Yes it's at Santa Pod again. It think it's normally in September but this year it's been moved to June. The zone has been there the last 8 years, anyone know who normally organises this event? They need at least 10 cars to book a club stand.

I'd be interested too. Not sure if I'll have some enough running in miles to take on the strip by then though!

Sorry Suf I'm way to busy to organise something like this. Maybe Jammo will be up for it again if we get enough interest. Be nice to get the car to its first show after owning it for while now.

Well it was supposed to be about 10 people on E46 zone club stand, unfortunately only 3-4 people showed up!?

I arranged it the previous 2 years, the 1st year was a poor showing from this group and I had to send tickets out to non members(15 in total), last year we had about 10 cars(out of 18). So whilst poor I'm not sure where 3 cars came from, especially when you Mrd, originally had a pass and joined another group without saying!

 

Unfortunately forums seem to be a dying breed and most groups are organised via Facebook now and e46zone can not keep up, well this seems to be true with BMW clubs anyway.

I've had some good meets with this group in the last few years and met some good people who know who they are but I'll not be arranging anymore BMW meets.

Fair play mate, I have noticed over the last year that this forum is not as active as it once was. I'm not on Facebook so I don't know of any clubs or meets. It's a shame really as I quite like the exclusiveness of car forum clubs and them attending shows. 

I will be going to the show anyway if no one else wants to organise it. 

Thanks for the reply Jammo.

I feel the same way mate but in this modern age Facebook seems to be most accessible for most, I just find that there is too much drama lol.

Have a good day though fella!

Agreed! Whilst I don't come on here very often any more, I'll always respond to a PM (assuming I get an email), so if anyone is organising any kind of meet, formal or otherwise, then shout! Would be good to catch up....and see if Sufs car is in one piece!

I've only been once and that was a few years ago with a few of the old lot (Mikey, Aiden, etc). 

To be honest the show was a bit crap but camping the night before and the piss up was great!
