Just a reminder that this Saturday is the North Star Chapter Summer BBQ and New Member Reception.

In what has become a long-standing tradition the Summer BBQ and New Member Reception is coming up! We want to invite ALL of the members of the North Star Chapter of the BMW CCA to help welcome the new members that have joined the North Star Chapter over the previous year. To the new members we want to extend a special invitation to you and your whole family (aah, except the pets) for the up-coming North Star Summer BBQ. Fine food, good friends, and four-wheel euphoria will be in abundance.

This year we are privileged to have joining us Jeff Brown from Griot’s Garage who will be providing demonstrations and instruction on various techniques to make sure your BMW (or Mini, or for that matter, any vehicle!) is kept looking as good as possible. He is a very experienced car-care technician and I know he will be able to enlighten us with his knowledge.

Here are the details:

What: Our Annual Summer BBQ and New Member Reception
When: Saturday, July 22nd, 2017 (Food: 11:30am – 1:30pm, Griot’s Garage is starting about 12:00 noon, with socializing until around 3:00pm)
Where: Brookview Park in Golden Valley, MN (Directions below)
This is known as one of the premier events of the year and if you miss it, you do miss out. The entire family can enjoy this event so gather round the spouse and offspring and head out for a good time on this weekend.

This event is open to ALL members. After all, we want people to get a chance to meet and get to know each other, old and new members alike.

The food, oh yes the food. We will have typical but splendid picnic food for your epicurean pleasure. The chapter provides all the food, soft drinks, plates, condiments, etc., all you have to do is show up.

Our generous sponsors and supporters will provide door prizes. The booty list is not complete but historically your chances of going away with a prize are very good. Be sure to stick around for the drawing.

It really helps our planning if we have an idea of how many people will be attending as we need to make sure we have enough for all. You can RSVP through

Thank you!

Brookview Parkway North, Brookview Pkwy N, Golden Valley, MN 55426, USA
