Sorry guys. :oops:

Plans put on hold due to rather expensive air tickets to Changchun.

A return ticket, 2 night's hotel plus the course fee will easily exceed $10,000.

Meanwhile, we'll keep thinking of more cost-efficient ways to have fun. Stay tuned!

People who don't know William aka Oxygen here. He attended the M Driver training with us. He works for BMW Guanzhou and he's been very nice and took us here and there after the training.

Welcome Will

Sorry, it's been put on hold.

Airplane tickets turned out costing more than we imagined, which wouldn't justify the trip.

Can the above signed up participants please confirm with me that you will be attending to this coming sunday 11/1/09's even in ChangChun or not.

Otherwise, I'll have to cancel this with BMW China.

I was also under the impression that it's not happening.

I haven't made any application for leave. I don't think I can come.

Ok, guess we shall consider a pass for this event.

Let's focus on the normal driving course instead of -30 degrees.
