I thought the show went great, about the food idea, I told people to bring their BBQ, and I only say 1 group of people who did bring one.

Randy,

What a great event... as NICK P stated, it's nicer to see it get bigger and better each year. Hopefully those 2 incidents that occured won't put a bad name to the event.

Guys, not b/c he has so many freckles, but becuase he's really dedicated to the event, we all seriously owe Randy a beer!

Randy,

I've been talking to a lot of people and they are soooo upset that they missed the show because of the weather. # 1 reason, I didn't think anyone would show.

So, that puts another idea in my head... live web cast? We will talk with Mass @ Prioritynetworks Inc. to make it happen if you want.

Hey buddy it was great seeing you again. I must admit you guys did a great job judging the event. I feel as if everyone got exactly what they deserved trophy wise. Well done and I think you guys deserve the round of applause and beers !!

ok here is only only thing that i have to say, now dont get me wrong i love the venue, Mosport is the ultimate venue, but the size of the venue shrinks yearly, i think the problems are these.

-distance, mosport is an easy drive for me (my parents live pretty much right there), but for a lot of people, ive heard bitching and moaning about how far it is. the point of Bimmercruise, is the cruise, which is beautiful.

-timing- september is tough for a good majority of people who both have to get ready to go back to school and those who have kids going back to school, moving etc.

-promotion- internet and the cards are great, however we have to brainstorm a way to get the word out there to the right people.

-vendors/sponsors- each year we loose more of these, i always loved being able to browse the vendors when youve seen all the cars and are waiting for the trophy ceremony

-shelter- had it rained at mosport, there really wasnt any shelter except the bathrooms and our own cars

-food- a good majority waited 1/2 an hour for food... thats crazy

-Now i know we wont be going back to Applewood plaza but those , bar none, were the best shows we had, 300+ cars, paved lot, food in the plaza, vendors could lug their merchandise to it, and the date IIRC was pre-september, when people were still here before heading off to school etc.

this is a pretty long post but my main concern is the venue, if we cant change the venue, we need to promote the venue a lot better.


- also Congrats to all the winners this year, the cars looked amazing, it really made me miss my own car, however dont worry ill be back next year to try to take my trophy back hehe

Thanks Mike it has been a long time. Good job on the judging I know it was hard glad to see my bro came out with 2 trophies. I knew he would at least get one. His car is incredibly clean. Even if he wasnt my bro he deserved at least one for the condition its in

That would be cool, I have always wanted to see an SPL comp in person.

Looks like the cruise was a lot of fun. Great turnout! I was hoping to make it out to this event but had a conflicting family event. So, hopefully next year! I'll be staying tuned to the pics thread!!

How about a "track prep" or "purpose built" class? A lot of guys had their cars set up for track days and auto-X, but don't have any audio, custom interior, flashy wheels, etc, and can't get points to be competitive in an existing class. Just a thought.....

I just want to thank everyone that set up Bimmercruise this year. It was great to see the turn out we had considering the weather in the morning. I hope it just keeps on growing. One thing I would like to see for next year is maybe a mobile dyno? What do you guys think?

Also thanks to all the friendly members that made some of the "NEWBIES" welcome.
