We like to thank everyone who attended the first Plus event of EuroSunday. EuroSunday Plus kicked off with over 50 BMWs taking over Pavilions in a typical EuroSunday fashion. EuSu's core group was on hand to start the New Year strong. Jo and Gene were there in their red SL 500, Collin in his Maserati, Patt in her Techno Violet M3, Rick in his Yellow M5 and Randy and the A&S gang.

Our first Plus event showcased the wide array of BMWs here in the Sacramento region. Joe and Colby from Luxury Motorcars put on a great demonstration on the detailing service they offer along with their personalized vehicle sales. Wade, from Action Dent Removal, helped one very lucky patron erase a dent out of his hood - amazing work! Jay from Ground Control had a large array of products on hand and was present to personally consult on changing the suspension of individual cars. With perfect weather, it was a great day to meet, greet, and have fun.

For those who were not able to attend the EuroSunday Plus event here are some reminders for you of upcoming events.

1. euro500rally - For those of you who have been considering the event we are still taking applications for those who wish to attend. The event is open to ALL CARS AND MOTORCYCLES. Sorry for the strong emphasis as there has been some confusion on what cars can attend. We welcome all cars and bikes to participate as in all EuroSunday events. The euro 500 rally carries the spirit of the EuroSunday events as it is not just a drive it is an adventure with your friends and family.

For more details please visit www.euro500rally.com

2. Next EuroSunday - will be at the Pavilions on 1-27-08 from 8:00am till 10:30am. The Breakfast Club will meet at 6:00am. RSVP with Mike R. at mike@eurosunday.net. The afternoon drive will be announced at the event.

The first EuroSunday of 2008 is now in the books. While mother nature seemed to over look our weather request for low 80s and sun. The turn out of cars was spectacular considering the chilly and wet weather. Our usual die hard fans where there, some in their alternate cars (mike ;-) along with some new cars. Jeff in his 997 white GT3 and some of the Sac Water gang in there VW’s. Even the Ferrari crew was out in force. Orrie in his 355 spider showed up top down, John in his 360 and Greg in his testarossa to name a few. It was a great day despite the weather and we look forward to seeing all of you in the coming month.

Thank you

EuroSunday Team

Hello everyone:

Our second EuroSunday event in Sacramento was in the rain again. Despite the wet and windy conditions we still had a great turnout for the event. The Diehard enthusiasts truly showed themselves for this event as well as several new participants. Greg came out to the event in his Ferrari and Ron hitched a ride with Jon in a BMW wagon loaner car. Two 911 Turbo owners were new to the event and had a great time with everyone "talking cars" inside of Peet’s Coffee. Everyone spent their time drinking coffee and eating scones in Peet’s coffee while a brave few went outside to take pics and videos of the attending cars.

Unfortunately, the spectacular drive we had planned was rained out, but we will be saving this drive for when the weather gets better.

EuroSunday e-News Announcement 3/4/2008

EuroSunday’s main event for March has been changed to Saturday3/22/08.This change is because the original date of 3/23/08 is Easter Sunday (Larry Stiver's useless knowledge- Easter falls on the first Sunday following the first full moon that occurs on or after the day of the vernal equinox; the vernal equinox is fixed as March 21. There are some highly technical rules for determining the actual date of the full moon, but when you take all this into account the result is that Easter can never occur before March 22 or later than April 25 and will not be celebrated this early in the year for another 20 years)

All the usual EuroSunday event activities will be taking place (including the Breakfast Club) and at the usual times, but all will happen on 3/22/08 at the Pavilions in Sacramento instead. Hopefully the weather will be as perfect as it has been the last few days and we will have a great spring showing.

EuroSunday Flyer. http://eurosunday.net/files/sacramento.pdf - This is a revised schedule to include our "Saturday" meet this month.

