Thirteenth Annual Texas MB Owners' GTG - Saturday, May 26, 2018

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 26, 2018 and meet me in Centerville for the Thirteenth 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. 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

May 21, 2018 Update

Woody's called me and let me know that they wouldn't be able to rent the private room to us after all being that it's Memorial Day weekend. Apparently, the employee taking the reservation for me a few weeks ago didn't know that they don't reserve the room on Memorial Day weekend. However, I've been doing this meet since before they even had the private room so that won't be an issue. We'll gather in the dining room on the side in the section where the sandwiches are made. That section is usually less populated than the main dining room and we can commandeer a section off to ourselves as we used to do before the dining room was built.
