    Would be happy to arrange a dinner for e9'ers during the week, the owner of the company I work for also owns Galatoire's so maybe there or a venue where cars could be parked safely.

    I'll check my schedule and the BMW CCA list. If I do attend I'll know by the end of the week 5/26/17. Would love to caravan with other e9s, of course plenty of time to plan that.

    maybe i will have my coupe back at that time. that would be a MUCH better time to be in NOLA than July ... at least 20 degrees difference, perhaps 30. the humidity will be the same.

    Just registered and booked the hotel, will be driving Athena and be in the Judged Classic Clean Class...hopefully there won't be fog mixed with ash from nearby fires like at Legends in 2016.

    Awesome. For those interested I will to put together a list of non-touristy (and good touristy) places to eat, drink, and visit, not necessarily mutually exclusive.

    Also will try to recruit my friends' ceylon and verona to come play. I believe Jim (SaltyDog) is in the concours also. Maybe an e9 dinner and/or plantation tour:

    Steve, definitely interested in that, I did the CCA Social Package...Also plan to do some charity rides, hopefully with Brian Redman in a CSL, that would be a dream come true.

    As some of you know, Shawn and I fly down for this event, no coupe of course. A coupe dinner or plantation outing would be awesome. Mon/Tue/Wed nights are open, I'm not doing any social package, I'm there to help Paul Cain judge at the Concours. I'm hoping the CCA will give us a free lunch for our efforts but I'm not counting on it!

    We could do an e9 dinner Tues or Wed night as I think most will have arrived by then, the question is which CCA dinner would you not mind missing - the welcome dinner Tues or the Muriel's dinner Wed? Or Monday if everyone will be here. Same for a tour, Oak Alley is about a half day trip including eating, we can take the scenic way up river road there and the quicker way home. So chime in with suggestions as I will only be doing the concours (maybe) and not participating in other activities. I can create a poll if that would be helpful.

    Chris, I hope you are my judge. If I have to miss a CCA dinner it's not a big deal. I'll check the schedule.

    Andrew,

    I hope I just have to supervise a team of judges, much easier! They always make the tall guy do the undercarriage judging! Just make sure your coupe is clean as it can be too.

    And don't forget, Tuesday night is Halloween, I think I want to be in the French Quarter that night, it should be interesting!

    Good call, if need be we could have an early-ish dinner and be done in plenty of time for you to see the show, it's a late crowd there.

    I'll be arriving on the 30th as well. My wife Marsha arrives Tuesday, so I'll use the time for cleaning bugs off the coupe. I'm also doing the Classic Clean class, just for fun. Sounds like we'll have a few coupes there to class up the concours. Looking forward to meeting more of you!
