Annual NJ Chapter Pick Your Pumpkin Rally to Benefit NORWESCAP Oct. 30, 2021  Come join us for the NJ chapter's annual Fall benefit rally renamed as the Pick Your Pumpkin Rally and moved up on the calendar for better weather and fall colors. Come out and have a great time roaming scenic back roads of New Jersey while cursing the rallymasters' ridiculous clues. In what has become a new tradition of the NJ Chapter, the rally is being run as a charity event to benefit NORWESCAP - an organization dedicated to helping low income families in northwest New Jersey through a variety of services including a food bank and nutrition assistance. Clues and final route are still being finalized so check back here for updates. In keeping with the date, both the route and clues will have a seasonal and ghoulish theme. For those of you who are new to the rally, the format is that cars are released onto the route at intervals. You are given a list of route instructions and clues/questions to answer along the way. The car with the highest score in each class wins with ties determined by time. Cars with a driver and navigator enter the Competition Class (counts toward the chapter Driver Champ Series) and cars with 3 or more people are in Family Class. This is all for fun -  we will have some prizes that are provided by the club (and maybe a dealer or two) but come out for the drive along roads that you may not have driven before and the chance to get together with fellow club members. This is one of the few club events with driving involved that both children and non-members are welcome. Starting Point: Stanhope, NJ (just south of I-80, off Rte. 206) Location: Panera Bread parking lot, 30 International Drive S, Mount Olive Township NJ Registration on-site opens: 8:30 am Driver's meeting: 9:00 am First car off: about 9:15 am Ending Point: TBD We will be announcing the end point this year so that anyone who can't do the rally but wants to join us for food and laughs can do so. Cars will be released in order of registration date/time so register early if you want to be among the first cars sent out! Cost: $25 per car (collected at the event, exact change much appreciated) - larger donations accepted with gratitude- all net proceeds donated to NORWESCAP. You may register on-site on the day of the event if this is a last-minute decision to participate - all members are welcome.

About Us

The New Jersey Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America was established in 1970 and today has of over 3,000 members in New Jersey and the surrounding area. Our purpose is to provide services and organize events that benefit and interest our members. Our goal is to help you get the most enjoyment and satisfaction from BMW ownership, and to create a community where members can share their enthusiasm for these terrific cars.

The Chapter holds a monthly meeting for members that often consist of technical presentations and demonstrations. Our social events are well know as fun, family affairs and offer a great opportunity for members and their families to meet and mingle.

Since we are a car club, we place a lot of emphasis on the safe, proper operation of the automobile. We offer several “behind-the-wheel” activities in a learning environment that are designed to improve your driving skills. These consist of our Street Survival program for teens, Autocross events and our highly regarded Driver School program.

Since this is a BMW car club, we also organize competitive events that explore the limits of these awesome cars. We hold regular timed Autocross events and sponsor several Club Races throughout the season.

If you, like most car nuts, can’t resist modifying, improving and maintaining your prized BMW’s, the club has a terrific collection of resources for you. The scope and depth of knowledge among our membership almost guarantees that you’ll find an expert who will gladly offer advice on any detail, and the club maintains a technical library and toolbox for your use.

This club exists for you, the membership, and is run by active members. What we do as a club is determined by you so, if you would like to see other activities, or additional services offered, please bring these suggestions forward.

So, join the club, come to a meeting, and meet your fellow members. We are sure that you will make new friends who share your interests – and passion – for these great cars!
