The 3rd annual BMW 4 Corners Meet is in the initial planning stages! After the success of last year, we hope to have much more participation. Right now, we are looking at getting attendees from out of state who are willing to take a road trip and join us at the event!




What is the event?
Well, that is a good question. A group of like minded auto enthusiasts who enjoy owning, driving, and meeting other people for a weekend of fun. People come to discuss their favorite BMW’s and join in on a drive, photo shoot and other automotive festivities!

Where is event?
In a small town in south western Colorado, near the 4 Corners region (where Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona meet) called Pagosa Springs. This small mountain town sits right next to the Continental Divide, and one of the tallest mountain passes in Colorado. Located right in the middle of Durango, and Alamosa, the location serves perfectly as a central location for the 4 Corners region. Pagosa Springs is a great location to cater towards people that are interested in meeting some other BMW owners, but also want to have some fun hiking and exploring, or even soaking at the natural Hot Springs. There is something for everybody!

What will we be doing??
Being that our host owns the hosting hotel and has connections with the town, we are lucky to have a few unique opportunities. One being a group dinner at the local Pagosa Brewery. Meet other people attending the weekend, and relax with drinks after the drive into town. We are planning to have the Brewery to ourselves for the night!!
The next morning, we are doing a mountain drive and photoshoot. Sitting right atop the Continental Divide, we have the perfect opportunity for pictures and photoshoots! On the pass itself, we will have a full ski area parking lot to use! Additionally, we are looking into planning a Time Speed Distance Rally. Attempt to drive a predetermined route in an allotted amount of time while maintaining a target average speed. The driver(s) closest to the target time, win! Prizes will be given out at the car show and BBQ in the evening.
Share your car and vote on your top 3 cars. Raffle could be included, along with giveaways, based on sponsorship.
Late Night, don't miss out on BMW Films: The Hire showing. Located in the bar, the 72″ Flatscreen works as a great display!
On Sunday, head on over to the Pagosa Hot Springs to rejuvenate in the Hot Springs before the trip back home. The local Hot Springs has many tubs with varying temperatures, and will offer a discounted rate for groups of 15 or more.


When is it?
We are currently in the planning stages for the event. Likely to occur the first or second weekend in August, the BMW 4 Corners Meet is the BMW event for the Rocky Mountain region.


Sponsorship:
Right now we are getting together sponsors and logo designs, along with brainstorming what activities to include, along with a t shirt design.
All sponsors will be posted on our website, along with a logo that will be placed on all of the event t shirts.
Please let me know if anybody is willing to help in any way-- I'm open to new ideas for the upcoming event! I know it is 6 months away, but that gives us time to plan activities accordingly!!


Additional Info:
Last years event was a success, and the only thing we wanted to improve was representation from more states, along with more attendance!
I am sure that everybody who went last year is willing to go again this year, along with spreading the new about this great BMW event. The best part-- no registration necessary to attend! Come and join other enthusiasts for a great weekend in a great mountain town.
Our very own Neel M3, will be accommodating us at a discounted rate , not to mention the hotel will be freshly renovated :redspot

Last Year:
Here is a hint of the event last year:

Thanks guys! It would indeed be awesome if we could get some more representation from CA, AZ, NM, UT, and and other states in the area!

We have added a forum to coordinate group caravans and ask event specific questions. Take a look!

Also we have an attendee list to get a rough estimate of who is coming, from where, and with what cars.

So far we have 3 M5's, but all different models, and no E39's! We need more M5 representation!!

Bumping this, window decal has been designed and is in the preliminary stages of printing!! It is very simple and will be something given out as prizes or to those who show up. Also working with a graphic designer for the t-shirt. :alright:



You will want one of these shirts, even if you don't attend, because the design is going to be that awesome!!Also thinking about ways to include the wives and girlfriends so they can have a great time as well! Don't forget to sign up on the attendees tab for periodic updates, that is a tentaive list and does not hold you to attend the event, only a source for periodic updates and idea of what cars are coming.


Over 50 people already signed up, not included those in the facebook group! :M5rev:

So why is this thread allowed to stay in this section and not the timmayfest thread?

Mods you need to be consistent either move this thread that's been here for 3 months or allow a timmayfest thread to be in this section.