Other news and updates;

EuroSunday Plus on Sunday March 9th at the Pavilions - This month's featured marquee is Citroen and Vespa. The Citroen group has been busy pulling its club members from Washington to Southern California, A&S is rounding up the local Royal Bastards Scooter Club, and a few folks are working on the Burgundy Topz vintage Vespa group to have to attend this month's Plus event. Not only do I tip my hat to everyone's effort, but must also acknowledge that this marquee will be one of my favorites for the year. FYI - Plus has quickly grown to exceed the numbers of our usual EuroSunday events. Please be aware of this and arrive early! The featured marquee will be corralled up front and all else will be pushed back in the parking lot.

Euro 500 Rally - We've heard that the reason for so many late registrations has been because of the time it takes to complete the application, and/or not sure of the weather for April. This is where some of you are saying "YEAH! finally...they get me" and others are snorting saying "Come On!" Here is how we'll take care of both of these issues;1.We'll have EuroSunday volunteers on hand to take pics of your car, take your info (drivers license, insurance info), take your deposit check of $145 made payable to Euro 500 Rally, LLC and help you complete the application...all in under 7 minutes!2.For April's weather we'll guarantee that there will be some. We will even put it in writing and sign it "There will be weather during this rally - guaranteed" This is the EuroSunday crowd - "Driven to Drive"!! Tim Taylor and Adam Cook are busy monitoring the rally's main route and in remote chance of snow, they have alternate routes mapped out already. They will be testing all routes in the next few weeks. This rally is to enjoy the drive and the company. EuroSunday Plus and EuroSunday (on Saturday) will be the only two times you can sign up for this event! Registration closes for this event on Easter Sunday. http://www.Euro500rally.com

What an amazing turnout! EuroSunday Plus featured marque was Citroen and Vespa and did they show up! Pictures are already up and it was a feast for the eyes for anyone who loves cars and bikes. We had the San Francisco and the Sacramento Citroen Clubs join forces to show up in plentiful numbers for this event. Seemed as if the late 1930s up to the late 1970's were lined up at the Pavilions for all to see. My best guess was that we had a few of the following; Traction Avant Saloon, Camionette, CV, CV Wagon, 1D19P, DS 21, and SM. A couple of these came stock with Maserati engines. Some had the European rotating headlights while even more had air suspension. For anyone lucky enough to sit in one of these rides...you would have experienced probably the most comfortable seat ever in a manufactured car.

Vespa was ever present as well and lined up right behind the Citroens. We had members of the Burgundy Topz with their vintage scooters providing the right flavor, and also the Royal Bastards Scooter Club with the modern twist, numbers, and the nice bright colors. First time for many and they fit right in with our usual EuroSunday crowd. With Vespa and Citroen owners you can expect eclectic vehicles and owners who hear more music than the band plays...some worries for me early on when 8:00am rolled around and we had maybe six cars in the lot! "They'll eventually be here" said Richard Bonfond - the Citroen organizer with a shrug of his shoulders. By 9:00am the Citroens and Vespas began arriving and were still coming in by 10:30am! What a beautiful array of cars and scooters coupled with some extremely friendly and fun owners.

Many regulars (Pantera, Ferrari, Viper, BMW~cars and bikes, Porsche, Ducati, Triumph~cars and bikes) were there with some newcomers making there first visit like a Ferrari 308, Noble, 1968 BMW R69, Ducati 1098, 2008 M3 (first one in Sacramento), Lotus, VW and Audi (finally some good numbers for VW and Audi!). Citroen owners eventually left for a short drive and lunch at the Fox and Goose. Royal Bastards had a 10:30am ride starting in the downtown which called for an early leave. The Burgundy Topz also had a ride coordinated leaving from EuroSunday, which left everyone else saying what about us? Well...Adam was out of town and no one else scheduled a drive! He'll be back on our next meet which is SATURDAY, March 22nd at the Pavilions. Sunday is Easter so we are EuroSaturday for one month!!

Euro 500 Rally signups are still available on the web (www.euro500rally.com), but EuroSunday's March 22nd meet is the last day that we can accept signups. Volunteers will be on hand to help with the paperwork, pictures, answering questions, and taking deposits. Please get a jump on this. This rally is expected to be an extended version of our events with an absolutely incredible two day 500 mile drive winding through the California mountain passes. Don't miss this one! Great food, accommodations, cars, and people.
