    I got together with a couple of fellow coupsters regarding plans for e9 travel this year, and Sharkfest is again on our agenda. I started going six years ago as part of my effort to search for an e9. The event is primarily e24 people, is well run and has a good mix of people. Kai, one of the organizers, sought to become a coupster, but the car he bought was very rusty and far more expensive than he expected, so he sold it before completing the restoration.

    I always see Doug Dolan at this event (although he doesn't always bring his e9). Last year, I attended with Tom Baruch. Alas, Tom and I were 2/3 of the entire e9 population! Here are Annabelle and BMWSKI basking in the sun.

    We were at the factory last year, did a factory tour and saw the Zentrum. While I am sure there will be a BMW tie in of some sort, I believe the BMW sponsorship (and hence the use of the grounds) only arises every four years. That said, they have arranged for us to get on the Michelin test track this year which should be a blast.

    I've spoken to Doug, Tom and Wayne Killen and we all plan to go. If anyone else is up for it, please let us know.

    Sounds like a much larger group of e9's this year. That's great.

    I'm considering attending, but will be transported by the '97 e31. Thirtieth year since e31 introduction. Expecting at least upper teens number of e31's this year (9 last year, I believe). Hoping I'll be able to see y'all there (said with my best southern drawl).

    Cheers,

    Gary-
