Will do man, I'm about to start an attendee list, and post that in the first post.

If the attendance looks low - it isn't as this is being solicited in several other forums, and so far, the feedback we've gotten has been positive. I will keep updating this thread as we decide what we're doing about the HIN cruise.

Is that restaurant any good?

Well, I don't know how many M3s are coming cuz there are a lot of people coming from other forums/non forum users.

Id say about 5 m3's but probably more; as there are a lot of people saying their coming with them, but who knows who will have to cancel last minute, I know there will be an 1988 E30 M3 there, and a 98 m3 for sure, and who ever has responded or will respond from this forum. There will be 30+ cars there.

As far as the restaurant, were gonna do that poker run for a lil bit, then hand out some pretty sweet prizes, and raffles and stuff, $50 bavarian autosport certificate, etc. . .lots of stuff being given away. But back to the restaurant, the foods good, lotta beer inside and other cocktails too, but we'll be ending up at bahama breeze for dinner(end of the poker run) The runs only gonna be like 50-60 miles total, and will be in a circle, ending up in altamonte springs.

Glad to hear you can make it, where in FL are you?

The meet sounds sweet. Any of you guys up for dragging this Friday night at the Gville track? (Yes the car, not the clothes)

Folks line up around 6, gates open at 6:30, and racing starts at 7. I've never done it but the guy who works there says it's great and they rent helmets if you don't have one. He says usual turnout is about 150 street cars.

I don't think so. . .I won't at least, as I only have about 1050miles on the car right now, need to get that break in finished up. Sometime over summer, we'll get the group back together and either head out to Orlando Speedworld or the Gainesville track, I bet it would be fun as hell.

Nice job Frank. Wish I could've been there. How many M's showed up? Was that a M3 with a carbon fiber hood? If so did you get any pics of it and who and where is it from? Pretty sweet all in all.

I believe that is a lady's car actually. . .she is a local, in Lake Mary, and will be coming to the other meets, she has a 330ci.

Including all generations, and models(M roadster/Mcoupe) I would say about 10-11 M's were there.

Orlando or Tampa would be a natural place with Orlando probably being about as central as one can get. It could be a M3 meet or our own little Florida bimmerfest.

Sounds good to me!

I did say in the invite, all Bimmer are welcome from anywhere, only a handful showed up from gainesville, melbourne, tampa, etc.

I guess we should ponder a date too.

I'm not sure how but maybe do it in conjuction with the BMW clubs in the state. Even do it for the whole Southeast. Host it at the track and folks can gather in the parking lot and race if they want to.

If its July, I'll probaly miss that too. :cry: I am in FL from June 17th to June 3oth....then Aug 1st to Aug 11th then is Sept I will start having more time at home again. Our workload is a lot busier in the summer time when the snow is gone. Sept I will be home form the 3rd to the 22nd.

By all means do not schedule a meet around my schedule. It would be awesome if I was in town when a meet is ON!

I think your guys' idea of a State wide or even Southeast meet is an excellent idea. Kinda jealous of the bimmerfest on the West side.

If we can agree on a place and time and I am in town, YOU CAN COUNT ME IN! :beer:

As far as the track location. I think you will get mixed emotions. Personally i will not race or drag my car, but it would be cool to watch others race. I would rather see a meet with a half day poker run included. Maybe a Cruise to a beach location, etc. Just my $.02 worth.
