The main event draws near! Since your club last published information in our Winter “Under the Hood Newsletter”, many of the details regarding this years’ Oktoberfest to be held in Monterey CA the week of August 19 have been fleshed out and are now available at the official Oktoberfest website: http://www.bmwccaofest.org/
Here you can find a schedule of events, information and pricing regarding the various social and driving packages which will be available, as well as descriptions of the different types of events and much more.
Registration for the 2013 Oktoberfest is now open.
A little heads up information regarding registration for the event follows:
You’ll need to register for the event at the Main BMWCCA website, (not the Oktoberfest Site above) It’s http://www.bmwcca.org/index To register, you’ll need to log in to your account, so you’ll need to create a logon if you have not already done so. The process involves setting up your “GARAGE” by entering information about your vehicle(s) if you’ve not already done that.
Securing lodging at the host hotel below will be a separate process from registration. This will be done by phone. The process is explained on the registration site.
