Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 27, 2019 and meet me in Centerville for the Fourteenth Annual Texas MB Owners GTG!

 

We'll caravan in from our various cities for lunch at Woody's Smokehouse on the Northbound side of I-45 in the reserved dining room. Woody's will reserve parking for us in their large lot on top of the hill and just to the side of Woody's. After lunch, we'll head to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine.

Admission to the park is $3 for adults, free for children 12 years and younger.

 

NEW for 2019

You'll have the option to pay admission to the park in advance on Texas Parks and Wildlife's new reservation system. However you can't reserve a day pass online any earlier than a month before the day you want to go, and you will need to create an account to do so. So, if you want to pay admission in advance after March 27th, head to Texas Parks and Wildlife's website, create an account if you haven't done so and pay for your day pass in advance. Or pay the old school way in person if you wish.

We'll hand out awards at the Show and Shine based on People's Choice voting. The categories are Best Vintage Model (pre-1990 vehicles), Best Young Classic (1990-99), Best 2000-2009 Model, and, Best 2010-present Model.

 

If you want to bring parts to sell or trade, please feel free to do so.

 

Let me know if you're coming so I can let Fort Boggy know how many to expect.
