Tenth Annual Texas Mercedes-Benz Owners GTG - Saturday May 23, 2015
2015 will mark the Tenth Annual MB Owners GTG in Centerville. It's kind of hard to believe it's been going on this long. It seems like it just got started!

Since this will be the Tenth Annual MB Owners GTG, I'll be working to make this one more special than years past. I've got about six months to work on it!

For those of you who are new to this GTG, caravans leave from Houston, the DFW area, San Antonio, and the Austin area, and meet in Centerville at noon at Woody's Smokehouse just east of I-45 for a BBQ lunch. The private dining room at Woody's will be reserved for us, as will the parking lot on the side. There will be signs directing us. After lunch, we'll head down to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine. The pavilion at Fort Boggy will be reserved for our group. Admission to Fort Boggy is free. Show and Shine 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.

If you want to bring parts to sell or trade, please feel free to do so.

Mark your calendars now!

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.

Might be the coolest GTG May Saturday in your history. 85F or so, and bring your rain slickers.

I plan to attend. I will be coming from Little Elm, TX. Already washed the SD. Hopefully Gearhead, AKA Darrell will come along.

I will gladly take a cool, rainy day over what we had 2 years ago! It was HOT out!

My SD looks nothing like it did 2 years ago, so hopefully it will catch some eyes.

eatont9999 05-22-2015 09:16 PM

Oh, Al, I will drive faster this time! LOL

alabbasi 05-23-2015 08:10 AM

Good! I'll try to keep up :)
