In addition to the regular Cars & Coffee gatherings, there will be cruises to local enthusiast events in the region so be sure to check back periodically. To retain the long-term cohesiveness of the group, please join the Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee Group Page.
Spread the word and see you there!

Planning with the Towne Centre stores is underway and they're excited to have us. Beyond the great reception, the bountiful parking and easy access via I-83 are great assets. The meet flyer is being reviewed...by an actual expert.

Let's get this caffeinated AM party started! Caffeine-free AM partying is also encouraged.


A Facebook Event Page has been created. Feel free to share the link and sign up there as well.

In just 2 days....

This post on the sign up thread has been read 130 times in 2 days,
but only 4 folks have signed up.
There has to be more locals, and people close enough to this EASY to get to meet.

Just Sign and Drive. Oh wait, that Volkswagon.

Title Changed to "Sign Up"

I changed the Title name so folks will know this is where they can sign up to attend the Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee meet. SteveMD might get a Corvette ZR1 and a Ford GT to make a Grand appearance. Plus Arena Motors, through member Arena Motor Dude might have some exotic cars too.
This is just the kind of response this meet is looking for.

With the meet hitting the Event Bar, here's an update for 3/4...

There are over 40 people interested based on the Facebook page. Many others have expressed interest. Word has been spread to Ferrari Chat, MB World, Corvette Forum, Mustang Club of MD, 6speed, VW Vortex, E46 Fanatics, M3 Post and others.

As of today, Hunt Valley Towne Centre's security squad (Broadway Silver Star) is on board. Also, I visited Arena Motor Group in Owings Mills to meet the management. They're very excited about bringing a few exotic and luxury vehicles to Hunt Valley. Be on the lookout for some amazing cars. Great people. Finally, Ritz Camera has printed some excellent postcard-size advertisements. Another excellent crew.

Based on the feedback, the Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee has been moved from a monthly to a weekly event. Starting on Saturday, March 31 and every Saturday moving forward, see you there!

The planning thread has a boatload of developments so check it out as well.

To sign-up and check for the latest developments, check the Facebook Event Page.

Update...The Facebook page has the following stats...

54 Going
21 Maybe
76 Invited

There are many more on the 20+ websites that feature C&C threads (as well as many other car entusiasts that could care less about the internet). Between the threads, dealer visits, car searches (and resultant 4x6 flyer delivery) at HVTC and word-of-mouth advertising, the inaugural event is in great shape!

Hopefully I'll receive the indemnity clause from Greenberg and Gibbons legal team. That marks a significant step. To close, its about continuing to spread the word!

The total of Facebook users listing interest is now up to 95. That group has invited another 80 that are not yet committed. The grassroots effort is strong. Someone told me today that they heard of the meet on a 'Shooting Forum'. Pretty wild.

Sidenote: Bring a packet of Himalayan goji berries to your girlfriend/wife/SO. Start snacking and have them read the back label that shows the purported benefits. Have fun.

Will be there with a JB '07 e90 335. Definitely gonna have to bring the missus along for this... she's a bigger carnerd than me. Living in 21904 currently, but moving in with friends in Towson in August. Transferring to UBalt and, assuming my upcoming interview goes well, I'll be working at ZeniMax -- which is right in Hunt Valley. Gonna be good to meet some people in the area.

I look forward to seeing you there. There will be many people there that will be very qualified to give you interview assistance. For a few moments, you may experience Cars and Interview Questions.

Excellent. The DC caravan continues to grow!

Is the 750 a wild Individual color/interior?

The attendees are doing great with spreading the word. The prime directive is making sure that Mother Nature is on the same page for those cars that don't see the rain.

Earlier this week, I linked with the Viper crew. With good weather, we'll see some special Vipers. I have never seen a Viper VOI.9 in person but if the weather holds, it just may be there.

This morning's Facebook stats...
159 "Going"
62 "Maybe"
232 "Invited"

Check Facebook for the long-term Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee Group Page. Everyone from e90post is encouraged to join. You'll always have the latest info.

Yesterday, I constructed an e-mail distribution list from all of the business cards I received over the past weeks. Dare I say, these are influential people in the region's auto enthusiast community. Since many of them don't tread near Facebook or Twitter, they'll receive regular e-mail updates.

I'm waiting on Chick-fil-A's marketing crew to return with an answer in regards to free breakfasts for the 'usually don't arrive this early', 'driving far' and/or the 'I don't cook breakfast' crew. The owner is out of town until Friday so it may be a last-minute decision. I asked for 1-2 dozen so we'll see what happens. EngineCo52, you won't leave hungry.

The weather doesn't project to be perfect but the inaugural show must go on! If the weather doesn't hold out, owners that do not show in precipitation will hold to next week. Its a fact of Cars & Coffee and its a benefit of hosting a weekly event. Great weather is around the corner! To be honest, clouds don't scare me so I hope to see you there. Represent e90Post!

Here are the Facebook stats as of this evening...

171 "Going"
71 "Maybe"
236 "Invited"

For those that saw Batman and his Lamborghini in the news, I sent him a note about an hour ago. When he has the time and when...we see the Bat symbol in the sky...we'll know what's up.

Hunt Valley Towne Centre, as of this morning, is fully behind our movement. It'll be advertised on their website and the vendors will be contacted so they can offer assistance in any way possible. This is where things could get exciting.

Please join the long-term Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee Group Page so you can receive the latest updates. The original Event Page is nearing its end so sign up ASAP.

Vortex

If we create a Vortex from all the "Wax On Wax Off" we should be able to keep the rain away as cars arrive.

Hi, me and another 1M owner will be there with our 1Ms. How are you setting up spots? Are there separate show car/visitor parking areas? If so, how do we get show car spots? Frankly I'm fine with visitor parking but you will want to put my friends 1M in the show car area. It is not your regular run of the mill 1M
