    2019 E30 Picnic News and Updates

    We'll post updates in this thread for the 2019 E30 Picnic. Check back from time to time. Lots of people already preregistered for the Picnic on June 23!

    Raffle prizes are starting to come in. The afternoon raffle is a popular activity at the Picnic with proceeds going to the LeMay Marymount Museum.

    Here are some great items donated by BMW Northwest. Some various BMW themed bags, dog dish, motorsport bear, an ICE watch, and some parts for a timing belt replacement. I assume for an M20b25 motor.

    Full details for the E30 Picnic at www.E30Picnic.com

      2019 E30 Picnic Poster

      All E30 entries will receive a commemorative 11x17 poster at the Picnic. This year's design is by Owen Craft. The colors represent the paint colors of the E30, with the paint names in German like on the strut towers. Very cool design Owen!

        Free E30 Picnic decal for registered E30s

        Besides the 11x17 commemorative poster, M Team magnet and 3 raffle tickets that each E30 Picnic entrant receives each year, this year you will be receiving an E30 Picnic decal. Perfect for the side or rear glass on your E30.

          Honestly if I was you I would not stay on the east side of town if your concerned about your car.
          Picking anything up i5 from say wilsonville to Tigard should be ideal which is basically 15-20min from down town Portland. Me I'm worried more about staying in Tacoma , in the top 5 of stolen cars in the US lol.

            When in Portland I stay at the Jupiter Hotel. They have a garage they park guest cars in. Best part is you can walk to the Doug Fir right next door for breakfast/lunch/dinner and catch a band downstairs. Hipster beard optional.

              More E30 Parking at the picnic

              We've been able to secure more lawn parking for the 2019 E30 Picnic. We got pretty full last year. This new area (in green) will help as the E30 Picnic continues to grow. This new area is really nice, a well manicured lawn, with a few trees for shade. We'll move the food trucks to this area too. Anyone that still wants to park in the tall tree area (noted in blue) at the South end of the Main Lawn can still request to do so. Just let the parking attendants know.

                Odometer Gears at the E30 Picnic

                One great thing about the E30 Picnic is being able to highlight cottage industries that are helping support old cars like the E30. Without these enterprising businesses it would be much harder to keep our E30s on the road.

                With that in mind, Jeff Caplan from Odometer Gears will be back from Virginia and at the E30 Picnic if you need your cluster's gears replaced. You can either buy the gears from him to do it yourself, or at the E30 Picnic you can pull your cluster and Jeff can swap out the gears on site for you. Here is a note he sent me:

                "People were pulling their clusters and bringing them to me to fix at the Picnic. I was changing the gears as a basic fix at the show. I'll do the same for $50 a cluster this year. I can do more extensive cluster repair such as changing SI batteries, calibration and changing light bulbs at my shop. I have several unnamed E30 shops around the country sending me boxes of clusters to return to OEM status. I charge $250 for the whole cluster. There just isn't enough time to do this type of repair at the show and I would need my equipment and electricity. Doing the basic gear fix like last year is perfect. It would be better if people had them pulled before getting there. That would really help them and me be more efficient."

                Please contact Jeff directly to get on his E30 Picnic schedule if you would like him to swap out your gears so your mileage is accurate!

                Jeff Caplan can be contacted via email at: Sales@OdometerGears.com or cell (757) 593-3478.

                        Early Registration details

                        A reminder, early registration (sometimes called preregistration) is done on MotorsportReg.com. A direct link to preregister is on the main page of the E30 Picnic web site. www.E30Picnic.com

                        The cost to preregister is $16 versus paying $25 cash day of the show. When you preregister we do not charge credit cards until Friday, June 21.

                        Here's my deal with you. We provide early registration on MSReg.com (versus just showing up at the show and paying) so you can get a discount on registration. Early registration helps us get an idea of how many people are going to attend. We even let you cancel before June 20 at 6pm and your credit card will not be charged.

                        However, here is the other part of the deal. If you are still registered after 6pm on June 20, your credit card will be charged whether you actually show up at the E30 Picnic on Sunday or not. We've paid LeMay a healthy fee to secure the East Lawn area for the E30 Picnic. We've paid for portapottie rentals for you to use. We've rented stacks of tables and chairs, along with a number of other expenses. If you had tickets to a rock concert and didn't go, Ticketmaster nor the band would not issue you a refund.

                        If you want the flexibility to wake up on Sunday morning a decide whether you want to attend the E30 Picnic that day, that flexibility will cost you $25 at the gate, rather than $16 by preregistering on MSReg.com

                        So I think that is fair deal. If you want a discount, understand the deal and that last call to unregister is at 6pm on June 20 should you change your mind. This is also when pre-reg automatically cuts off. Don't contact me on Friday asking if you can still pre-register. I will 100% of the time say "no", we have locked down the pre-reg list. You'll just need to arrive at the show on Sunday and pay $25 cash for entry. About 40% of attendees just show up at the gate without pre-registering and will pay $25.

                              Kirk Rollbar for Raffle

                              Also being donated to the raffle is a Kirk rollbar for a 2-door coupe. Never installed. PDF hopefully attached showing an image and some info about the rollbar.

                              Edit: If you win this but can't take it home due to the size, you can pick it up from me at a later date at my home in Bellevue.
