Northeast AMG Gathering

None of you know me but I am a member at MBW0r1d...We are planning a northeast AMG meet. Currently we have about 25 people interested in attending all from as far south as West Virginia and as far north as NH. About 23 of them are AMG owners, and the other 2 are mercedes owners.

Plans as of now are to have the event in NJ columbus day weekend in October(8, 9, 10). On saturday there will be no events but mainly for people to discuss mods, experiences, and even a low key photoshoot. We are in the process of organizing a dinner on saturday night with an AMG representative. Sunday we will have a Dyno shoot out at Turbo Trix and a track day at the Englishtown Drag strip/roadcourse.

This is open to all MB owners to come and enjoy the fun!!!

RE: Northeast AMG Gathering

I'm curious: why are you calling it an AMG meet, if everyone is invited? If it's for everyone, it should not be called an AMG meet, and if it is called an AMG meet, then non-AMGs should not be allowed.

As it is, all you're doing is pissing off non-AMG owners, or at least making them feel like red-headed stepchildren, which is evident by the #s of non-AMGs that you're getting, IMHO.

Just some constructive criticism from someone who's organized a couple of MB meets. Good luck with the meet. [:)]

RE: Northeast AMG Gathering

It is being called an AMG meet because it is... We are planning to have an AMG representative on hand for the weekend once plans are finalized. I was asked by a few non AMG owners if they could attend and participate and since its tough enough as it is to get a big group of benz guys or gals together, I am not turning anyone away. No need to get angry about it. This will be a fun weekend to be had by all. If you took some offense to this, there was not any intended

RE: Northeast AMG Gathering

This is set for columbus day weekend in Montevale New Jersey. Mercedes Benz USA has opened there doors to us and is helping us with preperations. We will be meeting at Mercedes Benz US headquarters on Saturday the 8th. They will provide an AMG representative and also a tour of the facility. Depending on the number of cars attending the event different events will be scheduled by MBUSA.

A track day is in the works at Englishtown's Raceway Park On Sunday the 9th. It is a VW day there that day and I am in talks with the facility manager about letting us join in with them as the facility is closed that day to the public. I look forward to hearing back from them for this. If this falls through we will put together a cruise and a photoshoot.

***MEDIA COVERAGE***
I have contacted two photographers in the New York area who will shoot the event for us. I am currently in contact with some national magazines for event coverage. I am also looking for someone to document the event on video for everyone.

I have also contacted several companies and have been told that they will provide discounts to those people who attend the event.

I will start editing the lists so we can get people to this
