Hilton Head
South Carolina
As 2022 is fast approaching, the Bluegrass Stars finished out 2021 in style with our two last events.
In November, six of our members attended the "new and improved national event," the Mercedes Freude, The Joy of Everything Mercedes, November 2 - 5, at the Omni Hilton Oceanfront Resort, on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
The event was the kickoff of Legends Of The Autobahn East Coast, which was held on the Port Royal Golf Course, followed by the Hilton Head Island Concours d' Elegance, also held at Port Royal.
MBCABGS Treasurer, Fred Mudge and Ann Mudge attended the Technical/Educational Session on the TSD Road Rally and then participated in the event on Friday.
Vice President Anne Gilliland and Ann Mudge attended the presentation on Creating Excellent Club Presentations/How to take Photos for Publication presented by Jeff Zurschmeide, the Editor-in-Chief at The Star Magazine. This was an excellent presentation, and we both learned a lot for future event photography.
There were lots of other official events included; a trip to Savanah, Georgia, a tour of the Butterfield Plantation, as well as the casual evening get- togethers after the busy day's schedule to meet and exchange section news with our counterparts from all over the country.
Special thanks to Ken Hayes, who attended with his wife, Ann, for taking all the pictures we took ( both before and after Jeff Zurschmeide's outstanding session!) and creating a slide show that I hope we will be sharing at events for months to come!
Rick Seifert, MBCA's National Events Chair did an outstanding job with this national event, even in view of the unfortunate arrival of unseasonably cold, wet weather that hampered the Saturday events. It was an outstanding event, that I wish we could all have attended.
