Not the 49 Mile Drive , BayArea 02's annual rally, comes to San Francisco again on December 14 (2nd Saturday in December). We will meet at OceanBeach as in previous years, 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 diligently on our rally route which is almost finalized. He works in The City so he has many fun and delightful highways, byways and avenues readily at hand to help us find the hidden gems, gorgeous views and surprising streets (and maybe some awkward allies) that make San Francisco such an intriguing adventure for all of us living in the Bay Area realm. 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 say someone riding "shotgun", but BMW did not make Wells Fargo stage coaches), so the driver can drive and the crew can give turn instructions and watch for the rally photo locations 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!
