Convoy from riverside/MoVall/Corona area

Anybody From Riverside, Moreno Valley, or Corona interested in forming a convoy to Bimmerfest '07?
It will be my first time in my new car and it would be nice to have a large group. PLUS! I will have an in-car cameraman so it will allow for some pretty awesome shots on the way there.
Post your ideas on where to meet and what time to meet. since i dont know how to get there other than mapquest, i say to meet at BMW of riverside and leave from there.

Thumbs up Riverside

Hey man, rather than meet at BMW riverside Dealership why not just meet at the Riverside plaza parkng lot. I figure if you meet there there would be more space to park?

acctually yeah, that is a good idea. but i dont know when the event officialy starts so im leaving hella early. i think if we had people meet around 5 that'll give an hour to gather and 3 to get there. but yeah, i'll tell my small group and try to get more to come.

For all who are interested in joining this convoy, We will be meeting at the Riverside Plaza @ 5:00am and will be leaving @ or before 6 depending on the turnout.
If avaliable, we will be parking along the street in front of the movie theatre where all the shops are and if that area is closed off we will meet in front of the new El Torito.
I recomend that everyone bring 2-ways and that you make sure you have directions printed out. Also, i ask that if you know anyone, friend, family, neighbor, etc... that drives a BMW or MINI, you should bring them along.

Are going to catch up the groups that will probably meet in Huntington Beach? If not, I'd like to join along. I'm from Lake Forest, but, will gladly drive to Riverside.

The reson being is that we may have members from cities on the way who we will be stopping for. If you have any questions again my e-mail is Shockwave_25tremor@yahoo.com.

Updated Info. (Check Back Periodically):
We will be meeting at the Riverside Plaza In front of the Threatre (if that area is unavaliable then in front of El Torito at 5:00am and depending on turnout and number of straglers our departure time will be anywhere between 5:45am and 6:15am. Again, I recommend that everyone carry a 2-way and have printed mapquest directions from the plaza to the fairgrounds.

I look forward to seeing everybody and will post updates periodically.

Update 3.4.07:
Attention all caravan participants, I have just recently been chosen to have my car displayed in Adam's Polishes booth. therefore we will need to be in SB before the fairgrounds open. The caravan is still on however we may need to leave as early as 5:30am so I ask that everyone who is planning on joining us to make sure that they are not late. Also, it has come to my attention that the SB highway patrol will be looking for vehicles not displaying thier front plates, having discovered this I now ask that if your vehicle did not come with a front mount that you please display the plate in your front window. I appreciate everybodies cooperation and can't wait to meet everybody.

Remeber that Bimmerfest is only 62 days away. make sure that your calendars are marked and have a nice day

Here is the route that we will be taking, If everything goes according to plan we should arrive at the showgrounds around 845. however, I have recieved word that a significatly large group of bimmers are merging together at the 101 and if we time it right we could catch up to it. From what I've heard there will be in upwards of 100+ cars in one huge caravan. Also, If everyone could please goto this link and vote on the poll it would help get me an idea of how many cars will be with us: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...d.php?t=709656

Maneuvers
1:Start out going SOUTH on RIVERSIDE AVE toward SUNNYSIDE DR.
2:Turn RIGHT onto CENTRAL AVE.

5:Merge onto CA-60 W via the ramp on the LEFT toward LOS ANGELES.
6:Merge onto CA-71 N via EXIT 29B toward POMONA.

umm if you have a 2-way you can do that. I think were gunna use channel 4 so when we get close to the 60 we can shout at you. mine are 8 mile range so should be able to get you a decent warning when we get close.
