    Mfest is fun, no doubt, how do you not have fun in Vegas? Is it designed to fill the owners pockets? You bet.

    Well i'm in Vegas quite often since I live in LA so that's not really the main draw for me. What is confusing is that when i read on the Mfest forums they make it seem like the registration fee of 160 some odd dollars covers the entrance fee for the clubs, drag strip, and also pays for some raffle tickets. But when i read some of the info on here it seems like you still have to pay additional money for those things?

    Then in reality there is no point.

    I don't know where the money goes to what thing anymore honestly. It's money going toward a guy, that's all I know.

    That sure looks like the way it went down. There was alot of guys bailing on MFest over on the Board:

    Those who choose to attend Bimmerfest instead we can try to get organized for an early morning run, say Angeles Crest again, have breakfast at a nice place on Pasadena, and then hit the Rose Bowl. And you know me, a good lunch afterwards -I'm always thinking about food, darn!

    Maybe we can start Bimmerfest at the other end in Upland and finish up in Tujunga which is closer to Pasadena.

    It would be awesome if all the M5board members decide to skip MFest all together and stand up against the B.S. that Chris pulled against the community, and show him how strong and united this enthusiast community is and that we will not tolerate it. I know it's a pipe dream if all protested, but who knows.
    Nicely put...

    Why would anyone want to go to Las Vegas on that weekend? Especially if they're driving. It is going to be ridiculously packed out there.
