It's time again to celebrate with other Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts at the GWS Summer Picnic, Mercedes-Benz Concours, and Flea Market. So bring your car stuff and sell it, swap or trade it! Bring your car: this is a judged show by MBCA rules, as well as an informal display of members' cars! We have been invited back to Steve and Barbara Newby's home in North Potomac, MD for this annual event which includes the GWS club store and Silent Auction.  Expect some excellent bargains, as we put sale prices on club store items!

The event will be held on Sunday, July 21, 2019

"Rain or Shine" from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Newby Estate

12716 Split Creek Ct, North Potomac, MD 20878

Advance registrations for this event help us determine how much food to order and how many cars to expect for the show. The advance registration cost per attendee (age 16 and over) is $20 – guests (and members) under 16 get in free with registered members. We will offer registration on-site at $25 for each person 16 and over.

As in years past, there will be fun and good food, this time catered by Big Mook's BBQ. Indeed, the bar will be open, as we provide great food and other goodies. Along with the food, we provide cold beverages (sodas, water, and beer) as well as a nice selection of wines. Do you want to see a terrific selection of fine Mercedes-Benz automobiles? Well, this is the event to attend!  Your garage a little overflowing with car stuff?  Bring it to sell, swap, or trade at the GWS Flea Market!

One focus at the picnic is raising funds for charitable donations. We do this three ways: a silent auction; a 50/50 raffle; and tips given for the services provided by our volunteer bartenders and cooks. We encourage everyone to contribute one or more items to the auction (no white elephants, please).

If you've reached a five-year multiple (5, 10, 20, etc.) anniversary as a club member, you can claim your (free) membership anniversary pin at the picnic.
