But the lines were part of the fun as well, not sure the Pasadenallites were all that happy as they went for their morning walks.

Thanks to the organizers and the staff. It was a fun event again! The Rose Bowl rocked!

The entry is one of the things we're hoping to fix next year. The Rose Bowl and our parking service (which is required to get a permit for an event of this size) have already express ideas to us about how we can shorten everyone's entrance times.

"Just Bryce" kept guessing 1879, 2730, and last guess 2961. My one and only guess was 2800. So, if his system wins, I should have just guessed every number between 1800 and 3000 and would easily win. We will let the powers that be, sort this one out. Extra large would be just fine, and no, I would not look good in a tank top.

A toss up I figure....slightly less cars, but way more attendees this year. Probably had something to do with ALMS Laguna Seca being the same weekend

This was a record year for both attendees and cars. We figure around 2,000 - 2,100 cars and 5,000 attendees last year.

I stand corrected...and I'm very pleased to be corrected in this case.
I know it's early, but I'm already looking forward to next years fest...

I like Bimmerfest annual rate, and I'm sure it takes Jon and everyone that long to plan and anything shorter would be a pain.

However, perhaps a second event would be more regional GTG's through Bimmerfest.
