Thanks To All Who Attended The Summer BBQ

Over 50 members enjoyed a great social at The Paddock Motor Club (https://paddockmotorclub.ca/) on July 21.  Right from the moment we entered the club we were warmly welcomed and treated as VIPs.  The state of the art decor, excellent service, and delicious lunch was just the beginning.  The real fun began with the race car and golf simulators, the viewing of Paddock's amazing collection of unique cars, or just catching up with friends over a cool drink.

Minimum Helmet Standards until 2020

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.
