Northern California's largest and most active BMW motorcycle Club


Christmas Party / Passing of the Baton

Dec 3, 2011 - Always the frugal bunch, RCB membership figured out an inexpensive way to both celebrate the transition from Jewell administration to Olson administration *and* celebrate the holidays ... We combined them! Once again, our gracious hosts at A&S opened their showroom and over 100 of us took advantage to enjoy and remember another year of riding, friends and the holiday season.

The potluck options were numerous and filling, and once everyone's appetite was satiated, a short meeting began. Fred (somewhat emotionally) thanked the membership for four fun years and pledged his support to incoming president Gordy. And Gordy in turn thanked Fred for the last four year of stewardship and pledged to maintain the standards established by Fred.

A perpetual plaque of all RCB presidents from 1982's Earl Mattingly through 2011's Fred Jewell was presented to Fred ... and then taken back away to be hung at A&S in the RCB corner for all to view. A lot of people gave much effort to build this club - Remembering their effort seems more than appropriate.

The evening wrapped up with one of Gordy's patented raffles, and all retired with loads of new memories.

Our next planned event will be in 2012. Until then, happy holidays!
