This is the BCCMC Social Calendar for 2017. If you want to coordinate an event please let us know by emailing email@example.com. All it needs to be is something that you would like to do that may be interesting to other club members. When you let us know we will announce the activity through the British Briefs Newsletter, Club Activities Calendar on this Website and email blasts. We want to have as many activities as possible on our calendar so everyone can find something to enjoy. Our LBC’s need exercise so let’s get out and drive them as much as possible. We are relying on you to help sponsor events throughout the year. We look forward to hearing from you!
