Annual RMC Spring Drive & Lunch

Is anyone planning on attending the spring drive? We usually drive up to Wyoming and circle back down on some twisty roads, and stop for lunch somewhere along the way. It's a great way to get to meet some people as well as stretch your Bimmer's legs a bit.

No, there's no need to sign up, but keep an eye out on the RMC BMWCCA homepage for updates. (Kind of surprising that there aren't any details posted yet.) Typically though, the Denver group would meet up somewhere around 8:00am, and head up to Co's BMW Center in Fort Collins. The Fort Collins group would meet the Denver group at Co's at about 10:00, and leave shortly after.

Hey raceyBMW, I went to the Fall 2007 one as well. We might have met and not even known it. Do you remember a Montego Blue E90 from last year? I went with the "Enthusiast" group, as I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm definitely going on the "Performance" group this time around.

This is from the newsletter
Quote:
The annual spring drive event that we have all been waiting
for. That’s right; it’s our Annual Spring Drive, Saturday,
May 24th, 2008. Dust off your M3, vintage 2002
or any other form of Bavarian iron and let’s get out on the
kind of roads all that expensive
machinery was designed for.
As promised, this one will be
another tour for lots of grins,
great roads, good food and of
course, outstanding Northern
Colorado Beauty. Plan on spending
the entire day away from
home. Your return to Denver
should be before 5pm, weather
and machinery permitting.
This year, we will be dividing
the drivers into three sections.
There will be a “Performance”
group, an “Enthusiasts” group
and a “Tour” group. The drivers
who wish to join the performance
group will require at least one
year of Auto-X experience or completion of at least one BMW
Drivers School. The Tour group will be drivers who are not
interested in testing the limits of their new “sticky” street rubber,
but who would rather enjoy a pleasant ride with emphasis
on the scenery and food stops. The Enthusiast group is just
everybody else who doesn’t fit into the first two groups. The
groups will have slightly staggered start times in order to make
the experience pleasant for all drivers.
This drive is exactly the same route we have enjoyed on
other Northern Colorado Spring drives but I never get tired of
it. To my knowledge nobody has ever complained about the
open roads or varied and outstanding mountain beauty of
the North Park area. The tour will begin with a trip to Laramie
Wyoming, and continue South to Walden for Lunch and a
Buffet feast at the World Famous River Rock Café in Beautiful
downtown Walden. The River Rock is known for its great
eats and the massive hand-hewn logs in its rustic interior, it’s
a Northern Colorado favorite.
Back on the Road to Rand Colorado
on Highway 125, my personal
favorite Colorado “Sports
Car” road. This little jewel of
asphalt is a Bimmer Driver’s
dream come true. Think long
sweeping turns, high mountain
forest and open meadows with
snow capped peaks highlight
this outstanding mountain route
over Willow Creek Pass. After
coming back down to earth at
Highway 40 we turn back east
and on to Winter Park for a
quick stop at the local Safeway
and some afternoon Ice Cream
treats. I can’t decide if I’m in for
the drive or all the Good Food! Come for both and you will be
impressed by all the above and the wonderful spring scenery
and open roads that have made this ride a club favorite.
So clear the board of “Honey Dews” because you really
don’t want to miss this drive. The drive will start at the New
Co’s BMW Center in Loveland. That’s right off I-25 for all of
you who have not been there yet. The Denver group will be
gathering at the RTD Park and Ride lot on 120th Avenue at
8:45am.
We “lucky” Northern Colorado Homeboys will be
meeting the Denver contingent at 10am, sharp at Co’s. If you
have any questions or would like to volunteer to be the Denver
brigade commander call me at 970-219-9821 or email me
at garyo@northengineering.com

Hey guys, I won't be making the Spring Drive unfortunately. I'm headed up to Denali National Park in Alaska for some anti-civilization backpacking. I'm bummed because it's a really great road. You guys will have a blast.

Good news for you guys going to Pueblo the weekend after next.... The horror stories of the Turn10 change are overblown. Yes - it's different, yes, I bottomed out if I drove it incorrectly, but it's not as slow as we originally thought it would be. It's not quite as scary as before, but still makes me pucker every single time.

You will NOT be timing at the BMW driving school, but when I had a passenger with a stopwatch last weekend at the NASA event, I was running about 1 second slower than the previous layout.

In "335i is great" news, I was decimating similarily accessorized (r-comps, coilovers, track wheels, race brake pads, etc.) E46 M3s, posting faster times than C5 Z06 Corvettes and only trailing the C6 Z06 by about 3 seconds. As hard as I tried, I couldn't keep up with him - and he was only on street tires!!!!!! Granted there's driver variation, but we were all in the instructor group so presumably skill levels are reasonably similar.

My student was in a well setup STi - man those things are fast.

Hey guys, just wanted to get the word out as quickly as I could. There was a discussion this morning on the mailing list, and Gary Odehnal does in fact want you to RSVP with him. Please send him a quick e-mail letting him know you will be attending. His e-mail address is garyo {at} northernengineering {dot} com. (Please note that the e-mail address printed in the newsletter is wrong!)

Make sure you're e-mailing him at the address in my post, not the one that was copied from the MSR newsletter article. That e-mail address is not correct.

Use this one:

garyo {at} northernengineering {dot} com

Really? That's odd.... I e-mailed him right before I posted on here, and it went through just fine. (Just checking, but you did replace the {at} and {dot} with @ and . correct?)

This is a copy and paste from my e-mail:

garyo@northernengineering.com



Didn't want to post this like this, as the metabots will find it, but oh well. If this doesn't work, you might want to hop on the Yahoo! message board and post your RSVP there, just in case, although I doubt he'll have any trouble fitting in one extra car.
