View Full Version : 2011 maXbimmer Official Cruise Dates

Hey everyone,

With a new year comes new maXbimmer official events. As per popular request, for the first time we are announcing all of our dates at the beginning of the year. Now you can coordinate your holidays around what's really important: driving for hours just for the pleasure of it.

There are a few other changes in the quest to improve our events. First, the decision has been made to move some of the longer (mileage) events to Saturdays. This makes getting home after 9pm a more viable option for those who work early on Mondays. It also allows those busy on Sundays with family matters, etc to come out and enjoy the day with us. Second, we now have rain dates for most events. While we no doubt still had fun in the wet in the past, the dangers of slippery roads and a large convoy of powerful vehicles are too large to ignore. Plus, it's a lot more fun top down. :P

Anyways, enough talk. Here are the (tentative) dates for 2011 maXbimmer Official Events. Note that these are all subject to change!

Opening Cruise - Sat May 7 [Rain: Sat May 14]

Midnight Cruise I - Fri Jun 10 [Rain: Fri Jun 17]

Lakeshore Cruise - Sat Jul 16 [Rain: Sat Jul 23]

Bimmercruise - Sun Aug 21

Grand Finale Cruise - Sun Sep 18 [Rain or shine]

Thanks guys, see you then. *rockout*

This means spring is just around the corner*par-t*

Quick question: How long are the drives?

Quick question: How long are the drives?

The midnight cruises are IIRC ~200km.

The open and end-of-season are ~500km. Essentially 6-9 hours.

Quick question: How long are the drives?

Depends on the event. Opening Cruise is the longest at around 450km round trip, the rest start are ~150km and go up from there. As events are posted they will each have all of their respective details listed, including expected arrival time and mileage.

Worth noting that in general, the longer the cruise the better the roads and scenery are.

Yeah love the bimmercruises.. it was a blast last year.. I am hoping that we slow down a bit.. how can u look good going that fast lol.. seriously.. I hope the organizers slow the cruise down and kick out those clowns that cause trouble. It attracts negative attention (aka OPP) and gives us car enthusiasts a bad name.

with that being said.. I'll show up to meet the little people I know from this forum. Can't remember anyone anymore.. I'm the guy with the GPS that lend it to some guy for him to get gas and save someone from being kicked in the butt for getting everyone lost .. lol

Hey Mystical, now that you're a Roadster guy, how about bringing back the M Coupe/ M Roadster meets?

Bullet Ride
04-17-2011, 10:06 PM
Out of curiosity how is the rain delay rule being enforced? If there's rain forecasted 24hrs before is it called off? A few hours before?

Might be worth talking about as it shouldn't be something you make a game time call on. It would be unfair for anyone who's coming from out of town to show up and just be sent back home.

04-18-2011, 09:28 AM

Mystikal wasn't in charge for the M Coupe meets, that was all organized by Bruce(X5Hogtown) which hasn't been on the board lately.

Mystikal

Hey Mystical, now that you're a Roadster guy, how about bringing back the M Coupe/ M Roadster meets?

Probably not. I have enough on my plate, series-specific meets won't be a part of my plans from here on. If someone wanted to take the initiative I'd be more than supportive though.

Announced by 9am the latest, but likely the night before.

Also is it possible for an event to be officially cancelled due to rain (i.e. it was rained out on the first date and then again on the rain date)? Or will it run regardless of weather on the rain date?

Mystikal
04-18-2011, 01:13 PM
Regardless on the second date. Let's hope we don't cancel rain for snow. :P

Sorry guys, no Midnight Cruise return.

Also, due to a pair of scheduling conflicts (Trillium BMW Driver Training and H20i) Grand Finale Cruise will take place on Sept 18th, rain or shine. My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Mystikal

Private events are always welcome, that's how Midnight Cruise was introduced. You can post these in the Ontario regional subsection. Just don't expect more than a handful of cars as people tend to shy away from new/unknown cruises.
