Mercedes Year End Meet Tri-state (MD/DC/DE/VA/*) Dec 4 @ 1-4pm

Wanted to share this over here...

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r171...tri-state.html


Posted by AMG Viper:

Hey guys, I just got out of a meeting with the Eastern Region Director of Mercedes Club of America William Hopper, and several individuals from Mercedes-Benz of Baltimore including the general manager Michael Coleman about having a DMV (Delaware/Maryland/Virginia) meet at Benz of Baltimore. Both of them are going to sponsor the event and the dealer has given everything the 'green light' on this.

They're expecting over 100 people and anywhere from 55-80 various year/model Mercedes enthusiast cars including normal Benzs, classics, modded Benzs, AMGs, and at least one race car. Wanted to pass the word along because this will be the biggest Benz meet on the east coast.

Year End Mercedes Meet
December 4th 2011 @ 1-4pm
Mercedes-Benz of Baltimore
6631 Baltimore National Pike, Baltimore, MD 21228

-Meet and greet Mercedes car show
-Free food, beer, wine, drinks and entertainment. (There's a tv in the dealership if there happens to be a football game that day too.)
-Employee price discounts on OEM Mercedes-Benz parts on that day only between 1-4pm (courtesty of parts manager Shaun)
-Competition for best-in-class awards
-Other stuff

I'll be there with the 16v for certain


Here's the direct link to the OP. Posted on the "other" 171 board, 201 board, 190REV and others... Pass it on.

Thanks for the information. Although I'm located in central Virginia, it's about three hours aways for me. My Sundays are normally busy, but I'll keep it in mind. Sounds like a great MB event.

I'm going to try, I'm 107 miles away! I just had spine surgery (5 days ago) and HOPE I'll be driving by then.

More info:

Bob

Glad to hear that you are stoked on our upcoming December 4th event at Mercedes-Benz of Baltimore. And I am really happy to hear that you want to help us work on more of these kind of events in the region.

As you probably know this event is being put together by members of the Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America. We are the most active section of MBCA in the club with monthly autocrosses, and other events like track days, Do-It-Yourself events, car shows and social events.

What you may not know is that we are not all a bunch of stuffy old guys, (sadly that is our reputation!) We have fun with our cars! Young and old, M-B marque or not, our autocrosses prove that! We are actively involved enthusiasts for sure!

Mercedes-Benz of Baltimore is going to be a great supporter, of this event, and we hope down the road of our enthusiast community. Plus they also own the Wilmington DE franchise. So hopefully they will have such a good time hosting us in December, we can get their other dealership to be as actively involved in the community and host something up there as well.

Matt Stavros is our member who is the liaison for the online forums, so work with him on promoting this event.

JD Harriman ([email protected]) is our Social Chair and who is handling the RSVP's for the event, so that we can let the dealer know how many people will attend (don't want to run out of food and drink!) So it is important that people tell him they are coming.

We have a great event planned as you have read: The toy and food drive for a local charity, the car show, and of course the chance to hang out and talk cars with fellow enthusiasts!

Thanks for lending your support of it!

As I get more info, I will post it.

There's a head count at http://mbworld.org/forums/events-gat...1-big-one.html. Anyone else planning on going? It would be nice to have a bunch of SLKs roll there together.

I'd love to do this, my daughter is in DC, but December 4th is not the best traveling time frame ( potential for snow - 8 hours from home in the slk?).....please post plently o' pictures.
