I have a bone to pick! ;)

So everywhere you see April 8th April 8th April 8th... hasn't anyone thought of putting the TIME! It took me 30 minutes to dispell the rumor that bimmerfest started at 10AM! Next year, it needs to be posted on the registration page that the gates open at 10AM!!!

Ok, that's my kvetch, all better now.

I'm just mad because I will be there at 6 or 6:30 in the morning setting up... sleep deprived and adrenaline overdosed.....

See you guys there!

Actually, it looks like this is a good point... I just poked around the home page and couldn't find the hours/start time listed anywhere. I don't even remember where I saw the 9:00am time originally. Maybe someone could edit the Bimmerfest homepage or "official" homepage? I think a lot of people will be look it up this coming week!

It's at 9am and it isn't a surprise. Weren't you a vendor there last year (I know you were). Look around, it's posted several places.
Sign here, press hard, three copies! Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Yeah, they're acting like rookies.

Well sure, we all know the time. But he makes a valid point. Don't you kind of think the time should be given in the same place as the date?
