GREAT. Should be bigger and badder this year!

One suggestion for the organizers,,,, the food/drink situation last year was terrible, 1 stand. Please for the love, have at least two concession stands this year, esp considering this year's show will likely draw a larger crowd.

My vote,,, e36.

As for the food situation, rumor is the vendor that worked the event last year is no longer the food vendor for the stadium and that the stadium is aware of how unhappy people were last year and as such there will be a new vendor and multiple locations. :thumbup:

yeah, that, and the lack of trashcans around the area were my biggest issues. i wonder if one would be able to bring a little hibachi or something?? i've got a cow that will be vacationing in teh freezer by then, but i do not know if that would be frowned upon by the venue...:eeps:

Ooh, that sounds like fun going with the caravan. Too bad I'd be on the very last part of the leg so I'd probably miss out. (And I'd take the local roads to avoid the DE 1-95 toll...)

Yea I know how that is, last year there was only one spot they were meeting by me and it was the last stop, but i drove up to their second meeting spot and made a day of it lol. It was well worth it and I'll probably be doing that again but driving up to MA this time and leave with them from their shop.

I don't know if you're trying to avoid the time it takes to sit in traffic, or the cost of the toll, but neither one is worth going out of your way to avoid. It doesn't pay off (in terms of time or money) in my opinion. Especially when gas is over $4.00 a gallon.

It's because due to where I live, I can pick up 95 from off of Rt. 40? (Elkton Rd) in MD (think Newark, Delaware area). It's actually faster for me that way than it is to head north to hit 95 and then go south.

it's a walk around a parking lot and look at all the bimmers and vendors kind of event if it's exactly like last year, but the drive to bimmerfest is half the fun

@ Sir Smirnoff- Towson can work as well. I didn't see any posts in E46Fanatics when I was searching prior so thanks for the thread! I am close to Towson and M5 buddies are in White Marsh so it is a good meeting point. Name a time and we'll be there.

Sir Smirnoff
06-28-2012, 12:54 PM
@Caravagio'sM3 - That's cool. I'm not exactly sure what time everyone will want to get there. Since it is only a half hour drive or so, I'd be inclined to say to be there at 9:00 if you want to mingle a little bit and set the departure time as 9:30. What's your thoughts on this?

Caravagio'sM3
06-28-2012, 08:40 PM
Maybe I missed it in the thread but where at in Towson?
The town center by Nordstroms and Fridays side?
I should be there around 9. I'll let the other guys know as well as adding it to my thread in Bimmerfest.

Hey all, I'm setting up a Caravan from the DC Metro area. We have a facebook event right now for the caravan up to Aberdeen. Join up. I'll be posting details regarding the caravan within the next few days.

My club's caravan details if you are interested in joining up.

Caravan details:
For the caravan, we are looking for some road captains (basically pace cars to keep everyone together) as well as videographers/photographers who'd ride shotgun in our cars. The road captains will be limiting our cruising speed to 75-80 mph in order to keep the pack together all the way up to Aberdeen . Bear in mind we will be taking video and pictures while cruising up to our meeting points, so safety in a prime concern. We want to create a video that looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eDc9YJ7nG4

So long you stay behind the road captains, you can move from lane to lane as you please. To stay in touch, please make sure you have a two way radio charged and ready to go. If you don't have one, ask around to borrow a spare or get your own set (roughly $50). The following links are some two ways I have used and found they work well. You may need to pick up spare batteries just in case.

http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-Talkabout-MC220R-16-Mile-22-Channel/dp/B0036VNPZC/ref=sr_1_11?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1343648576&sr=1-11&keywords=two+way+radio

http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-MJ270R-22-Channel-27-Mile-Two-Way/dp/B001UE6MIY/ref=sr_1_15?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1343648576&sr=1-15&keywords=two+way+radio

The plan is to start from College Park's Ikea at 9 am sharp and cruise up to White Marsh Ikea. A camera car(s) will be sent up to the Maryland Rest area on I-95 between DC and Baltimore where it will wait for the caravan to show up. The road captains will lead us through the Baltimore Harbor Tunnels so we have all tunnels filled with BMWs. Although some off us don't have Easy Tags, this will be the point where some of us will get separated. Take your time and rendezvous in White Marsh Ikea. Once we arrive there, we will wait for everyone to assemble. Once gathered, we will depart again. Estimated time of arrival at Cal Ripken Stadium is about 10:30-10:45.

If you are not interested in a caravan like this, we understand. You are more than welcome to meet together and blast up i-95 on your own. The rest of us will travel together and arrive together. This will be our first major drive as Bimmer Alliance so let's keep it safe and fun.
