: Do we have a walkie talkie channel # ready to roll?

##CHANNEL 9 people!!##I just bought a set over the weekend. May be helpful to alert others of helpful information (coordinate caravans to roll together) or alert of the black and whites :eek: but of course we won't have to worry about that since no one will be trying to leave the rest of the group ! :thumbup:

Caravan coordinators chime in??

Alright, we so all know how exciting bimmerfest is going to be, and us as caravan organizers are working very hard to make this work out and become one of the best bimmerfests caravans in history!

This year, we're going to have an open "dispatch" channel for walkie talkies. If you have one of those 'Uniden' or 'Motorola' 10-21+ channel walkie talkies you'll be able to tune in.

CHANNEL 9 will be the official So-Cal Caravan Walkie Talkie Channel to communicate within ourselves.

Ofcourse, we want to keep it organized on there, so please, dont conversate about your last night's dinner, or how green your grass is.. have common sence.

Dont be annoying, use it to communicate, emergency purposes, warnings, and even just to say 'hey your car looks great ;)' to the pal next to you!

ha. well anyways, were just a few days away and I certainly cant wait!!

Play it safe, no bullsh!t on the highways, and please get a lot of sleep the night before!

Bimmerfest 09! Here we come!

Any questions please feel free to contact me (LA Organizer) or 07BMW335i. (SD Organizer)
