This spring marks the 10 year anniversary of the southeast BMW Brodeo. This is a 3 day camp out and driving event comprised mainly of BMW enthusiasts from across the southeast in the Appalachian / Smoky Mountain region. It is a great chance to enjoy both the beautiful Appalachian mountains and all the curvy roads it has to offer including US129 The Tail of the Dragon, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherohala Skyway, and many other great roads of the Smoky Mountain region. Its also a great place to meet other fellow BMW enthusiasts and make friends with a plethora of interesting people.
The celebration of our decade of debauchery includes random group drives on some great roads, plenty of group campfire time, free beer, and beautiful wildness camping.
We will be camping out at Smoky Mountain Meadows Campground in Bryson City, NC.
OGs know the early bird drill.
Event registration for a group tent site is $10/day or you can upgrade to a shaded private site next to the creek for $16/day PER PERSON.
You can sign up for 1-4 days.
Registration reserves your spot on the group campsite and covers the tons of firewood burned over the 3 days we are there.
**NOTE: This is very much an adult oriented event. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian and all attendees are expected to be licensed and properly insured before going on group drives.**
–Wednesday May 31st — “Early Bird Meat”
This is probably the most relaxed time during the event. Usually comprised of OGs and people looking to get the best camping spots. Also time for event organizers to discuss what we plan on doing the next 3 days.
–Thursday June 1st — “Pre Game”
A majority of the crowd usually shows up from Noon to Midnight. Moderately rowdy and time for the Early Birds to gather supplies and take a few drives while others roll in.
–Friday June 2nd — “Ladies Night”
If you have a significant other you want to invite of the female variety this would be the night to invite them. Usually 1 night is most any female can usually handle around this crowd during the event (with the exception of a few). Friday usually has a few more group drives involved and also the most people attending. The evening is usually pretty rowdy as well.
–Saturday June 3rd — “Round 2”
Lots of driving throughout the day and lots of food consumed at the end of the day as everyone who bought too much stuff pretty much cooks it all and hands it out to the masses. Those with more seasoned livers usually just continue as if it were still Friday night.
** A few of the OGs are putting together a scavenger hunt on Saturday that will be sure to make the campfire round-table very enjoyable. ** (More to come on this)
–Sunday June 4th — “Hydrate”
Pack up camp and head into town for a group breakfast at Bojangles, Broner award ceremony, and final farewells.
