The plan is to meet in my area Agoura Hills/Calabasas as it's central to many people, as some will be coming from far north if all goes well. Actual place to meet is TBD.

We'll do a meet and greet to swap stories, mods, coding, and such. No set agenda.

Meeting time would be starting at 11:00 AM and grab some lunch about 12:30 before heading to PCH and Malibu. There are some great twisties through the mountains or we can take a more leisurely route.

Basically no real agenda other to than meet as many members face to face as possible. No rules. Come alone, bring the wife, bring the girlfriend, bring both of them, the kids, your dogs, bring them all!

I hope to meet you then,
Regards,
Gary

Sucks to hear that Nitrogen. I'm hoping that I can make it on March 24 as I will be in TX for a week. If you can't make it to Bimmerfest, we can always have another meet in the summer.

Ok, I just added my name to the list. Hoping the wife will be up for putting the top down and cruising with you guys. It'll also hopefully give me a chance to see what mods, If any, you guys have done or are doing, and no not new to the forum, just finally changed from an E36 to 6er.

Great, welcome to the fun Larry. Not planing on a long run, mostly a get together. Some in the group may want to peel off and do more but it will be a casual day. I'll plan several routes and we'll figure it out on the fly.

* Get together Update *

Looks like we have a meeting spot. Laviggio our local high end spas will be happy to be our meeting spot. I use them and it's a pretty decent place.

They can also provide any services you may want (polish/wash/foot massage ) if you feel like getting there a bit early.

Here's the link, have a look.

I'll update with more date info in a few days.

Hey Reytran! I don't see you on the schedule yet! We need to see your mods dude.

Here's the latest on the get together. I'm very happy with the response so far.

So far it looks like there about 10 people signed up including three M6s and I know of at least 2 more people that are coming, so it should be a good day.

Looking at the current Calendar and best days, it looks like Saturday March 16th is the best day for most. I will wait till mid next week for some more sign ups to make sure, then we'll call it a final date.

Please click the link below to see the info directly. It's an open file.
If you have not signed up, please do so ASAP, even if you're not 100% sure you can make it.

Lavaggio would also like to know if anyone would like any services. They actually have a regular hand car wash/gas station across the street but the do a full killer detail, serious wash/light detail (about $55) other services too.
They do this often and the have about 35 Minis scheduled for May. They also have a small bistro and I think that lunch is included with their services.

Lastly, thanks for the email addresses. I will send out some possible routes for the drive by email on the next few days.

Let me know if you have any questions...
