SoCal BimmerMeet 2

Ok guys i know there's some meets threads going around and so i thought i'd share the idea i've had about a meet for a while. Let me know what you guys think!

Location: Carbon Canyon Park

Date: August 12th @ 9:30am

Food: Members BBQ - Bring food to cook (we can assign who brings what) There are shelters with BBQs and tables.

*Note*
If enough members can show ill have a shelter reserved and take care of all the park amenities (parking, tables, etc)

FOR THOSE WHO DONT KNOW ABOUT THIS PARK
This is a regional park that has play grounds, tennis courts, ponds, lakes, lots of trees, etc. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed. This park is located off Carbon Canyon Rd. which is a nice twisty road we can enjoy driving.

More info: http://www.ocparks.com/carboncanyon/...=LocationHours

Here is a map of location:

I give up on the 4th of july meet. I think this will work for everyone. What about a dyno day at 'the dyno shop' ? 12+ participants required for about $45 per person (instead of $100+) 2 pulls.

Did someone say BBQ?

This sounds like fun! Put me down...hopefully nothing major pops up that will make me miss it.

I'd do a DynoFest, even if to verify my lack of hp/tq.

Ketchup,
It would be great to finally put faces to names. I remember talking with you about sludge when i first signed onto this forum

Ok guys im going to keep a log of who is bringing what so if you post something you will be responsible. If you don't know what to bring, a week before the meet i'll figure out what we will still need. I think if we all pitch in a little, we'll end up with a lot!

Maybe we should consolidate threads or close the other thread...so as to not confuse anyone....make this the "official" next So Cal GTG. Agreed?

Maybe a mod can lock or delete the other thread.....

Sounds good AI

Im wondering how many people are likely to show? I'll be posting on the m5board as well but right now my focus will be talking with the recreation center to see if they can do something special for us as far as space and parking. I'll keep you guys updated with the latest.

Oh i forgot to mention i believe there is a small fee to get into the park but i think its no more than you everyday fast food lunch. Ill check to make sure!

$5 per car, and if Carbon Canyon Park is anything like Yorba Regional, you have to pay to re-enter, so lets make sure we have everything we need the first time in so we don't get pwned by the HBP
