Caravan from the North

A big part of Bimmerfest is it's caravans. There's really nothing like rolling down the highway with 20-30 BMWs in a line.

As much as I would like to help organize the caravans I will have to be at the venue a day or two early to help set up and organize the final details.


If anyone else would like to organize the caravan please feel free.

I cannot stress anymore that safe driving is key. Please do not ruin a spectacular event with unsafe antics on the highway. We would like everyone to arrive safely and ticket free to enjoy the days proceedings.

Glen, You guys can use this thread to organize and keep track of where and when to meet up etc...

So really there's not much organizing that needs to be done.

ok here is what i have come up with.....


we all meet at the gateway information area. thats the one just south of Edmonton with the big oil rig.

say around 2 or so, on the road by 230

cruz to red deer and pick up the crew from there.
meet at the Gasoline alley tim hortons at 4pm on the road at 430 roughly.

arrive Calgary by 6 pm.

go to the respective hotels and then go from there.

any one coming from north of edmonton it takes about an hour to get through the city if you go through downtown especially on a friday afternoon.

there are other routes that are quicker. if you need to know just give me a shout


any one have any problems/ differnt routes/plans or what have you let me know.

sstuner,
Meeting at the gateway info center sounds like a good idea (I live about 10 minutes away )
I'm going to try to get that entire day off so I think leaving friday would be best.
Your route sounds good.

Last year my G/F and I stayed at the Hyatt downtown for 55$ a night (with an entertainment card discount). It was a really nice hotel with underground parking for an additional $10 or something. Rates may have changed but Iím just letting everyone know about my good hotel experience in Cow Town .


So, who is going to be in the edmonton caravan and what kind of car are you bringing? post up, we should get a head count going.
I'm be going in my 325.


Spencer
