Despite cloudy skies and the threat of rain we had a fantastic turnout of members for this Section event; with a total of 110 members and guest attendees. The rain held off until after the food was served and all of the members’ votes were in for their favorite Mercedes.


Trophies were awarded, as follows: 

1st place went to Ed & Tina Knoll for their 1957 300SL                             

2nd place to Randy & Sharon Hawkins for their 1989 Euro 500 SEL

3rd place to John & Barbara Hammond for their 2016 SL550  


Door Prizes were awarded to Joe Walsh, Wendy Green, Pam Hass, Karen Keller, Reid Vann, Randy Hawkins, Donna Anderson and John Springborn.


Also in attendance, we welcomed Peter Duryea and Lori Plescia with their 1985 380SL.  He and Lori have recently moved to St Louis from the Eastern Nebraska Section.


A tremendous “Thank You” is extended to Rick Siefert and Alan Barker for hosting this event and to all the member helpers participating in check-in and clean up.
