    Re: hone comming

    I heard the same when we were at the un-official Homecoming this year. We did the BMW 1/2 drive and factory tour. Our tour guide said that the factory associaties miss us coming there every year and they are talking about doing some type of Homecoming again. The girl at the Zentrum said the same. That being said, there is a small die hard group that keeps going down for an un-official HC. We have a great time driving the back roads and eating great food. And of course the Embassy treats us like so good and they miss us also.

    I heard that Greenville SC was the source of the..

    pressure to have Homecoming return. There was a pretty big hit to the local economy when it stopped.

    Re: hone comming contact

    I found a couple of names that are in charge of events,In Greenville. Maybe a few Emails to them might start something,in getting a home coming for 2012.Ten years after the last [email protected] or [email protected] . It's worth a try.
