Arrow Fifth Annual Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together-Saturday, June 5, 2010

Note: I've posted a copy of this post to the U.S. Southeast Region events forum, too.

The FIFTH Annual Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together will be held on Saturday, June 5, 2010. Caravans of Mercedes-Benz autos leaving from Austin, the DFW Metroplex, Houston and San Antonio will once again meet at the midway point between Houston and Dallas on I-45 known as Centerville for a day filled with automotive fun! This is an event open to all Mercedes-Benz owners, regardless of the age or condition of their car, from garage queens to daily drivers to beaters. Owners from points beyond Texas are invited, too. We've had repeat attendees from Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Kansas participate in this get together. Do you have family members, friends, or neighbors who drive Mercedes-Benzes and don't know about this event? Tell them to come on out! The caravans will depart at a time that will give them a 12:00 Noon arrival time in Centerville. You can check below for the departure time for the caravan nearest you. We will have reserved parking and a BBQ lunch in a room reserved just for us at the world famous Woody's Smokehouse on the NORTHBOUND side of I-45. After everyone has eaten, we'll head 4 miles south of town on old Highway 75 to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine! Admission to Fort Boggy is FREE. Awards will be given out based on People's Choice for best Vintage Model (Pre 1980), Best 1980s Model "Young Classics", Best 1990s Model, and Best 2000-present Model. Bring the camera, water and some sunscreen to the park because it probably will be hot, though not as hot as the late-July meets (we're hoping for some mid-upper 80s temps this time around instead of 100+). Come on out to Texas's Premier Mercedes-Benz Event and have some fun with fellow BenzNuts. We're gonna have a good time!

Departure Points:
(If you are coming from a town not listed below, (ex: Beaumont, Tyler, Waco) and you are interested in setting up a caravan if you expect 2 or more other vehicles to come along, send me a private message so we can get something set up. Keep watching this list to see if any other cities get added.)

Maybe your club would promote the annual SLKWorld event in Las Vegas on your website.

Even though MBCA attends in good numbers, this isn't a club event. It's hosted by an individual, me. There's also no website for this event, the word about it is spread through various discussion forums and also through some MB related print publications.

Worthy of a good bump.

We're considering coming to this. I wish it was not so darn close to our national event we're attending out of state.

I went last year and it was a blast. Great being able to talk to people and see other cars. Hopefully I'll be able to swing it this year, too.

P.S. The food at Woody's is top notch!

SLKman, I bought a white SLK350 and got rid of the GT-R. Will explain why next time I see you. Couldn't send you a pm becuase of rules here. Anyhow, this looks like much fun and we should make it.

Hey Brent! I got your PM but can't respond due to not having enough posts. But to go ahead and answer your question, the answer is sure, go ahead. I don't have a problem with it. There will surely be others there doing the same with spare parts.

I did not do an official count but I would guess about 25 cars.
