The raffle stuff happened more than one year. And additionally, the article isn't about events from 3 years ago but how the organizer makes money off the attendees. That just happened to be the year the guy who wrote the article attended so he shared his personal experience and never went again. I wouldn't either.

Fact still is Mfest targeted the same date as BimmerFest and on purpose.

Bottom line is that Chris just posted that the dates are going to change for MFest and this is after he and his nut huggers swore up and down that this was the only available date.........I think not
