Trapper’s Loop

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Time for a drive!

Saturday morning we will meet at 9:30 am at the east end of the Hogle Zoo parking lot for a 10:00 departure.  The route will be familiar to all, up East Canyon over to Morgan, stop at the Chevron to fuel then over Trapper’s Loop to Pineview, then down Ogden Canyon to the BDO and head for the water tower and just north on 6th to Steiny’s where John and Joey will be looking for us for lunch.

Dust off those cars and come drive with us.

British Field Day approaches!

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

British Field Day will be held at Liberty Park again this year. 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!

There is something new this year in the food department that will enhance the Englishness of our event. Volunteers from the Liberty Wells CC will be serving a full English breakfast and Fish & Chips for lunch! All cooked on site and fresh as can be. To ensure that you can partake in these delicacies, we are asking folks to RSVP for either or both to BFDUtah@gmail.com. This way we will know how many meals to prepare.

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 20th at 6:00PM. If you can help, please bring a hammer, stapler, gloves, etc.

New BMCU email list, please sign up!

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

As you may have noticed, we’ve been having some trouble with our BMCU email list (bmcu@autox.team.net) for the last couple weeks. We have been unable to come to an acceptable resolution of the issues, so we have decided to move the list to a more reliable solution using a Google Group. You should have received an email invitation to join the group. If you didn’t, or need to use a different email address, you can go directly to the group’s site and request membership.

https://groups.google.com/d/forum/bmcu-members

Include a little about yourself in the request (your car and/or your name will be sufficient) so we will know the request is coming from a human — we will be manually approving all of the requests to keep the spambots out.

Please pass this information on to your friends in the club so that we make sure to reach everyone we can. Email me (webmaster@bmcutah.org) if you have any questions.

You will need a Google account, but please note that this does not mean you have to use a gmail.com email address. You can setup a Google account with any email address, or you can add a different email to your current Google account.

Antelope Island, Saturday May 10

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

The plan is to meet on the east side of the Capitol overlooking Memory Grove at 9:30 am for a 10:00 am departure, out Beck St. and the I-15 to Antelope Drive and left heading west.

Just over the freeway and passed Main St. we will meet at the little strip mall parking lot west of Burger King for our leisurely drive out the causeway to the island. Antelope Island is a Utah State Park and day use fee is $10 per vehicle or $5 for seniors and if so state “local senior” to the ranger in the booth with your ID ready. This is a picnic so pack accordingly. And after lunch there is no rush to leave as this is still a working ranch with lots to see. Look for owls in the trees and in the barn. The visitor’s center is always interesting where you may discover what you missed without taking it slow on the drive.

  • Capitol at 9:30 am
  • Burger King, Layton at aprox. 10:30 am
