DC area M5/M6 Owners Shenandoah Cruise *Saturday, March 8th*

EVENT IS SUBJECT TO WEATHER

**This event will not include Skyline Run**

M5board link:
http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/usa...march-8th.html

It's that time of year again where I've gotten the itch to have a meet and drive for us M5/M6 owners in the DC area. Due to time constraints for me and work, I'll be doing the same route.


This event has been scheduled for Saturday, 8 March.

If there is bad weather, alternate date is Sunday, 9 March

This will be a one day affair, that will probably last approx 4-5 hours.

We will meet at 0900 am at Fairfax Corner Shopping Center (across from the Fair Oaks mall)
at the parking lot adjacent to the Rave Fairfax Corner Movie Theater (western side)

meet/start point address:
Rave Fairfax Corner 14‎
11900 Palace Way
Fairfax, VA, 22030

From the start point, we will depart 0915 am and head out west on I-66 towards Front Royal. We will make a pit stop at the Apple House to grab some coffee/doughnuts and to top off on gas (for those that need it). The Apple House is very well renowned for their doughnuts and I highly recommend getting some!

The Apple House
4675 John Marshall Hwy
Linden, Virginia 22642

After the Apple House, we will once again make our way to I-66 heading West, the onto I-81 South. Then we will break off for some back country roads in the Shenandoah valley into W. Virginia. We will stop for lunch in Wardensville, W. VA at the Lost River Brewing Company and to top off on gas again.

Address:
Lost River Brewing Company
155 West Main Street
Wardensville, WV 26851

(If it's closed, then we'll just buy snacks at the gas station down the street)

From there we will make our way back through more back roads, stop at Loves Truck stop for the end-point, and then everyone can be on their merry way!

Route:

**This event is intended for a focused group of M5/M6 owners. It is rare that we all get together, or even see other M5/M6 all together in one place. However, exceptions can be made but would like that to be limited and keep it special for us. Just let me know in advance.

**Disclaimer: Driving will be brisk on the back roads, but safety is paramount!**

**Make sure your tires have air and enough tread on them, and bring a qt of 10w/60 oil as a spare - just in case**

**I recommend you leave DSC ON...**

**PLEASE RSVP BY ADDING YOUR NAME TO THE LIST**



Here are some quick references for meet points:

I don't know if I'll be able to make this one. I've actually got a special project going on in preparation for the April Pocono Side by Side Racing event. My M5 is going to be in the shop for almost all of the month of March.

I may have to postpone this anyway if the snow isn't clear.

All,

I will post go, or no-go for this event by Friday afternoon between 4:30 and 5 pm. This event will depend on how fast the snow melts. Given the route that involves back-country and mountain roads, I would rather postpone this event than risk unsafe driving conditions. That said, I will call ahead to the lunch stop and inquire as to the status of the roads. If not favorable, I will post accordingly.

Stay tuned!
