Merry Christmas Members! Save the date and join your fellow Trillium members for our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Christmas Dinner to finish off 2019. This year's party will be held at the Latvian Centre on Saturday, November 30. At the AGM starting at 5:00PM, we will go over club financials and events of the year, discuss upcoming events, announce the results of the election, along with introducing the new board. We encourage members to come out and participate. Starting at 6:00PM the Christmas dinner will begin.
The term of Trillium BMW’s current Board of Directors is coming to a close. These past 2 years have gone by quickly and it’s now time for Trillium to accept nominations for a new Board of Directors.
Trillium BMW has a robust membership base and is a wonderful club to be a part of. But Trillium BMW cannot thrive or survive without the support and participation of its volunteers.
Members, the dates for next year's driving school are now available. We will be hold our 4 primary events at the Grand Prix track at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport). In addition to our two GTA-local events, we will be holding one outside event at Calabogie (near Ottawa) and another at Pittsburgh International Race Complex (near, well . . . ah Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania). These two events will require a deposit of $100 for each driver planning to attend to show committment to the event. If committment is insufficient, we will not hold the event and the deposit will be returned.
Effective June 3, 2019, BMW Group Canada will offer a Membership Reward Rebate Programme for Trillium Chapter members based on Canadian eligibility criteria, with graduated rebate values similar to the U.S. programme. The Terms and Conditions, and rebate allowances are as follows:
Terms and Conditions:
All participants in Trillium BMW Club driving schools and racing schools must bring a completed tech inspection form to each event. After inspection, it must be filled and signed by a provincially licensed mechanic or equivalent in the US.
Any garage with a licensed mechanic can perform these inspections. Fees for the inspection vary by garage.
As of 2017 (TBA 2018), the minimum standard for accepted helmets at BMW Club of Canada, Trillium Chapter driving events will be SA2010. Please do not confuse M2010 with SA2010. M is for 'M'otorcyle, not 'M'otorsport. We do not accept motorcycle (i.e. M-rated) helmets. For more information on helmet standards, please see the web site of the Snell Memorial Foundation at http://www.smf.org/stds.
