Tech Session

On October 8, 2016 there will be a tech session at Bimmer Workshop. The folks there will walk us through some of the typical areas of need for our vehicles while showing some of their capabilities and even putting a couple cars on the rack to see what’s going on under there.

If you have an interest in learning more about your special chariot, bring it by. If you want to have yours on the lift, the first ones to sign up get the first crack at seeing what’s happening under their cars. Register for this event by clicking here and entering the requested information at the bottom of the page. Click on the image for more information.

Tire Rack Street Survival

Back by Popular Demand — Teen Street Survival on October 15th! You spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars teaching your kids to play music and sports. Why not invest just $75 and 1 day to teach them driving skills that will keep them alive to enjoy all those other events and activities that life has to offer. Not your typical Drivers Ed, Street Survival will teach your young drivers what to do when bad stuff happens out on the road so they don’t panic but instead maintain or regain control of the car. It’s a very small investment for such a huge potential return. Contact Ken Finley at streetsurvivalregistration@houston-bmwcca.com or go to the website at www.streetsurvival.org. Only 30 spaces available so check those calendars and sign up early. Click on the image for a link to the registration web site. Click on the video below for an example of what to expect.

Note: due to the tremendous word-of-mouth promotion this event enjoys, the student roster is nearly full; there are only four spaces left. Once the roster is full, we will begin waitlisting students in case space becomes available. Don’t delay – register now!

As always, volunteers are vital to making this event a success. We need people to help reset downed cones, direct traffic, setup lunch, take water to the students, instructors and volunteers, and much more. To volunteer, contact Jim Iden at streetsurvivalvolunteers@houston-bmwcca.com. Qualified instructors are also needed. To volunteer as an instructor, contact Walter Phillips at streetsurvivalinstructors@houston-bmwcca.com.
