RIDE REMINDERS:

-The Routes that are given for each Club Ride are general and we do not always follow them exactly. They are primarily so people will know the general route we will ride, and they also can be used if someone gets separated from the group.

- Check your email 1 hour before departure time for a cancellation message if the weather looks questionable for a ride.

- Let Van Singley or Gerry Harris (386-235-7024/386-763-0010) know no later than 1 hour before a ride departure time if you are going to join the Ride in route, or meet us at the destination. We call ahead for reservations and need an accurate head count.

Club News

* REPORT / ACTIVITIES - We had 23 Members at the February Meeting at Louie's Pizza.

We passed out Dunlop Pens, Key Chains, Back Packs, and Stickers that Barry Boon's Wife donated to the Club.

Karl Brown gave us a detailed report on the New BMW Dealer Points/Discount Program that had been circulated to all Club Members. This is an excellent program.

The BMW Dealership has adjusted their pricing, especially on Tires (BMW Sizes in Stock); they should be considered when you are in the market.

The 2018 Club Roster corrections are complete and a copy was Sent to Euro Cycles to ensure you are eligible for their Points Program.

Mark Rodriguez volunteered to put together a Facebook page for us; Thank You Mark, and Janie Essad won the 50/50.
