Our NCCBMWCCA tours are open to all. Being a member has one special benefit.

The tours are subsidized by the club.

Any non-member (excluding special people coming with a member) wanting to attend must contact me. They will be required to pay the full cost for the tour. Joining NCCBMWCCA will be cheaper than paying the cost difference for two people.

If they want - they can use me as recommending them....member #317417

OK?

PS: We already have 14 people registered for the tour ---

To quote the owner = "The restaurant holds 100, the porch holds 40, and we can put table cloths on top of the cars. Bring it on!!!"

All - this will be a very fun event...RESERVE NOW!!!

Do you have to be 18 to attend the tour solo or can you be under 18? Questions comes from someone on 1addicts, they are 17.

i'd have to defer to Bob on this one, but personally, it would be nice to have every car have at least 1 passenger to serve as a co-pilot (hint hint people :)). it can get pretty confusing sometimes (and dangerous) for a solo driver to read the directions and drive at the same time. some people more experienced and older than 17 have a hard time with this :), so i would think he/she should really try to find a cabinmate.

We enjoy people of every age on our tours, from very young to very old, like me.

That being said, how a person handles himself on the road is a factor that impacts everyone. We will likely have 50 or more cars on some very busy back roads. After our officers determine the legal requirement, and if in his favor, he is the only one who can determine if he should be with us.

I forgot that one tidbit of info. They will have a friend w/ them. presumably he/she is also under 18. My question had more to do w/ the waiver each paticipant has to sign and the ability of a minor to sign a legal document.

Bimmernupe and others;

Persons under the age of 21 may drive in NCCBMWCCA tours. I have a BMWCCA signature form that requires both the parents/guardians sign and this signature must be notarized.

I welcome everyone to our tours, especially if they are card carrying members of NCCBMWCCA. There are a tremendous number of varied programs for everyone to enjoy in the club, not just tours.

If anyone needs this form, before registering, they may email me at MirnBob2@<hidden> or call me at 410-602-0175.

As of Feb 26 we have 55 people registered to attend!!!!

Darn, Cary and I aren't returning from our trip to Barbados until late on April 25. It's killing me to miss my very first 'event.' Have fun without us -- this time around.
