Calling all Texas Mercedes-Benz owners! It's that time of year again! On Saturday, June 30th, 2007, the second Texas Mercedes-Benz get together will be held in Centerville, TX. Caravans from Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin will converge on Centerville for an arrival time of 12pm. You need not be from Texas to attend. We had Mercedes-Benz owners from as far away as Mississippi attend last year. We will have a BBQ lunch at Woody's Smokehouse #2 located at the northbound side of I-45 and Highway 7. There is ample parking, and a private room has been reserved just for us. After we've had our fill of BBQ, we will head on over to beautiful Fort Boggy State park, about 4 miles south of Centerville on Highway 75. Admission for park entry is $2 for each person over the age of 13, children 12 and under are admitted free. The park features a small lake with a beach, picnic tables, restrooms, a pavillion, and a 2 mile long circular hike and bike trail through the East Texas Piney Woods. In the park, we will kick tires, and present our rides for viewing by other owners. We will then have a "Show and Shine", and awards will be given out after a vote is taken by attendees. Categories for awards will be "Best Vintage" (1979 and older), "Best 80's", "Best 90's", and "Best 00's". Last year, we had a great turnout, over 30 Mercedes-Benz models spanning 31 years were present in all conditions, from exotic SLs to utilitarian wagons. We're looking forward to seeing you there this year. Bring the family along, and don't forget to invite your other Mercedes-Benz owning friends and family members too!
