Location is undecided yet. But will be somewhere within the Chicagoland radius. Hope you can make it.

Cool. Would you be driving up from FL?

We could do a mini-meet sort of thing.

I can do saturday AM as long as you can code my 11/2012 build without getting it bricked.
Can you come into the city? Or somewhere closer to the city?

AM Saturday, Feb. 23rd or AM Saturday, March 2nd?? One location which comes to my mind is the parking lot of IKEA in Schaumburg. They have a HUGE lot.

Any suggestions? Feel free to throw in your suggestions and we shall then pen it down accordingly.

I am supposed to be coming to Chicago on March 2nd, though I was planning on flying. If it looks like a good turnout I might just make the 8 hour drive instead

Well, we have 15 members confirmed. If all show up, then it's going to be a good enough turnout.

Mark,

Got your PM. Appreciate the invite. I would certainly attend if I was in local area. Unfortunately I'm working in Germany for now.

Have you thought about contacting a local BMW dealer in the Chicago area? They might be willing to help sponsor some type of event. Just a thought.

Good luck.

Schaumburg has that nice forest preserve across from Woodfield mall that can provide nice backdrop and loads of parking.

Also, I have invited a sales manager from a local BMW dealer to come along as a second photographer. Will let you know of his availability.

I had a Lexus IS prior to the F30 and a bunch of Lexus IS folks got together for fun and eventually turned it into a big annual gathering of Chicagoland Lexus owners, with local dealerships sponsoring the event. Just a thought.

I think downtown skyline would provide best bacground pics, but lets see whats best for everyone I know Mark was suggesting some parking spots by lake shore drives

Actually I came across a couple decent sized public parking lots along the northern end of lakeshore drive.

So what's the consensus around here?
We can figure out a place once we decide between a city location or a suburban location.

What would be most convenient for you guys? City or Suburbs?
I live in the city, but either is fine with me.
Please post your responses, so we can confirm a location.
