2015 will mark the Tenth Annual MB Owners GTG in Centerville. It's kind of hard to believe it's been going on this long. It seems like it just got started! I've had some slkworld members come to the meet before. I remember "SLKMan" especially, and I'd be glad to see you guys return again!

Since this will be the Tenth Annual MB Owners GTG, I'll be working to make this one more special than years past. I've got about six months to work on it!

For those of you who are new to this GTG, caravans leave from Houston, the DFW area, San Antonio, and the Austin area, and meet in Centerville at noon at Woody's Smokehouse just east of I-45 for a BBQ lunch. The private dining room at Woody's will be reserved for us, as will the parking lot on the side. There will be signs directing us. After lunch, we'll head down to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine. The pavilion at Fort Boggy will be reserved for our group. Admission to Fort Boggy is free. Show and Shine 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.

If you want to bring parts to sell or trade, please feel free to do so.

Mark your calendars now!
