    10/13/2012 - ///M Club Day @ BMW Performance Center

    Oct 13
    The National Capital and Tarheel Chapters are headed back to South Carolina on October 13th for our second ///M Club Day driving event of 2012 at the BMW Performance Center.
    As always, the Performance Center provides current model ///M cars, instructors, gas, tires, lunch and a first-class facility for a fun-filled day. Just show up ready to drive! The school’s focus is to improve your driving skills through a combination of driving exercises, classroom instruction and competitive events. No helmets or previous driving school experience is required. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.
    This school is a special program designed by the Performance Center staff specifically for BMW CCA chapters. It will be similar to previous ///M Club Day events, which have included instruction on proper driving position, vehicle dynamics, car-control skills, weight-transfer, oversteer/understeer and improved vision. The day is divided into morning and afternoon sessions which mix skill exercises and competitive events, including skid pad wet/dry courses, braking and handling practice, autocross and more.
    We will be driving current model BMW ///M Cars for this event. Please note that the Performance Center staff continually makes changes to this program, so session contents and the cars available may vary from one school to the next.
    Our event hotel is the Greenville Marriott. The special BMW rate includes the breakfast buffet for up to two people plus Internet service. Register at: www.marriott.com/GSPAP and enter BMW as the Corporate code. The Marriott has a great lobby bar for getting together after the driving and dinner events. Remember, no food service is available for breakfast on Saturday morning at the Performance Center.

    Is registration really open? It looked to be closed until August when I checked it out.

    Odd, it wasn't open earlier. As a Tarheel member, am I safe to register online, or should I go through Stephen?

    I think there may be a combined registration for this one. You can register now since payment is deferred until time of the event.

    Yup, Doug gave me the same advice, so I went ahead.

    When does the first round of registration close?

    I've seen nothing posted and the dumbass lottery system the Tarheel group uses means I'm sitting here not knowing if I have a place, even though I registered on the first day it opened.

    Lottery system?
    I thought registration goes to 16 Tarheel and 16 NCC members first, then opened to any chapters.

    It does, but the way that Tarheel allocates their 16 is by lottery if more than 16 applications are received. It's enough to make me consider moving my home region to NCC. I know that they believe there's a valid reason for doing this, but my perspective that it is grossly unfair to those of us that are motivated and organized enough to get our registrations in promptly.

    Can't speak for them but my guess it's because the forms were mailed in.
    I don't think it's going to be a lottery since everything is going through MSReg and everyone's registrations are date stamped this year.

    We'll see. My communications with Stephen suggested that the same system would be used, regardless of the use of MSReg.
