The 2018 breakfast calendar has been released! 
Be sure to make it to the annual BMW TCD Awards dinner on Saturday, Feb 10th! There will be hijinx, hilarity, and a good time for all.
Who has ridden on icy streets with studded tires? Might be worth a shot just to extend the riding season!

New & Old business:

Breakfast Schedule (Calendar)The official start time of the Sunday Breakfast has been moved back to 9:00am. While some want to get there early, it makes it difficult for new members to feel welcome when everybody is finished eating before the 9:00 am starting time. We're a friendly group, let's make sure we roll out the welcome mat for new attendees!

Membership Renewal:  Welcome to 2018!  Membership periods now run 12 months from the date of your last payment.  You will receive a renewal notice via email, with a link to renew online via PayPal. You can still renew with a check by mailing a membership form and $20 to the club P.O. box.  If you're not a member, it's a great time to join! Just log into the TCD Website, register and pay online.

Some TCD members take advantage of frozen lakes to keep themselves out of trouble until the snow melts.
