> High Sierra 02 Fest

This is a non-sanctioned BMWCCA Event​


I am a Sierra Chapter member and I am organizing an inaugural event that we are calling the “High Sierra 02 Fest” that will take place September 12th and 13th 2015, in Minden.  This will be an event only for 2002’s, and is not a BMWCCA sanctioned event.  It is posted on the 2002FAQ website, but I am trying to spread the word to as many 02 owners as I can.  If you know of any members, other than myself that own 2002’s, I would be very appreciative if you could make them aware of our event.  As I said, it is posted on the 2002FAQ site on the events page, but they can also contact me at [email protected] for information.  

Thank you very much in advance for any assistance that you can provide!

Events Details

You are invited to join us at the inaugural High Sierra 02 Fest to be held September 12, 2015 at Minden, Nevada.  This will be a free event, with the only cost for participants being lodging. 

The event will begin on the evening of Friday September 11th, with check in at the Carson Valley Inn Casino, and an informal meet and greet dinner.  Activities on Saturday, September 12th will include a morning drive that will take us through the picturesque Carson Valley and up into the nearby roads of the East Slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Lake Tahoe, providing a great driving venue for our cars, photo ops, and a chance to enjoy our cars and each other.  In the afternoon we will have a car show, barbeque and a tech session presented by Jack Fahuna. 

For those who have the time, we will also have a Sunday morning loop drive through the mountains, that will provide opportunities for any driver that wants to, to break off and head home at their conveneince. 

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Carson Valley Inn motor lodge for $85 per night, double occupancy.  These are nice rooms, located on the first floor, which will let you park your car right outside your door.  In order to make your room reservation, please call 800-321-6983 ext. 1 and mention group number 504254.  This will guarantee you the $85 rate.  You need to make your reservation before August 1, 2015, as any rooms not reserved by that time will be released. 

There are no other charges to attend this event.  The intent is to keep this a low key event, letting 02 owners get together to enjoy each other’s cars and company, therefore we have set a limit of 20 cars/lodging rooms for this first year.  If you are planning on attending, please handle the room reservations on your own, and please contact Ed Blake at [email protected] to confirm your participation and let me know how many people will accompany you, or if you have any questions regarding the event.  I am working on a design for T-shirts, and will contact those signed up for the event with information regarding cost and order information, for those that may be interested.  We feel that the Carson Valley area, just 20 minutes east of Lake Tahoe provides a great venue for enjoying our cars, and hope to see you there.
