    Sharkfest 2019

    Roger sent an announcement out to all fellow 8íers in the E31 Chapter, but I want to get the word out to as many people as possible.

    Kai and the gang at SHARKFEST are working on planning SHARKFEST for next year which will include honoring the E31ís thirtieth anniversary. They did this for the anniversary of the 6 series several years ago, and from all accounts, it was a fantastic time.


    Hold the date: April 25 Ė 28, 2019.


    We would love to see a great turnout of E31ís. According to Kai, SHARKFEST usually has 6 Ė 8 E31ís attend, although last year there was a record (for Sharkfest) of 13! There will not be a Southeast 8 Gathering next year in order to concentrate efforts on SHARKFEST. It will be a little centrally located on the East coast (usually in Georgia/South Carolina/southern North Carolina, although the exact venue is still in the planning stage), so next year everyone would not have to make the trip all the way to Florida. In the past there have been as many as 50 8ís at the Southeast 8 Gathering, so letís all plan to go to SHARKFEST next year, celebrate with all the big coupe owners (E9, E24 and E31), and have a fun time together. I attended SHARKFEST last year and can personally attest that it is a great group of people, and I had a really good time. For more information, and pictures and descriptions of prior year's events, check out the website.

    As Kai and the SHARKFEST team send out more information, we will forward it. Please see his information below. Letís have a GREAT 30th Anniversary! And then after that -- Oktoberfest 2019 in Spartanburg!

    It's about that time... (woo hoo!)

    While we continue to work on the venue, I wanted to release the dates for Southeast Sharkfest 2019 so you can mark it down on your calendars. It's going to be a little bit before we get the location information and event details out, but I know a lot of folks (myself included) need to plan early for time off.
    Southeast Sharkfest 2019 will be held on the weekend of April 27th, with early arrival beginning on the evening of Thursday (April 25th) and concluding on Sunday morning (April 28th).
    Stay tuned for more details... and get ready to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the E31!
    Regards,

    I will try to fly out and co-pilot someone or rent a car and follow to attend. Would be fun.
