This year our June Jamboree will be held at The Hermitage / A National Historic Landmark. The Hermitage is located at 335 North Franklin Turnpike, Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ 07423. More information can be found at https://thehermitage.org/

This year’s event will take place on the lovely grounds of the Hermitage. Cars will be displayed on grass under trees throughout the park.

The pre-registration cost to enter a car is $55 and this fee includes lunch for the driver: additional guests lunches only $20 under 12 free no lunch.

Lunch, given the layout of The Hermitage, we have arranged to have 2 delicious food truck providers at the event. Each registered guest will have a ticket that will be redeemed for a meal & drink. Tables and chairs will be scattered throughout the grounds.

REGISTRATIONS made the day of the event the registration fee is $10 more per car and $10 more per lunch. So please register by June 15th! Day of Registrations are cash or check only. You may attend the Jamboree without a car, The Hermitage does have a suggested entry fee of $10.00 Per Person.

Registration will begin at 8:30 AM AND WILL END AT 9:45AM. ALL CARS MUST BE ON THE FIELD BY 9:45AM You will need to pull your car up the driveway and to the Registration Table in order to receive your registration packet and be given your assigned parking spot. Please place your window sign on your window along with your scoresheet if you are participating in the concours. If you do not want anyone touching your vehicle without you being there, you must remain with your car during the judging time. Judging will begin at 9:45AM and at that time, there will be no further detailing of the cars allowed. AFTER 9:45 NO CONCOURS CARS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE FIELD FOR JUDGING. In your registration packet there will be color coded votes for the Popular Vote cars – please match the color of the vote to the color of the window sign – votes not matching the correct color will be discarded. All popular votes begin with a letter followed by a number.

The cars will be broken down into two categories – Concours (judged by a team of judges according to MBCA guidelines) and Popular (voted on by those in attendance).

The cars in Concours class are then further broken down according to chassis. Concours cars need to be detailed and will be judged in four categories:

1 – Interior, Upholstery, Trunk; 2 – Glass, Lights, Rubber, Chrome, Trim; 3 – Engine Compartment; 4 – Paint, Coachwork; and points are also given for mileage and age.

There is a mandatory 2-point deduction if your car is trailered to the event.

Popular Vote cars are divided into two categories (Sedan and Sport) and then further broken down by years – New – 2018 to present; Modern – 2008 – 2017; Old – 1998 – 2007; Vintage I – 1997 – 1972 (Cars 25 -49 years old); and Vintage II - Pre 1972 (Cars 50 years old and older). My advice for the Popular Vote cars is to “Give the baby a bath” and come enjoy a good time with fellow Benz enthusiasts.

Cars over 25 years old are also eligible for the Silver Star Preservation certificate – you can be in either Popular or Concours and have your car judged for this certificate.

Weather – Given that this year’s event will be on grass, let’s all hope for a dry day (Rain date June 23rd). Looking forward to seeing many of you at this year’s event. If anyone is interested in helping to judge or to help in other ways, please email Greg at: MBNNJS@Yahoo.com with the subject line: willing to help at the June Jamboree. Thank you.

***Please note – pre-registration makes everything run more smoothly and efficiently. Day of Registration causes delays to those who have pre-registered since they have to wait to pick up their packet while the day of registration car is being assigned to a category and a parking space. Please – Pre-register!!
