Palisades Parkway (partially in NJ) and some roads in Tenafly which I´ve driven to get to DiFeo.

I know that part of 202/206 your talking about. That is a GREAT road, but you always see cops sitting and speed limit is only 50.

Forget the twisties we can do that on our own........ the meet should be about meeting and then doing something we all can agree on and have fun together with.

Drinking/eating/gambling/etc/insert idea here/and here/and here.......

Just my .02..........

Shadye90 and I scouted out a location near the Queens / Nassau border which would be good for a meet.

This isn´t too much of a drive for the NJ people but very few people from L.I. will come to the middle of NJ so this is a good midway point.

If everyone thinks this is a possibility, we can look into this further.

I calculate about 55 miles to Queens from Central Jersey (where I live).

This is O.K. but, what about members that might come from Southern Jersey or Pennsylvania? An awfully long ride for them....

There´s no point that would be equidistant for everyone.

Just as it would be far for Pa. people to get to the Queens/Nassau border (this is a NY/NJ meet, not Pa. in theory) it would be equally far from Long Islanders to come to Central Jersey.

Imagine the disappointment of someone who drives for 2 hours and finds only 5 or 6 E90s.

That´s why we have to find a.) a convenient venue for NY and NJ (not Pa.) and b.) a venue that is a destination of sorts to attract people.

Any April Sunday with a Yankee home game is no good for me.

I have the Sunday package!

O.K. ...let's forget PA. for a minute.
NJ is a big state. If someone was to come say, from the Atlantic City region, it would be 2 1/2 hours just to get to the mall in Edgewater as ml2x5 mentioned, let alone getting to Queens. I think northern New Jersey or somewhere in Manhattan would be more "equidistant" than all the way to Queens.

I agree.

Manhattan does not really offer places where several dozen E90s can park and be photographed.

It is also a 2 hour drive from Suffolk County to Edgewater.

I think we have to think in terms of traditional geographic areas, i.e. the so-called Tri-State area in NY when planning this.

I used to run national events for the CCA (the original Concours that was held at BMW hq for many years) and all too familiar with this issue.

Now, if I could tie this into a BMW CCA NY Chapter event somehow, it might present a two in one opportunity.

So you have experience with this?
That's it.....JSpira is in charge of the meet!

Seriously though, if you could tie this in with BMWCCA that would be AWESOME!!!!!!!

I will see what I can do. I´m going to the chapter meeting tomorrow. Why don´t you come along?

I am a former board member (chapter level) and haven´t been involved with the chapter very much recently. As many of you know, my primary involvement with the CCA is writing for the Roundel.

But I don´t mind coordinating this if I get help (hint hint).
