A good friend of mine is involved with an event that is slated for Sunday, August 11th... It's too soon to tell if it will fall on my weekend off, but if so, I won't miss it!

A photographer and 3 models were at a local VAG meet about 6 weeks ago, taking photos and promoting the event. Nobody there seemed to know what they were about, but they made a pretty big impression.

Actually, Vince, if you read their itinerary, you will see that their event is very different from BimmerFest.

The one thing is common will be the presence of some very special BMWs...

Funny that you should ask that...

That suggestion (and even an offer) was made to that effect. Unfortunately, it came up too late to include in the plans.



But hey, there's always next year!

I did notice that the best looking women at Bimmerfest was from Washington going to school at USC. 'Course I am a bit biased...

Jon, have you figured out if you're working or not?

I checked my schedule and I'm NOT working on 8/11. The LA BMW CCA was thinking of setting up a booth at the event. I guess I could volunteer if one of the other models could work the booth with me:

I just projected out my schedule on the calendar.

I'll be working all weekend long (up here at Cutter)...

Thanks for the info. I actually did see this. I'm not sure if I want to drive the 7 hours to go though. I just can't do these drives like I used to a couple of years back when I was still in college. . . ah, I guess I'm getting old.

At least if I decide to go my entire family lives all over NYC so finding a place to stay is easy enough.

Anyone from the board here signed up for the European Tuner Challenge?

This event figures to be a lot of fun too, and August 11th is now right around the corner...

I hope to be there . . .

I'm going to try to help man the BMW CCA booth at the event. You think DC could break loose one of the models to help us out?

Sasha doesn't look r1cer to me (see above pic) At least not the mods!

Oh, but my interest in attending is purely in trying to increase BMW CCA membership!
