You heard it right! In one of our many meetings with law enforcement, I discussed the possibility of rejuvenating my favorite part of The 'Fest with CHP lieutenants. The good news is that I was given an indication that if it was properly planned, and if we would be willing to pay $ for CHP escorts, the Rally may once again be feasible...

:supdude:

Would anyone care to join us?

would they suspend speed enforcements with the escort?

I'd be willing to join you -- once I get out of law school hell.

I keep missing the 'Fest by about a week. My last final is tomorrow. Missed 'Fest by five days this time around.

EEEFFFFIN' YEAH! BRING THE RALLY BACK! It has been my favorite part of the fest (with the exception of the last 2)!

These are from 2005's Rally. About 99% of the cars in the pics are all BMWs:

I actually think you should charge as a way to discourage lucky579 from joining us.

I think he was referring to paying the CHP -- and then having that additional cost added to the overall cost of Bimmerfest (admission).

Or maybe not. LOL.

I'm not in touch with a lot of these new Bimmerfesters.
