After starting up our new club just under three weeks ago, we had a lot of planning to do for future events. We decided to kick things off at the Naked Racer Bar at Antique Motorcycles in Cheltenham, feeling that it had something for everyone.
With 57 registered attendees, we were very excited for the night. Arriving just before 6.30pm people were already starting to follow, it was overwhelming with new members flooding in and more signing up on the night.
In the end, we had over 70 people attend, which was absolutely fantastic! All attendees had a ball, chatted with friends, the night was a complete success! We are so grateful for the support we have received from all of our members. We are so very proud that in a little over a week after opening up for member registrations, we now have over 100 members!
"I personally want to thank you all, you are the reason we have taken this road and all the work that has gone on over the last few weeks, which has been considerable, is more than worth it when so many people come out and enjoy the company of like-minded friends in such a great atmosphere! Also thank you to John for hosting us, it is an awesome venue and we will be back again soon!" – Graeme Bell.
We are now up and running 100% and looking forward to giving you the members, the ultimate club experience. It is your club and we are here to run the club for you! So please tell us if you have any ideas for any kind of events at all. We mentioned at our launch night some of the events we have in store, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you have something you think will be fun to do!
"The last few weeks have seen a lot of work by some amazingly hardworking, dedicated, passionate people, it's not just me and Jo that have done all the work getting BMWDCM off the ground, initially yes, but since the word got out so many have come on board and helped be a part of this and get it up and running, I want to especially thank Lawrence and Shaaron Glynn, Jess, Chris and Sean Bell, Jenna Patan, Jason Gibson, Garett Sandeman, Alex Jory, Rob and Mia Pavlov, Andy Kaos, Peter Williams and anyone else I have forgotten to mention! (sorry) Also, I want to thank the Executive of BMW Clubs Australia and the International Council for their help, advice and assistance in getting BMWDCM off the ground and accepted as Member of the worldwide BMW Club family, I am incredibly proud and excited about the future with you all on board for the ride!" – Graeme Bell.
Keep an eye on the website for updates on upcoming events. We will send out notices to full financial members but non-members are also very welcome at our events. So keep checking and see if there is something you might like to come along to, or even help organise or run.
Thank you to all those who attended and gave their support, without you this wouldn't be possible.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the next one!
