resumes.  Sec. Martin more serious OCR injuries have allowed him to progress from wheel chair to crutches and he should be back on the road soon as well and into the shed for repairs to his K75xc.  Just another reason, if needed, to have more than one BMW in your garage.

What's On includes the list of Club planned events; members are encouraged to propose, organise or lead rides but the Committee requires at least 2 week's notice not only to put your event up on the website, but to allow members to respond.  Members of the Club Facebook group can also post short notice rides, noting not all members use social media and again a message sent at 0900 for a 1000 start may not get many responses.

Lastly, you can look at pictures of these recent and past Club events on the website and why not plan your next ride with the Club.

Enjoy your ride
