Official: Newport News/Hampton/VA Beach Bimmerfest Caravan!

I've searched the Mid-Atlantic threads and havent found anything about the areas listed getting together and cruising up there. So since I'm the FNG and havent really been here for awhile mods feel free to lock/close this thread if there has already been made for this that I may have overlooked. My plan is to leave bright and early to rendezvous with the guys up in Richmond (from bimmerforums.com Link to that thread) unless we can get a big enough group from here to go. BTW I copied this format and some of the destinations from "357i" on bimmerforums.com, so props to him.

The plan...

Where

Start
Peninsula Town Center (Target)
4410 Claiborne Sq E # 212
Hampton, VA 23666-2071

We can meet at the Target in the front of the mall that way we'll be right next to the freeway.

Meet With Bimmerforums at
Bass Pro Shops
11550 Lakeridge Parkway
Ashland, VA 23005

Pit Stop
Wawa
2390 Plank Road
Fredericksburg, VA 22401

End
Ripken Stadium
873 Long Drive
Aberdeen, MD 21001

Link to google maps There are two routes, for I-64 to I-95 and US-17 to US-301, since Im still unfamiliar with the area I hoped you guys could throw in your thoughts on which route to take.

When

Saturday August, 6th 2011

LEAVE AT 5:30am!!! I will be there at 5am.

Its about 240mi and 4.5hr drive start to finish so its important we leave early to get there around 10am.

I plan on driving 5-10mph over the speed limit to make good time and not have a boring drive, of course no jackassery will be allowed and if someone has a good radar detector they can lead the pack.

If I left anything out or anyone has any suggestions post them up and if you'll be attending or not.

My number is 253-720-8831 call/text me if you have any questions or anything.

Who

1. ColtonVTECs +1 e90 328xi
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Any other information about the meet can be found here at bimmerfest.

There's a few of us heading up Friday night and staying at the Marriott right next to Ripken... There is also a group of E46 people who I think will be leaving Saturday morning but I dont' think they have made plans on where to meet first.
