Talking Deutsche Marque Concours

21st Annual Deutsche Marque Concours

Sunday, May 2, 2004
TPC at Avenel - Potomac, MD

Spring, has sprung, and that means we are now in the season to show off our old and new "classic" Benzes. To regular Concours participants, that means it's time to pull off that car cover, clean, wax, Q-tip, and bring your garage queen(s) out! To our newcomers, clean your "baby" up, come out and enjoy the good weather (that has been ordered), the wonderful sights of Deutsche Marque vehicles, and, most importantly, meet other fellow car enthusiasts in our club.

Following the Deutsche Marque Concours tradition, this will be a "top only" concours that is cosponsored with our fellow Deutsche Marque car clubs - the Potomac Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA), the National Capital Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America (BMWCCA), and, for the first time, the Potomac-Chesapeake Chapter of the Audi Club of North America (ACNA).

A Concours is a clean-car contest and car show. Vehicles are judged by their condition, appearance, and cleanliness. This event will offer two classes; Show (judged) and Display (a people's choice vote). In the strictest sense it is not really a "Show" class as it is a "top-only" event. "Top-only" is where the exterior, interior (including engine bay), and luggage compartment are judged. The undercarriage is not. The Display class is one where the general public/participants vote to determine the winner or winners.

Depending on participation, the Show class will be separated into several groups based on our national rules.

Event Schedule:
8:30AM Grounds open to show participants for placement onto the field.
9:00AM General admission to the public begins.
10:30AM Judging begins. Cars not in place and on the field by 11:00am will not be allowed to show.
3:00pm Scores are tallied.
3:30pm Wine and Cheese Reception

All Awards for all clubs will be presented at the Wine and Cheese Reception.

This will be our first time at Avenel. Avenel staff will have coffee, breakfast snacks, lunch, and beverages for sale during the day.

The entry fee is $30 per car. Registration includes one Wine and Cheese Reception ticket. Additional Wine and Cheese Reception tickets are available at $10 each. There is no charge to attend the Concours as a spectator. See the form in the centerfold.

Please note: This Concours is an all day event. If you enter a car, please be prepared to stay through the awards presentation. If your vehicle places in its class and you and the vehicle have departed, the award will be given to the next runner-up. Additionally, please be mindful that cars not registered for the Concours should not be parked in the show field.
