• BimmerBoost FTW: MFest (Chris Naguit) to change the "unmovable" date for Mfest VII to not conflict with BimmerFest 2013

      And just like that, the owner of Mfest (Chris Naguit's) power play has failed. Just seven days ago BimmerBoost posted its story regarding MFest targeting the same date as BimmerFest and less than a week later the announcement comes that MFest will be changing its date. Mounting pressure forced by BimmerBoost and its members as well as its vendors who were asked to choose BimmerFest instead has forced Chris Naguit and MFest to reevaluate the previously "unchangeable" date.


      This came a day after BimmerBoost's article which was causing a stir on other forums:


      They are currently exploring new dates and it is funny how it is suddenly possible to get a new date that they claimed they could not just days ago. There is a lesson to be learned here namely in arrogance and swallowing ones pride. Tried to take over the scene and he wasn't powerful enough to pull it off. Play for keeps and you can get burned so damage control is in full effect. So, SoCal's two major shows will now be able to accommodate everyone on separate dates. You are welcome SoCal BMW fans:


      Oh and Chris, just a personal message from me to you, don't mess with someone bigger and better at this than you. Something tells me you'll think twice before editing, deleting, or trying to tell me where/when I can drag race with other BMW enthusiasts ever again. BimmerBoost, FTMFW.

        I personally enjoyed this. Shows how far they have fallen and just by how far we have passed them. Dude had like a 5 year head start... maybe he needs some help on how it's done?

        Bottom line imo is, the real winner here is the enthusiast. It would be awesome if those events would be a week apart. That way i could drive to LA then on the way home hit up Vegas...

        Agreed, and the enthusiast should have been kept in mind from the beginning rather than trying to force a move to line one's pockets...

        i'm on the East coast....but judging by all the tomfoolery that came about from last year's show (raffle snafu, club snub, etc.)....i wouldn't even go to Mfest.

        That was from an earlier show I attended but due to it all I never went back. I saw what the show was really for and also vendors have told me what they got in return for their $ (which is a fairly large amount of $) and well I get what the show is about. I'm not giving him my money so he can have fun on my dime, no thanks.

        He saw the pressure mounting and realized he would be forcing vendors (aka $) to BimmerFest instead thereby hurting his revenue since people were not choosing him solely over BimmerFest and so he had no choice but to backtrack or forego dollars. And with this guy you can make a safe bet he will do whatever is necessary for the dollars.

        Hey, I am all about making thr dollars, can not blame the guy for that. It just seems like he is an idiot and has no business sense whatsoever. If I was the promoter for one of the two events I would make mine as far away of a date as possible from the other event. The main reason I would donthat is money, he needs to put himself in the average guys shoes. If he is expecting people to attend his event from all over the place he has to realize it take money to travel, fuel, food lodging. I would make my event far enough away of a date that people would be able to afford to attend two events. Not to mention people having to get time off work, ask permission from wives or girlfriends. Then there are the sponsors and vendors, they are your bread and butter, or at least they should be if he was smart, why put them in an akward situation by forcing them to choose? This guy obviously has no business trying to run an event or business, he is clueless.

        EXACTLY.

        He thought he could force people away from BimmerFest and to him. Clearly thinking he's bigger and better than he actually is.

        Trying to cut out the competition. And he failed...

        I ordered airplane tickets from the other side of the world to participate at mFest just to get a look at Kenton and Marcus's car. I ordered for the entire month of april just to be sure, as this was said to be an annual april event. (I did this because the firm i work at must plan things in good time before they happen... (Take notice if you read this mFest, you could learn something from it))..<br><br>Then it was announced by mfest it would be in may... Fine. Rescheduled flights, other people at work stepped up as the plan for vacation was filled. My boss did more then i could ever hope... Cost me xxx.<br><br>Anyway.. Going to the USA in may! Hoping to have a great time! And is more then likely going to BimmerFest! Click here to enlarge

        Sorry to hear about this mess for you, really poor planning on their part.

        You should get credit or be compensated in some fashion as it was an April event traditionally until this nonsense happened.

        Either way, I hope you enjoy whatever show you go to and your trip.
