British Field Day will be held at Liberty Park again this year on Saturday, June 20. It is a time for all British car and motorcycle enthusiasts to get their rigs out of the garage, clean them up and get them running as well as can be expected. All British cars and bikes in any condition from 100-point restorations to works-in-progress or an old daily beater are welcome. The more the merrier!

Registration starts at 8 AM. We hope to have most bikes and cars in place by 9 AM and we encourage folks displaying vehicles to try to stay until 3 PM, but if you are late and can only make it for a couple of hours, that’s fine too! The registration fee is $10 per bike or car. A $5 donation is requested per adult. Kids 12 and under are free.

Volunteers are requested to help set up on Friday, June 19 at 6:00PM. If you can help, please bring a hammer, stapler, gloves, etc.

Neither Wind Nor Rain…

June 7th, 2015 | Posted in Event Reports

Early Saturday morning, 23 May, thirty BMCU members were enticed to the South Jordan meeting place pavilion, by the aroma of fresh, hot coffee and newly baked donuts. The forecast for rain wasn’t going to stop this group from having fun! Jim handed out tickets for the raffle drawing as Gary Meldrum had us drawing naughty playing cards for our Poker Run.

We arrived in Nephi right on schedule with only one serious problem encountered going past the NSA facility on Redwood Rd. That problem, as it turned out, would haunt us most of the weekend. One dead skunk! Seems that skunk wanted to accompany Barry and marked his trailer with the VERY distinct skunk scent. To Barry’s credit, at every stop along the way, he went to the local car wash and attempted to extinguish the stink. This gave the title of Skunk Works, a whole new meaning.

Off to Kanab!

May 17th, 2015 | Posted in News

Make certain that your tank is full so that you don’t have to walk to the nearest gas station.  This is going to be one  of the most fantastic tours the club has ever made.  Why?  Because how many times can you drive your LBC to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World?

Remember that I mentioned some really cool things that were going to be done?  Well, you now know that we’re going to be having a Poker Run as we drive south.  We are also going to have Official BMCU Memorial Day Tour T-Shirts!

As a Tourer, you’ll  receive your shirt.  Also, as a Tourer, you’ll have an opportunity to win the FANTASTIC prize from the Poker Run!

But wait, there’s more!!!   Next week we will be revealing at least two more things that will be happening during this Tour.  You’ll not want to miss them.  It just gets better and better.  A sweet heart of a deal!

If you are worrying about the weather, don’t.  We travel rain, snow or shine.

INVITATION:  we welcome members who are not going on the Tour, to come to the meeting location, 11010 S. Redwood Rd, at 7am, to see us off AND to come with us for as long as you’d like.  We will be making a short stop in Saratoga Springs and another stop in Nephi.  These would be great places to turn around before getting any further south.   We encourage you to join us as we head south.

REMEMBER:

When:        Next Saturday, May 23  at 7am      Wheels up at 7:30am SHARP!         
Where:       11010 S. Redwood Rd., South Jordan, UT

SEE YOU THERE!!!

Chalk Creek Valley Drive a success!

May 4th, 2015 | Posted in Event Reports

Usually, after one of the BMC’s events, there is an immediate (same day) response regarding the drive.  You may have noticed that there has been NOTHING posted regarding yesterday’s Chalk Creek Valley Drive.

Wondering if the drive really happened?  Wondering if anyone showed up for the drive?  Wonder if the drive got rained on?  Wonder if the drive was just too long?  Wondering if it was a fun drive?  Wondering why you did not participate?

The answers to these questions are: Yes, Yes, No, No, Hell Yes, and, you’ll have to answer that one yourself.

The first Chalk Creek Valley Drive was a RESOUNDING success!  Rob Foye had charted an excellent route on roads that the club, and many of the participants, had never driven.  It was a beautiful drive through gorgeous scenery.

It was great to see the members who came to see us off.  See you on the next drive.  There were 19 vehicles and 30 members that enjoyed an exhilarating tour of northeaster Utah, all topped off with a scrumptious meal at Taggart’s Grill.

I’m going to leave the rest of the write-up of the drive to Rob, but I do need to say just a couple of things.

Great Drive, Rob!

This drive had our stops much farther apart than usual.  This made for some fantastic touring and smiling faces.

I heard nothing but excited comments about where we went and the manner of the drive.

The comment by Kelly Honeyman, said it best.  “It’s going to take three weeks just to get the smile off my face!”
