Registration Update

Cars: 340 -- Attendees: 806 as of this evening.

If I had to go out on a limb and forecast/predict the final numbers,
I'd say that we'll go well over 500 vehicles this year, pushing
4 digits, and a couple of thousand participants. We have well
over 2 months to go, and the registration rate curve is getting steeper!


At least we know that we'll have enough room for everyone this year!!

Tazers and pepper spray. The latter used liberally and indiscriminately. By the gallon. Heck, don't bother with spray; just toss cupfulls of the stuff in people's faces.

Gotta keep the yutes under control, you know

Hey Jon, do you have it broken down by Bmw "model" ?
Just curious, it was cool to see that last year.

Non-BMWs are not going to be let in. We have an "overflow" lot for all non BMWs. The main lots are bimmers only!

You and everyone else BMW or not are of course welcome, however, it is a bimmerfest tradition to have only BMWs on the primary lot.
