NorthEast PA Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America
- Fri-Sun Mar 4-6 Amelia Island Concours D'Elegance, Fernandina Beach FL
This event is second only to Pebble Beach in California for collector car enthusiasts.
Mercedes-Benz helped launch this great event 27 years ago and remained the major sponsor until last year.
We will have 300+ MBCA members in attendance, so Alabama/NW Florida section hosts two of the events and is heavily involved in another.
Welcome Dinner at the Jacksonville Airport Doubletree Hotel
Based on this response will be either a buffet or order from the menu.
- Sat 5 Mar 9AM-1:30PM Cars & Community Replaces Cars and Coffee
In addition to classics there will be examples of the 80's-90's RADwood cars as well as a 'kids' area with slot cars and racing simulators.
Some of our cars will be included. This is usually a great time to recruit newer members. I can use some help with this.
I'm bringing Dodie's R107 SL. It is red with a Naples Yacht Club front tag and of course an Alabama rear tag.
- Sat 5 Mar 6PM Dinner at Doubletree
The number will determine whether we have a buffet or order form the menu.
Please let me know that you are planning on attending the Friday or Saturday night dinners. email@example.com
Note: we have a special rate of $134/ night or $154 for a suite at the Jacksonville airport Doubletree. Booking Link - Click here.

Request from Jim Roberts, DMD:
MBCA will be strongly represented in the Saturdays Cars and Community event. This is a great place to recruit new MBCA members.
We won't have a tent this year, but I got an invitation for my wife's signal red 380 SL that is totally original and perfect.
I will have some membership applications and a few copies of The Star for people who seem interested.
I could use some help with this so let's ask our members to look for the red R107 SL.
Amelia Island is less than a month away. We need to know how many to plan for as soon as possible.
Many thanks, Jim Roberts, DMD MBCA Director at Large
