Annual Picnic 2013

SUNDAY, JULY 7th 2013


Perfect weather for picnicking and once again, the host with the most, Red Kozinski offered his hospitable home in Scottsville with pool, beautiful lawns, wooded trails for all the FLMBCA members to enjoy. Everyone brought salads or desserts to share and the club supplied drinks, nibbles, grill foods, etc. and Red just happened to have two delicious beef briskets awaiting slicing on the wooden cutting board. Eight Mercedes (not all of us drove our Mercedes), of varying age and styles, lined up on the lawn for a “People’s Choice” car show.


A very difficult choice, too, as each was very special and we M-B members do get nostalgic when presented with perfection. Jim and Delsea Benz’s beautiful 1986 560SEL was declared the winner by an overwhelming vote and they took home a beribboned bottle of the Finger Lake’s fine Riesling.



Don Klug and Dave Kliment took photos for our website and for display at the November Annual Meeting. Other prize winners throughout the day included Don and Betsy Klug for traveling the farthest (from Watertown), Mort and Dottie Polsky for the longest membership (10 years) and Dan Young as the newest member (7 months). Dan was also awarded a gold MBCA pin as a “welcome new member” gift. As the grill cooled down we talked about Menzer Doud’s suggestion of an overnight trip to the Thousand Islands area in October. This would include The Riveredge Hotel in Alexandria Bay as headquarters, meals and sightseeing trips on the St. Lawrence River. More work needs to be done with the date (first or second weekend) and confirmation of amenities.


The idea was well received. Information will be posted on the website and Facebook as plans are firmed. There was lots of other conversation concerning the cars, “who do you know”, “where can I find” stuff, plus all the really important things we women discuss (sometimes even involving cars). The day wound down about 6:PM, we packed up our chairs and empty containers, divided up what little food there was left, tidied up Red’s patio and garage and headed for home after another memorable Annual Picnic.
