**official 818/805 caravan to bimmerfest 2013**

Alright people,

Bimmerfest 2013 is a little over a month away and there wasn't any caravans in the making for our area. The two previous guys who did it, Zuckuss and MalibuMafia aren't doing it this time, so I'm going to step up and make this work Everything will basically be the same. Same meeting place, same scheduling.

Where: 4754 Commons Way Calabasas, CA 91302-3363

This is the same spot we met last year. Worked great, access to the freeway was easy, plenty of parking with no hassles. Vons is right in the complex so you can grabs food or whatever you guys need before we depart.

When: Saturday, May 18 2013. We will meet from 7:00-7:45 A.M. We will depart at 8:00 A.M. Bimmerfest gates open at 9:00 A.M. It take about a hour to get there from Calabasas. So please try to be on time, we want to arrive at the show in a timely manner.

Post up if you plan on attending! This is a really awesome part of the event! Please remember to obey the speed limits and don't do anything stupid. CHP will be monitoring the highways like always, they know of the annual event. We will also try to organize a merge with the Bay area caravan coming down the 101, to make the Caravan ever better.

Also, I spoke to MalibuMafia and he is going to try to work in some Law Enforcement friends to help keep the streets clear for us as we depart. With that being said just remember:

BE SMART AND RESPECTFUL
NO BURN OUTS
NO LOUD ENGINE REVING
NO LOUD MUSIC
NO ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES
THERE WILL BE POLICE AROUND AND ITS EARLY IN THE MORNING SO IT WOULD BE COURTESY TO BE GOOD TO THE SURROUNDING AREA AND SHOPPING CENTER


We will be taking the 101 to the 134 to the 210 to Rose Bowl Dr.

Any questions... post them up or email me: aznspartan6492@aol.com

This is my first time doing this so I can only hope it goes smoothly

Here is the Map. Meet spot in Calabassas Commons parking lot in RED. To avoid confusion. When we leave we follow the BLUE HIGHLIGHTED ROUTE

Do you guys park together or do you just show up to the gate and find a spot separately?

Typically thats the goal, but for the past few times, I didn't go in my own car, and my ride usually goes way ahead of the crowd and gets lost. Since this time, I'm actually going in my own car, I'm sticking to the route haha. So yea, should be good. M5_Forever :P

Last time I was able to stay near the middle of the group on the freeway. We were able to stop traffic on the freeway! Pretty amazing.

That was fun...especially that one audi driver. Last year we just turned too early but followed a bunch of other BMWs to the fest. I will post exact directions soon.

As for walkie talkies.. If you have them, bring them, I'll figure out a channel by then...Im also bringing a megaphone because.....why not?
