In conjunction with the BMW Susan G. Komen Ultimate Drive, NCC has been asked to assist with transporting the entire fleet to their next location. We were only asked to handle certain Baltimore area dealerships that are participating in the UD campaign.

Please ONLY signup if you can meet all the requirements; these are NOT my rules. I realize that these locations may not be close for everyone, but we're asking all transports to showup NO LATER THAN 4:30p.

I'll need 25 transports at each location (with 1 backup driver and 5 waitlists). They'll also be a bus to take everyone back to where they started and a light meal will be provided.

You will be ASSIGNED a car when you get to the dealership and check-in (first come, first serve). Please do NOT ask for any specific model; although there will be some vehicles where you must be able to drive a stick.

Please note that preference will go to all active CCA members before non-members are assigned. Everyone will be notified of their standing approximately a week before the event.

Here's the link to register:

wow, pretty good response so far, considering its only been a few hours since registration opened :D

Annapolis is about 2/3 full while there are plenty of spots available for the other 2 locations.

nope, the SGK VA chapter has another group handling that. only the Baltimore area dealers have contacted NCC to handle the transport.

Dang. I was already signed up for Nov 6th, and tried to sign my wife up (she's also a BMWCCA member) as her schedule opened up, but it seems to be full for that day. Bummer.

I have been notified that NorthWest BMW has pulled out of the Ultimate Drive and therefore the transport has been cancelled.

There are still spots available for the other 2 transport locations.

Does this mean that there will be a transport from Tischer to Annapolis?

The Annapolis to DE transport is now full. There are still spots available for the Towson to Tischer transport, but they are going fast.

Do you have a list of all the drivers for the Annapolis to DE transport? That way we know who made the cut.

Paul - et al.

I received a call from SGK (Oct 21- 1630 hours) advising me that NW BMW is cancelled. They will likely call all who have registered for that site. I let the lady know that we (NCCBMWCCA) are also in the process of advising members.

I would suggest that only the management or owners of Northwest BMW can accurately answer the question of why they are not participating this year...

There is a fee associated with the SGK drive.
I think the dealer also picks up the food.
My own speculation of course.

Seems to me, money well spent.
People test drive someone else's car and may decide to buy one in the future.

Thank you, Mr. Senator :)

I was also signed up at Northwest and received a call last night. I received a busy signal on several tries last night to reschedule, so I just went ahead and used the website to schedule a drive. I was disappointed to see no manuals offered/available.

I now have enough volunteers for the Towson transport. I'll see everyone there :)

There are still a few people who have not confirmed their spot, please do so ASAP or someone from the waitlist may rise from the ranks.
