Bimmerfest '09

So, are we a month out from Bimmerfest 2008, or 11 months away from Bimmerfest 2009?

Seriously, thanks for all your hard work Jon! It was a great event and I'm already looking forward to next year

Do you think that Bimmerfest will ever outgrow the Earl Warren location?? I bought either the 2006 or 2007 video and I seem to remember someone (maybe you, Jon??) that the show might someday have to move to a bigger location??

Cheers,

No question about it: Bimmerfest X will be held at a new location...

It should be like conventions. cities can bid on hosting bimmerfest. But, it would lose its charm by moving it away from SB, CA.

But at the same time would become much, much more affordable.

Nothing wrong with Santa Barbara (go there every March), but it's rather expensive and that's with free air travel. Bringing my M3 out there every year ***8800; affordable.

Jon, I'm planning to organize a Z3 coupe gathering at the next Bimmerfest (hoping for 60+ cars). Please e-mail me so I can get some preliminary insight into location, dates (Cinco de Mayo week-end again?), and places to stay. TIA

In case Jon didn't see this email us at info@Bimmerfest.com. I'm hoping to have the info public in a few weeks.
