BMW Plant Tours: Cancelled for 2006

We regret that we will not be able to schedule plant tours this year due to a new model changeover taking place at the plant which conflicts with this year's event date. We appreciate your understanding.

3:00 PM to 9:00 PM - Hotel Registration

The fun begins at the elegant Spartanburg Marriott at Renaissance Park. Enjoy your stay at the finest hotel in Spartanburg. Your standard room includes 2 complimentary breakfast tickets and 2 bar beverage tickets.

NOTE: Pre-registered participants can pick up their registration packets at the Hotel. Please note that your registration badge will be your ticket to the Reception and Banquet. You will be furnished with tickets for any other event for which you have registered when you pick up your registration packet.

3:00 PM to 6:30 PM - BASF Hospitality Suite

In addition to the Spartanburg Marriott at Renaissance Park's amenities, EURO 2006 also hosts a Hospitality Suite sponsored by BASF and manned by members of the Foothills British Car Club.

7:00 PM - Reception

The night is topped off by a Reception for pre-registered guests sponsored by Michelin at the Spartanburg Marriott at Renaissance Park. The evening, featuring a light buffet, is a great time to mingle with the participants and honored guests.

Silent Auction

The Silent Auction will begin on Friday night at the Reception. The items included will be available for your inspection and bidding from Friday night until the Banquet ends on Saturday night. Silent Auction winners are asked to pay the amount due at the close of bidding Saturday night.

I'll be there, as I am only about 20 minutes away. I'll probably bring the MGB V8 as it is in much better shape than my 2002 daily driver. Maybe I'll have the 2002 painted over the winter, and bring it next year. The MGB V8 isn't a show car either, but it always gets plenty of looks and discussion.

I look forward to seeing some other 2002s. Hopefully, someone will start theres up on the show field for me, as I'd like to hear a good one run, and compare it to mine. It's hard to know what is "normal" if you have only ever seen yours.

nothing about 02s is ever normal...including the owners.

we're still debating about driving down, but i think we're leaning towards not making it...too little vacation time left and we have a long drive to st. louis the following weekend.

just let me know if i win that 02 raffle!
