Default New Article About Bonneville Club

Right click, save as:

The Bonneville Coxswains

This is an approximately 3,500 word piece I wrote as a nonfiction account of a subculture in society. I tried to identify the factors of BC that appeal to most members, and I feel I was able to explain the spirit of community that is present around this website.

I hope you enjoy the article. Feel free to comment or criticize in this thread, or send me a PM if it suits you. Happy reading!


EDIT: Moderators or Admins, please sticky this topic as per Bill Wren'* request.

Very nice write-up. I think it depicts accurately, much of what BC is about....there is just something special about an enthusiastic Bonneville owner (especially, the one'* that love them enough to join a club and chat about them).
