    Post Schuh Syndikat Comment and Picture Thread

    Schuh Syndikat 2014 draws to a close.. We were blessed with good weather, good roads, EXCEPTIONAL people and their cars.. The only LEO we saw beeped and waved as he passed.

    We had 21 coupes in attendance this year, plus an M Roadster and couple others. When the official group picture is ready, it will show 19 E36/8's. There was one who was only able to join us for the Friday Drive, and another local who joined us unannounced for a short time on Saturday. That is *nearly* double from last years total of 11, and makes us really excited for next year.

    Awards:

    Most Epic Travel Story: Mark Scire II
    Farthest Traveled: Donny Lang - Tavernier, FL
    Favorite Schuh: Gary and Nancy Marquis

    Great job and an awesome turnout this year! Maybe next year I will try to fly out and hitch a ride with someone down to the event.

    I should still have a spare seat since the woman will still be in school hardcore.

    Mine was marked when Eric said we are doing it the first weekend in May again before Schuh'14 was even over! haha. I'll be dumping the DSLR tonight and hopefully getting my goPro shots from Doug (Dee Ohh Yew Gee) to start going through the 700+ stills I had of the Friday drive.

    My GoPro's largest timing on "continous shot" is 3 seconds... so I ended up filling ~16 gigs of SD cards and have NO clue how they came out yet. That 700 number does not even include the 100+ I'm sure I took with my DSLR

    Definitely in again next year. Great event! Hopefully there isn't a concert again on Friday night next year so we can all make it to cars and coffee! Karting was a blast too.

    Eric and all of the sponsors did a great job organizing and running a professional event.

    I would be interested in any stills or video from the train behind me at the bottom of the hill.

    Awesome event, Eric!!! Calendar marked.

    Are you referring to the "event" behind you at the bottom of the hill? I know there are some stills around. Hoping that the Go Pro caught it.

    Great event - had a blast checking out everyone's coupes and generally hanging out.

    Big thanks to Eric, Nancy, all the sponsors and anyone else who helped make for a super weekend.

    Hopefully next year I can make the Friday drive as well.

    Errr, it may be a bit narcissistic... but I thought *I* was the event at the bottom of the hill. Was there another?

    Now i know I know what event you are referring to. I smelled it all the way down. If you had been behind me a few miles later, you would have smelled my event.

    That was crazy!! The smoke coming out out of all four of your wheel wells was a good testament to how intense that drive actually was.

    Eh, it's my wife's daily driver. For some reason I deciided it would be a good place to burn the glaze off the brakes....

    And no, Chris, we don't need a video of your event.

    Always a judgement call.. Nancy and I discussed a couple of EPIC events. We are a pretty irreverent bunch, but I hesitated picking the spew monster, because I didn't want to embarrass the young fella. Were he a bit older? Fair game..

    "The Most Awesomest Navigator" award will hopefully put a positive memory on the experience.

    Ohh yes, I'm not saying that his event should have been brought to light, and regardless it was hilarious that we stopped 20 cars in the middle of the road to search for Mark's cap

    I'm sure it did.

    P.S.

    I just pulled 337 photos off the DSLR... wohoo!

    Have not yet gotten the "drive" photo link from Doug, and have not touched the RK and Foundation/Zentrum photos... but I've done enough with them for today.

    Thank you for a great time. It was a pleasure to have BimmerDiffs.com sponsor the event and we plan to do so again in the future. I enjoyed talking to familiar faces and meeting new guys to the scene.

    I have been and will be posting pictures and videos to my instagram: http://www.instagram.com/jmthayer

    It was so weird/depressing seeing the last M coupe. It was like being at a funeral and looking at a body. Everyone was quiet and respectful.
