Hey everyone -

The old Gateway Tech that used to be held in St. Louis every year is now a rotating type event like Oktoberfest.

For 2003, it is being called Tech-Fest West and it is being hosted by the LA chapter of BMW CCA.

The dates are March 13 - 16 and will be at:

The Pacific Palms Conference Resort in the City of Industry.

http://www.pacificpalmsresort.com/

(that's near Azusa Ave. and the 60 Freeway between the 605 and 57 Freeways) Rooms should be about $119 per night.

It should be a huge event, with the top vendors of BMW products represented and great seminars.

The event would go something like (some of this is preliminary info and could change):

Thursday night: Registration and get together (maybe some kegs involved? :bigpimp: )

Friday: Seminars and maybe a fun night at the near by Speed Zone

Saturday: Seminars and evening banquet

Sunday: half day

More information will be available on the LA BMW CCA site:

Can't wait! :)

Hmm...if we help, will we have the chance to attend seminars? :dunno:
I guess it depends on what committee you work with. Some committees would be very workloaded prior to the event, while others will be doing a lot of work during the event. Even still, I would think you could be able to work out a rotation to attend some seminars. :)

UPDATE:

Leif Anderberg (who was just elected next year's LA chapter president) is now the chairman for the event.

He will be holding a 'formation' meeting this Friday night, Nov. 15th, at the new Avus Autosport in Glendale at 8:00 PM.

Avus Autosport

Leif has been a BMW CCA member (member #154 :yikes: ) probably before it was called BMW CCA and has vast experience (oktoberfests, etc.) in putting together these types of events. :thumbup:

Again the call goes out for volunteers that would like to participate in helping to make this event happen.

Edit:

For people wanting to get involved, contact Kelley Moon:

No problem. I had been wondering what was up with this event. I think Brad (the previous event chairman from EVO Sport) just has too many things going all the time to have made this event his top priority (and for an event like this, it has to be). I think Leif will throw the necessary energy and direction into it to pull it off as smoothly as possible.

Friday night, honies and Raffi :yikes:


You know Raffi, after those 'extra-curricular' activities, a little volunteer work on one of the committees might do you some good. :D

(since your an attorney, I'm not even going to go into 'pro boner', I mean pro bono work :D )

I was very encouraged by the participation at the meeting Friday night. Even Raffi made great a sacrifice to his bachelor's life by being there :D (I'm proud of you, man)

There are still some committees that could use some volunteers, so anyone wanting to help out, contact Kelley Moon (email address in an above post).

HACK has already been designing some potential logos:

By the way, the BMW front "silhouette" featured in logo #1 and #3 is Raffi's car around the last corner at Sears Point. :thumbup:

It was a pain in the *ss trying to figure out where the headlights are with all the damn tape covering them up.

:lmao: That's great. Any way to make it look like it's vibrating badly from a shredded tire? :D

PS - I wouldn't have admitted it was Raffi's car. He may want royalties to finance his race car. :)

BTW, where is my royalty money? :D :D

I haven't been there yet, but I wasn't aware that it was a real bad neighborhood (and I've driven through some I won't ever again). I thought the bad areas were further West :dunno: Don't know about the landfill either. Someone said this place has 2 golf courses.
