How many guests can I bring? Am I restricted to 3 only? I have a few friends who are BMW owners but not CCA members who are interested in attending and possibly becoming members. I will try to rustle up the E31 SIG for this event.

I think the initial email is sent instantly. Check your spam filter/folder to see if it is getting blocked.

Your registration is not complete until we have the check. For anyone who has registered but not sent a check - you should receive an email by next Tuesday (1/15) asking for payment.

Estimated cost for anyone showing up at the door, and who has not yet paid, is around $175.

BUT we got your reservation TWO times. That does not entitle you to double drinks or double raffle....unless you pay double....

See you on the 19th!!!!!!

Is there additional parking around the Inn (on the street or in an adjacent lot?). Checked it out a few days ago and the lot around the building is pretty small. Figuring staff and other guests, parking on their property appears limited. Just asking.

Craig,

I'm definitely interested! Please add me to your queue to borrow your laptop for a couple of minutes. Now it's not a matter of choosing to either stay-at-home to register or go to the NCC Dinner. Thanks! :tongue: BonBahn (aka Doug)

I hope the weather forecast doesnt scare anyone away tomorrow, be careful out there folks.

Hopefully the Chapter has a contingency plan just in case the weather is worse than predicted. Forget the TV weatherfools for their predictions and try accuweather.com, NOAA weather radio or the Capitol Weather Gang at the WP's website. I learned as DS coordinator never to trust the local guys for weather and depended on NOAA and Accuweather for herding trials. Capitol Weather gang is someone I just came across. They are interesting and but not sure of their accuracy. My sister is a member of the Montgomery Cty FEMA SAR team and has access to professional fee for service weather forecasts that are more accurate than the local weather fools so I consult her.

Haven't we had a a couple Holiday Parties cancelled because of weather.

Watch out for the snow showers tonight. It is easier to drive in 8 inches of snow then in less than an inch. Talk to folks who were in the 20 car accident on I66 near Delaplane on Tuesady about noon.
