Arrow Fourth Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together-Saturday, June 27, 2009

The FOURTH Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together is coming soon! Caravans leaving from Austin, the DFW Metroplex, and Houston will once again converge upon the midway point between Houston and Dallas on I-45 known as Centerville on Saturday, June 27, 2009 for a day filled with automotive fun! Let's get as many cars and people as we can to come to the meet and show them how we do meets down here in Texas, . It doesn't matter what kind of Mercedes-Benz you have, old, new, pristine, ragged, diesel, gas, Sprinter or whatever, we want YOU to attend so that we can have a diverse cross-section of cars and enthusiasts to enjoy the day. Got family members, friends, or neighbors who drive Mercedes-Benzes? Tell them to come on out! Caravans departing from each city will depart at a time that gives them a 12:00 Noon arrival time in Centerville. We will have reserved parking and a BBQ lunch in a room reserved just for us at the world famous Woody's Smokehouse on the NORTHBOUND side of I-45. After everyone has eaten, we'll head 4 miles south of town on old Highway 75 to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine! Unlike previous years, there is no longer an admission cost for entry into the state park. (added 5/7/09) We will hand out awards based on People's Choice for best Vintage Model (Pre 1980), Best 1980s Model, Best 1990s Model, and best 2000-present Model. Bring the camera, PLENTY of water and some sunscreen to the park because it WILL be hot, not as hot as the July meets, but still hot. Come on and have some fun with fellow "BenzNuts".

This would be a realistic goal for me to bring Trigger, if it gets painted by then. Otherwise I'll just bring Ol' Turbo.

I'm in... I don't know if I will be with the Dallas or Austin group.

I'm looking forward to you and Coda coming back.



Did Coda have any work done since the last meet? I think I recall you saying something about having a new paintjob?

I'm looking forward to it, and already wondering what to bring this time? my other 6.9 has ice cold R134 A/C, or one of my 5.0 SLC's. No matter what I bring, this time, i'll make sure I bring a cooler and lots of water!

I want us all to have fun, but let me make it clear that I will not be held responsible for lost money, damaged or defective parts, potential harm, injury, or damage caused by parts acquired at the meet. PeachParts, BenzWorld, MBWorld, SLKWorld, MyMBOnline, MBCA, and any other discussion forums or organizations that have information posted or published about this event will also not be held responsible for lost money, damaged or defective parts, potential harm, injury, or damage caused by parts acquired at the meet.

Update!

This is one you'll all enjoy. Fort Boggy State Park no longer has admission fees. In other words, the PARK ENTRY IS FREE.
