BMWON Summer Mileage Forms turn in

The BMWON Summer Mileage contest deadline for mailing is this next week. Wayne, Dom and Dennis have been collecting forms for me and I have a number of them from the 22nd at Falcones Swap meet and Mileage form collection event. In total I have 18 forms to mail in as of today. If you are planning on mailing in your own, they must be post marked by November 11th. Just email me a note of your bike information and ending mileage numbers for our club tally sheet.

I will be at Sharpiro’s on Saturday morning to collect any remaining forms.

PS I have about 12 members who qualified for the drawing of a glider ride I donated, I am planning on doing the drawing at the Christmas Party, Need not be present to win !!

I will record all the forms I have and mail in the forms on Sunday to BMWON.

Thanks

2016 BMWMOA Mileage contest Update

Well the deadline to submit your forms to the MOA or to me is rapidly approaching You may turn in your forms to Wayne, Dennis ,Dom or myself.

I would like to have most forms in by May 7th. I believe Wayne has 16 forms and I have 3. So we are way behind last year at this point.

I will personally sweeten the incentive. I will donate a glider ride ( no I won’t be doing the flying) to one lucky club member who enters and finishes the 2016 MOA Mileage contest by turning in their form at Falcone BMW at the Saturday event in October. Anyone turning in their form that day will have their name put in a hat and a lucky winner will be drawn The only requirement is that due to weight and balance of the sailplane you may not exceed 242lbs. So to be eligible you have to enter now😎 And turnin your form in October

BMWMOA 2016. Mileage contest

Good afternoon

Hopefully you read your ON Magazine and weighed your options for the 2016 Mileage contest. Indiana needs your participation to knock off a few other states!! 2015 we had 43 finishers in Indiana.

I had propsed a turning in your mileage event at the dealership. Gene is willing but we gave logistic issues. May 15th is the Paynetown camp out and May 8th is a nearby rally date

Therefore please turn in your forms to me, Dom, Dennis and Wayne prior to May 15th. Stop by the weekly breakfast at Shapiros and one us will take your completed forms. I will record everyone’s info and mail all the forms in I receive.

I am proposing to the board and Gene we have a turn in Your 2016 contest forms in October. I am proposing we have a drawing for anyone who brings in their ending form to the dealership that day. ( something nice to win!)

We always have fewer people turn in their ending forms than completing their starting form. So let’s see if this can change our numbers for 2016
Pass the word
Thanks

Texas Visit

Dee and Mic Reeves visited club members John and Lucinda Cook and Rick Nelson in the hill country of Texas for a week of great riding this January.  Most of the rides involved something like this water crossing, or waiting for cows to move out of the road.

Any other intrepid Indy Club riders are welcome to come visit.

A note from Michelle Clark

Dear BMW Friends,

As our first day of 2016 nears the end, I want to send a special note of thanks. Most of 2015 has past in a painful blur for the girls and me. I really feel that I can not thank you enough for the support you gave us. Financially we would not have made it through. Even after the emergency was past there were, emails, texts, cards and visits showing an abundance of support for Andy and our family. I wish I were a poet or a greeting card writer so I could put the words here. Please know I think you all are very special. I wish you a blessed 2016 and a safe riding year.
Sincerely,
Michelle Clark
