Now that we do not issue a physical membership card annually, we need a way for you to prove that you are a current member. Our club software system is very comprehensive and provides a mobile version so that important information is with you all the time in the form of a mobile app. Heres how to use it.
Go to your app store and search Wild Apricot.
The one you want is called "Wild Apricot for Members"
Download it, then open it. You use the SAME log in credential that you use to log into the BMWCQ web page on your desktop computer, they are the same.
When the app launches, you will see three (3) tabs at the bottom of the page, one for upcoming events, then My tickets, thats what you have booked for, then My profile.
This is the one you want so you can see your membership card is MY CARD.
This will show you your name, membership number, when you joined , when your membership is due and what your membership level is. Any problems with this contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the membership officer (email@example.com)

We have created a channel on Vimeo where we keep all of the videos from the recent past for everyone to find. Happy browsing..
VIDEO HERE PHOTOS HERE Sunday, 28th June, 2020 was the day we held our first post-Covid lockdown social drive for BMW Club Queensland. Thanks to the great work of our drive coordinator, John Tait, we were able to structure the drive within the guidelines of the stage 2 rules.
There were 3 groups, maximum of 20 people per group, separated by an hour on the road. We headed west from Dinmore to south to Lake Moogerah for a short stop, then onto Boonah where we all split up to find lunch or have a picnic. It felt a bit strange not gathering at the end, but it was great to get out onto the road, even if there was a short section of roadworks and MUD...John Tait!
The first event for BMW Club Queensland after the easing of Covid restrictions was a Skid Pan session held at the RACQ Mobility Centre of Excellence at Mt Cotton on Saturday 13th June 2020.
To maintain the safety of all participants, we were limited with numbers, so we ran two session of only seven vehicles.
Thanks to Denis Weisz, our motorsport director for organising the day and our host Joel Neilsen, from Sports Driver Training for running the event.
A special thank you to Maclaren Lamont for sharing his drone vision with us.

As you all would be aware, our normal has been thrown out the window which was evident by the cancellation of last Fridays meeting. We had planned to have John Tetley, Queensland Raceways CEO there as our guest for the evening.
So, to keep the communication and information happening, we have decided to create a number of interview style videos with people who are significent to our club.
The first of which is John Tetley, hosted by Greg Tymms. We hope you enjoy the first of our series.
BTW, we will be looking for people to talk to so if you have any suggestions, please let us know.

Every year, BMW Car Club America holds one of the biggest parties for BMW Enthusiasts. For its 50th anniversary, it was held in Greenville, South Carolina where there were car giveaways, cars and coffee, time distance rallies, track day at the BMW Performance Centre, BBQ, and so much more.
There were a group of six members of BMWCQ who travelled to the USA to help celebrate their 50th. We were made very welcome and were invited to be guest judges at their Show of Excellence..Check out our recap of the entire week!
On Monday this week, we took two special cars into the Brisbane BMW showroom in Fortitude Valley to support an event they are promoting. Flashback February is designed to highlight the heritage and history of the marque. There are all sorts of magnificent new cars on display there, but the whole showroom stopped and grabbed their phones to take photos when the Isetta drove in, followed by the E9 Alpina replica..
These two cars will be on show until next Monday 24th, when we will change them over to two early ///Ms, a very special E24 M6 and ///My E36 M3. That week will obviously be based around BMW Motorsport.. If you get a chance, drop in and have a look and promote the club.
