Attendance #s at BimmerFest this year?

Jon (or anyone), how many cars were there in this year's event?

I loved the venue - absolutely amazing.

Also, can you confirm that there were no burnouts? (I didn't see any)

It wasn't that many...

How many should I figure were parked outside the Polo Club?

I heard that there were quite a few parked on Nidever...

Yeah, what was up with that? I drove down Nidever because the online directions indicated that was were the entrance was. I was amazed to see so many nice looking BMWs parked outside the event. I can understand that a few people are going to bauk at the entry fee, but, wow, there were a lot of cars out side. There was plenty of room inside the gates. I was shocked to see that many folks cheap out, especially considering the condition of several of the cars. Beaters I could understand, but there were some nice rides out there.

Heh heh....can drive a BMW but can't afford $20....what's up with that?

What an awesome venue....I took a break from the cornucopia of cars and went to watch the polo match. Wish I had a bit more disposable income, but thanks to greedy Wall Street crooks and rapacious real estate agents, my net worth fell below eight figures this year, and now I can't afford that pony I've always lusted after

Yeah that's dumb. I'm not one to waste money but $20 is certainly worth it

20 bucks is reasonable, 10 bucks would propably justify the people parking outside.. or a soltuion for one time re entry cuz some people did wanna leave for a bit.. but whatever i had fun inside, hovering on the grass :P
