The evening’s speaker will be Satch Carlson, Editor and Columnist for BMW Roundel Magazine. Satch will spend the night regaling us with diverse and entertaining stories of his
life as a driving enthusiast and BMW editor. Satch became the editor of Roundel magazine in 1998 after being a columnist since 1990. He’s originally from Reno NV, and spent quite a number of years in Anchorage AK, where he was very involved in road-rally events across the Arctic, while also contributing to AutoWeek as a reporter and columnist. After a stint in Portland OR, he kept working his way back down the Pacific Coast. He now lives in the San Diego area with “Party A” (his wife Kelly Kirkland) in what he terms Mondo Condo. It may be a condo, but it has room for his beloved Z4M roadster (license plate WOADSTR) and an I8 nicknamed Nancy Drew, plus Kelly’s BMW (license plate TWUBBLE). As Satch says, they sound like the illegitimate offspring of Elmer Fudd…

We’ll top off the evening with fantastic door prizes and great conversation with fellow BMW enthusiasts from across the state. We look forward to seeing all of you at dinner!

24 Hours of Daytona/Chili Cook-off – at 12:30 pm – January 25

24 Hours of Daytona/Chili Cook-off – at 12:30 pm – January 25

January 25-26 we will see the very first endurance race of the 2020! That’s right the 24 hours of Daytona is January 25-26. What better way to celebrate the kickoff of the racing season of 2020 than having a watch and chili party with BMWCCA of Iowa?

The last few years the chili party was held at MB2 and combined with with racing but this year we are going to try something a little bit different. While racing and chili are both great on their own, a belly full of chili and high g-forces tend not to mix very well. What does mix well with a belly full of chili is sitting on a couch and watching other people endure high g-forces for 24 hours at one of the worlds most famous tracks.

The location of this great idea will be at Chris and Alison’s house at 6090 Notthingham Dr. Johnston IA. There you will find a large TV on the main floor and large TV and stereo system in the basement both tuned to coverage of the race from the drop of the green flag until the checkered flag waves. People are welcome to start showing up 1 hour before the green flag drops (race start is 1:35pm EST)and are welcome to stay as late as they desire or even stay over watching the race. They are also encouraged to bring their famous chili to have other people be the judge of if their’s is better or not. This may or may not be a contest so everyone plan on bringing their A game of chili Saturday!

There will also be board games and other activities if you are dragged along with your significant other and don’t find racing that enjoyable to watch. We can all be wrong at something.

If you do plan on watching the race from the green to the checkered and would like to stay the entire time please let Chris and Alison know a head of time by emailing Chris at

We look forward to seeing everyone and kicking off 2020 with BMWCCA of Iowa right! Now lets all gather together and cheer for a BMW M8 GTE to win!
