Go to the top of the page where it says 'register'. Move the cursor over the word and then down to 'register online'...click and it should take you to the page. It just worked for me.

or:

http://www.saabnet.com/tsn/bb/SOC/index.html?bID=1600

If none of those work, try sending Ian Glenday an email.

Please show me how a perspective Saab owner who wants to go to the SOC can register using www.saabconvention.org

I think that function is broken since it autodirects to another website that does not have a registration link.
Clicking on the above link redirects to:

http://www.saabclub.com/soc08.html

The first thing on the page (other than the big SOC 08 banner) is
"REGISTRATION", caps & bold and a link to:

http://soc08.eventbrite.com/

Doesn't seem hidden to me.

Please look back, I updated my post as I noticed that someone has "updated" the Saab Club website to ALSO have a registration link, so I guess they fixed the problem now.

That's good.

P.S. I don't know why the SCNA has their "official" bb on a Saabnet forum. They should have their own, especially since half of the Northern Hemisphere is banned from Saabnet people tell me.

The real question is not why is SOC so expensive, but why is Carlisle so cheap? And the reason that Carlisle is so cheap is because all of you east coasters live so close and can get together on a campground relatively cheap. Plus the Central Penn Saab Club types are willing to put in an absurd amount of volunteer labor to organize things.

But the biggest factor is that Carlisle is part of a much bigger show than just Saabs -- Carlisle itself takes care of the location, logistics, etc.

SCNA has to reinvent the wheel, as it were, to duplicate much of what the Carlisle campground/car show infrastructure provides.

And SCNA needs revenue in order to do a separate Saab convention. And $170 (or so) for four meals may seem like a lot, but think of it as $70 for food and $100 for the convention. Which is more than Carlisle but not that much more, given that SCNA is not piggy backing off the Carlisle infrastructure to put on the event.

Plus once you accept the need for conference rooms to do seminars, video presentations, and the like, you're into an additional range of expenses that the Carlisle Saab event does not incur. (Although I was profoundly impressed with what CPSC did with the tents, generator, etc.)

These are different events with different economics. And I'm thrilled to be able to go to both of them this year.
Well said.

I'm glad we impressed someone.

It's an apples and oranges comparison. SOC is SCNA's convention. I doubt you can get into any convention without being a member of that organization. Carlisle's only requirement is that you have a Saab.

Next year should prove interesting as the "convention" might be a little far for us east coasters. My guess is Carlisle will be up, convention, down.

Saabs at Carlisle began in 1999 with 3 cars
2000 had 15 or 16.
My first [email protected] was 2001.

The only thing that's grown faster has been my bald spot.

OK.

Now that registration has closed. Does any one know when info will be released about day passes? My self and others are probably wondering the same thing.

EDIT: I just saw this

Mike, if I understand that correctly, that one price covers BOTH Friday and Saturday?

Update: Just got the word, a day pass sold on Friday will cover both Friday and Saturday.

Cool

Though something that I am not 100% clear about is if the holder of the day pass can enter their car into the field or whatever. Its not clear if I just park my car, and look, or if I am allowed show it off.

Since there seems to be so many questions re Day passes.. This from the President on that other board

A Day Pass will allow the bearer to: view all car displays and the Saab Heritage Collection, shop at the Saab Parts Hangar and all vendors; and, use the Dyno after paying the $75.00 fee. Use of the Dyno by someone with a Day Pass does not qualify for the Saab Dyno Challenge. A Day Pass user can enter into the Poker Run and Saab Test Drives.

A Day Pass DOES NOT provide any meals including lunches, Welcome Dinner or the Convention Banquet that includes the Awards Ceremonies. Access to seminars, tech sessions or roundtables is also NOT included. Participation in the Concours, Peoples’ Choice (including the Crisman Award) or Saab Dyno Challenge is NOT included.
