    Where: Westerville Community Center in downtown Hooterville.

    When: Sept 18- That is a Tuesday, yes I know.

    Time: Rags down at noon with the awards banquet at 6 in Polaris so I figure they have be done by 5 at latest. I'll be trying to go about 1ish.

    Why you should go: Some of these take OCD to the max, they make Dark Helmet look dirty. So besides seeing some cars so clean and right they even screw heads are indexed there will be some really rare BMW's there. Always are. Stuff you would never ever see outside of places like Pebble Beach.

    Who's gonna play hookey and join me?

    Watching the radar, seems the rain is moving out and it might just be a darn nice afternoon.

    I plan on being there about 1ish.

    Still hoping to get up there today. Hopefully work cooperates.

    I just noticed that Kelly BMW is listed as a sponsor but didn't seem to see MAG anywhere.....

    Do any of your special weather maps and radar show anything we need to be worried about?

    Just rain. I think that it should stop around 1100-1200. Still cloudy after that though.

    That being said these weather guessers in Columbus really suck.

    You guys might want to check with BMWFEST headquarters. I drove by there about 9:45 on the way back from Discount Tire & I did not see what appeared to be a car show or any BMWs for that matter??? Maybe they moved the date or cancelled.

    I looked all over for info. Ended up calling the base hotel to ask.

    The event has been cancelled for today, no further info at this time. May run out to the hotel later to check if is going to be rescheduled or not

    I'm a little miffed they did not update any online source with this info. There are dedicated Ocktoberfest forums off of the Oktoberfest 2012 | Home site. Information there is spotty at best.
