Arrow Second Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together-Saturday, June 30th 2007

Calling all Texas Mercedes-Benz owners! It's that time of year again! On Saturday, June 30th, 2007, the second Texas Mercedes-Benz get together will be held in Centerville, TX. Caravans from Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin will converge on Centerville for an arrival time of 12pm. You need not be from Texas to attend. We had Mercedes-Benz owners from as far away as Mississippi attend last year. We will have a BBQ lunch at Woody's Smokehouse #2 located at the northbound side of I-45 and Highway 7. There is ample parking, and a private room has been reserved just for us. After we've had our fill of BBQ, we will head on over to beautiful Fort Boggy State park, about 4 miles south of Centerville on Highway 75. Admission for park entry is $2 for each person over the age of 13, children 12 and under are admitted free. The park features a small lake with a beach, picnic tables, restrooms, a pavillion, and a 2 mile long circular hike and bike trail through the East Texas Piney Woods. In the park, we will kick tires, and present our rides for viewing by other owners. We will then have a "Show and Shine", and awards will be given out after a vote is taken by attendees. Categories for awards will be "Best Vintage" (1979 and older), "Best 80's", "Best 90's", and "Best 00's". Last year, we had a great turnout, over 30 Mercedes-Benz models spanning 31 years were present in all conditions, from exotic SLs to utilitarian wagons. We're looking forward to seeing you there this year. Bring the family along, and don't forget to invite your other Mercedes-Benz owning friends and family members too!

Sounds like a good meeting spot for the Dallas contingent. Is that the same place as last year?

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?formtype=address&addtohistory=&address=&city=Hutchins&state=TX&zipcode=75141&country=US&geod iff=1

The Ft. Worth crowd will probably have a good idea on where to meet up. Maybe at the same spot. Would like to travel in a large group again. That was one of the most fun things about last year........

This was a great event last year, and H-Town does a great job of planning. Lunch at the same place as last year??????

Not many coupes represented last year ,time to roll up the sleeves on old Iron Horse ,found a horse shoe in the trunk so Im guessing it was luck I had found the car ,or luck for the seller ,Im not sure.That was good bar bee qu ,the smoke house was detected 2 miles away before the turn off,thats a popular establishment.Ive got family history up in those parts so I might do alittle sight seeing and pull out on the Hwy earlier that morning to get it in. I ve got this marked down on my calender as day off for a german holiday. Good Day

Hey, they've got a coin op carwash in Centerville, but it's tucked away off Hwy 7 somewhere. I don't even think I remember how to get to it anymore.

The one I found in town hadn't worked since the first Bush was in office. The other near park was for city vehicles (or as I was told).

I'm in! I can handle late June with no A/C in the car...late summer would have been a no-go for me though.

Looking forward to seeing you folks again (and meeting some new ones).

Ok, slight change of plans for the Austin caravan. You will assemble at the Dell Diamond at 8:30am, and leave for Centerville at 9:00am, I'd forgotten how long it takes to get from Round Rock to Centerville. At a later date, I'll post all the city departure locations and time again.
Attendees so far:
1. H-townbenzboy (HOU)
2. chasinthesun (HOU)
3. drewser3 (Dallas)
4. justinperkins (AUS)

I could probably do this. If I can fix the massive oil leak and the A/C in my 6.9 it will come along. Else it will have to be the 97 E420.

Most probably I'll be there.

Are there facilities to wash the car. After the long ride from North Dallas I'd like my car to be presentable .

I think there might be one there. Though it may be easier just for you to bring some microfiber towels and Meguiars Quik Detail Spray.

For you guys in the DFW area, a second caravan has been added in addition to the caravan departing the Carl's Jr. in Hutchins. The Ft. Worth and Dallas #2 caravans will be meeting up at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Waxahachie. So you guys in the Metroplex now have two choices.

Here's the new, updated list of caravans.

To get to the spot from I-35E, take the exit for Highway 287 east. From Highway 287, take the Highway 77 exit and stay on the feeder road. Go through the intersection at Highway 77 and make the right turn into the Wal-Mart lot. Make another right immediately after turning into the lot and you'll find yourself at the spot behind the IHOP and Wall Chinese Cafe.
Meet up at 10:00am, depart at 10:30am.
