The Collector’s Car Corral will host an open house for our chapter on the 28th of July 2012.

The Collectors Car Corral (http://www.collectorscarcorral.com) was created and designed to provide an environment in which the automotive and motorcycle enthusiast has a safe and secure facility to enjoy their passion for the car hobby.

This facility is located in Owings Mills Maryland. It is a 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art-climate controlled and totally secure automotive and motorcycle storage facility. The Collector’s Car Corral offers vehicle storage, detailing, and a variety of membership related offerings in a unique automotive country club environment.

The National Capital Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America will be treated to a description and tour of the facility by owner and automobile enthusiast Randy Moss, after which participants will be able to take advantage of refreshments and the amenities of the corral until the event ends.

The open house will run from 10am until 2pm on Saturday the 28th of July. There is no cost for this event but participants will need to register on MotorsportReg.com in order for the club to have an accurate headcount.

A caravan to the Collector’s Car Corral event is planned and details will be available on the club website (www.nccbmwcca.org) and the chapter’s monthly email distribution at a later date.

Please mark this date on your calendars, and we look forward to seeing you there.

Hey NCCBMWCCA members,


Who's planning to attend the Collector's Car Corral open house on the 28th of July? The cars that are kept in this place are really amazing. The last time that I was there there was a new Lexus LFA being stored. There are BMWs (including my 89 635CSi) Mercedes, Ferraris, Jags, and Porsches, jusr to name a few marques. In addition it's a great place to just hang out.

Please plan to come out and check out the Corral, the cars stored there, have some pizza on the club, and maybe meet some new friends with similar interests.

It would be really great to have some of the members with vintage BMWs come out and show off their cars as well. (Hint :wink: )

We're looking for a great showing from the chapter.

See you on the 28th!

James

Hey, NCCBMWCCA members,

The 28th is fast approaching! We have 12 members signed up to attend this open house. We're hoping for at least twice that number to be in attendance on the 28th. We're looking forward to showing the Collector's Car Corral owner a big turnout from the BMW club given our huge membership base compared to other car clubs in the area. Let's not disappoint. Sign up now to attend this really unique event this month.

I don't know if I can handle the pressure... I will have to make sure my navigator is good with the route.

All, has somebody posted a route for the caravan?

I did a mini "bull run" on Google maps and I tested it last night. I think I have a route that is very good. It has some lights getting across some of the major arteries but it does have some nice twisty roads and then a cool down period before we arrive.

Will we be able to get there in 1 hour or less? If so, we can try it. I'd rather not change the starting time since this event is promoted all over the place.

Let's go west on Highland and take Ten Oaks to Triadelphia to Marriottsville Rd or something like that.

The route would take about 50 minutes. So if we leave @<hidden> 8:55 or 9:00 sharp we will be in great shape for a 10:00 Arrival at our location. Do we know how many cars are expected to caravan? I think we will have an advantage if we are moving as a group at this time of morning; the general public won't be too active yet.

OK, you're in charge of gathering the troops, getting waivers signed, passing out the route, and leaving on time! We have 30+ people registered, but not sure how many will show up at Maple Lawn for the caravan.

You could probably post the route here and some people will print it themselves.

All,

The President has spoken. We are going to have a drivers meeting for the caravan to the Collectors Car Corral @<hidden> 8:45 A.M. We are departing from the Maple Lawn Cars and Coffee @<hidden> 9:00 AM Sharp. I will have route directions for the drivers and navigators, we will sign the waivers at that meeting, and additional information about caravan protocols will be communicated. To avoid monitoring by "Big Brother" the route will not be posted online.

See you at Cars and Coffee.

Paul, can you bring some waiver forms? I don't have any.

The route is specifically designed to keep a group together by blending some slower sections and some serious twisty sections.

There are even some scenic components that we got by sheer luck!

See you at C+C
