About the Banquet
Once a year we take time to celebrate our accomplishments, showcase our path through the coming year, and generally reward ourselves for being the great club that we have always been. It is a time to socialize in a special occasion venue, with good food and great friends, and at an affordable price. That is how we mark our passing the new year into the next year. We feel that it is so important that it is even required in our bylaws.
That venue evolves from year to year. In recent years we have taken advantage of some of the unique dining establishments in the Kansas City area. From traditional Italian like Cinzette’s buffet to Cascone’s white tablecloths; the culinary school at the Johnson County Community College; the high end Embassy Suites on the Plaza; to even an enhanced pot luck / game night in Independence, we always mark the night as a culinary experience!
It is not just the food. We take time to honor our members who have excelled in our club riding challenges, our Sprit of Adventure Award, and other riding events like mileage awards. As the banquet takes place after the finalizing of our Annual Elections, we announce our club’s new Officers and Board of Directors. Passing the torch is always a significant event.
But what is a banquet without entertainment! You should always expect to have a good time. It might be a Silent Auction of rider targeted items, a professional DJ, a presentation by a renowned Adventure Rider, tails of a local Motor Officer transitioning from other brand mounts to BMW Authority motorcycles, or maybe a tour of the Plaza Christmas Lights!
Our Annual Awards Banquet is a night of celebration of our club, its members, and our shared experiences. It is sort of the cherry on top of the club's sundae!
