I voted Ned Devines ...

I really liked CarPool last night, but parking was non-existant.

Carpool Herndon - I everyone who has come out to Carpool knows the parking is terrible.

Champps Reston - There is a parking garage behind Champps for the office buildings there. There should be plenty of open spots by the time happy hour is under way. The surface lots there do get crowded.

Gordon Biersch - Lots of parking on Level 3 of the garage that faces Gordon Biersch.

Ned Devines Centreville - Lots of parking near by at the Movie Theater for pictures and oogling.


I created a Google Map to depict all the locations.

Its the Va Social. I dont complain about the MD social being in Columbia.
Tyson's like many area malls has been experiencing a rash of thefts where your window is broken and they stal your cell, GPS or whatever.

Parking on the third level which is empty most of time is jsut asking for trouble.

Every NCC member is welcome to the VA Social. The idea of getting MD and DC members to attend was the very reason I added Tyson's to the list. Plus the fact that a lot of people work in and around Tyson's. It might be a little embarrassing if the VA members were the minority at this social, but there in lies the challenge.

I always hear from Paul how popular the MD Socials are. Let's show him VA can represent as well.

So get your votes in people. Only 3 days left!!!

Last day to vote! There is no overtime in case of a tie.

Yes, this is a shameless bump.

I avoid Tyson's Corner like the plague and I absolutely hate venturing into there. Plus I'm not really good with directions, that's why I need to plug it into the nav.

Wish I could use that excuse w/ girlfriend for not going to Tyson's but it wouldnt work. She would just drive and tell me get in the car.

Just happy the dressing rooms at Victorias Secret allow guests.

And Tyson's pisses me off they will allow little tea cup rats I'm sorry dogs in purses or carriers or even being held in the mall and stores but they will not allow my collies. My large dog owning friends and I are looking for attorney for a class action suit against the mall and all the stores. Our herding dogs are better behaved then these cute rats.

It sounds like fun. Every social I have been to so far has been loads of fun. The turnout will continue to increase as the weather gets warmer and more clear. Last weeks social at Chammps in Columbia was worth the two hour drive! We should all make an effort to get out and meet with fellow NCCBMWCCA members where ever the gatherings may be. We are a community after all. I went to the Vintage Drive in at the carpool in Herndon this past Saturday and it was an awesome experience... My 1988 ///M6 was the newest BMW there!! There were more 2002's than I have ever seen in one place. It was worth driving through an hour and a half in thunderstorms to get there. Virginia was warm and sunny that day. O.k. I'll step off my soapbox now.
