    For those interested in how the Border Run participants are progressing, have a look on the clubs public forum under rides / Border run to find Bully and Mikes spot tracker links.
    Both are camped at the start of the 90 mile straight this evening (Friday 3rd). Bully travelled via Hyden on his R100gs outfit, Mike blacktop all the way via Coolgardie on his ZX14.

    Thanks to all those who attended and assisted with the Annual Dinner it was a great night. We had an excellent turnout with 50 people enjoying the evening. Aaron and his wife Nikki attended from Auto Classic donating some great prizes. We had a good showing of new members which was fantastic to see. The Mallard Duck put on a good spread and I particularly enjoyed the sticky date pudding towards the end of the evening.

    Prizes awarded over the night included

    1. The Door Prize - Paul Chapman
    2. The Bwana's quiz - Lefty and JonO
    3. The newest member - Paul Chapman
    4. The earliest member - Brian Harvey
    5. The longest distance to attend the annual dinner - The Van Ballegooyen's from Keleberrin
    6. The member bring the most guests to the dinner - Wayne Eacott +3
    7. Who won the 25 year old BMWMCCWA Commemorative bottle of port donated by Brian Harvey ?

    John Wightman took several pictures so we hope to see some posted in the photo gallery shortly.

    Don't forget the Border Run next weekend, followed by the Black Dog ride, the Kart World Event, the Camp Cook off to be firmed up, and the Lake Dumbleyung camp on the October long weekend, its a busy schedule!

    See you at Catalano's

    Our Records Officer is going to set about compiling a register of members favorite rides with the aim of building a knowledge base of great rides near and far from Perth that all members can access. To to this end we need routes, instructions, distances, details ...details and pictures would be good to!

    We know that some of our members have an absolute wealth of knowledge, having lead us on some memorable excursions. It would be of enormous value to the rest of the members especially our new members if we could harness this and make it available to them. Of course we don't want all our favorite roads and camping spots becoming major tourist routes do we?, so this information is destined for the members only section of the website.

    If you have any favorite rides or even great ride suggestions send some details into Dave at email records@bmwmccwa.asn.au or post them here Ride Suggestions This includes mid week rides, half day rides, full day, overnight, weekend or even multi day trips.

    As Dave gets it all together you will be able to see and comment on the rides in the register here Members Ride Register you can even add a RSS feed so that you get emailed every time a new resource is added.

    So get your thinking caps on and get those suggestions coming in..

    On Wednesday September the 5th, the club will be hosting a Monaco style Kart Racing evening at Kart World Belmont from 6:20pm to 10:15pm

    Ric the Kart World Boss and one of our club members has very generously offered the club a huge discount on the event so that proceeds generated can be donated to the RFDS. This is a cause near and dear to many riders hearts and they have certainly helped out a few of our members in recent times.

    Basically we are looking to attract 70 entrants for an evening of organized racing. Kart World will provide instructions, driving suits including helmets as well as snacks and soft drinks. Members, their friends, family and guests are all invited to attend, however a maximum of 70 drivers has been set. This way everyone will get a good amount of time behind the wheel.

    Entry to drive will cost $60 and we plan/expect that 80% of this fee will go to the RFDS with 20% going to offset the cost of food and drink. If we reach our target of 70 drivers that means $3,360 for the RFDS new aeroplane fund.

    Come along and help us reach our target, you will be supporting a worthy cause and you are bound to have a great night.

    Prizes will be awarded for the best "performances".
