UPDATE: Registration is Now Closed for the Spring 2016 North Star Club M Day - Second Event is Being Planned!

The North Star Club M Day planned for April 16th, 2016 has recently sold out and registration is now closed. In response to the level of interest and excitement around our Chapter's first ever Club M Day, we are working on a second event for fall 2016. We expect the fall event to be structured similarly to our April event and will communicate more details in the coming weeks.

For those members currently wait-listed for the April event, you will be contacted by an event coordinator directly if a place opens up.

Thank you for the interest in our Club M Day, we hope to make it an annual event!

Announcing the 2016 North Star Club M Day at the BMW Performance Center!
The North Star Chapter is excited to offer our members the opportunity to avail of a BMW CCA M Day at the Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina! This is a unique event tailored to BMW CCA Chapters using the Performance Center’s superb range of M cars, which includes the M3, M4 and M5. There will be classroom instruction followed by various in-car activities with the Center’s exceptional instructors. In-car activities include skid pad, driving dynamics on special handling courses and timed competition events. No helmets or previous driving school experience is required. The program runs from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm and includes instruction in current model M cars, lunch and gift bags.

The North Star Chapter has secured Saturday, April 16th, 2016 for this unmissable opportunity. We are also working with BMW to organize a tour of BMW Zentrum (museum) and the Spartanburg manufacturing plant on Friday, April 15th. This will be confirmed when BMW finalizes their tour schedules in February.

The event itself will cost $660 per person and is based on 32 participants. This represents an exceptional discount for a Performance Center event and to qualify, the Chapter needs 32 participants registered by February 6th, 2016. To ensure commitment, the Chapter requires that the event fee of $660 be paid in full at the time of registration. Each North Star member is permitted to bring a non-member guest whose fees would be paid by the member through the standard registration process. If the Chapter fails to secure 32 registered participants by February 6th, the event will be canceled and all fees will be refunded in full.

Registration will be through MotorsportReg and is anticipated to open mid-December. An email notification will be sent to all members once registration is available.

Travel arrangements to/from South Carolina in addition to food and lodging will be the responsibility of the individual participant. However, the Chapter will provide suggestions for local BMW CCA discounted hotels on the MotorsportReg registration site. It is recommended to plan for a two night stay to maximize enjoyment of the event and to spend some time with your fellow North Star enthusiasts in the Greenville area.

As you consider participating in this amazing weekend event, please help us spread the word by networking with your fellow North Star enthusiasts. Again, we need 32 participants to make this happen. It is also important to remember that the Performance Center is providing the M cars, tires and gas for the day!!!

If you require further information ahead of registration opening, please contact Gary McGinley (techsessions@northstarbmw.org) or Gary Ganser (vicepresident@northstarbmw.org).
