The group block is all set up. Just call and reserve your room. Tell them you are calling about the "Timmayfest block". We have rooms set aside for Thursday - Saturday.

I will be calling this morning to set up my room.......

He did mention that the hotel will sell out by May. That is why there isn't a discount. Just make sure you call early and get your room......

I am just going to be honest here, this will probably be the last year of TF. I know I said this last year, but I think it is time........

Too kind, as always. Thank you.

No drama or BS at all, thankfully. I just think the TF meet has run it's course. Not a lot of interest across the BMW internet community in general. Numbers fell sharply last year, and it seems will again this year. I think it's time to not have an "official" meet every year, but rather a more personal gathering for our close knit group. We can organize something among us, location and date to be agreed upon.

This whole thing is really tough to organize. It takes a lot of work from a lot of people. I actually am just a small part of it. It is difficult to continually ask people for favors when we are all very busy with our personal lives.

Tim, I 100% understand. See attached from 2010 (before HD photos).

The guys in the photo know who they are!

Miss that less stressful era.

You have brought a great many people together and for that I thank you. Most of those in the photo are people I constantly keep in touch with.

while I never attended one...I can appreciate the effort it takes to get everyone together & moreover all the logistics for the venues etc.
Never met you...but Kudos to you for having taken the time to do this all these years!
Fact of the matter is as the E39 gets long in the tooth...the original batch of owners/enthusiasts has dwindled...some have moved on to other M cars OR other brands entirely....we gents are the old guys in the room now...that was really meant more for Irish M5...LOL
personally I still have a couple of M cars but my new love is an Italian car....don't tell my wife...
Hey Irish don't forget the geritol!!..
Regards
M

I have only been attending since 2014 but it is one hell of a fun weekend. Tim does a great job of setting everything up and making the arrangements so we can have a great time. Thanks to Tim and everyone else that plays a part in the planning and execution of such an event.

I missed the first year because I didn't have my M5 yet. I did attend 2011 as my first year. Missed a few, but have been to most. Definitely gained some good friends, made great memories and certainly had some laughs!

T-shirt and decals for 2017 ordered! Hopefully booking my room and reserving my dyno spot during lunch today.

Tim,

Thanks for putting the Fest together again this year. I understand how difficult it is to organize such large events. Your hard work is appreciated.

I will do my best to try to make it out this year.
