Mah boys and I will be rollin' out of La Crescenta as we did last year for our semi-short drive to the Rose Bowl. We'll be accompanied by the ever present and famous "E30 BBQ trailer" (Don't worry Jon, we know the Rose Bowl doesn't allow tailgating. We aren't planning to light it up. Just for show ), and possibly the E30 Rally car that was there last year, as well as a modified E34 540 with a supercharger that was not running in time for 'Fest 2010.

Anyone in the Sunland / Tujunga / La Crescenta area interested in rolling with us, let me know!

Also:

If anyone sets up or knows about an L.A., Valley, OC or SD caravan please PM me as I have a slew of friends on a non-car forum that live in those areas. I've been sharing Bimmerfest info with them and sending them the registration links. many of them have been asking about caravans and I told them I would relay any information I get from here to them.

Thanks a lot!

Love the video!

In all seriousness though.... What's going on with these caravans?

I'm in Santa Barbara and I'm waiting to see if anyone organizes one.

We need to get something going soon guys.. Please whoever leads ANY caravans, please be over 25. Don't need a bunch of kids under the influence of their friends (and other things) leading ANYTHING. I'm guessing the meetup spot for the valley will be Calabasas commons again? That was great. We had a police escort too!

Thumbs up

I'll be leading the PNW crew (BC, WA & OR). We're probably gonna meet some of you with the Norcal caravan. This yr looks like we may have a pretty descent size caravan, so it'll be fun!

With a heavy heart, I'm here to say that I WILL NOT be organizing the Bay Bimmerz/Nor Cal caravan this year. I can not attend Bimmerfest this year after doing so for 10 years straight.

If there is anyone that would like to take on this tremendous task (well, the way I organized/handled it, it was a task) please PM me and I can help

This will be the last 'Fest I bring my Z4 to. Lease expires on May 21st, so it's her going away present. This is her fourth, but hopefully not the last time she sees everyone.

I'm excited. Always am for this!

Maybe a secret tailgate party? Shhhh! Hahahahaha...

Maybe, not sure yet. Most of the guys are really busy with work and some just can't make it this year. I will post something when things start happening, which I have faith it will.
