Event Description::burnrubbe
BMW Fall Meet is the celebration of BMW ownership and being a enthusiast...whether through ownership or admiration. As more and more become BMW owners in the Washington DC Area, they have always wanted to meet other BMW owners, to show off their recently acquired car, classic or new. As most new Bimmeristas have driven their cars on limitless occasion to experience the thrills of its handling and sensation, there comes a point when they would like to meet others in the area to share the same driving passion. It is because of this that it was necessary to bring back, by popular demand, the Fall Magic of 2006 Wolftrap BMW Meet. This year’s BMW Meet will relive the magic feel appreciating your BMW cars with your friends met at various forums and events.
This event is designed by new members that felt a need to have a annual DC Metro local Bimmerfest type event open to members, their guests and friends. The highlight of the event will be a colossal rally enjoying the Fall cool breeze and colors along Virginia’s parks and its roadways towards Passport BMW dealership. The sponsoring dealership will provide entertainment, lunch, presentation of new products, raffles, club awards and community appreciation gifts. Early registration online secure will first 150 registrants their event participation.
So, come share the camaraderie of the BMW Car Club, maybe have the opportunity to meet other club event chairperson who can further explain the different program available to you as a NCC member. This is also a venue for various BMW chassis owners to find a reason to take out drive their garage queens for a quick Sunday drive. If you have been doing DIYs all year long, use this opportunity to show off our modded car, who else will mostly appreciate what you’ve done but your own fellow Bimmeristas. This will be your time, because there will be no strangers here, just BMW friends that you have not met yet.

thats right Frank, :)

fyi we've hit the 100 mark already as of last night, we can only take 120 as per Passport BMW.

So, folks that registered considered yourself in, and show for Roll-Call at Wolftrap.

However, those classic marque that have registered and will be trailering their cars can go directly to Passport. We know of only Bill W. that will do this, But special arrangement has to be made through BimmerEast@<hidden> or FrankoQ

The Spirit of the Event is the Fall Rally amongst Friends and Fellow Enthusiasts. See you at the Fall Meet

to allow more than 120 vehicles? I just cruised through the forum after being out of town for a bit and would to like to have participated.

I realize that there is sponsorship with this event and they had to cap it at some piont but it appears as though it filled up in less than a week. Given the interest level could we "up" the number for 2008?

Yes, next year we plan to have way more than 120 cars. Passport could only handle this many this year, and they are going thru the trouble of clearing out the lot to host us.

They are planning to open a 10 acre facility by the end of this year, so if we host this again at Passport next year, we'll have more spots available.

+1

I believe Passport mentioned when their new facilities are 100% up and running, they will be able to host up to 450 cars easy.

So far the initial responses have been most encouraging. We envision this annual event to approach bimmerfest levels one day :)

Pls be advised that from todays instruction from Passport BMW, there will be assigned parking for those 120 pre-registered folks. These 120 are the ones they said they can view as valid participants, for food, drawings, parking a gifts/giveaways.

Passport cannot entertain anymore waitlist for the NCC site registration already had around 20 overflow registrants plus whoever else is compiling another waitlist

Their position is, because of the facility restriction, they rather have the nos. they can support, entertain and safely house well, than having a large crowd of unhappy participants. Next years M3 release will definitely be a time for a bigger celebration, since their New facility will be ready by then.

Your core organizer, are diligently, planning and orchestrating things behind the scene, so we can have a smooth flow of cars and folks can have a memorable time.

It will be a great event no doubt! and thks for your patience and support.

Here's Your In-Production Commemorative BMW Fall Meet Shirt

Let me start by giving thks to Event NCC Board Sponsor
VP Zchild who help us get the funds for the project

and add that this project was a group effort:
* starting with the design by FrankoQ :respect:
*pseto like the dated "2007" as we hopefully collect these :rolleyes:
*cycler and tman like a simple look, so the sleeve remarks were removed :cool:
*iatacs19 suggested to minimized the logos/remarks and place at left chest:drool:
*scottz idea of grey color was taken ;)
*to keep it trendy/up to date, dye and prewash was added to the mix. :confused0068:
and of crse NCC and Passport had to be added tastefully at the back collar area :bulge:
thks DC Metro for all your input, so now we know we have something that was collectively designed and created.

:thumbsup: Bravo DC Metro :)

Your previous posting is ambiguous; it states in one place that "Roll Call" ends at 10:00, and in another place that "Roll Call" ends at 9:30. It also states that people already reserved may lose their reserved spots to people on a wait list if not registered "early". That sounds like a poor planning procedure; according to your notice, you should not deny any pre-registered person before 10:00 AM. That is what pre-registration is all about, after all.

Please clarify your intensions. Thanks very much.

Hello Zach,

As NCC VP and coordinator of the Fall Meet, perhaps you can clarify the previous posting response and provide a proper answer to the question. I am sure that other registrants may be as confused about what time of day their participation may be (?) subject to denial. We all know that NCC is an inclusionary, not an exclusionary, Club.

Thanks for providing a logical answer to everybody.

Alan

if you're not registered you can still come on out to Wolf Trap, we even have a special parking place for others doing the same. However, b/c you're not registered, you won't get a goodie bag :(
