MFEST & Bimmerfet on the same weekend this year

Is anybody else upset as I am with this conflict? Not so much about having to choose which event to go to but the implications and motives behind it.

I know, I know, probably not that interesting of a topic. Ok, everybody back to work on their never ending projects...

What's the difference between the two? I've never been to mfest, but have been to a handful of bimmerfests. BF bores me.

I'm not happy about it.. Buh ehh If by some chance I can't go to MFest, I guess I have Bimmerfest. I still choose Mfest over BMF.
