I have been in the BMWCCA since 2002 and I've enjoyed events with my DelVal Chapter and have made several good friends since then. Looks like the stars are FINALLY aligning for this to be our first ever Octoberfest: Pretty easy drive from eastern PA, kids all out of the house, two bimmers to pick from to drive. I have read the reports in Roundel of all the fun that everyone has with the people and the cars at these events. So many events each day. We love to road rally. Gymkhanna looks like fun. We are not yet track rats, but driver improvement would also be on our agenda too. Also be fun to convoy to the event via appropriate drivers roads. What do you veterans suggest we noobs do to get the most out of the week?
