If anyone from the SF/Bay Area and beyond wants to join in on the Bay Bimmerz Caravan and I don't already have your info, or you possibly changed your emaill address, please PM me the info needed below.

If you think I have your info and your name first starts with an A, you might want to send it to me again, I mistakenly deleted some "A" people. :mad:

Bimmerfest will be held Saturday May 2, so we will leave EARLY Friday morning, May 1 and return Sunday May 3.
Evite will be sent out in the coming weeks, so if you'd like the Evite please PM me the info listed below ASAP.

There will also be other caravan info on our Bay Bimmerz site http://www.baybimmerz.net/forums/index.php, for the North
Bay, Sacramento, Oregon, Washington & Canada caravan's as they become
available, that will meet up with us ultimately in Gilroy, CA.

Info needed:

1. Your email address
2. Your REAL FULL name (not forum name)
3. Model of BMW or Mini
4. Year
5. Color
6. City you're from

If you look at past Bimmerfest information, you will see related threads on
prior Bay Bimmerz Caravan's to Santa Barbara.

I/we look foward to Bimmerfest '08.

Keith,

You should have all of my information, as the vehicle that I'm bringing is the only thing that has changed. Do you still want it? I will also head up the Sacramento caravan again, so you can direct those folks to me here (http://www.baybimmerz.net/forums/showthread.php?p=19736#post19736). I'm bringing my M5, so let the shopping begin! :banana::clap::bling:

Curt, I would strongly recommend not posting your email address in a forum that can be harvested by search spiders. I would suggest you start a Sac caravan thread in the B'fest 2009 forum I just created over on BayBimmerz, and direct people to that thread. Our events forums are only accessible to members who have logged in to the site, so you can post contact information there without running the risk of getting spammed to death.

It's my fault. I want to put together a registration app that is more interactive than Evite and I asked Keith to hold off a bit while I work on that. I figured we'd use Evite to steer people to a registration app hosted on the BayBimmerz site. We'll do something similar for the E-Bar dinner.

Curt & anyone else for that matter, if you replied to the Evite with a YES or UNDECIDED, you will get an email from Evite today and in the "message area" there will be a link for the E-Bar info, it will not be in the Evite itself, so make sure you read your email and don't even worry about opening the Evite.

I hope that makes sense, if not PM me with any questions. :thumbup:

just registered for bimmerfest, been a couple years for me.
Still trying to work out the family logistics to make it to the caravan. Hoping my wife can come so we can get a weekend away.
Even though my 12 year old assures me he can drive everyone to school, we're working on getting an adult to handle that. If that happens, we'll be in the caravan in the e34, of not we'll probably drive down later in the day on our own, still hopefully in time for the ebar.

I got a handfull of people together to drive down in the afternoon on May 1st. I really want to drive in a large caravan though at some point!:drive: How can I find out about the returning caravan to the Bay Area? Will you post details Friday or Saturday just in case I don't find anyone there who knows?

Ashleigh, are you staying at the Ramada (I'm having a margarita party in room #246 after the e-bar dinner)? Feel free to swing by or txt/call if you want to find us... I'll PM you my #.

No, but I'm staying close to it. That sounds fun. I won't be arriving until about 8 or 8:30, so after we check in i'll send you a message and see what's up. Thanks!:thumbup::roundel:
