Arrow Sixth Annual Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together-Saturday, June 11, 2011

Yep, we're having meet #6. Time flies, doesn't it?

The SIXTH Annual Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2011. Caravans of Mercedes-Benz autos leaving from Austin, the DFW Metroplex, Houston and San Antonio will once again meet at the midway point between Houston and Dallas on I-45 known as Centerville for a day filled with automotive fun! This is an event open to all Mercedes-Benz owners, regardless of the age or condition of their car, from garage queens to daily drivers to beaters. Owners from points beyond Texas are welcome to attend. We've had repeat attendees from Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Kansas participate in this get together. Smart and Sprinter owners are invited to attend, too. After all, they're just our brothers with different badging. Do you have family members, friends, or neighbors who drive Mercedes-Benzes and don't know about this event? Tell them to come on out! The caravans will depart at a time that will give them a 12:00 Noon arrival time in Centerville. You can check below for the departure time for the caravan nearest you. 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! Admission to Fort Boggy is FREE. 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. Bring the camera, water and some sunscreen to the park because it probably will be hot. Last June was a hotter than normal June, so here's hoping for a normal or cooler than normal June 2011! Come on out to Texas's Premier Mercedes-Benz Event and have some fun with fellow MB owners and fans. We're gonna have a good time!

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.)

The only Benz I have running and street legal is the SDL, Sybill - car of many personalities. She's a lot like Christine; laugh at her at your own risk.

See ya on the 11th.

My wife and I loved a Mercedes meet we attended in the San Francisco Bay Area several years ago and can't wait for this one. See you all there.

I'll be there, coming from Athens, Texas. Wish we could get a Caravan coming from the Tyler Longview area. If not 'Ava' my 77 240d will be cruising solo.

We will gladly represent North East Texas!

Hey Treeman, if you are interested in setting up a departure point from Tyler and seeing if any people show up, let me know.

Glad to hear it, Al

I'm a little bit "iffy" but still thinking I'll probably make it. This will be my second...
