Tire Rack Street Survival

Back by Popular Demand — Teen Street Survival on April 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.

Registration for this event is now open at motorsportreg.com.

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.

Charity Golf Tournament

Join us for a golf tournament on Saturday, May 6th. It will be hosted by the Houston BMW CCA in conjunction with our friends at the Audi and Mercedes clubs and benefits a veterans charity “Homes for Our Troops”.

Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, over 90 percent of donations to Homes for Our Troops has gone to directly support Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.

All monies raised above expenses to be given this charity. This should be fun for those who are good and not so good at golf as this will be a 4 person scramble (best ball tournament). There will be a shotgun start at 12 Noon and lunch/dinner and prizes are included with the $125 entry fee. For more information, call (281) 743-1029, or email socialevents@houston-bmwcca.com.

Austin Schnell Fest at COTA

Greetings BMW CCA members,

As you have heard we are joining forces with the Lone Star, Hill Country and Maverick Regions of the Porsche Club of America to put on driving schools at COTA this year. The events are titled “Austin Schnell Fest”. Registration will open on March 30 for all PCA and BMW CCA members. Registration will be handled on clubregistration.net so if you don’t have an account with them, you should do so now rather than when registration opens (an account is free). The event page is here: http://austinschnellfest.clubregistration.net/

You can see the actual links to the registration pages in the blue box on the middle of the page. You can see the entry fees on the registration page. The Beginner group (we have called it Green or Novice or D at previous events) is $700 for Saturday and Sunday. All other groups are $945 which also includes Friday. Instructors are $300 for the 3 days. There are no alternative number of day entries available at this time (nor do we expect there to be in the future). Garages are $1,500 per garage for the 3 days with no restrictions on number of cars (you can fit 6 with cooperation). If you want to share a garage, get one person in your group to buy the garage. We don’t anticipate selling partial garages at this event.

Registration will open on March 30 at NOON Central time for PCA and BMW CCA members. On April 6, registration will open for non-PCA or BMA CCA members (if not sold out).

When you register for an account on clubregistration.net, please fill in your BMW CCA membership number on the profile page. We will be checking this against our national database to ensure active PCA and BMW CCA members are given first priority for spots into this event.

Remember to sign up early and sign up often. Please go to BMWCCA.org to renew your membership. Also tell your friends to go there and sign up for a membership to get into the first wave of people that can sign up for this event. We are expecting to sell this event out quickly.
