All Day Event
As many of you know, one of the highlights of our event schedule, and an annual rite of Spring for German car fans, is the Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance. This year will represent the 27th time that we have gathered with our friends from the Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA) and the Potomac Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for this terrific show. This year, we have reserved Nottoway Park, located at 9601 Courthouse Road in Vienna, easily reached via Route 66. The park entrance will be marked with large car club banners so that you cannot miss it.

In the Deutsche Marque Concours, vehicles are judged by their condition, appearance, and cleanliness. There will be three classes at this event - Street (judged), Meister class (judged - for previous category winners), and Anfänger class (not judged - for newcomers to the concours experience; selected by people's choice balloting). Judges scoring cars in the Street and Meister classes will only judge the tops of the cars, including the exterior, interior, engine bay, storage compartments and chrome, but not the chassis. Street class cars are generally divided into several groups based upon NCC rules. While Anfänger class cars will not be formally judged, these cars will be eligible to win the "People's Choice" award, and this is a terrific way for newcomers to become acclimated to a concours event.

Vehicles will be classified into the following categories:
2002s
Classics
Modern 80s
Modern 90s
Current
Meister
Anfänger

The entry fee for the concours is $25 per car ($40 after April 25th or on-site). Registration includes one wine and cheese reception ticket and a commemorative dash plaque for the first 40 registrants. Additional wine and cheese reception tickets are available at $10 each. There is no charge to attend the concours as a spectator. In order to allow us to plan appropriately for the number of guests, please register in advance and use the registration form that may be accessed from the NCC website at a later date.

Contact John McWilliams at john.mcwilliams@gmail.com if you have any questions.

As in past years, we would greatly appreciate any assistance on the day of the event, especially with judging. You can learn more about the judging process by attending the Concours Judging School to be held on April 10 in Baltimore, sponsored by the local Mercedes-Benz club section. http://forum.nccbmwcca.org/showthread.php?t=5918

Event Schedule:
8:30 AM Field opens to show participants for placement onto the field.
9:00 AM General admission begins.
10:00 AM All cars whose owners wish them to be judged must be registered, and cars placed on the field. If you would like to be judged, PLEASE have your car on the field by 10:00 AM. We do our best to judge everyone consistently and fairly and can do this best if we have sufficient time.
10:30 AM Judging begins.
2:30 - 3:00 PM After the judging is completed, scores are tallied, and winners determined, we will announce winners at the wine and cheese reception.
3:00 PM Wine and Cheese Reception - Awards for all clubs will be presented at the Wine and Cheese Reception.

Note:
The concours is an all-day event. The organizers of all the clubs will be working diligently prior to the show as well as on the day of the event. Please also respect the hard work by the participants who have prepared their cars for the show. If you enter the event, please be prepared to stay through the awards presentation. If your vehicle places in its class and you have departed the field, the award will be given to the next runner-up in class. Further, in order to be fair to all the participants, we need to have sufficient time to judge all the cars consistently and fairly. We can't do that if people show up at 11:30 a.m. and ask to have their cars judged. We're not trying to be difficult, only respecting the efforts many of our club members make to prepare their cars for the concours. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Here's my pics from yesterday. I had to leave around 10:30a to get to the CP meet, so I tried to capture as many cars as I could while I was there. I'm sure I missed a bunch of nice ones.
