President's Letter - July / August 2015

Reprinted from Nines Magazine

As I write this edition of the President's letter, word is coming from Sweden/UK that Saab racing icon and brand ambassador to many US conventions, Erik Carlsson, has left us.

It's bittersweet to share enthusiasm on the countdown to the Saab Owners' Convention 2015 (SOC15) in Lexington Kentucky, while thinking back on how many times Erik has made an appearance and delighted Convention goers for many of the past events. To that end, we will have a tribute to Erik at this year's SOC. We encourage all of our members and those that have met Erik and shared in his wit and charm to post their Erik moments on our Facebook page. We will also be collecting moments for the Convention web site.

Moving forward, registration is open at www.saabconvention.com, rooms at the Griffin Gate are filling up, but we did add 20 more rooms to our block for Wednesday and Thursday as of this writing. If you want to stay on property, don't delay!

In this month's edition of NINES you will find the ballot for the annual SCNA board elections (on page 25), to be conducted during the meeting at the Convention. Please take the time to fill it out and mail it in to make your vote count.

Daryle Powers
President, Saab Club of North America
