If you haven't been following our Spring 2007 Meet discussion thread...cliff notes version :D

DC Metro, we hear you!

During our phenomenal October meet that involved multiple local BMW and euros communities, about 50 cars and close to 100 in attendance; folks requested for a follow up event with more emphasis on down time to chill and hang out and get to know one another :drink:

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f143/kl2dc/IMG_0005Small.jpg

So we racked our brains on this one and came back with a casual BBQ concept, through the workings of the open and active discussion thread. The BBQ concept is not new and has been in the planning books for sometime but we haven't had the impetus to push ahead with one in the past.

I must give credit to Scottz71 and Mr.F1_Fan for lending their BBQ logistics expertise in making our upcoming BBQ event, feasible.

So come out and celebrate the diversity that is DC Metro :drink: Also come find out if your DC metro brethren pass muster behind the grill / stove... :laugh:

All are welcome, all are invited...to steal ase2dais's frequently used motto, "there are no strangers here, only friends who have not met"

PLS JOIN US, THERE ARE NO STRANGERS THERE, JUST FRIENDS THAT HAVE NOT MET YET
