UPDATE FOR TRACK EVENT![/size][/b]
Alright boys and girls, I have heard back from the organizers from SCCA and have the official sign up page.
http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.c...617936E30A4C0D
It will be 195 if we just go in on this individually, but I was told if we could get a official list of people who will sign up for this event we can get it for 175. So lets start up a new list of people who will be interested in doing so!
[quote]Alright Boys and Girls,

Many of you guys have been asking and talking about possibly having a meets this year. I know we are all busy and many times they just don't work out.

So here is what I am thinking:
I think it would be nice for many of us to gather and possibly go visit the many BMW shops in the Chicagoland area. When we stop by each shop (possibly) have them offer something for us to make it worth it. Definitely get to see what these shops are about and for people who are far away and dont have a reputable shop in your area to check them out.

For example:
1. VS Motorsports (Possibly give us a deal on oil changes, alignment, or coding)
2. IND / A&L / Victory Road (will update with there offer when it gets closer)
3. Dent Removal is very possible (once this is finalized we will post where and when)
Victory Road and IND (Possibly offer dent removal, or rim fix, or deals on parts that we might want to purchase)

OFFICAL DATES HAVE BEEN SET:
July 29th will be the Shop Cruise and BBQ
July 30th will be the Track Event at Blackhawk Raceway

If track day does not work out, we will changes these dates! I will have more information in the next couple weeks!

Definitely interested in the track day, and perhaps the shop tour.

Bro may be interested in the track day, so could be a +1 if you'll allow an Audi on track...

Thanks for trying to put this together.

In for the track day for sure if we can get to the 35 people. Assuming you have the full track for the whole day there's no reason to limit it to 35 people, you could easily have 80-100 participants with everyone having plenty of track time and a not particularly crowded track.

Do you know what the $9k includes? Is it just track rental? Corner workers? Required ambulances? Insurance?

I have run a few track days for Midwest Council at Blackhawk Farms and the Milwaukee Mile. They are a lot of work but a lot of fun to do. PM me if you are looking for any help getting that organized.
