Stacks Image 7427FREUDE am FAHREN – JOY of DRIVING

Membership in BMWCSA includes our Newsletter. For 2017, we will be experimenting with two newsletter formats that we hope will entertain and inform our members while reducing the cost and effort. Please be patient with us as we develop these formats – BMWCSA is a volunteer and not-for-profit organization–and it will be a journey of continuous experimentation and, hopefully, improvement!

The old Freude am Fahren will be produced in a 16-page format delivered and mailed to your home and to our advertising sponsors. It will continue to offer a mix of club activities, news and technical articles. Due to the work and high costs involved, we are targeting for four issues per year on a quarterly basis.

Joy of Driving is our new monthly digital effort designed to fill the months in between the quarters. It will be emailed and devoted more to reporting on club activities and news flashes. It is an approach now used by many clubs as part of the trend to E-News.

We are open to all comments, letters to the editor, articles, photos and especially any help. Please contact Chris Tworek at or 403-238-8049.

Ideas and opinions are those of the authors, without authentication by or liability to BMWCSA, its Editors, Directors or Officers.
