Month in review.

Dear members,

Happy New Year!

As quickly as it came, December is already gone but it left us with some really exciting news that we can't wait to share with you in the coming weeks.

Looking back on the month that was, it was quiet in comparison to the norm as we took an opportunity to wind down for a break over Christmas and New Year.

Our month started with a twilight drive led by Peter Williams, leaving from Jay Leno's Garage Car Products. Nev and Evan put on a fantastic BBQ for us before we began our drive and gave us an opportunity to test drive some of the products on our cars too.  The drive itself took us to South Werribee beach, where it was too cold to swim but not too cold to catch up with everyone for one last chat before we drove home.


On 12 December we were also invited to Cars and Coffee with Jay Leno's Garage Car Products.  Those who attended had a great time, with so many different cars to see.


Our month then finished with our final live catch up with the BMW Club and Community Management Team at a much easier time of 8pm.  We were taken on a tour of the facility and found out about some exciting things that will be happening in 2022.  Be sure to watch out for these events in future as we can expect more to be held at 8pm (Melbourne time), which is a much nicer time for us to attend.


Late in December we also opened our Expressions of Interest to display at the 2022 Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix.  We've received a high number of responses already - please note expressing your interest doesn't automatically guarantee you a spot as we are only able to display 20 cars. 



Welcome to our new memberKam Hayar, Ben Goodfellow, Jeremy Blaze, Michael Christopoulos, Dale Uren, Patrick Kearns and Paul Stewart. We look forward to seeing you at an event soon!


Don't forget to catch up with this month's update from our President, Graeme Bell here.
