Twelfth Annual Texas MB Owners GTG - Saturday, May 13, 2017

I've been pretty busy these past few months and weeks, and I was starting to get messages asking if I'm having the Texas MB GTG this year. There's good news; we're still on for 2017! Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 13, 2017 and meet me in Centerville for the Twelfth Annual Texas MB Owners GTG!

You know how we do this event. We caravan in from our various cities for lunch at Woody's Smokehouse on the Northbound side of I-45 in the reserved dining room. Woody's will reserve parking for us in their large lot on top of the hill and just to the side of Woody's. After lunch, we'll head to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine. Please note that Fort Boggy has re-instated their admission cost since our last visit. Admission to the park is $3 for adults, free for children 12 years and younger.

We'll hand out awards at the Show and Shine based on People's Choice voting. The categories are Best Vintage Model (pre-1990 vehicles), Best Young Classic (1990-99), Best 2000-2009 Model, and, Best 2010-present Model.

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

Let me know if you're coming so I can let Fort Boggy know how many to expect. Reply to this thread and on this evite link: Invitations, Free eCards and Party Planning Ideas from Evite

Thanks everyone who attended yesterday. We had 17 cars total and the weather was absolutely perfect! I'm already looking forward to next year. Here are a few photos posted by Fort boggy State Park.
