|My 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th 99 Homecoming Suggestions (archive)|

I just received the Fall/Winter 1998-99 issue of Acura Driver, the magazine for Acura owners. (Yes, I also happen to own an Acura.) In this issue there was a two page article about NSXPO 98, a May 8-12 gathering of approximately 100 NSX owners in Columbus, Ohio. It seems that they came up with the unique idea of organizing all owners and having the first official event of the "NSX Club of America". In addition to the plant tours of the Honda Marysville, Ohio assembly plant and the Honda Anna, Ohio engine plant they mention "Displays, demonstrations and seminars covering a broad range of topics, from accessories to body detailing to the operation of the NSX’s much heralded VTEC engine system; A mingling session with driver Peter Cunningham and the rest of the RealTime Racing Crew; A demonstration of some of the NSX’s operating dynamics at a vehicle testing facility; And a driver’s school at one of the nation’s premier racing tracks: the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course."
While I do not have absolute proof, I have to believe that all this happened only because Honda of America chose to be involved, and more importantly, to support the energy and enthusiasm of their owners.
Shouldn’t we ask BMW of North America so show similar support for a gathering of approximately 500 of their most enthusiastic owners?
Shouldn’t we expect to see coverage of the 98 Homecoming in the BMW Magazine?
