2013 Amelia Island Concours (March 8-10)

Next weekend is the 2013 Amelia Island Concours de Eleganc at the Ritz in Amelia Island, Florida just north of Jacksonville. I searched for any previous post but didn't see any. Are there any forum members that are going to be there or does anyone know of any formal MBCA events occuring over the weekend?

I have been going to the concours as a spectator for over 10 years, this year we were not planning on going, but last night my wife said she thought she might like to try and go. While at this late a date getting accomodations on the Island is nearly impossible, we were able to get two nights at the Jax Airport Hampton Inn fairly inexpensively. There is also a Crown Plaza at this location and it is less than a half hour drive to the events on Amelia.

I am somewhat of an ameatur film maker and us this as an opportunity to film my other passion, which are great cars. I am hoping to do a new version of my Amelia Island special I did last year (link below). Would love to be a part of or participate in some special MB events if anyone knows of any...

So no MB world forum members are going? I see stuff for events like Nopi nationals, etc. But what about the other end of the spectrum?

MBCA wil be there as always. I have been going for the last 3 years but will not attend this year. The Peachtree Section has a dinner at the Crab shack on Saturday night. Food was lousy and late last year but they may go somewhere else this year. I would suggest going to the MBCA website Mercedes-Benz Club of America | and contact the Peach tree Section as to where they will meet. There was an article on the MBCA Linkedin forum about this event
Amelia is a great event
