Roll Call for SOC... who is going?

Hey all...

Thought it would be a good idea to see who is actually attending this years SOC.

I am coming over from Australia to attend again! It will be my third SOC (missed last year though in Detroit). In order to get there I will be travelling 17,000km (or 10,500 miles) and over 22 hours flying. I will be with RedAeroGirl and SilverAeroGuy, and Aireeca with their Saabs... but wish i could have either of my sleds with me! There is nothing worse going to an SOC without your Saabs!

Looking forward to sharing a good American beer or twelve in the car park with you all! Save me some Yeungling!

Look out for the bloke with the strange accent!

cheers from down under
Steve (sab)

We will be doing 24hours of driving to get there. Steven and I. Brought a shop person to talk business this year so I can play. Plus nobody else wanted to drive that far.

I'll be there with my wife and one of the 2 9Ks. If the body work doesn't get finished on mine, I'll either bring it for a hail damage display or bring the wife's car. Friday and Saturday. Day passes only this time I'm afraid.

I will be there. It's so much cheaper for me to fly from Louisville so I will not be bringing anything again this year. I'll be arriving sometime on Thursday. I am making a couple of stops along the way as well.

I'll be flying to SOC as well, albeit a 3 hour flight not 22! I haven't bought my tickets yet, though (bad me - but my wife has a free ticket on US Airways I'm going to try and use for this).

I'm leaving on Monday, I might fly in on Wednesday, and visit some dead relatives in New England graveyards before the convention. (Near Middlebury, Vermont or Wilton, Connecticut, are the two relevant locations).

I wish we were going. Too bad we can't make it.
Nobody cares but we have to attend a 25 wedding anniversary party for relatives on that weekend.

Hey roomie! I'll see you sometime Friday when I roll in from Canada with PaulH and Delorean.

I'll be at SOC in the best-loved base c900 ever. Little Redder.

I care, Bullseye, I just can't let Mrs. Bullseye find out, y'know? Turbo Dog and I will miss you.

Obviously, I will be there, as Steve pointed out. It's practically in our backyard (half hour away). And I will have my car this year, unlike last year. No fun being a passenger

Anyone coming into Boston on Wednesday, PM me.

Quoted from Saabnet's SOC BB

Quote:
Rumor Control here: There is no truth to the rumor that SOC08 convention registration is closed. Registration closes on August 15, 2008. Go to the link and get all the current information. Day Passes will be available again on site. The policy will be very similar to past years and will be announced after registration closes. There will be no meals or participation in Concours or People's Choice. I will be posting updates here as usual, thanks.
Ian Glenday, President, SCNA

...and i will be there of course.
