Socal Get together?

Anyone interested in a Socal Get together?

I live just north of the San Fernando Valley off the 101 and only a few miles from Malibu. There are some great roads to the ocean from here.

I though a get together for swapping ideas etc. with a PCH run might be fun sometime in Mid March. We could meet near here, head over the hill, maybe grab lunch on PCH, etc.

Either a Saturday of Sunday late AM start time.

Anyone interested?

Sounds cool. Only problem is that I might be in TX during spring break. I'll see about it.

I live in Torrance right now. Not too far from the area I believe. Hey Roseng, I think Malibu is great but it might get jam from time to time. How about the Mulholland drive? Either place would be great for feeling our 6. Oh yeah, of course I'm down for the gathering.

Mullholland is not a great drive and too short. I'm thinking further north on PCH past Pepperdine. I have some great canyon roads back to the 101 too. I hope you can make it.

Sure. I've been there sometimes when I first got the 6. I used to drive back to LA from Sunset Blvd. So when is the meet?

Not a bad area. Can you estimate a date for the meet?

Lol and I was about to think that two hours would be a far drive.

Do you live in somewhere North Cal? 6 hours drive for a car meet up. Respect. Just come whenever you have something to do around LA. It's not necessary to drive that far. We will always be here at Bimmerfest.

Yes, don't forget that Bimmerfest West is on Saturday, May 18th in Pasadena. Props to you for wanting to come out so far

Basically, Bimmerfest is an annual meet where all types of BMWs meet in a reserved area and sponsors come out to showcase their products/services. I believe that it is held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Hi Everyone,
Looks like we have some takers. I'm traveling right now but give me a few days and I'll out together a plan. Thanks for the positive responses!

Come on over anyway. I just got back from Amsterdam last Wed. It's not that long a flight, and you can check the car in baggage, as long as you don't fly Easy Jet.

SoCal Get Together

Hi All,

Looks like there was a fair amount of interest in getting together so, it's finally time to get this rolling. I have created an online Calendar on Google docs. Please fill out your info and date preferences ASAP (click to link). I'll do my best to find a compromise for dates. List your date preference from 1 highest to 4 lowest.

The plan is to meet in my area Agoura Hills/Calabasas as it's central to many people, as some will be coming from far north if all goes well. Actual place to meet is TBD.

We'll do a meet and greet to swap stories, mods, coding, and such. No set agenda.

Meeting time would be starting at 11:00 AM and grab some lunch about 12:30 before heading to PCH and Malibu. There are some great twisties through the mountains or we can take a more leisurely route.

Basically no real agenda other to than meet as many members face to face as possible. No rules. Come alone, bring the wife, bring the girlfriend, bring both of them, the kids, your dogs, bring them all!

I hope to meet you then,
Regards,
Gary
