Well, it is that time of year. The 5th “Ride to the Ranch” sponsored by the First Coast Chapter BMW CCA will be here soon. The 19th of May to be exact. I know it is a long drive for the members, but we would enjoy having as many of you attend as possible. First thing is, this will be a no-cost event. Since the event is on Saturday, everyone is welcome to come down on Friday if you would like. There are hotels nearby in Lady Lake, Wildwood, The Villages, Leesburg, and Belleview. If you want more "adventure",  you are welcome to camp out for the weekend. With 500 acres we have plenty of space to do so.

Below are the specifics regarding the cookout:


All Day Saturday, come early and stay as long as you like. Lunch will be served around 1:00 to 1:30 PM.

Events at the Cookout:

  • A scenic drive in the area for those who want see the sights around the area. A map will be provided.
  • A Poker Run of around 45 minutes to an hour in length beginning at the ranch and ending back at the ranch. Buy in will be $10.00 per participant with 50% going to the winner and 50% to the Ronald McDonald House. The Poker Run will start at 12:00 PM and finish before the meal is served.
  • A "Favorites" Concours where everyone votes for their favorite three cars and there will be awards for the top two cars. This event will be hosted by the Florida Suncoast Chapter,
  • A tour of the "Carriage Museum" located just down the road from the ranch. This one is still up-in-the-air as I need to meet with the owners this coming weekend.
