« on: January 17, 2016, 04:29:55 pm »
I've heard rumours that the date has been moved to early May this year from the usual September date.
Anyone with more info?

Yes. Have a look at Pta BMW Club year program on Www.bmwclubs.co.za for dates.
Moved due to the closeness to BMWdays later the year.

Personally, I think it's a mistake to move the date of this popular event to accommodate Motorrad days

BMW is celebrating its 100th year on 20 August 2016.
Starting in New Zeeland and rolling around the world.
South Africa BMW clubs will also be involved.
I think the ECO's date is moved to accommodate the 100 year celebrations.

I have the dates as 5 to 8 May for the GS Challenge. Venue I believe will be the same as last year.

Adriaan is reg. die idee agter die 100 jaar vieringe is dat daar die hele "dag" motorfiets gery gaan word. Oral om die wereld gaan daar n BMW ry solank dit die dag is, maak nie saak waar jy in die wereld is nie.
