On an overcast and rainy looking day, twelve Mercedes and two rainy day vehicles brought 25 members from The Indy 500 section and guests from the Cincinnati section through numerous detours to West Park in Carmel for our 10th Annual Show And Shine. Everyone brought great dishes, desserts and drinks to share and cooks Kevin Williams and Roye Gaha barbequed up more than enough burgers, dogs and brats for all to enjoy. I believe a few raindrops fell on us during the course of the picnic but I don't believe they dampened our spirits and we all seemed to have a good time.

I thought one of the highlights of the day was seeing Richard Huntzinger's perfectly restored 1968 230. I swear, it looked like a new car, not one that was almost 50 years old.

We did conduct a little business during the picnic and 4 more members filled out our section survey. I will summarize what we learned from that survey in this newsletter. The new "Planning Committee" made up of members Barry McClelland, Katherine Benedict, Sara and me will be looking at the survey results to plan more events next year that we hope will be more in line with what our members want and will increase participation and enjoyment for all.
