Happy New Year!

Posted by on Jan 8, 2019 in News | 0 comments

As we leave behind our year of GIVING, we would challenge you to keep that generosity in your hearts as we move forward into 2019.

There are no words to describe the overwhelming feeling of joy when we presented our $1000 donation to The Covenant House Orlando. To be honest, it was just a small drop in the bucket for their obvious needs, but they acted as if they had “won the lottery”. It was truly a humbling experience.

We have several fun events coming up this month and will continue to look for opportunities to share with those less fortunate throughout the year ahead. Your input is appreciated. 

We hope to see you at an upcoming event or activity and as always, your ideas and help to coordinate and/or plan are welcomed! Thank you to all of you who continue to step up and to those have provided so much positive feedback. You are appreciated!
– Robin Butler


“Thank you all for your recent donation of $1,000 to help the kids at Covenant House Florida! We are very appreciative of your gift!”
– Amy Lee Director of Development

Bob Ziegler January 2019 Member Spolight

Posted by on Jan 8, 2019 in Members Spotlight | 0 comments

Our Member Spotlight for January is our new chapter president, Bob Ziegler.

“Greeting to All our Sunshine BMW CCA members. I  have been asked to be January’s member spotlight. So here goes first a little BMW history!

I purchased my first BMW in 1980, since then I have purchased 26 more BMW’s. Presently I have 4 BMW’s, a 1984 Burgundy 633CSi, 1987 Euro 730i, 1998 328i and finally a 2004 330CIC. All run and all drive! Does anyone really have only 1 Bimmer?

I have been in a total of 4 different BMW CCA Chapters; the first was in New York, then Everglades, then Suncoast where I was the President for 6 years and presently the last 3 years in Sunshine where I am currently the President.

I consider myself to be not just a BMW car lover but a true “Car Guy”. I love all cars and have owned many American cars including Muscle Cars. Besides my love of Bimmers I also have a passion for British Sports cars. I am the past President of a British Sports Car Club. I have owned several Italian and Japanese sport and regular cars as well.

I no longer do much in the way of driving event but rather spend my time traveling to car shows. Amelia Island and Euro fest in South Carolina have been some of my recently attended trips.

BUT my favorite event for the past several years has been The Vintage now being held in Hot Springs NC. This is not really a car show but rather a huge gathering (about 650 cars) of classic BMW owners. The venue is great and the people are the best. If you love BMW’s, even if you do not own a classic BMW, you should try to attend this event.

I look forward to attending many Sunshine BMW CCA events and events put on by other groups as I can and meeting as many Sunshine members as possible.

My thoughts have never wavered when it comes to club members, it’s never about the CARS it is all about the PEOPLE!”
