Also when it rained, they let people run windows up.
This and the higher cost are the 2 reasons the BMW Club has fallen from favor.

I've been told that BMWCCA mandates things (not sure) that increase cost but I wish Norcal could make it more palatable to participate.

The instructors need evaluating because some of them should not be instructing or need more instruction on instructing (nice sentence). I have seen a lot driving and lack of vision by instructors that is unforgivable. Something is seriously wrong when GGR BMWCCA says not to share video of instructors. Yikes! I have my flame suit on.

I really would love GGR BMWCCA to get back to a point where they are holding great events that don't break the bank.
