Happy New Year NCC!!! I'm very proud of how well 2021
concluded with our normal 100+ event days despite having to
move events around to satisfy pandemic requirements.
Cramming a full year's worth of events into a smaller window
made life a little difficult, but our volunteers pulled it off without
a complaint. And now with 2022 here, we're ready to start this
year with a bang. For those looking to plan your schedule
around us, we'll be announcing the dates of most of our big
events like HPDE, autocross, and M Club Days sometime this
month. As many of you know, M Club Days are really popular
events, so signing up early guarantees your spot before it sells
out. For those who are ready to travel, this is a big year for BMW
///M, as they celebrate the 50th year of motorsports. Huge
national CCA events like MX1 (April 8-10) at the BMW CCA
Headquarters, The Power of ///M exhibition (May 21) at the
BMW CCA Foundation, both in Greenville, SC and O'Fest
Forever (Sept 28-Oct 2) in Palm Springs, CA are several great
ways to spend your time off amongst other BMW enthusiasts.
As the largest ///M market in the world, BMW NA will help
celebrate this great milestone with us and we hope you make
plans to join us. More details will follow throughout the year,
so look out for the opening of registration soon.
I'd also like to share that CCA recently recognized one of
our own chapter members, Woody Hair, with the prestigious
" Friend of the BMW CCA " award. This is the highest level
award for a person who shows true dedication, passion, and
enthusiasm for the club and its experience; only a small handful
of people can claim they are recipients and we have Woody to
thank for many years of great service. As a longtime NCCer,
Woody made his mark on the club in so many ways. In over
40 years, not only did he hold several different NCC board
positions, contributed countless articles for this newsletter, and
instructed thousands of members in autocross and high
performance driving, but he did all of it with unmatched
knowledge and extreme kindness. I'm super happy for Woody,
it's great human beings like him that make this chapter and club
second to none.
And finally, we have a new change to announce. You may
have noticed that we have new club logos, both nationally and for
NCC. In fact, BMW AG wanted all officially recognized BMW
clubs around the world to include the new " transparent " roundel
into our chapter logos and we ended up with a total redesign.
Unfortunately, due to BMW trademark law, we had to eliminate
our M stripe colors, but replacing it with the stars and stripes
was a natural transition since we're based in the nation's capital.
I'm sure it'll take some time to get used to, but nothing else
changes regarding how this club operates; we'll still provide
members with plenty of ways to fill your BMW appetite and I look
forward to seeing you at an event soon.
Paul Seto
