Instead of Sunday April 30th, it is now going to be Sunday May 7th, due to the weather forecast for this Sunday. So, the Minuteman Chapter of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America is moving the date for its spring drive along the coast of the North Shore of Massachusetts from Manchester by the Sea to Rockport MA with a lunch at Shea’s Riverview in Essex at the end to Sunday May 7th!

Now that the warm weather is here, I am hoping to see more Pagodas join the tour. Any of you planning to come, please signup at the MBCCA link.

.... at the MBCCA link.
You use MBCCA in two threads now.  It's MBCA.

You must have belonged to the BMWCCA for a while and can't get the extra C out of your system!   :D

Boston, Northshore – Cape Anne Drive – May 7

What an amazing day!

With absolutely perfect weather, members of the Minuteman Mercedes Benz Club, and many from the Pagoda Club, with their spouses, partners and friends, rallied with 28 cars to explore Cape Anne’s hidden coves, private beaches, magnificent ocean views along with glimpses of the secluded enclaves of several of the great ocean front estates of Boston’s north Shore. The tour ran along northshore coastal roads from Manchester-by-the-Sea, through Magnolia, passing by Hamond Castle, then through Gloucester and ending in Rockport.

The event had been coordinated by Ulysses DeGuzman and Roland Boucher. Roland and his wife had mapped out the route and led the way. Ulysses coordinated the event with the club and all the on-line posting and behind the scenes planning.

After our tour the group met for lunch at Shea’s Riverside Restaurant in Essex, MA. Over lunch members enjoyed the camaraderie and talked about the discovered areas they want to further explore. They had a great time with their Mercedes with good company and beautiful weather.
