BMW 4 Corners Meet - Aug. 9, 2013

The 3rd annual BMW 4 Corners Meet is in the initial planning stages! After the success of last year, we hope to have much more participation. Right now, we are looking at getting attendees from out of state who are willing to take a road trip and join us at the event!




What is the event?
Well, that is a good question. A group of like minded auto enthusiasts who enjoy owning, driving, and meeting other people for a weekend of fun. People come to discuss their favorite BMW's and join in on a drive, photo shoot and other automotive festivities!
:chase:

Where is event?
In a small town in south western Colorado, near the 4 Corners region (where Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona meet) called Pagosa Springs. This small mountain town sits right next to the Continental Divide, and one of the tallest mountain passes in Colorado. Located right in the middle of Durango, and Alamosa, the location serves perfectly as a central location for the 4 Corners region. Pagosa Springs is a great location to cater towards people that are interested in meeting some other BMW owners, but also want to have some fun hiking and exploring, or even soaking at the natural Hot Springs. There is something for everybody! :hitit:

What will we be doing??
Being that our host owns the hosting hotel and has connections with the town, we are lucky to have a few unique opportunities. One being a group dinner at the local Pagosa Brewery. Meet other people attending the weekend, and relax with drinks after the drive into town. We are planning to have the Brewery to ourselves for the night!!
The next morning, we are doing a mountain drive and photoshoot. Sitting right atop the Continental Divide, we have the perfect opportunity for pictures and photoshoots! On the pass itself, we will have a full ski area parking lot to use! Additionally, we are looking into planning a Time Speed Distance Rally. Attempt to drive a predetermined route in an allotted amount of time while maintaining a target average speed. The driver(s) closest to the target time, win! Prizes will be given out at the car show and BBQ in the evening.
Share your car and vote on your top 3 cars. Raffle could be included, along with giveaways, based on sponsorship.
Late Night, don't miss out on BMW Films: The Hire showing. Located in the bar, the 72***8243; Flatscreen works as a great display!
On Sunday, head on over to the Pagosa Hot Springs to rejuvenate in the Hot Springs before the trip back home. The local Hot Springs has many tubs with varying temperatures, and will offer a discounted rate for groups of 15 or more.


When is it?
We are currently in the planning stages for the event. The BMW 4 Corners Meet is the BMW event for the Rocky Mountain region and will occur August 9, 2013


Sponsorship:
Right now we are getting together sponsors and logo designs, along with brainstorming what activities to include, along with a t shirt design.
All sponsors will be posted on our website, along with a logo that will be placed on all of the event t shirts.
Please let me know if anybody is willing to help in any way-- I'm open to new ideas for the upcoming event! I know it is 6 months away, but that gives us time to plan activities accordingly!!


Additional Info:
Last years event was a success, and the only thing we wanted to improve was representation from more states, along with more attendance!
I am sure that everybody who went last year is willing to go again this year, along with spreading the new about this great BMW event. The best part-- no registration necessary to attend! Come and join other enthusiasts for a great weekend in a great mountain town.
Our very own Neel M3, will be accommodating us at a discounted rate , not to mention the hotel will be freshly renovated :hitler:

Last Year:
Here is a hint of the event last year:

Well, I remember that you used to organize them. I wouldn't be opposed to driving up to Denver on occasion to do one up there. I haven't seen any gatherings on the forums for here in a while, I maybe just missing them though.

Hmm, I never organized the burget meets, but have helped with some other things.

You just missed a meet in Castle Rock:

Are you going to make it to Drive4 Corners BMW Meet this August? Rooms reservations should be made soon. I haven't talked to the hotel recently but heard the King sized rooms are all gone.

More than likely not. If it was one full day it would be a little more doable for me. I get off of work at 0600 hours from work that morning so it would be one hell of a long day for me. It sounds like a hell of a lot of fun though. I never been down in that area of Colorado before. The farthest I have been was Monarch Ski Resort for one day when I was 18 and a motorcycle ride to Salida for a couple of hours a few years ago. I have heard that Montrose and Durango are beautiful and I would like to get down there some time. How long of a drive is Pagosa Spring?

The main events are on Saturday with the group drive and BBQ/ tech sessions etc. That's when most everybody will be there.
It's about 250 miles from Colorado Springs, so less than 5 hours depending on your route and your speed. The nice part is that you drive up and back down Wolf Creek Pass which is quite fun!

2013 Tshirt Pre-Orders Are Here!


Drive 4 Corners is proud to announce the 2013 event tshirt design is complete and ready for pre-orders! We have been able to achieve a great discounted price for all those planning to preorder; only $12 for a shirt (in standard sizes)! Price will be $18 at the event in August.


The 2013 event wouldn't be possible without our proud sponsors. Bigcoupe.com has provided exclusive web-hosting and allowed the event to have a central place for event information. Therefore, the feature car of the year is the original BMW 6 Series from 1988! Our artist has captured the detail and essence of the event with the design, highlighting the enjoyment of driving matched with the enthusiasm for BMW's. The logo also includes a variety of other BMW's–including the E87 1 series M, the E36 3 series, The E34 M5, and a classic E9 Coupe!


Visit the Pre-order page http://drive4corners.com/?p=1613 to reserve a shirt in your size! The best part– pick up is free if you are attending the Drive 4 Corners BMW Meet in August! If you are unable to make it, add shipping for an additional $7.99! **At this time, all orders will be shipped the week after the event (Aug 12th). We are exploring the possibility of shipping shirts prior to the event, but this may not be feasible. Drop a note to info@drive4corners.com if you are interested in finding out some additional information about shipping prior.**
Get your orders in prior to the event so that you can ensure that you will receive a shirt at the event. There is no guarantee that there will be enough shirts for all those interested at the event! Additionally, the pre-orders allow us to gauge how many additional shirts to have printed. Pre-order discounts end at noon (MST) on July 25th.

For those attending the event, they can preorder now and get the correct size of shirt and know that they have a shirt reserved come the weekend of the event (I'm confident we will run out!). The pre-order allows us to keep the event free for all participants and gauge number of shirts to print. For those who may not be attending the event, you can still buy a shirt! Shipping is additional cost (Make sure you select shipping as an item in your cart!), but the overall price is still very reasonable.
Also note, that these preorder prices are valid through July 25th at noon MST. After that, the price will increase to $18 plus shipping.



Comments always welcome, I am sure interested in hearing what you guys have to say about the design!

If you have any questions regarding the event, let me know!

Is the fire going to be a problem for the meet? I hear that area is getting hit pretty hard.

Actually, I made it down there this weekend to plan some things for August. Hwy 160 through Wolf Creek Pass was closed, so heading into town from Denver I took the detour through NM. However, this detour was not bad only adding about 30 mins to the overall trip.

The fire is on the other side of the pass, although there is one near the Wolf Creek ski area, however that area is safe.

I think that everything will be calmed down when August rolls around. But driving down there in August, you would go through South Fork so it is possible that you see some of the burn area (like Black Forest ).


Pagosa Springs actually doesn't even have any smoke in town(there is more smoke in Pueblo and CO springs than there is in Pagosa).

The 2014 tshirt design has been coming along nicely and our designer has been willing to share a bit of a teaser for you all.

Can you guess what the final BMW design will be?


The most recent event update is available here, and the list of updates for the 2014 event is available here and will continuously update as news is posted.

53 registered cars, and E30's are still leading the way! ;D
