Long Beach - South Bay

Long Beach - South Bay

The Section was formed in February 1983 to serve Mercedes enthusiasts in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, and has enjoyed its share of success and recognition. The Section recently won the “2010 MBCA Section of the Year Award”, and also had this same distinction in 2000. However, our Section realizes that these honors do not define us—our members do—over 100 strong. We have made great strides in tailoring our services and events to the desires of our people. We have added more “car” events to our calendar in addition to social and formal events, to the delight of our members. Our marquee event is our annual summer “Great Escape Rally”, where members embark on a fun and exciting adventure through historic and glamorous areas of Los Angeles—culminating at a luncheon where great prizes are awarded and a good time is had by all.

Our Board of Directors holds a monthly meeting of the first Monday of each month where officers and all members are invited to participate. We also strive with our upcoming calendar to have an exciting event or trip planned each month. We have visited Central California wine country, the Mercedes Benz Classic Center, and even the MB Learning and Performance Center. In addition to social and educational events, our Section supports local women’s and children’s charities throughout the year. In 2007, we were the first Section to propose and schedule “joint events” with other Sections within our region. In 2008, the San Diego Section hosted a 2-day joint event, followed by our very own Long Beach – South Bay Section hosting at Big Bear Lake in 2009, and in 2010 the Las Vegas Section did the honors. We hope this idea will catch on with other regions throughout the country.

Our overarching goal is to serve our current members with a variety of events during the year, and to encourage new Mercedes owners to join and participate in our activities. If you are new to the area, or are just considering joining the MBCA, please contact one of our officers or visit our website. We look forward to seeing you at our next exciting event!Visit us on facebook!
