: Norcal 12/18/04 Meet / drive (Bay area)

11-22-2004, 10:19 PM
Ok this will be our holiday meet. I am still working out details but I am setting up the date. We will go back down to the bay again. This is so all those bay guys who are afraid to drive their car can come out again. JK

Keep and eye out for details. Probably will end up at Stanford as usual but I am looking around at other options.

I have posted at the following:

Help spread the word. ALL CARS are welcome, no matter make, model or year. I want to see that geo metro out there LOL.

Tested the run out today.

It will take 3-4 hours depending on traffic and stops. We did the run in 3 hours and had very little traffic. We tested the run in a Toyota Camry which was a lot slower then we will be going ;) However this drive we will have at least 1 or 2 camera stops and a few points were we will be doing some filming of the group doing a drive by.

If you go on the run YOU MUST HAVE A RADIO. I can not stress the importance of this for this run in particular. We will be going on some very nice roads but there is always the possibility of an incident that would require the group to stop immediately.

This will be one of the best runs to date based off the test run. Please remember to be safe and give room to your fellow drivers on the road.

Also please remember to spread the word about the meet. This is a charity drive as well so letís get as many people coming out and donating to toys for tots. Hit up the Audi, Honda and other car boards as well as churches and what not. Why most people will not go on the drive they still can come out and donate to the charity.

Ok I am done now :P

Reminder and update

Event 12/18/04
Start 10:00am Ė 12:00pm Stanford Mall

Sacramento Caravan
Meet Raley Field LOT A
Leave 8:00AM ON THE DOT
Be there before 8:00AM

Please bring some toys for Toys for Tots.

Stanford Mall has approved us being there however as is it is holiday shopping season they can not rope of the area as usual. So I am asking for a few volunteers to be at the mall at 9:00am to POLITLY ask people not to park in the section we want park. If not we will have to deal with the parking as it arises.

FYI, KSM and 100.5 in Sacramento are putting the word out on the radio and on there websites.

First off - Both people that had accidents are ok. They were both VERY lucky that they were not hurt or killed. Both their cars are totaled but they are alive and safe. I talked to the later Sat evening that crashed the S2000 and he is ok and back at home.

I stayed with some friends in the bay after going out on the town. I was feeling rather ill and guilty out about the 2 accidents that happened. So they spent the evening cheering me up and asking me to not stop doing the meets.

After much thought and talking with my friends, I will continue to be the NORCAL Drive events coordinator. Look for future posts in 05 and emails for new events.

If you wish to be added to my events email list

I justed moved here from the Bay Area. Currently in Stockton. I drive a 1997 328is. New to the BMW's world, but very interested in the car. Planning and hope to upgrade to a newer car, can't say when yet :( Since I moved here, I haven't meet anyone in stockton who are into Meets and Run. I wouldn't mind driving to Sacramento for any Meets or even just to hang out with other members, and hopfully meet new friends in this area that have as much interest into BMW. I like how you organized the Runs and Meets, especially the Toy for Tot. If I'd found out about this site and meet before, I would be the there for sure. Are you plannning to set up anyother Meet or Event or Run after the new year? If so please inform me via email. I would like to see how Sac. people do it. j/k But for sure i want to be out there and see how everyone fix up their car and meet new people. Plus you know how boring Stockton here. Been only a few month for me here. My email is listed below:
