Green Mountain Chapter Trailer Fund Update!


The Green Mountain Chapter has an exciting trailer fund update thanks to Scott Stewart of Pillar to Post Home Inspection! Scott has announced that he will be offering up to $400 in matching funds for donations to the Trailer Fund through the month of April! Please donate now, and hopefully the Green Mountain Chapter Trailer Fund can meet its fundraising goal by the end of the month! Our total is $670 as of April 7, and remember—we only need every member to donate $10 in order to meet our $1500 goal, and we’re just under halfway. Please donate so we can wrap up the trailer fund effort before the end of the month. We appreciate your support of the Green Mountain Chapter Trailer Fund!


Here’s a quick update from GMC President George Ohlweiler regarding a new project for the Green Mountain Chapter that will help make the setup and arrangement of driving events much more efficient in 2015.

All Members,

Our initial request for the “Trailer Fund” was an immediate success. However, the donations have come to an abrupt halt.
As of January 26th we have just over $500.00 in the bank. This is about one third of what is needed to start the process.
We only need everyone to donate at least $10.00 to make this happen.

Thank you to everyone that has already donated.

To assist in the “Trailer Fund”, please send your check or money order to Green Mountain Chapter BMW CCA, PO Box 735, Dorset, VT 05251.

Complete and accurate records will be kept on all donations. In the event that this project does not come to fruition—and I do not expect that to happen—Member donations may be refunded.

Thank you for your support in this Chapter project.


George Ohlweiler, President

Photos: Street Survival at Thunder Road Speedbowl

Last October, the Green Mountain Chapter hosted its second Street Survival teen-driver education event at the Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, Vermont. As with other Street Survival courses, students in Barre were able to gain a better understanding of vehicle dynamics, vehicle capability, and car control. Take a look at the full photoset right here on Flickr.

Participants’ vehicles at Thunder Road ranged from a MINI to a Subaru Forester to an Audi S6 Avant—as with all Street Survival courses, the drivers are encouraged to drive the vehicles they drive on the street to get the best sense of how their vehicle behaves in the real world.
