Banyan Mercedes Benz 2016 Road Cruise; More Than Just A Drive In The Countryside
Around 60 Mercedes Benz vehicles of various shapes, sizes and ages have just completed the Banyan Mercedes Benz 2016 Road Cruise to Hua Hin.
Banyan The Resort, Hua Hin represented by Sirirat Murphy, General Manager as the host and main sponsor in conjunction with the Mercedes Benz Club Thailand represented by Sayam Sethaputra, President. A side trip to the Mangrove Ecosystem Preservation & Science Education Centre (MEPSEC) Hua Hin also provided a significant contribution towards the restoration of mangrove growth by sponsoring a significant area of the project.
On a more festive note, the Gala Dinner, was a final night of celebration on the Banyan Resort grounds, giving the chance to indulge in fine cuisine and wine, entertainment and to revisit childhood with the theme of ‘Back To School Days’ The theme was embraced by many who had either retrieved their own school uniform from a dusty trunk or, at last in one case, wearing their own children’s clothing. When the band first appeared I somewhat foolishly wondered if a local high school band had been engaged. Gratefully this dress code didn’t detract from their very professional performance.
Amongst other great entertainers, we also had a dance performance reviving the musical moves from the movie ‘Grease’ with John Travolta and Olivier Newton-John ‘look alikes’ sending us back to college days. AC/DC guitarist Angus Young in his trademark stage persona as a schoolboy would have been in his element! This was the second Mercedes Benz Road Cruise which was seriously enjoyed by all Mercedes Benz lovers. A great event to celebrate the long tradition and heritage of this fine marque of motor vehicle as well as to benefit the Hua Hin community. The rest of us join Janis Joplin in lamenting ………………………
“Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz? My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends, So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?”
