Fall Color Tour, Saturday October 1

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

OK, let’s admit it.  The weather guessers have no idea what the weather is going to be like on Saturday.  I listened to three weather reports and received three different forecasts.   Come prepared.  I’m going to RainX my windshield.  That is usually adequate to drive AWAY any nearby precipitation!

Here’s what we’re doing:    This Saturday, Oct 1, members from SLC and points south, meet on the EAST side of the State Capitol at 9am for a 9:30am departure, north to Ogden and Rainbow Gardens.   We will take a route that avoids freeways, but is efficient to get us to the meeting location for those from the north.

The northerners will meet at Rainbow Gardens (mouth of Ogden Canyon, see attached map) where we’ve met previously, at 10:30am.  After the two groups congregate and have a humanities break, at approximately 11am, Pat & Donna will lead us the rest of the way up the scenic route to our picnic spot in the Monte Cristo Pass.

Please remember that this event is BYOL. (Bring Your Own Lunch)   Hey, if you wanted a free lunch, you should have shown up on the Alpine Loop Tour a couple of weeks ago!    BTW, If you weren’t there, you missed a great drive and tasty lunch.

If you are wanting club shirts, key fobs, or any of our merchandise, bring your cash as Rich will have boxes of BMCU products for sale.  Everyone does have a BMCU decal on their window, don’t they?

Rumor has it that since this is our LAST scheduled driving event, there will be drawings for really cool prizes, also.

Cruise-In at the Garage Grill, 9/26

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

OK, sports fans.  Looks like the weather is going to cooperate and give us great temps for the Monday evening Impromptu Cruise-In and It’s FREE!!!   You asked for more impromptu events and here’s one that is awesome.

Come on!  Admit it.  This is going to be a lot more fun than watching the Presidential Debate.  Heck, set the DVR and then you can watch it later when you’re in a good mood.

This is going to be a bit different because of the hours of the event and the fact that we are piggy-backing onto another function.   For this Impromptu affair, we will meet at the Cruise-In.  The hours are basically 5pm-8pm.   Now here’s the kool thing.   You don’t have to be there at 5pm!  And, if you don’t want to or cannot stay until 8pm, you don have to!    How sweet is that!!!

I’ll be showing up, 1122 Draper Pkwy (approx 12300 South in Draper) around 5pm, but since Jill doesn’t get off work until 6pm, she’ll stop by on her way home.  We’ll probably get a snack or dinner and then head home closer to 8pm, so you could do something similar.

This is a Cruise-In and that’s what we’ll do.  Get there when you can.  Look around for the other Britmobiles and park with us.   Since this is right at the Garage Grill, you can duck inside for an appetizer, 1/2 lb burger, pizza or whatever you want.  I ate there this week and the food is pretty good and the car theme inside is cool, too.

Take advantage of the good weather, other custom cars, great location (its at a car themed restaurant), rock & roll music and a bunch of car people.  The only thing missing will be you if you don’t stop by this BMCU impromptu event.

Alpine Loop Run, September 17th, 2016

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

The annual Alpine Loop Run will happen on Saturday September 17. We will meet at 8:30 AM or so on the east side of the South Towne Mall (take the 106th South exit off I-15 going east, enter the mall parking lot off 106th South or from State Street about a block north of 106th South). We will plan on departing at 9:00 AM.

Alpine Loop starting directions

For those who are coming from down south, we will be stopping at about 9:45 AM for bio-reconditioning at the C-Store and Chevron Station in Alpine just before SR 92 enters Alpine Canyon.

We will be heading to Big Springs Park again for lunch this year. When we get to the intersection of SR 92 and 189 in Provo Canyon, we will turn RIGHT and head down Provo Canyon approximately 1 mile to South Fork Road. We’ll turn left on South Fork Road and proceed about 3 miles to Big Springs Park for lunch. This is a lovely little park near the end of South Fork. There are bathrooms but no other facilities. Rodger and Jill Davis will be serving up tasty BBQ for lunch, so bring your appetites!

We are planning on cooking hamburgers and hot dogs.  The appropriate condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish,etc) will be available along with potato chips.  Plates, utensils, and napkins will be provided, also.   There is a rumor that Jill will be making some sort of goodie for dessert.

Bring what you’d like to drink since tastes vary so much it would be impossible to have what you’d want.

After lunch we’ll head up Provo Canyon to Heber/Midway and back to our homes. Should be a nice drive, hope to see you there! For those that want to try a little hill climb, the Guardsman pass road up out of Midway has just been repaved and is an absolutely lovely drive — and a test of your cooling system!


We need to know approximately how many people there will be so that we don’t run out of food, nor purchase way too much.
