It has been a long winter especially for us Long Islanders. Last fall we were hit by Sandy and this winter by a heavy snowstorm, that even closed the LIE, and a lot of cold weather. But spring is nearly here and one of our most exciting events is almost upon us, the annual member meeting. Like last year it will be held at Exotic Classics and there will be food and a chance to share stories with our fellow members. Members that are signed to 2015 will receive a gift from NYC-LI.
We have other exciting events coming up as well. In April, 20 lucky members will have a tour of Peter Neidershiem's collection of motorcycles and automobiles. He has such a large collection of BMW motorcycles, that BMW Corp borrows them from him. The most amazing part is that ALL of them run. The cost is $20 and that includes lunch. On June 8th there is the 50th June Jamboree which promises to be even more exciting than usual. As we get more details we will pass them along to you.
We are already working on our fall event, Legends of the Autobahn. We hope to have even more Mercedes Benz's than last year. This event is held in Old Westbury Gardens and there we will be joined by the Porsche Club, the BMW Club and other exotic cars as well.
If you see an event you are interested in come and join us. If there is an event that you think we should do, please let us know. We can always use an extra helping hand. Our officers and their spouses work very hard to put these events together.
Did you know that our newsletter and Star-Gazer editor, John Mc Auliffe, was honored and received the MBCA excellence award for communication! The award was presented to him by our new Regional Director Joe Grattan at out Christmas Party . He has also assisted other sections of the MBCA and the award was mentioned in the most recent issue of the STAR. He is an invaluable asset to our club and to MBCA. Congratulations and we wish you continued success.
I look forward to seeing you at the next event.
Enjoy your Mercedes Benz.

Explore Germany Two Ways with MBCA!
Since 2006, hundreds of MBCA Members have enjoyed personally-guided tours of Stuttgart, Germany through their membership with MBCA. These adventure-packed excursions - organized and chaperoned by past National President, Jim O'Sullivan - are consistently given two thumbs up for their hospitality, unparalleled sight-seeing destinations and overall value.
Members revel in behind-the-scenes tours of the Mercedes-Benz Museum; the Stuttgart Brand Center; the Classic Center; the Unterturkheim Test Track; the Daimler Memorial and other spectacular venues. By popular demand, two tours are slated again for 2013. Tentative dates are July 15-21, 2013 and again, September 23-29, 2013.
Space is limited. Please contact Jim O' Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 843.671.2079 for complete details.
