2018 Ride to the Ranch
Well, it is that time of year, Spring is here (at least in Florida). The 5th “Ride to the Ranch: sponsored by the First Coast Chapter BMW CCA will be here soon. The 19th of May to be exact. I know it is a long drive for the members, but we would enjoy having as many of you attend as possible. One thing to know is that this is a no cost event. The cost is being shared by the Florida BMW CCA Chapters.
Since the event is on Saturday, everyone is welcome to come down on Friday if that would work better for you. There are hotels nearby in Lady Lake, The Villages, Leesburg, and Belleview. If you want to be “adventurous”, you are welcome to camp out for the weekend. With 500 acres we have plenty of space to do so.
Below are the specifics regarding the cookout.
Registration is open on MotorsportReg.com. Use the following link to register:
