      Thanks for the update, Paul. Tim and I will be there probably early, around lunchtime. Really looking forward to it – great itinerary of cool stuff to see and do!

  • John Gilbert

    Hi Paul,
    We’ll drive up Friday morning from the Bay Area in time to register and meet at 2:00. We made our own reservations at Murphy’s in the PSF group. Are you meeting at Murphys for the drive to Big Trees? Since I have a concert on Sunday, we’ll probably leave early afternoon on Saturday and will likely do the drive but may or may not sample cider given that we have a 3+ hr drive home. Too bad we’ll miss the dinner.

    1. Bruce

      Moved to Alabama. The Shark and the 850 are scheduled to arrive by motor carrier on Dauphin Island next month. Regret that we won’t be able to make it. Thanks for all of the fun times and memories over the years.

      1. Paul

        Alabama! Sorry to see you go but life goes on.
        Maybe since you have your 635 still u can hook up with southeast sharks next spring?
        If I remember Nat one of organizers lives in Alabama.

    2. Greg Kennedy

      I may be able to drive up for the day Saturday (live in Sacramento area), is a day trip an option?

      1. Paul

        Absolutely. We have other sharks coming in for the day.
        You will need to register by signing up for the BBQ. Itinerary is on site. We will be swarming at host hotel on sat AM for show n shine and departing at 10:00AM
        Hope you can make it!

    3. Kevin

      Registered yesterday – got my ’88 M6 in February and a friend told me this was a “don’t miss” gathering! Looking forward to it!

      1. Paul

        Your friend is right! If your an e24 owner it is a can’t miss. You’ll have a smile for a month.
        Many great people who know these cars. Looking forward to meeting both you n your car!

  • Bob Clay

    Hope to sneak in in our E-39, Sadly, we let the M6 go to another good home.

    1. Paul

      Hey Bob, we have quite a few who have sold their beloved e24 but are still very welcome. Did you let buyer of M6 know about PSF?

  • Steve Wilson

    I will be there, looking forward to a great weekend with everyone.

  • Pat

    Murphy’s was great last weekend. Just a little smoke and ash from the fire.
    All the activities and food venues are lined up. Should be a great event.

  • Dennis L Jacob

    Let’s hope that the forest fires don’t affect the event. There’s one big fire to the south and the wind is blowing northeasterly. Which is the direction I’m coming from.

  • Dennis L Jacob

    Regarding the schedule, when you write 2:00 leave for Calaveras Big Trees – is that from the hotel? Or is there another schedule for getting to the host hotel earlier for events? Or do you expect folks to arrive in Calaveras Big Trees at 2pm from wherever you might be coming from. It’s not clear to me and hopefully I’m not the only one.

    1. Paul

      Hi Dennis,
      We will be departing the hotel at that time for big trees

  • Jenifer Shields

    FINALLY, I think my husband is coming with me to Sharkfest! My question is whether we have a group rate for the block of rooms reserved at the Murphys Motel? Well, I”m presuming we have a block of rooms reserved….

    1. Paul

      Hey Jennifer, that’s great news looking forward to meeting the third member of your family:)
      Yes we do have a block but no discount. not many rooms available up there so glad to have 20 blocked at same hotel for event. We were lucky. Just mention pacific SHARKFEST or BMW group for that weekend .

    2. Dan czomba

      Oh, that’s great Jennifer… the year I move and don’t go, your husband comes. Haha! He will have a blast!

  • Dan c

    Damn paul, I’ve moved to Colorado. Car is at home but I won’t have enough time at work to take off for the event. Next year for sure! Have fun.

    1. Paul

      c u next event.

      1. Dan czomba

        Take lots of pictures! Love to see.

  • Dennis L Jacob

    Not sure my registration/signup went through or not. But hopefully I’m down for a single person.

  • Dave

    Paul I will be there and also Javier.

    1. Paul

      Great! Who’s car ?

  • Robert Scott

    I’m trying to sign up having no luck

    1. Paul

      Hi Robert,what issues are you having signing up?

  • Ron Bernhardt

    I am in for ’17

  • Jerry

    The web site included in your EVITE blast is INCORRECT! It shows the web site in all capital letters. It should be all lower case letters.
    The capital letters will give you an error.

    1. Paul

      No one else that we know of has run into that. We will keep an ear out

      1. Patti Williams

        PacificSharkfest in all caps won’t come up on the evite.

        1. Paul

          Hi Patti
          Evite? What’s that? Lol
          It has been a pain for soooo many years. Glad to be rid of it.thats why we r here instead. Still trying to get new email format straightened out .
          Got your message n we are familiar with winery u mentioned. We were up there several weeks back checking things out with the crew.

  • Robert (Bobbo) Szilasie

    Give it some time Paul, without a true location to actually sign up to the event on the website that’s specific to 2017, we actually can’t sign up just yet. Pat and myself have already booked our rooms, if that’s any consolation 🙂

  • Paul

    ANYONE COMING?????????

    1. Waymon Yim

      I’m coming with a guess.. where is the meet up location for the show and shine on Saturday?

      1. Paul

        Hotel parking lot.
