Andy Wiest Ends Term
On December 27, 2023, we held our annual end-of-the-year lunch at Formula Brewing in Issaquah. Formula Brewing was a last-minute substitute for the Triple XXX, as the Triple XXX property was sold in November and the restaurant has been closed.
Formula Brewing provided a nice alternative site. However, it isn’t big enough to host Burgers & BMW in May, so we’ll be looking for another location and maybe even a name change for the event.
The lunch event drew about 30 members. It was also the last event during Andy Wiest’s three-year run as chapter president. To show our appreciation for a job well done, we presented Andy with a copy of M Love, a very nice book from the 50th anniversary of BMW M in 2022, plus a nice BMW M blanket. Picture Andy spending his winter wrapped in his blanky while visions of M Cars dance in head.
