Family and friends are welcome at this event!!! No need to be a club member, everyone is welcome. Always a lot of fun.
We are headed back to Principal Park for our annual Cubs game. The game is Sunday, August 28th and our Cubbies will be meeting with the St Paul Saints at 1:08pm.
As in previous years, we’ll have two connected sky boxes with both indoor and outdoor seating. This year, we’ll be behind home plate. Things will be a bit different this year in regard to tickets and food. The tickets are $15/person and attendees are on their own for food and drink. There will be an attendant in our box taking orders. Each person will be responsible for their own food bill.
Once again we’ll be showing a few of our BMW’s in front of the park.
Tickets are limited and go fast. For tickets, contact David Trachtenberg at Secretary@bmwia.org
