Arrow Ninth Annual Texas Mercedes-Benz Owners GTG - Saturday May 17, 2014

Over the years, I've had requests to hold this GTG at an earlier date to avoid a lot of the June heat. For those of you who have made that request, today is your lucky day. Rejoice, because instead of the usual 1st Saturday in June, the Texas Mercedes-Benz Owners GTG has been moved to Saturday, May 17, 2014!

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 dining room at Woody's will be reserved just for us. After lunch, we'll head down to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine. There will be reserved parking at Woody's and at Fort Boggy, and 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, feel free to do so.

Departure Points:
(If you are coming from a town not listed below, (ex: Beaumont, Tyler, etc...) 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.)
