View from the Driver’s Seat – April 2014

Enjoying the reception Sat night at the Trisaetum Spring dinner... Ribbon Ridge is beautiful with canopies on the vines.Wow – summer is upon us and we have a full slate of things geared towards all members. June marks the start of the car show season and we have everything from a social gathering at the Triple XXX Root Beer in Issaquah to the E30 picnic and our grand finale Gathering of the Heritage formerly known as our Concours d’Elegance which is shaping up and marked to be a fantastic event. I hope you attend and enjoy the various display and judged cars. We’ll even have some special cars there for you to view, so mark your calendar now (July 27, 2014 – Cedar River Park, Renton) and keep your eyes peeled for details on the event. This year we’ve added a car detailing session for you to attend before the Gathering of the Heritage and you can gain insight from some of the judges on what they’ll be looking for.

Just a reminder – those who went to the BMW CCA national website and opted out of a paper copy of the Zündfolge will receive their only copy electronically which started with the March/April 2014 issue. You will receive an email announcing the Zündfolge is available electronically. Those who continue with the preference of print versions can also access the Zündfolge on the chapter website. Notification regarding the availability of the Zündfolge will come from and is delivered to your email inbox, just add this email address to your safe list, and you’ll receive the magazine before the print edition arrives in your USPS mailbox.
