On Saturday, 7/20/19 the MBCA, NTX Section hosted another one of its great members’ lunches.  This lunch was held at the Islamorada Fish Company inside Bass Pro Shops located in Garland, Texas on Lake Ray Hubbard Lake.  After a brief Saturday drive eastward in their MB’s, the 28 members who attended visited and shared stories about their MB experiences. Those attending then enjoyed a great lunch of Cajun catfish, chimichurri chicken, or a tournament burger – all chef’s specials.  After the orders were placed, a 50/50 raffle was held to benefit the section’s charities – The Samaritan Inn of McKinney and the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. A total of $103 was collected for the raffle, and the winner of 50% of this amount, $51, was Eric Van Der Velden. 

 

Following this, the President, Craig Halverson, invited Gene Jurick, National President of MBCA, to say a few words.  Gene told about the MBCA Raffle for a new car and how this raffle is developed, funded, and executed. This raffle is one of three areas that provide the revenue to run the MBCA.  Following Gene’s talk, Brett Jurick, Regional Director of the South-Central Region, also gave a brief report on the recently held Red River d’ Elegance Concours which was put on by the Oklahoma City Section and the North Texas Section.  Other sections in the region also gave their support to the show which was held on June 28-30, 2019, at the Marriott Hotel and Golf Club in Fort Worth. Overall, it was felt that this car show was successful and provided a lot of learning experiences for those working to bring it into existence.  Following Brett’s report on the car show, Craig requested certain members who were new in attendance to give their names, tell about their cars, and share information about why and how they selected a Mercedes Benz to drive.  Food was then served and enjoyed.  Once again, this event resulted in good food, great fun, and wonderful fellowship for all that came!!
