Question Survey - How many Middle East based members on the board?

Seen quite a number of UAE and Bahrain beasts on the board just wondered how many in the middle east with a view to a possible meet after Ramadan.

Been looking on the map for somewhere to stay closer to Ahmed (We all wanna see the black beast) as we will find it a PITA for Visa's for Saudi and Bahrain, so I thought it might be sensible to stay somewhere close to the Saudi border whilst still in the UAE.
Any ideas guys? Looked for Accra and only found Barbados and Ghana seems a bit of a drive .
I know it may sound selfish as it is only a short drive for me but Liwa has a nice hotel, some awesome dune driving (not in M5's) and of course The Rainbow Sheiks car museum will be of interest, on the Liwa - Abu Dhabi road (although there are no BMW's there to be honest - chiplogicpower might get us an invitation to see the special collection?). But then again the road is awesome for pedal to the metal fans.
What about your weekends? Mine is Thursday Friday I guess the Dubai guys are Friday Saturday? How about Bahrain?
Al Ain might be another choice, awesome road up the mountain at Jebel Hafeet and nice hotel on the top, a visit to ChipLogic might be a good idea also, they have a great reputation with M cars.

Listen guys!

If the majority of the middle east M5ers are willing to either drive to Bahrain, or have their cars transported to bahrain for the weekend, i can arrange for the Bahrain International Circuit to make all the arrangements! Track day out, drifting show, drag strip use, lunch and dinner etc..

I can also contact our local magazine Arabia Motors to cover the whole event and do all the necessary arragnements for extra entertainment through out the weekend!!

Excellent idea Ahmed.

We can have it before the end of October or in the second half of Novmeber or later. I will be gone on the 31st for a hip operation and i will be walking on cruches for 6 weeks

that doesnt mean i cant use my feet to operate the beast in the meantime

you dont need a visa to enter Bahrain if you have been a resident for the past 6 months in any country in the Gulf
