Bimmerfest new date?

I was wondering if I had missed anything. Is there an update as to when Bimmerfest will be happening this year?

Ditto. It's gonna be 5400 miles round trip for me, and I need to know if I'll be done with exams by then and whether or not I can get a couple days off of work.

Same here.. driving from Miami, but I'm a full time student and need to make sure exam week is over (hopefully the fest will be mid-may this year).

This exactly.

I don't know how much my input will weigh, but if the organizers read this, I think you'd get a much higher turn out if it were done mid to late May this year because there are a lot of college students who need to finish finals before they can head out. Just a thought.

i have a 7000 mile trip to plan, hopefully it's not much later or I won't be able to go.

I have to take off three weeks for this and my boss kinda wants to know when I'll be gone. my plan is to go live with a new software inspection system in april and then leave for three weeks so when it breaks noone will know what to do.

+1 on wanting a new date announced soon, but I know Jon is working as hard as he can on it and we'll get a date as soon as they can confirm it.

Sweet Jon thanks for doing your best to get a date.

the sooner the better though as i would be coming from new york

Anyone that is coming from north eastern coast area should venture into the E36 Bimmerfest thread.

We are trying to get a huge pack of bmw's rolling into bimmerfest from the east coast

thanks for organizing guys! just wondering what's the reason for the date change? any any estimate even when it is? (i know you said exact date is unknown, but i'm just wondering if there's a ballpark, it sucks being a student with finals and midterm )

Yeah I sent them a PM about hopefully considering students. Hopefully this thread adds to our case as well

I can't wait, either! So excited (as every year) I will go to Bimmerfest every year 'til I die.

Please though, Jon...

The anticipation is killing me!

Seriously though, I know three PDX area guys who have already decided to bag it for this year due to the inability to plan for the trip. some news or some sort of updates would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
