Let the Good Times Roll Out in Potomac Maryland

Mercedes-Benz Club Picnic & Concours Sunday August 22 2004

The GWS Annual Picnic and Mid-Atlantic Concours will be in North Potomac, Maryland, on Sunday, August 22. This is GWS's biggest event each and every year.

Your fellow M-B Enthusists will be in charge of the cooking - so you know the hamburgers and bratwurst will be great! No remarks, please! Remember, they're volunteers! And, of course, you can expect a repeat of the excellent work of our biermeisters and wine sommeliers, who will dispense the "gute Deutische bier und wein" to slake your thirst. We'll also have soft drinks and water on ice. And, there will be lots of watermelon. So be sure to bring a big bib or your raincoat. Bring your swimsuits so you can enjoy the pool. And, don't forget to bring blankets or chairs to stake out a great spot on the lawn.

The Concours d' Elegance has no entry fee. On the registration form, please fill out your car information so we can organize the classes. Please send in your registration form early.

We will hold a silent auction again for the benefit of The Hospital for Sick Children and Children's Hospital. In addition to items from both local and national merchants, we ask that you contribute a "treasure" (no white elephants, please) for the auction. Add something nice to the list of goodies! All items sell to the highest bidder. Please indicate your contribution on the centerfold registration form.

MBCA Anniversary pins will be presented to those section members who are celebrating five-year multiple - 5,10,15, 20, and so on - memberships. (See the following article for more.)

imes: Members with cars in the Concours should plan to arrive between 9:00 and 10:30AM. We will have a Clean Car/Display Class that is not judged - folks attending the picnic will vote for their favorites. Wash it up and bring it out!

The Street and Show Class cars are judged. Show Class cars will have their undercarriages judged. Judging begins at 11:00AM and awards will be presented at 3:30PM. Food "judging" begins at about 11:30AM. Beer, wine, and soft drinks will be served all day. The silent auction ends at 3:00PM.

From North or South take Beltway (I-495) exit 39 River Road (MD-190) toward Potomac for approximately 8.5 miles. Turn right on Trivilah for 2 miles, turn left on Split Creek - 12716 Split Creek is at end of street.

If you have any questions on Concours, call Bill Hopper 202-365-0672.

The cost is $20.00 per person at the gate is $20. Food will be served until 1:30PM or until it runs out.

The rain date is August 29... but as you know, it never rains at one of our events!
