New Member Party
2011 MBCA New Member Party

On Saturday, February 27 over thirty Central Ohio Section members attended the MBCA New Member Party, of which 6 were new members (plus their spouses). We even had a couple come up from Parkersburg, WV. The party was very fun, with everyone meeting the new members and catching up with old friends. Lots of laughter, hand shakes and hugs. The conversations were extremely varied, with people talking about families, the economy, the political upheaval in the Middle East, and hobbies such as flying, bicycling, picture framing, golfing, videography, and of course, Mercedes-Benz cars! Some business cards were even traded, so we can now add business networking to the list of Club membership benefits. The food everyone brought was delicious and appreciated by all, as there were little left-overs. The last guests departed around 11:00 PM, so it was a fully enjoyable evening. It was a great start to our events in 2011.

Pics forthcoming, once I shrink them down below 73 KB. (What's with this super small size limit?)
