    2018 E30 Picnic news and updates.

    Here's a link for news and updates as we lead up to the 2018 E30 Picnic. Check back from time to time, especially the day before the weekend to review the updates.

    First of all, thanks to Garagistic for stepping up and helping with some of the administrative costs for the E30 picnic. They have helped keep the entry pricing at last year's level.

    Also, thank you to the other supporters who are providing great items for the afternoon raffle. The money raised goes to the LeMay Marymount Museum. These folks are:

    Group 2 Motorsports
    Griot's Garage
    BMW Northwest
    Bavarian Autosport
    Bimmerheads
    Odometer Gears

    If you are company that would like some publicity by donating something to the afternoon raffle, please contact Lance Richert at LanceRichert@gmail.com

    Ford Model T Rides again available

    For the second year, LeMay will have their fleet of Ford Model Ts out to give rides on the property. Did you know the LeMay property is 73 acres? The E30 Picnic only uses a fraction of the property on Sunday. The Model T folks will be giving rides for a small donation. I encourage everyone to grab a ride, they drive through the woods, out onto an open field, up a steep hill where they have to floor it to even get up the hill. Next to the BMW E30, the Model T is arguably the greatest mass production vehicle ever made.

    LeMay is one of just a couple of organizations in the country with a working fleet of Model Ts. They actually have classes during the summer where you can learn how to drive a Model T. I took the class, it was a lot of fun. They have 4 more school dates this year. Info here:

      Where non-E30s park at the E30 Picnic

      We have nothing against other BMWs, but the emphasis of the E30 Picnic is the mighty E30 chassis. This is why people come from such distances now to attend, and why we had 230 E30s in attendance last year.

      In the past we did have other BMWs come to see the show, and we stuffed them out on the fringes on the East end as a place to park and did not charge a fee to them, and it sort of turned into a mini car show.

      Well, we've run out of space to do this, so all non-E30s who wish to come see the E30 Picnic are welcome to do so, but they will need to enter LeMay at their primary entrance (with the BIG white sign) and park in the main LeMay parking lot. They will pay someone from LeMay a discounted rate of $10 for adults and $5 for kids to park, which will include admission to the LeMay Museum. They will also be welcome to walk about 100 yards over to the E30 Picnic and see the E30 Picnic show.

      Please help spread the word to your non-E30 friends who may be coming to the E30 Picnic about how non-E30s are being handled this year.

          Bring Cash and Credit Card!

          There are various vendors there that can sell you stuff. Most take credit cards, some take cash. Some only take cash. If the internet is spotty that day and the Square readers are not working, cash really talks.

          So bring small bill cash, and your credit card, and you should be OK for the day.

          Off hand, things that will take your money include:

          Food Trucks
          Day of Registration people ($20, cash only)
          LeMay 1 hour Tours
          Model T rides
          M Team shirt sales (cash preferred)
          Raffle ticket sales (cash preferred)
          Vendor booth selling their merch

                        Raffle Prize: E30 Rolling Shell!

                        Rolling shell from a 1987, winner will need to pick it up from the Smokey Point in Arlington area. Because some people flake out, we'll pick a winner, and a back up winner. Winner will have 30 days to pick up the car. If they have not picked up the car by then, we'll offer it to the back up winner. We might actually pick a back up to the back up. When pulling raffle tickets, if the second winning ticket is for the main winner, we'll keep pulling tickets until we get a back up, and back up to the back up.

                        Here are the details as stated by the person donating this 1987 E30 Shell.

                        "Change in life goals. I acquired this E30 from my son's friend who had it as a donor but moved out of state and left it behind. I had the intent to build a PRO3 race car but situations changed and its been sitting for too long. I've resigned to reality and ready to hand it off. It would be a challenge to restore but perfect for a track car. It's just a rolling shell. There is no engine, driveline or differential. However, the automatic transmission is in the trunk. The front seats are gone but the dash has no cracks. There are keys in the ignition. I have the title but it is not in my name and I will just hand that over."
