The Longest Day Driving School Auction


If you win, we’ll pay half your entry to The Longest Day Driving School!

BY BOB DICKELMAN

At the Annual Meeting a couple of months ago, I almost jumped for joy when I won the certificate that would have paid half my entry fee for The Longest Day Driving School on June 8-10. Unfortunately, a broken right foot prevented me from doing that – and it’s going to keep me from participating in June, which the foot doctor recently confirmed for me. I thought about ignoring the doc’s advice, but something an instructor told me a long time ago at a 3-day Skip Barber Racing School kept popping into my head: “If you’re going to miss a pedal, the one to miss is not the brake.”

So, my bad luck could be your good luck. I didn’t feel right about selling the certificate outright, so I suggested to the BMW CCA Iowa board of directors that we hold an auction. Highest bidder wins, and I will donate all proceeds to the BMW Car Club of America Foundation.

The intrinsic value of the prize is $169.50, which is half the cost of a 2-day student registration at LDDS, so save yourself some money and bid generously (and often)! If your bid is the highest one by May 31, 2018, you’ll be the winner!

How to Bid

In the bidding form below, please enter your bid, name and e-mail address. The highest bid will be shown there (without your name, e-mail address or other identification), so you can monitor what’s going on and raise your bid if necessary.

You may bid as many times as you’d like, up to the deadline of 11:59 p.m. on May 31, 2018. The highest bidder will be notified for payment, which at the request of the board will be made to Bob Dickelman; he then will submit a check in the same amount to the BMW Car Club of America Foundation. If the highest bid exceeds the value of the prize, the BMW Car Club of America Iowa Chapter will issue a check to the BMW Foundation for the difference. Any disputes will be decided by the BMW CCA Iowa board of directors.

Good luck!

Current Highest Bid – $10
