Iowa BMW CCA Events are starting up again.

We have had to cancel some of our events out of an abundance of caution.  Up coming events may be canceled if we think the risk is not worth holding the event.  We will monitor the state of COVID cases and try to give as much advanced warning as possible if an event is canceled.

CANCELED == BMW Informal Social – The Chicken, West Des Moines, IA at 6:30 pm – July 14

President’s Article May 2020

President’s Article May 2020

As the world around us has changed recently, nothing like this has been experienced by any living human being, so many of us sports lovers have had to change our television viewing habits. Following the recent broadcast of the 24 Hours of Daytona, motorsports has come to abrupt halt, just as has the NCAA basketball championships, the start of Major League Baseball, the NBA and NHL.

All of our car club activities have also come to a screeching halt. There are only so many times I can vacuum the house or wash the windows and change the oil and brakes on the cars, so as I was looking for something else to view on TV, I have become a big fan of YouTube TV.

In the past, I only used YouTube as a resource when trying to solve a problem when working on a car project, not really for entertainment. But recently I have discovered a whole new world of videos that has been created for millions of viewers.

I have become a fan of automotive related videos. My favorite channels are from BMW NA, BMW CCA, local chapters such as the St. Louis Chapter. Other BMW aficionados have uploaded thousands of hours of automotive related videos and there is a large volume of information from past BMW CCA activities such as Oktoberfest, local autocross events and other events which local members have been involved.

No matter what your tastes in automotive entertainment, car detailing, car reviews, car comparisons, there is something for every automotive enthusiast on YouTube. So while we are waiting for life to get back to normal, check out some of the really entertaining channels and find something to fill the void left in your life by this current health care crisis. We hope life gets back to normal soon and we see you soon in person at one of our Iowa Chapter activities.
