Dear Members

The sun is shining and we're about to (hopefully) find our way out of restrictions this month, but before we do, let's recap October.

October started with our virtual AGM.  Our current committee were all re-nominated and elected. Congratulations to our committee and our members, we look forward to another fantastic year ahead. It was great to see a few of you dressed in your best Oktoberfest gear.


On 20 October we were then taken on a guided virtual tour of Mornington BMW by Alex and Tony.  We were also given an extensive outline on how their financing works and also some great information on after sales.  Remember, if you are popping into Mornington BMW for a service or some spare parts, mention you are a member of BMWDCM and receive our special member discount. 


We also held our annual presentation and awards night on 27 October.  Those who attended had a fun night, with many awards given.  Special mention to the following award recipients:

  • President's award: Stephen Garth
  • Member of the Year: Angelo Caridio
  • New Member of the Year: Andrew Brown
  • Motorsport Champion: Rachel Kertes
Congratulations to all of our winners!
