Ok, I've been in contact with some attendees, and now we have departure points for the DFW area and Austin area as of now.

DFW: You all will be meeting up at the Carl's Jr on I-45 in Hutchins, TX. It's at 2500 S. I-45 Service Road. Hutchins, TX 75141. It's exit 272 going southbound on I-45. They say you can't miss it. The caravan to Centerville will be leaving at 12:30PM in order to make it to Centerville at 2PM, they're meeting up about 15-20 mins ahead of time.

Austin: You'll be meeting up at the Dell Diamond at 10:30AM, and departing for Centerville at 11:00AM.

Houston: We still have yet to decide.

Small change of plans for the DFWers, instead of meeting 15-20 mins ahead of time, it's been streched to 30 mins. So, the plans are to meet up at Carl's Jr. at 12:00PM, leave out at 12:30PM, arrive in Centerville at 2PM give or take.

Sounds like fun. I'll be there if it does not conflict with any shows I'm going to.

Ok Houston, we have a meeting place.

We'll be meeting at the Cracker Barrel at 14765 North Freeway. Houston, TX 77090. Take the Airtex exit (exit 63) from either direction to get there. We plan to meet up at 12:00PM, and depart for Centerville at 12:30PM. If you would like to have a late breakfast or early lunch while you're there, you're welcome to arrive earlier than 12:00PM, but just be ready to leave at 12:30PM.

This is from DJ de Jesus from the Fort Worth chapter of MBCA.

Quote:
It will be easier for some Fort Worth folks to head down 287 and then I-45 to Centerville rather than than to go east to Dallas and then South on I-45. So we set up another meeting place.
At 12 noon, we will meet at the Starbucks inside the Barnes & Noble Bookstore at 1612 South University Drive, Fort Worth, 76107. From I-30, exit University Drive and head south. Enter the University Village shopping center on the right side of University Drive after the Conoco gas station. The caravan will leave for Centerville at 12:30pm. Arrive earlier if you wish to have a late breakfast or early lunch. There are many restaurants in the University Village shopping center.
So take note of that. At a later date, I will post all the locations the caravans will be leaving from in their cities.

Since we're having so many responses from cities other than Houston and Dallas/Ft.Worth on the other forums, we can just call this a Texas MB meet instead of a Houston/DFW MB meet. Everybody's welcome, no matter what city you're from.

Right now, we don't have any San Antonio departure points because you're the first person from San Antonio who's made their intentions to come to the meet known. So, if we have any others, ya'll can setup a departure point and all that good stuff, or if nobody else from San Antonio chimes in, if you want, you can go with the Austin guys leaving from the Dell Diamond in Round Rock since you'll need to take I-35 North to U.S. 79 to get to Centerville from San Antone anyway.

Count me in!

Do you have a rough count of people coming?
Can Woody's Smokehouse accom all of us?
Parking, food, etc.

This is sounding like it is going to be BIG!

Maybe local Mercedes dealers will donate items to be given away?

Looking forward to a day of fun!
