NT49MD-2018— Not the49 Mile Drive
, Saturday 8 December, 2018
Not the 49 Mile Drive, the BayArea 02 annual rally, arrives in San Francisco again on December 8 (2nd Saturday in December). As before, we'll meet at OceanBeach between 9 and 9:30 AM. Many of you may recall that we assemble across The Great Highway from Beach Chalet on the West end of Golden GatePark. Fulton St. is the cross street and turning left from Fulton St. onto Great Highway, the entrance to the OceanBeach parking lot is immediately from the extreme right lane. Following our driver's meeting (navigators and family welcome), all cars will be off by 10:00 AM. After discovering some major, minor and potentially weird roads around San Francisco (we never leave The City) we will meet again for lunch at a restaurant and review the photos in the handout that each navigator will have numbered during the rally in the order of observation.
Rallymeister Pete Petras is working hard to create our rally route. He works in The City so he has many fun and delightful highways, byways and alleys readily at hand to help us find the hidden gems, gorgeous views and awkward avenues that make San Francisco such an intriguing adventure for all of us living nearby.
Join us for the fun rally, see your friends, learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and quirks, and, of course, share your BMW tales. We recommend driving with a navigator (Wells Fargo would call the navigator someone riding "shotgun"), so the driver can drive and the crew can give turn instructions and watch for the rally photos to number in viewing order. Solo drivers are also welcome, although there could be a navigator or two available before drivers get underway. Kids are always welcome to ride along, provide keen eyes and share lunch!

Hey, do you want a T-shirt with Rallymeister Pete Petras' neat graphic on the front? Go to MotorsportReg [https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/not-49-mile-drive-ocean-beach-parking-lot-bay-area-02-group-410627] and order! Note, there is no need to pre-register (just like previous NT49MD rallys) but going to MotorsportReg is the only way to order and pay for a shirt.
The shirt you can order between Saturday, 10 November and Sunday, 25 November is a white, long-sleeve T-shirt with a crew neck (like our Swap & Show shirts but long sleeves) and the graphic filling the front. (Note that you just see the top of Pete's graphic here; I'll make a separate post with the full image at [Full T-shirt graphic]). Choose from adult sizes: Small, Medium, Large, X-Large or XX-Large. The cost is $20 each. After the ordering closes on 25 November, we will have the shirt you ordered printed and we'll bring it to the NT49MD rally.
Last day to order a T-shirt now extended to 29 Nov. (Thursday).
