SCNA proudly announces that we have secured The Lodge at Deadwood (Deadwood, SD) as the banquet hotel for SOC2022! A block of 70 rooms is available for July 21-23. (Handicap accessible rooms available, and pets ARE allowed.) The Friday Welcome Dinner and Saturday Awards Banquet will be held at The Lodge — all other SOC events and meals will be held at the Saab Heritage Car Museum (Sturgis) or other locations to be announced.
To secure a room reservation at the reduced rate of $199/night, you must call The Lodge directly: +1 877-393-5634 or +1 605-584-4800 and indicate you are with the Saab Owners Convention 2022. The reduced rate will NOT be available via their website. Should you have any questions, please reach out to SCNA at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!
SAAB OWNERS CONVENTION 2022
As you read this, you may already be attending SOC 2021, once again in Albany NY, our 38th Convention! We move around the continent from year to year – far and fast is the rule – to try to be fairly close to everyone at some point: 2016 in Georgia, 2017 in Southern California, 2018 in Maryland, 2019 in Colorado, (we won’t talk about 2020), and 2021 back in the Northeast, where most of the Saabs live.
One of the perennial questions at the awards banquet on Saturday night is, “Where is next year’s Convention?” Everyone needs to plan and a few try to lock in hotel reservations a year in advance. We try to announce at least a region by then, if not an exact venue and dates under contract, but this year we are fortunate to have both:
SOC 2022 will be a joint event with the Saab Heritage Car Museum USA in Sturgis, South Dakota, July 21 or 22 to 23 or 24, 2022. The event theme is not yet final, but 2022 is Saab’s 75th anniversary. The exact location of all the Convention events is still undecided, so watch this space. See saabconvention.com for more, and join the Saab Club of North America at saabclub.com/join and sign up for our mailing list to get updates.
We expect a large contingent from overseas in 2022: this is high season and the Black Hills region has so much to offer, everyone could easily plan a whole week around this. Come and enjoy driving your Saab in some of the most beautiful scenery around.
