Bimmerfest East News

So as we know, no announcement has been made yet. But given last year's event, MD state police and the local police in Aberdeen, MD were not too happy with some of the BS that was going on towards the end of the event, let alone the burn outs that were being done when it was made clear to not do any hooning at the event.

So right now, rumor mill has these following locations for BFE planned in July or August this year:

Carlisle, PA
Hershey Park, PA
Dulles, VA
Chantilly, VA

I can't confirm nor deny any of this, because this is all just hearsay at best. But the locations do make sense as they are pretty big, host other car events, and aren't too far from many people on the East Coast and our Canadian friends, eh!

So once we hear OFFICIAL word on what the location will be, maybe it will be Aberdeen, MD again, we'll post it here and start planning on who brings what and where we shall all meet (if the location has indeed changed).

I'll bring stuff. Just saying it now. :P

I stickied the thread, so we don't have to chase it down the page on a busy posting day.

If the date works out for me, assuming this actually gets planned, I'll be there.

I will be so happy if it's in Dulles or Chantilly, it's practically in my backyard. Like, if I wheel out of my cubicle I can see Dulles Airport.

The proximity to the airport would make it a great location, and there are tons and tons of hotels within a couple miles. I'm not sure where there's a venue large enough to host the show though.

Nice troll Ken! I popped onto the forum site, saw the BFE sticky and immediately thought "Yeah! They made the announcement!"

Gee, Don, I'm sorry. It wasn't meant to be a troll-post. Harry started this thread after we hijacked Joey's build thread, and I recalled I could sticky threads (if they're sticky-worthy).

Not that I'll be able to attend (yet to be seen), but I certainly HOPE BFE-15 happens.

Note to planners - June 26-July 5th is World Police and Fireman Games in Dulles, Chantilly, Manassas, Stafford area. They are expecting 12,000 people for the games.

PS: We need to have a NoVA swap meet or a meetup at the Sterling Chic-fil-a Friday evening drive in.

Come out on Thursday evenings to Fair Lakes/Fairfax around 8 PM or so. If the weather is good, we hang out at Fairfax Corner next to REI/movie theater, if it's rainy we go to the basement level of the parking garage at Fairfax Town Center (near Baja Fresh).

The Chik-fil-a meet is still worth checking out if you haven't gone. The people are very friendly and its a different flavor from the stuff that shows up at the Katie's and Fairfax C&C meets on Saturday and Sunday. It's pretty much all classics from what I've seen, mostly American but a good number of quirky old eurocars. I got sucked into a super nerdy conversation with a guy that had a VW Type III Notchback once when I was really supposed to be making a trip to Lowes.

If they don't make one we should make our own bimmerfest with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the fest and the blackjack

Think that Carlisle offers a huge venue and has food stands and has grass to park on vs Dulles which sounds like another giant park lot that's heat soaked.

DC in August is hot and humid. I don't miss that.

Think they'd let us close down Dulles and take it over for the day? Top Gear Test Track style?

Schnitzel?

Does Germany HAVE any traditional foods other than brats or schnitzel?

I think you mean wurst, and yes there are a lot of traditional german meals, they just tend to use spices that traditionally are not used here in America. Because of that they lack popularity.

Oh and incase you were wondering a schnitzel is a thin cut of meat that's been breaded and backed/fried. Think chicken fried steak done with a really tender/tenderized steak. And yes every time I think about a Wiener Schnitzel it make me giggle a little. (A wiener schnitzel is a a breaded fried steak made of veal.)

Also besides Bratwurst there are a lot of other wurst that imo are far better than brats.

Sorry... Cooking is kinda a hobby of mine, and I love german culture.

Lol, no worries Ms. Muse, you don't know me yet. I'm Ed. I'm a red seal chef by trade and was merely being facetious. Most of those who know me here know to read everything I type as though a sarcasm font existed . I live in the frigid wastes of the Canadian western tundra, yet have managed to make it to each BF.e thus far.



As far as Dulles goes, I'm far from greedy. We could let them use one runway for their airplane-thingies and regular activities.

EDIT:

Even though I've only actually driven my own bimmer to one of them...

Oh! Hahaha... Sorry!

It is very nice to meet you Ed, I am Tracy! That's awesome that you manage to make it out every year. The more everyone talks about bfe the more I want to go.

I really hope that nothing gets in the way of my attendance...

Hey guys, no word yet. May bring the 92 325I this year, or the MTechnic for its last hurrah. Haven't decided yet.

Alex/Southpark, I owe you for the T shirt. Haven't forgotten.

My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.
