I'm letting you all know about a new car event that I've scheduled this summer. Ive noticed that there are very few shows for us to participate in as a united group of enthusiasts sharing our love of cars, along with enthusiasts from other marques such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, and Porsche. I'm creating an all new event this year which will unite enthusiasts from other german car groups and bring us together as a whole.
The event is being hosted this summer in a small creek valley near the St. Croix river, that is Afton Alps ski village, owned by Vail resorts in Colorado. The ski resort is a golf course in the summer parking to accommodate hundreds of cars. They are providing a food truck serving brats and beer (at least for the first year), and will allow us to park in the grass, set up the show, etc.
Right now this event is supposed to be a meet and greet with no concourse judging or entry fee. Registration is free, however I ask that you please do register if you plan on coming so we can make you a placard and one of us can hand it to you when you enter the show which will go on your windshield. I believe the Midwest region would gain much by having a large premier event for all of us to share and congregate. The only places that have such large German shows are on the east and west coast ie. Bimmerfest East and West, Legends of the Autobahn at Pebble Beach, etc.
Twin Cities BMW CCA, MNBMW, and Mercedes Club of America Twin Cities are already involved in this and are working with me, and other large BMW CCA from neighboring states have expressed interest. This will be a large event this year and will only be getting larger as it becomes a tradition. Its still very early in the planning phase right now. I hope this could be fun for us, and will be posting updates for this as they come in.
Know that we do not care for excessively stanced, cambered, or lowered cars. There are already shows for that type of thing. Understand too, that the condition of your car will determine where you will be parking...
The date is scheduled for Sunday, August 9th 2015 from 10:30AM-3:30ishPM
Any questions about this please post or feel free to PM me.
