mike saunders Damn....

I ended up spending what I would have paid for a conference pass on grills, charcoal and meat to feed 20-30 folks who didn't go to the banquet on Saturday night.

I think the alterna-food component of the convention should be every year.


So.....Swedish Car Day is Oct. 19. There's going to be a pre-meeting in late Sept....

I was there that nite, pretty good turn out. And not i didn't make it to SOC mainly because I was sick, but I couldn't justify paying the $50 either.

SRSLY....

Some counter-programming is in order....Maybe a grill fest on Sat afternoon/evening, then return to Devens for the tire-kicking that night....
Noooo, why?! Were you there last night, I was ripping past that place on my bike at about 10. Anyway, Saunders PM me for phone number because I know Mike d, Tom, and a few other people will be meeting up there later for said tire kicking. Convoy FTW!

zingZACH I agree that the price is ridiculous, but I am still going just to see some friends and such. I am getting much more than 3 hours out of it. I'll be there all day and night into Sunday.

I really wish they would allow us to show our cars (even if it isnt judged)... That to me is stupid.

If it wasnt so close, I wouldn't be doing it.

k1llsh0rty so are we gonna do a "dont want to pay high cost of SOC" meet in the area? just wondering because i will have to make adjustments to my schedule!

spgeebee88 i like this idea iam down with it. i just dont see the point of paying $50 to walk around. i see saabs every day and get payed to do it why should i pay $50 to look at them

Steve 97 9K Aero
$50 Just to Walk Around??

$50 wont allow you to park among the other Saab 9000s on display? If this is true, I might reconsider driving up, since I can only be there Saturday. 8 hours is a long drive just to pay $50 so I can walk around but it might be worth it to see Crowley's Aero again!
