Cannonball Run

All, I had a talk with Hans (Prez of M-Flight) and he said on the 23rd of Apr Pentagon Cars sales is doing a Cannonball Run of their own. I don't have allot of details but Hans and Mathias (works at Pentagon and my SA) said they'll keep me in the loop. Pentagon is still putting this together. But just like the real Cannonball run they're setting of a road course and will be having food abd such at the showroom. Everyone that enters to drive gets entered in a drawing for prizes. Hans siad he believes on of the top prizes will be a BMW driving class of some type. I'll probably volunteer some time helping in between my daughters opening day and softball game. Let me know if you'd like any info and I'll keep you all posted. Frank

My understanding is the drive route will be around the area but PCS outside Ramstein will be hosting. I need to check to see if they have any updates as I've not heard yet.

Looks like my daughters SB team has a buy and Hans will have enough people to man check points so I'm looking on driving the route. I think I have 2 coworkers that might go with me. One has a 08" 135 and the other will probably drive his Caddilac CTS-V. Let me know who maybe interested in gathering together. Frank

So it looks like I'll be at PCS round about 1100-1130ish, tentative, to grab some food and see whats going on. Buddy of mine will be in his CTS-V and I'll be in the 1er. May have another caddie in the bunch. Not sure if it's a mass start concept or not but we'd like to be there to roll 1300ish. Let me know if your planning to roll out and maybe we can all get together.

I should be around at that time. Sadly, I won't be able to do the run because I have to go see a family friend around 1300.

True. We were having too much fun driving to take pics. We will do better next time. Enjoyed meeting FDM and Elsa.

Little off topic, FDM and I talked about getting a German America 1 club started up in the Ramstein area along the lines of M-Flight for the M cars. Thoughts?
