    Who has signed up to attend the 3 Across America event? Also does anyone have any idea what to expect from this event? How long will it last? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    3 Across America

    Yeah I signed up. National Geographic Building 900 am FRi. Doesn't look like you get to drive the car. Static display and a bouchure? Would you let a NCC members drive the new 3 series in downtown traffic on a Friday? Maybe some free food. On second thought I may cancel not worth taking leave for.

    They told me NG Building at 9 AM on the phone, but the email I got back says 6 PM at the Sheraton in Vienna. I'm waiting on the letter they said they would send, see what it says.

    I signed up on Monday and I got the 9:00 am @ the National Geographic Building. So from the statement above, I would expect to be there for (more or less) 3 hours. Now the only question that remands is what to expect No matter what, I’ll be looking forward to April 1st!

    Not going to work and checking out BMW’s is always a good thing!

    Here's the scoop on this event.

    The events during the day are open to BMW CCA members only, so depending on how you registered (whether you identified yourself as a CCA member), then you may not have been included in the events occuring during the day.

    The event at the Sherton Premiere in Tyson's Corner is open to CCA members and to "guests" at the invitation of local dealers and to people who registered through the website (but didn't say that they were CCA members).

    9:00am at the National Geographic Society. Static display of all the 3 series cars - of course highlighting the E90. Followed by a drive to Mount Vernon - should be fun at that time of day. ;-)

    12:00 Noon at the National Geographic Society. Static display of all the 3 series for those of us who didn't register in time to make the 9:00am session (that's what I've currently got). I don't know if there will be a drive for the afternoon session, but I assume that there is.

    6:00pm - 9:00pm A reception at the Sheraton Premiere in Tyson's Corner. They should have some cars on display.

    BMW NA will be giving away "goodie bags" at these events. I don't know what's in the bags, so don't ask. They have a limited number of bags for each session. If you go to more than one session (such as the morning and then the evening) you only get one bag.

    Even though the website says that BMW worked with the local chapter, I can say that they didn't. In fact, when I found out that they were planning on National Geographic at 9:00am during the week, I told them they were nuts.

    However, they are making an effort to provide CCA members with a special opportunity with this new model introduction.

    Hmm... well, I provided my CCA member number when I registered, and was told 0900 at the NGS, but the email only said 1800 at the Sheraton. Are they snail-mailing further info, or did I misunderstand that, too?

    Hmmm. I registered for the 12-2 session at NGS and checked the box for being interested in driving. I haven't gotten any confirmation by e- or snail-mail.

    I'll just show up around 11:30 if I don't hear back. If I don't get to drive, I'll at least try to get myself a goodie bag.

    3 Across America

    I signed up last week, and the email confirmatiopn states that it is the Sheraton in Tysons. I'm going for the "Heck" of it. 15 minutes from my office in Friday rush hour traffic! I don't think there is anything but static displays.
