President's Letter - January / February 2015

Reprinted from Nines Magazine

Winter has come early for many us and that means it is time to hibernate the project cars and the Convertibles until better weather emerges in the Spring. It’s also a great time to get together with fellow enthusiasts to plan local meets and get togethers, help a fellow SAABer out with a project they are working on, or make the list of parts to hunt for at the next meet.

Planning is now underway for SOC’15 in Lexington, KY August 13 – 16, 2015. The planning committee is working through the logistics for the event with an on-site meeting planned for the mid February. From there, menus and pricing will be defined and made available to Aaron Clow, our dedicated webmaster, who will build out the online registration page on the Convention website. We hope to target early April to begin accepting event registration.

But why wait to start your Convention planning? Now is a great time to book your room for SOC15 and get a jump start to your summer. Reservations for the Griffin Gate Marriott (host property) can now be made online!

As an alternative, you can call their toll-free line at 877-901-6632 and be sure to mention the SAAB Owners Convention to get the group rate.

Lastly, I’d like to extend a big thank you to Ria Levine, who stepped into the role of Club Secretary to fill the vacancy we had with the position.

PS: Follow the club on Facebook and SAABnet for more Convention details as they become available.
