Fourth Annual "Ride to the Ranch"

Tiger Head Ranch

About this event

Due to unforeseen circumstances this event was rescheduled from April 25th to October 10, 2015.

We invite you to attend the 4th Annual “Ride to the Ranch” hosted by the First Coast Chapter BMW CCA on the 10th of October. Please come join members from several different BMW CCA Chapters. We know it is a long drive for some of you, but we would enjoy having as many members as can attend.

This is a no cost event to the members or their guests attending, the Chapters are picking up the tab as in the past. So that is one less reason for not attending that has been removed.

If you are coming on Saturday morning we invite you to form a group to drive to the event. First Coast Chapter has done this for the past three years and everyone enjoys the drive with other members. Come on Friday evening, if you want, or spend Saturday night, there is is plenty of space to set up a tent and camp. If you are not into camping, there are plenty of hotels nearby in Lady Lake, Leesburg, The Villages, and Belleview.

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

  • A scenic drive in the area for those who want see the sights around the area.
  • A "Members Favorite" Concours where everyone votes for their favorite three cars and have some kind of award.
