BMW Club Oxford Section Report for December 2017

Sunday 10th December – Christmas Indoor meeting
I spent an hour clearing the car and road of snow ready for my intrepid journey to Uffingham, as I sat in the car, finally ready for the off my mobile pinged up with a message to say the event had been cancelled due to the wintery conditions – lucky I say…..
16th January onwards – Venue Change

Oxford Section Sat Nav Project and Survey
Earlier in the year we announced the start of the Oxford Section Sat Nav Project between the Oxford Section and North Oxford Garage. The aim of the project is to improve our collective knowledge of how to use our Sat Nav’s and to help members get the best from them.
We have produced an electronic newsletter, and now we are working on a booklet supported by a local dealer of top 100 tips. The first of a number of workshops is organised for January addressing some of the issues identified by our members.
Drop me a line if you would like an insight into the results
