Attn. M/Z3 Coupe owners - Dorkfest 2011

www.dorkfest.org

I apologize, I have not posted frequently on this forum lately, but I wanted to announce the revival of Dorkfest - the largest Z3 and M Coupe event in North America. Briefly, the date is Saturday, August 27, 2011; the location is the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, Northern California; and the purpose is to bring M/Z3 Coupes and their owners together.

I'll be the first to admit that I never went to any of the previous Dorkfest events, but I've heard the stories and seen the pics. There's a whole new generation of coupe owners who never got the chance to experience a sea of coupes, and there's a bunch of long-term coupe owners rearing to do it again. Is it still possible bring upwards of 50 Coupes together in one place? Spread the word and help us to find out August 27...

Dorkfest Registration Page

Please register for Dorkfest 2011. We are reserving a free commemorative Dorkfest T-shirt (designed by Summereskimo) for each M/Z3 Coupe driver attending, be sure to give us your shirt size when you register. Additional Dorkfest T-shirts will be available at the event for $20, so reserve your extras too.

Those not attending can also purchase T-shirts, but we will announce those details later.



The event is two months away, so please help us get the word out. Here's the flyer if you'd like to print it out just in case you come across fellow coupe drivers on the road.



See our Dorkfest website and Facebook page.

We z4 coupe owners are cast out... alone... No event for us... The roadster crowd welcomes us, yet we do not fit in, and now we are shut out from our older brothers!


Not that I could go anyways...

With less than two weeks to go, we have over 55 M/Z3 coupes registered. There's talk of the event breaking the US, or maybe event the British record With that said, it's imperative that everyone arrive during the registration period of 9:30 to 10, as we will start snapping group photos at 10. Please be timely, as this will be the only time that you will be able to receive your registration packet, which includes the free t-shirt.

And the shirt is done



Props to Ian (summereskimo) for designing the logo and handling all the details :alright

We ordered 150 shirts, so we'll have plenty for sale after the event. Please help support Dorkfest by buying our shirts. There's no profit involved as the shirts we sell only offset the free shirts for all the attendees driving their coupes and printing costs. Thanks

EDIT: Time to blow out the last of the Dorkfest T-shirts - $15 shipped in CONUS and Canada, or two for $25 shipped, or 3 for $33 shipped (if you want two or more pm or email me for an invoice). We only have sizes M, L, and XL available. Makes a great stocking stuffer
