    On Tuesday 9th November 2021 we held our first BMW Club Queensland Country members Zoom meeting. We had a number of committee members, country members and the Chair of BMW Clubs Australia, Garry Smee drop in to make sure everything was happening the way it should. We had a spread of 2,250 kilometres from Kewerra Beach in the north to Port Macquarie down south and out as far west as Inverell.

    Keep your eye out for further meetings like this as there were some great ideas put forward from our far-flung members. Thanks all.

    Now that we do not issue a physical membership card annually, we need a way for you to prove that you are a current member. Our club software system is very comprehensive and provides a mobile version so that important information is with you all the time in the form of a mobile app. Heres how to use it.

    Go to your app store and search Wild Apricot.

    The one you want is called "Wild Apricot for Members"

    Download it, then open it. You use the SAME log in credential that you use to log into the BMWCQ web page on your desktop computer, they are the same.

    When the app launches, you will see three (3) tabs at the bottom of the page, one for upcoming events, then My tickets, thats what you have booked for, then My profile. 

    This is the one you want so you can see your membership card is MY CARD.

    This will show you your name, membership number, when you joined , when your membership is due and what your membership level is. Any problems with this contact me ( or the membership officer (

    2: Click on "My event registrations"

    3: Click on the date field below the event name

    4: Click on "Cancel Registration"

    5: Click the "Cancel Registration" button

    There you go.. If all else fails, check the contact page and ring the relevant committee member or me, the president..

    Thanks Gary

                  VIDEO HERE            PHOTOS HERE                      Sunday, 28th June, 2020 was the day we held our first post-Covid lockdown social drive for BMW Club Queensland. Thanks to the great work of our drive coordinator, John Tait, we were able to structure the drive within the guidelines of the stage 2 rules.

    There were 3 groups, maximum of 20 people per group, separated by an hour on the road.  We headed west from Dinmore to south to Lake Moogerah for a short stop, then onto Boonah where we all split up to find lunch or have a picnic. It felt a bit strange not gathering at the end, but it was great to get out onto the road, even if there was a short section of roadworks and MUD...John Tait!
