If a few people were down to go Sunday afternoon, the weather forecast looks nice- 68' high and a 20% chance of rain

Id like to see how many people are actually gonna show before we set a meeting place. Also Id like to know where youre coming from to get a middle spot. Everyone in North Ga already can meet at a QT or something outside the city before we drive up. Brett you should see if some guys from the rotary forums would like to some too. If any of you are on the FB groups, let them know, I dont have an account anymore. It would be nice to have at least 10 cars show up. For extra motivation I gotta turn myself into jail on tuesday So this will be the last weekend I get to drive with everyone until july. Hope Ive guilted you all into coming.

Tommy with the silver RX8 said he might make it. I'm sure we could pick up another local rotor head or 2 also.

How about we plan on meeting up Sunday afternoon (3/9) at 2 PM at the Dahlonega Home Depot here. We'll leave at 2:30 and head towards Dahlonega.

Then we can do a drive like this?



I do this run with just my wife quite a bit, so I think we should go with this, tweak the time if need be, and whoever comes is good.

How does this sound? If it's alright with you guys I'll put it on a few local forums and on Facebook.

So I'm a newb to the Bimmer scene. Just got an 02 E46 330i pushing 220k. It was a steal and I needed a car. No judgement! Anyway, I was reading and saw a couple mentions about track days, meet ups, Caffeine and Octane, and some shops that specialize in our rides. Fill me in! I'm in Gwinnett btw.

I have 2 more rotary people that are planning on making it out Sunday afternoon, I say let's stick with the 2 PM time and head for the hills by 2:30. Everyone come out if you're able, the weather is supposed to be nice!

Also, anyone know someone with a dark blue e46 sedan in Dawsonville with an e46 Fanatics decal on the rear quarter window? Whoever you are, I'm digging your wheels.

Sorry to hear, maybe we could plan one a month or so away that won't be on such short notice and do it on a Saturday.

FYI- for any of you planning on showing up for this, don't forget that time changes Sunday morning and goes ahead 1 hour.

Yes sir thats me! thank you for the compliment. Its a long drive every day from Buford to Dawsonville, I'm always on the lookout for fellow E46's.

I'm planning on making it out there for the sunday run. I'm more of a cruiser than a speeder so hopefully I can keep up!

Nice! My boss and I were out to lunch when I saw your car, otherwise I would have slipped and left a note or something. I look forwarding to meeting you Sunday.

I just bought my e46 a few weeks back, so I don't really plan to push it since I don't quite know it's boundaries yet. I'm hoping for a somewhat leisurely drive with some curve hugging thrown in.

I put it on a few groups I know about but I don't know a lot.

I did Atlanta Mazda Owners Club, Mountain Madness, Atlanta Vw/Audi/Bmw/Porsche/Volvo/ Buy,sale,trade Meets, North Georgia car enthusiasts.. those are the only once I know of right now.

If you know of any more local ones, let me know or relay the info!
