Catoctin Mountain Orchard, Thurmont, MD
Last day to register online: Fri Jun 22, 2012
23 June 2012

#1 FAQ: Do I have to register? It would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Imagine trying to plan an event and having more people show than you have space and food. That is the same issue we deal with when planning events. The venue needs to know how many people to plan for as so they can have enough staff and space available.

We will begin at Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, MD, then on to Wilson's Farm Meats in Catlett, Va. Ending for lunch in Fredericksburg, Va. As always all persons are welcome to attend, whether a member or non-member.


Catoctin Mountain Orchard Thurmont, Va . www.catoctinmountainorchard.com We have been here so many times do I really need to repeat myself. A few of us have been known to leave CMO w/ 12+ pies. CMO is a mom & pop operation specializing in homemade pies, either baked or frozen. They also have fresh fruits, preserves, jams, jellies, dressings and cider and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. YOU MUST TRY THE APPLE CIDER!!!

Note: I highly recommend ordering your pies ahead of time since we are a large group. Ordering ahead will help in us getting underway on time. The pies can be ordered freshly baked or frozen. Some people do bring a cooler with them to keep their pies from sliding around in the trunk, especially since we have a lot more fun driving to do. When you place your order, reference the "BMW group". The pies range in price from $8.95-$10.95. Check their site for the different types of pie.

IMPORTANT: The deadline for calling or emailing in orders for pies is Friday, 22 June. Popular pies: Apple Walnut, Strawberry, Cherry Crumb, Peach, Peach Blueberry, Blueberry, Four Berry.


Next stop, Wilson Farms Meat Co., they have been a family run business for 55 years. They sell every part of the cow, lamb and pig. All meats are cut to order. This is a great opportunity to pick up some great aged meat for the summer. Maya, the owner, is a joy to deal with and is quick witted. Don’t take her jabs seriously, she is only joking.
Wilson's is a cash only business. No checks are accepted unless you are an established customer. It is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you place your order in advance, especially if you want a custom cut of meat. The store front is quite small and they will keep things moving. The meat will be packaged individually wrapped and then boxed tied with butcher’s string. You will definitely need to bring a cooler. We will pass plenty of places to pick up ice. There is also a place at the Exxon station about a 1/2 mile before we get to Wilson's to pick up ice. The cut off date for ordering is 22 June. I will send order form via email if you contact me: harlemknights02@<hidden>

Lunch is a pie run favorite, The Bavarian Chef (Fredericksburg location, NOT the Madison, Va), it has been operated continuously by the Thalwitz family since its opening in 1974. Its cuisine is distinctively German and all the food is prepared onsite using Thalwitz recipes. Its recipes are sought after, but can only be discovered with the senses. When Eckhard and Bruni Thalwitz opened the Bavarian Chef in 1974, it quickly became a local favorite, renowned for its incredible portions of authentic German food and warm hospitality.


We will start at Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, MD. Continue to Wilson's Farm Meat in Catlett, Va. From there on to lunch.


REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!!!

Hopefully we will not be held hostage by any more mountain men, like the last time. Perhaps we should take a different route from the orchard.

That's what makes these drives so much fun...so many memories!

There's a song bouncing around in my head... "Let me tell ya'll a story about a car named Zed, poor mountain driver barely kept his fuel tank fed. Then one day he was drifting on a cruise, and around the corner came some locals drinking booze. White lightning that is... moonshine..."

This information is probably too late, but the best BBQ in Fredericksburg (where I live) is Allman's. Unfortunately, it's a glorified roadside stand which seats about 30 in very cramped quarters. Smokey Bones (1801 Carl D. Silver Parkway) is a passable chain store with a large dining room.

I asked the question at the last BOD meeting and I was told that we are all supposed to be gathered by 0800 for a 0830 launch... I just haven't seen anything in writing and I know at least for me it's at least an hour to Thurmont, MD...

I just picked up a 2002 Z3, do you think I should attend even though I don't know anyone on here? Looking to meet some fellow owners and take it out on some nice roads.

Welcome Matt! You absolutely need to come out and break her in. Nice ride BTW, I have a 2000 M Roadster, although I won't be driving that on Saturday.

Zchild, that sounds like a good idea, where would we meet? I'm guessing somewhere near 29.

Zchild

I live on 29 and 108... Any where along that corridor would be alright with me! I'm thinking NLT 0645...

Hey Zchild, I might have to help a family member move tomorrow so I wouldn't count on me meeting up, I just went from doing the coolest thing to the worst thing.

My Sally-Sue has a fuel issue so I had to leave her in Hanover in the hands of the AT-Speed folks for the weekend so i won't be making it this time either. We got the MAF and O2 sensor issues resolved only to find out at 5:00pm that there is yet another issue... Enjoy the trip!
