July Mini Meet

Watch this space for info on the upcoming mini-meet in July. Starting point will again be the Security Square parking lot on the north side (by Security Blvd) at 1pm. Sunday the 17th. Open to all BMWs. Short meet followed by tour to dinner.

Weekday meet

Anyone up for a weekeday evening meet? Just a quick gathering before the Big Bimmerfest weekend?

I was thinking a Thursday or Friday at Sonic over on Liberty Road. Chime in and let me know what day works best for you. Maybe we can even do multiple ones so everyone can attend one.

Fall Meet 2010

Looks like we have a date and time for the Fall E38 meet with the NY, NJ, and PA guys, up at Valley Forge PA, Oct. 3rd. It’s a good central location to have a meet, then we can cruise to dinner locally.

Valley Forge meet

Sign in here and let me know if you can make it. Also, I’d like to have a late summer local meet at Owings Mills Mall on a weekday evening in September before the PA meet. Let me know what days would be good for everyone.

Shop Talk

Hi!

While many of us tend to be DIY’ers and work on our own cars, often it’s just better to let a pro handle it.

In order to better serve the local E38 community, this is going to be a list of independent BMW specialists and other shops that can help you out. If you have had good or bad luck with any shop in your area from Pennsylvania to Virginia, post that info here. Hopefully this will end up being a great resource for local owners. If you have a shop and want to let people know about it, post here, as well.

Spring 2010 meet

Hi! It’s that time! Time to shake off the Winter doldrums, do some spring cleaning, and get out and enjoy our cars! Time for another spring meet and tour. Since the other one worked out so well, we’ll do it from security Mall again.  Tentatively, it’s set for Saturday, April 24th. I know not everyone can make it out on a Saturday, but fewer can make it out on a Sunday. The plan is the same as before, meet up from 1-3pm at the mall, then tour on to food.

I’ve been meeting some new faces, and I hope to see you there! Watch this space for more info as we get closer.

Spring Meet is done!

The meet was a rousing success. We had 13 cars in total show up, 11 that were able to make it on the tour. Big thanks to all that showed up and braved the possible inclement weather (which held off for the most part). Check in the gallery here for pics of the event. Some for your pleasure (click to enlarge):

Winter Meet

So, who’s up for a small gathering/tour in December? Considering the rain that we’ve got on most of our other meets, a little chill should be par for the course… hehehehe.

Date is now Dec 6th, meeting up at Security Square mall again between 1-2pm, and touring to food. It’d be good to see some of the faces that didn’t make it up to the Philly group meet this last time. I’m going to try and get us into Full Moon cafe, so I’d need a tentative head count to let them know in advance.

Log in and let me know! You can also often reach me at 410.375.4899

Galleries

I’ve noticed that there have been few gallery submissions, and a lot of empty galleries! Let’s all show off our cars in our own galleries, and any pics you have from previous and upcoming meets are very welcome in the gatherings gallery!

Fall’s here! Lets see some E38 and leaf peeping photos!!!!

Visit with Edwin in PA…

Saturday October 10th at 10:30am

To meet up withthe Philly grtoup and Edwin, we’re going to meet up at the MD House on I-95 by 9am, then head on up to the following meeting place:

Meet at the Triumph Brewing Company in New Hope, PA and drive along the Delaware river. There are parking spots all around the brewery — and another huge lot located all the way at the end. Depending on how many folks show up, we may opt to have lunch here, as well.

Triumph Brewing Co.
400 Union Square Drive, New Hope, PA

**PLAN “B”:** If available parking becomes a problem at Triumph’s lots, approximately 300 yards past the Union Square plaza on Rt 179 (aka West Bridge St) is the New Hope/Solebury Middle school on the right side. We can easily relocate the group there if need be.

Anyone needing to contact me that morning can call my cell, 410-375-4899. Hopefully I’ll be on the road by 8 am…
