Personally, I can’t wait. There were plenty of high points for 2013, but there were a few things better left behind. For our chapter, the new color printed and electronic Breeze being a huge plus in 2013. On a personal level, the F1 race at Austin was great. Access to the event was better this year and the track walk after the race was very cool. On the not so positive side would be my personal experiences with draining signifcant amounts of motor oil without using a drain plug, at not one but two driving schools this year. Hope not to repeat that in 2014. On a more serious note the low point of 2013 was the passing of a family member just before Thanksgiving. My sincere thanks to the editor for the December article and to everyone for their thoughts and well wishes. Jackie and family are doing well. Her dad will be missed. On to a brighter 2014. The Windy City BMW 2014 events calendar is off to a fast start. By the end of February there will be three karting events, the I3 introduction at Perillo BMW, an early peek at the Chicago Auto Show, and the Annual Dinner (have you heard it’s at a fantastic new venue not to be missed?). It is a very active schedule with dates also confrmed for two driving schools, the autocross season, and a new spring tour referred to as the Spring Fling. Weekend chores will struggle to fnd time this year. Welcome to 2014 and hope to see you at the Annual Dinner! JOHN KELLY PLAN AHEAD! E92 & E82 SCHROTH QUICK FIT BELTS. . . . .
