Hi All, I’ve signed up to attend the Legends event in Hilton Head. I was wondering if there
are others attending and if there is any sort of e9 owners meeting. I’ve not been to many car events other than the Vintage. Any advise or opinion of events not to be missed would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark

I'll be there and so will about 11 others from what Chris has said.
We should get together for dinner Friday or Saturday night.
Maybe some others will chime in.
I was at the Vintage with 13 coupes.

I'm also going to my first O-Fest and the LOTA-East for the first time. It would be nice to park together as E9 owners like was done at the Vintage. Knowing everyone's actual name and their forum name would be nice also. Drew

It would be great if everyone attending were vaccinated. I am going to the Vintage in Saratoga where showing your vaccination card gets you past the registration area.

I will be driving up to attend O'Fest for Ever, LOTA East & the Hilton Head Councours.

Registration for O'Fest requires proof of vaccination.

Did not submit my coupe for judging at LOTA East (it is not restored , just maintained as a driver) so I will be parking with the the general public.

Gary--For your records--My last name is Gregg. Getting a list of cell phone #'s, real names, and the forum names is a good idea.
Thanks!
Drew

And all O-Fest attendees must have proof of vaccination and wear a mask at indoor activities. I have received at least 2 emails stating this.

The first time I attended the Vintage, I was in the process of looking for a coupe to buy. I had been active on the forum for about a year, and as part of my quest to find a coupe I attended various BMW events to meet people, learn about coupes and ask informally if anyone knew of a car for sale. While walking through the menagerie of beautiful BMWs parked along main street in Salem, NC, I struck up a conversation about coupes and some specific part the guy I was chatting up had been seeking. I said "hey, you should connect with Stan Chamallas, he had been talking about that part on the forum and perhaps could help you." The guy says: "I'm Stan Chamallas, nice to meet you."

So, maybe name tags would come in handy. My thought would be that maybe we could make up e9coupe.com name tags that we could wear around our necks as an adjunct to the ones we get for each event. Something to wear on a second lanyard for us to easily recognize each other, perhaps using a standard 3 x 4 name tag holder. By way of example, the tag could have the German flag colors black, red, yellow, laid out as on the top of each forum page along with "e9coupe" on the first line, to emulate the look of the header on the forum. Our screen names would then take up the remainder of the tag, with a standard font size set to accommodate the longer screen names (like the OP in this thread).

Not sure exactly how we would implement this. My initial thought is that perhaps someone here with some graphic design talent could create a template that we could each use. We would add our names to the template and have the tags printed using some standard mechanism (like Walgreens business printing services, for example). We would then be on our own for tag holders and lanyards (most of us probably have a dozen of these laying around).

Thoughts?
