Okay everyone, here are the official meet points for the 2K6 Bimmerfest Socal (SD, OC, LA) caravan:


We begin in Chula Vista (San Diego's South Bay). We will meet at the Vons in Terra Nova Plaza off 805 & E. H Street. We will leave there at 4:30am sharp. Contact person is either OG Skooler or Slickav

The San Diego meet point will be at the Carlsbad Outlets. There is a Starbucks there, ample parking and a Chevron if people need gas. People should be there before 5:30am, we leave 5:30am for the OC. Contact person is OG Skooler or Slickav

The OC meet point will be at the Starbucks in the Huntington Beach Mall. Once again, there is a Starbucks and ample parking. People should meet there before 6:30am, as we will leave for the LA caravan meet point once the SD caravan arrives & gets some coffee. Contact person is either: Discombobulated or Second 2 None.

The LA meet point will be at Balboa Park in Encino. People should gather there before 7:30am, we will leave for Bimmerfest once the rest of the caravans arrive. Contact person is Brad D.

We should make Bimmerfest by the time the fairground's gates open at 9:00am.


*Important things to remember*

-Enjoy the drive, this is NOT a race!!
No need for it, we will have at least 200 BMW's (all models) going to Bimmerfest from Socal in the caravan. The freeways are only 4 lanes wide and there will be others on the road that Saturday morning...you can figure it out. We will get there in time, there's plenty of parking as it is the fairgrounds and not the dealer. Be cool, enjoy the drive with your fellow enthusiasts and let's all get to Bimmerfest safe & ticket less.

-Yes, CHP & local po-po know of this caravan, some are members of the different boards and do drive BMWs. So, do not ask if they know about this caravan.


*Checklist*

~Prep your cars the night before: check tire pressure, oil & coolant levels and get gas.
~If you have Walkie-Talkies, bring them. We will let you know what frequency we'll be using at the meet points.
~If you have radar detectors, bring them.
~This will a long drive for most of us, bring something to keep you awake and alert. (i.e.: soda, water, snacks, significant other, whatever!)
~Bring, at least, $10 for entrance fee into the fairgrounds.

Since I'm up in Camarillo, Encino is just about as far as Santa Barbara. If you leave @ 7:30-7:45, I'd expect you to come through town in the 8:15-8:30 timeframe. Any chance I can get a cell call when you all are coming through Newbury Park or so? (I live 5 minutes off the freeway in Camarillo)

Otherwise, I suppose I could find a convenient on-ramp to park on and join the caravan when I spot it.

Maybe the Ventura County folks can meet off the freeway somewhere and join the caravan in a group?

In the past, it was always easier to find the convenient off-ramp and enter the freeway when the caravan passed. I am sure there are Ventura County peeps meeting somewhere and joining the caravan.....I just don't know where.

See you there!

I just posted something similar over on Bimmerforums. I would think we would be 10-15 cars so joining your caravan while rolling would work fine. Once we get a spot, would you be willing to make a cell phone call when you are within a mile or two?

just get any one of the number of guys coming from LA to give you a call. i'm sure you got a buddy heading from that way.


then just all meet up on the freeway- its flawless!

Cant' wait! I actually got a hotel reservation at the Double Tree Resort in Santa Barbra Friday but will be driving down to LA or OC to join the caravan! This will be something worth driving in the opposite direction 1-2 hours to be a part of!
