I'd try to make an OH gtg, but cant make any promises. I've seen a couple other cincinnatians on here... A couple cinti/KY'ans over on the mbdiesel mailling list (mbz.org) also.

Ohio Meet

Yep, I'd be up for it. We will just have to see who would all come, from what areas, decide on a location, and pick a weekend and do it.

Hope this ok

This is an MBCA event, but it is in Ohio, and I know there will be MB diesels there.
If you just want to come and look it is FREE...........
For MBCA members to register is $90.00 + extra to show a car.

I may even be there.
Have a great day.

Dear Mercedes-Benz Enthusiast,

The Western Reserve Section(NE Ohio) of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America is hosting MBCA's premiere national event, Starfest, July 31- Aug. 4, 2004, in Mansfield, Ohio, home of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Sunday, Aug. 1, Concours d' Elegance, Monday thru Wednesday, track events such as defensive driving, autocross, and time trials will be held at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Monday evening, acceleration runs will be held at Dragway 42.

Other events during the week include a welcome reception, tech seminars, and seminars for the ladies, tours, rallies, banquets and camaraderie with other Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts from all over the United States and Canada.

It would be especially nice to see a large showing of ML's and G wagons at MBCA's Starfest 2004. Imagine a fleet of ML's and G wagons in varying colors on the green lawn of the Concours d' Elegance or lined up together at the dragstrip.

We would like to show to all that as varied as our choices in Mercedes-Benz automobiles are; their owners can still enjoy the enthusiasm and camaraderie that has always been a part of Mercedes-Benz ownership.

For registration packet, contact John Morrison, gobenzing@aol.com,
330-673-7885, 7783 Diagonal Rd., Kent, Ohio 44240.

Sincerely,

Frank Cozza
Great Lakes Regional Director
National Events Chairman

Stupid question, what separate seminars do they have planned for the ladies? Why wouldn't the ladies who attend want to just go to the normal seminars?

Wow, if we weren't moving during that time I'd probably try to go.

still not sure if I'll be there

Starfest web page, part of mbca

It look like just a large number of MB's converging on one place. Concours, autocrosses, driving classes, seminars...

If it is free just to go and hang out, I'll try to be there (not sure who to ask), but if you gotta pay just to walk around, then my money/time is better spend wrenching on my motorcycle. No offense guys.

Any one out there know the cost (to non mbca members) or know who I should email to ask ?

-John
