President'sMessage
As I write this article, it is week one of the mandatory "work-from-home" lockdown due
to the Coronavirus pandemic. In the last issue, we talked about our "Change is Coming"
campaign for 2020 and boy, did we get it right! Everything fun seems to be cancelled
or postposed as we all hope we come out of this with our own health and sanity.
Cabin fever already set in since I can't go to Cars & Coffee events, see a movie, or eat at
a restaurant. The National Capital Chapter (NCC) already had to cancel several events
as states make daily changes to guidance and restrictions in regard to the pandemic and
we will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and local authorities. It's amazing
the amount of mis-information that exists when we need serious, unified direction the
most. Be assured that our bi-weekly email blasts, club website, and Facebook page will
be updated with the most up-to-date information about our events going forward,
so please bookmark those sites if you haven't done so already.
Assuming things get back to normal for the summer, we will be full speed ahead
with events! Track days, autocrosses, tours, and DIYs are all planned and we'll do our
best to re-schedule whatever was cancelled in the spring. Hopefully we'll have some
new faces at our annual golf event at Raspberry Falls Golf Club in June. This chapter
always has a great turnout for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at the end of July, so
mark your calendars for that incredible weekend. And for those who need a huge BMW
fix, Oktoberfest returns in September in Palm Springs, CA; I can't wait to hit the track at
the BMW Performance Center at the Thermal Club!
Finally, I hope by the time you read this, the pandemic is over or phasing down.
It's times like these that I have to remind myself that while what we do as a club is
important and fun, the safety of ourselves, families, and friends is always more
important. That's why we took the measures we did to ensure the safety of everyone
because without you, we don't have a club. We can't forget our members are our most
important asset and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!
