When: Dec 16 / 9AM To Dec 16 / 2pm
We are proud to an active part of the BMW Club of Georgia's Christmas Toy collection and ride this year. This is an event that the BMW Club of Georgia started and it has, with the help of the local Georgia BMW dealers, successfully helped give kids-in-need a happy Christmas in past years. We will have a collection box setup in our showroom where y'all can drop by and donate (NEW) toys big or small. On the day of the ride we will load all the toys up in our shop van and head out on the group ride to hand deliver these toys to the Town's County Sheriff's office where they will take over the job of dispersing the donated toys to local North Georgia children in need. It doesn't matter what kind of bike you own... EVERYONE is encouraged to join in the giving spirit to help the Club help our local children in need.
A few details on the day and route taken....
* GROUP RIDE SAT DEC 16th , kickstands up at 9AM -- please arrive early if participating in the ride, we will be meeting another group a the sheriffs office so time of departure is important. We will have plenty of hot coffee and donuts to warm you up before departure!
* The donation box is in our showroom... please feel free to stop by and donate any NEW toys big or small, or if it fits on your bike strap it down and bring it along!
* ALL the toys will be given to children in need in the North Georgia area. The Town's County Sheriff's department has a program specifically for helping families in need provide a Christmas for their children. We are participating and helping with their program so they will be responsible for distribution to the families once everything is dropped off.
* EVERYONE is welcome to join the ride and encouraged to Donate, it doesn't matter what you ride or if you are a member of the club or not. The BMW Club of Georgia is the sponsor and organizer, but they want to encourage other clubs and all riders and customers to join in the giving spirit.
* ROUTE -- Our route will leave from here at Hourglass and head up 985. There will be a gas stop just north of Gainesville just off 985. (distance from gas stop to destination is approx. 62 miles) Once we are North of the busyness we will branch off on hwy 384 and head through Helen. From Helen we will continue north up the beautiful and curvy hwy 75 all the way to Hiawassee and on to the Sheriffs office.
* After meeting up with the other group at the Sheriffs office we will deliver the toys and get together with the other group ride from BMW of Atlanta for a large group photo of everyone. Once this is done everyone is free to split up and head back whatever way they want or get together and form some impromptu groups. (there isn't a bad route home from there).
