BMW CCA August 23 Bowie MD Drive and Event

Hey Everyone, mdrobc13 reminded me of this great event happening in our area. Let's see if we can get everyone on board for this. I also want to plan a central meeting point for any VA, and MD member so we can drive together to the event. So let me know, I think the La Madeleine on Rockville Pike is a good location but I am up for any suggestions.

August 23, ChapterFest
Baysox Stadium, Bowie MD

I live about 2-3 miles from the Baysox stadium so I'll meet you guys there! Although a run on the Beltway from LaMadeline's and up Rt 50 to Bowie would be interesting for a couple of M3's! I do have a passport Solo that I swap between vehicles! LOL

Butch, I got a question. Why are we going there so early when 8-10 is show and shine registration and the judging doesn't start till 10:30? "NOT A SERMON, JUST A THOUGHT"

Claudio you have a good point but I definitely want to get there before it gets to crowded so we can get some good spots so let's say meet in Rockville at 9 and leave by 9:15?

Butch, let's meet at 8:45 and leave at 9:00. That gives us a little more time. See you then. Maybe, others will show up and have a real showing rolling down 50.

Here is more information that I received via email, hope to see you all tomorrow. So far I am meeting up Claudio at La Madeleine in Rockville at 8:45, if anymore want to come let me know asap because if it is just him we are leaving right away.
Quote:
The anticipation is almost over ... ChapterFest 2008 is Tomorrow!!! The weather is going to be fantastic and we are going to have ton of people in attendance.

Many attendees have asked for an address to the event. Wait no longer. The address follows:

Bowie Baysox Stadium
4101 NE Crain Highway
Bowie, MD 20716


Tomorrow's schedule is listed below. The times are not concrete and may be slightly tweaked during the event.


8:00AM FACILITY OPENS
8:30AM AUTOCROSS TECH INSPECTION OPENS
9:00AM AUTOCROSS COURSE OPEN FOR WALKING
9:15AM AUTOCROSS DRIVER'S MEETING
9:30AM AUTOCROSS HEAT #1 BEGINS
10:00AM SWAP MEET STARTS
11:00AM SHOW & SHINE JUDGING BEGINS
11:30AM AUTOCROSS TECH INSPECTION OPENS
12:00PM FOOD ARRIVES (RED, HOT AND BLUE)
12:00PM AUTOCROSS COURSE OPEN FOR WALKING
12:15PM AUTOCROSS DRIVER'S MEETING
12:30PM AUTOCROSS HEAT #2 BEGINS
1:30PM AUTOCROSS TECH INSPECTION OPENS
1:30PM LAST CALL FOR SHOW & SHINE BALLOTS
2:00PM SHOW & SHINE AWARDS PRESENTED
2:00PM AUTOCROSS COURSE OPEN FOR WALKING
2:15PM AUTOCROSS DRIVER'S MEETING
2:30PM AUTOCROSS HEAT #3 BEGINS
4:00PM CLEANUP AND TEARDOWN
(VOLUNTEERS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED)

Now, what should you bring to ChapterFest? Since ChapterFest is an outdoor event, it is suggested that you bring anything necessary for your comfort! For starters, bring a chair and sunscreen. If you want to put some items out for sale, it's suggested you bring a table, or whatever is necessary, to display.

So you haven't registered? Your dog ate the computer? (... likely excuse) No worries! Walk-up registration will be permitted. We're not positive we will have enough shirts for all walk-up registrations, so, first come, first serve. There still are many Autocross spots available and we should be able to fit a few into the Show & Shine.

We've taken a lot of time organizing ChapterFest, and now we're asking for a bit of help. We need several volunteers to help with working the registration gate. Please email me if you are willing to help out. To top it off, if you're autocrossing, this will count for your worker assignment (no cone shagging)!

I've received lots of great questions and I'm sure that I'm forgetting something. When you think of that forgotten item, shoot me an email to jmthayer@gmail.com and I'll try to get back to you ASAP.

See you tomorrow!

Jonathan Thayer

Hey, since it seems that Butch and I are the only one's meeting up for the drive, we are changing things up. Since we live 5 min apart, we are going to meet in Aspen Hill. If anyone was planning on meeting up with us, PM me or Butch or post. We will then change our plans to meet up with you. Otherwise, see you guys at the meet.
P.S. we plan on meeting at 7:30, so we can get the parking we want at the meet.

Nice meeting you too! Thanks for the loan of Quick Detail..too bad none of us won but with that z8 and the uber-modded M3 (that won too right?) we didn't have a chance! LOL

Hey here is the links I mentioned regarding those wheels VS8's. Nice looking CLS type but dude the silence is deafening from the distributor. If he keeps this up he'll get NO orders!

This was a great event and it was very nice to meet some new people and chill with some old friends. Robert loved to listen to your experiences and have a safe tour in Afghanistan and we'll see you again very soon! Claudio once again you are the man, we'll be getting together soon if not for an event but just a drive or drinks whatever. Drew sorry I wasn't able to watch your run but hope you posted a fast time, hopefully I'll join you on the course at the next event.
