SOC 2011: Who's all going?

Amazingly, with about a month to go, we don't have one of these threads started.

So, Bueller?

Bueller?

As a sales engineer in a year with rather crappy sales, we're at the end of our fiscal year. Taking time off is rather frowned upon right now. Chances of me going are somewhere between slim and none...

I can understand that. Is this year just completely minus buzz or what, too? Dunno.

Thoughts, anyone? It's right in my work-week backyard, more or less, so I'm debating what kind of time to take off.

I'm hoping to go. I'd like to see all of the beautiful saabs that I've been missing for the past 6 years.

I would like to go but if I did it would be day pass. I just can't put 2 "vacations" together in a 3 week period. Disappointed that the day pass doesn't include admission to the parts tent though.

Is it still going to be held in New Jersey?

If so, my 1991 SPG should be ready to go!

I haven't heard word one about this year's SOC. Had to do a google search just to find out where and when it even is. Like Ray, I might buzz down for the day.

I'll be in Bethlehem, PA for Musikfest the weekend before and then in Hershey for a few days, so my vacation time is spoken for.

Oof, Musikfest. Gotta remember to stay off of I-78 that weekend. It was a real mess last year.

Ric, sounds like you'll be out in our neck of the woods (Hershey, Bethlehem, etc.), if you want to stop by, drop me a PM.

i have a weird feeling not a ton of people are going this year.

i surprisingly have the weekend off, and could use to visit my parents...but that being said my car is ugly and i need new wheel adapters.

Yeah, at this point, I think I'll take a half day from work that Friday at most and screw the idea of getting a hotel room. With a wedding and a trip to the Midwest just a few weeks after, I think I'll just pop round to see the folks I know and call it good.

Me, too, although I can't imagine too much will be happening before noon that Saturday. And...if it stinks? I'll just ditch out and head over to the city.

I am only going because it's in my town. I am not spending a penny on anything Saab related and going only to see people and get a bite to eat and drink.

I'm going to pass this year. An eight hour drive in a 38 year old car doesn't appeal to me this year.
