I had to cut my day short because of the one food vendor. My wife is 7 and a half months preg's so we brought some food, but didn't think we'd need to bring a whole days worth...

+1 on this. My buddy was parked in the non-bmw lot and when we got back they were charging him $10 again to park, so he just ended up leaving. They also wanted to charge us the walk-in fee even though I already paid $20 to park in the show area. They ought to hand out parking/admission tickets next time.

yeah that setup was bullshit.

no food, then if you leave you have to repay even if your car is still in the show.

F that.

I left around 1:30pm, I needed lunch bad and wasnt coming back in. Instead drove home and took a nap, woke up and went and got some crabs.

All in all a good day! lol


any get any pictures of my car? I literally didnt take a single photo in the show, not like me.

Some nice pictures are being posted. We had a hell of a caravan. It was nice meeting some of you guys.

Sniz - I believe I saw your car on 95 south after I left Bimmerfest. It really stood out on the road, very clean and glossy.

I agree that the food situation sucked. 1 food vendor and 4000 people ain't a good combo. Afterwards, we ended up at an authentic German restaurant about 3 miles away that was AWESOME!!

I thought the parking could have been handled better as well. I thought the plan was to start filling in the lot from the far end (down where our booth was), but when the caravans showed up early, there was mass confusion.

Luckily, we got great weather and an even better turnout. Hopefully we showed that this area can easily support an event like this and it'll be a yearly thing.

It was a shame that some people thought it was a good idea to start peeling out and drifting at the end. What a bunch of douchebags! I wouldn't be surprised that Ripken wouldn't allow us back b/c of that; they ended autocross there about 4 years ago b/c it was tearing up the pavement (their excuse).

Some HOT models though

I had a great time and it was good to see some guys I have not seen in a while. For a first time event I think they did a very respectable job. The parking and food situation definitely needs to be addressed next time. There were so many cars scattered around I am sure I missed some good ones. I wish they had the cars parked by region or by model so it would have looked a little more organized.

Either way I had a great time and I hope this can be held in MD again.

I guess this is turning out to be the 'official Mid-Atlantic Bimmerfest thread'...

And what was with the protestors? Didn't know about them until I saw the plane WTF?

I agree, it would have been nice to have cars grouped together. There were soooo many nice cars there it just got confusing the way they were all mixed.
