    This event will be a unique opportunity to meet many other forum members. It would be nice to know who to look for during that week long event. It will be especially cool to meet some of the members coming from other countries. Since we haven't really come up with a specific way to identify each other (we should at least do name tags!), I thought it would be a good idea to do one central thread simply listing all who will be there. Something we can refer to on site when we seem to recognize a person or a car.
    So if you are heading to this year's festivities, could you list:
    - Your name
    - Where you are coming from
    - The dates you will be there
    - Specific events you will attend.
    - If you bring your car, list the model, color and any recognizable feature so we can spot it easily

    I guess I might as well get the ball rolling...

    - Bo Struye
    - Coming from Los Angeles
    - Will be there Friday night and Saturday
    - My son and I will try to sneak in the BMWCCA dinner Friday night to hear the Alpina founder and see some of the cars he is bringing. On Saturday we will be mostly at the track but possibly try and take a quick peak as they set up for the concourse on Sunday.
    - Not bringing my car.

    actually my Coupe has to stay home, as I have limited time available, and those days of the 24 hour drive from Vancouver to California are well behind me now. :(

    My e9 is in pieces at the moment
    Will arrive sometime Thursday and depart late Sunday night.
    Coming with a friend who is judging at PB. My wife's interest in vintage cars is nil. Even in Carmel. Staying at Asilomar Conf Center in PG. Never stayed there before, but they had a room and it was cheap.
    Coming from Sanibel Florida.
    Will have my rental car plus my buddy's 928 that he will show at the Porsche thing same day as Legends.
    Will go Legends, maybe the Porsche thing same day, track Saturday, PB Concours Sunday. Maybe Concorso Italiano to check out the Alfas and Lancias.
    Can we get track tickets just for one day?
    Any way to know when the e9s will be on the track? Got to see two or three at Sebring and they sound awesome and were duking it out with the Dekon Monzas.
    Anyone know exactly what BMWs will be on display at the Concours on Sunday?

    Scott,

    You ask too many questions! Expect 20-24 BMWs at Pebble as there are two classes for the featured marque year, usually only one. Get a single track ticket through Laguna Seca. Join us Thur eve in Pacific Grove, just around the corner from Asilomar. Over forty coupes at Legends and at track Sat.

    Chris

    I'll be at the track Friday only. Is there anything planned Friday night? Beverages somewhere? I'll be with a small family group but would like to meet some of you...

    - Your name - Tod Bryant
    - Where you are coming from - Canton, MA
    - The dates you will be there - 8/14-21 (driving up from the south, arriving on 8/15)
    - Specific events you will attend - Legends, PB concours, still figuring out the rest
    - If you bring your car, list the model, color and any recognizable feature so we can spot it easily - looks just like my Avatar pic except it has a front bumper now. Look for the blue coupe BBS wheels with the gold centers

    We're staying at a house in Salinas. Looking forward to putting faces with names.
