Thread: Saabscene meet

    Saabscene meet

    Hi all,

    I am thining it would be nice if we arranged a meet for all Saabscene members just wondering if anyone would be interested in this prior to making the arrangements?

    This is an event that I wish to attend and if we had some numbers quickly we could maybe have a stand area dedicated to Saabs - http://www.waxstock.com/index.html

    I know this is a bit short notice to arrange something like this but we can always choose another event to arrange the meet at but this is more to gauge the number of members who would be willing to meet up.

    Re: Saabscene meet

    would love to have the time go to something like this (i think my wife's cousin goes to detailing events and has won several comps in his golf gti over the years)

    maybe in a year or two though....

    i went to the donny south show a couple of times at north weald. saw lots of bits and found some inspiration for a few mods on my impreza and if it were still on, i would probably try to get there as it's closer to me than p'borough. wouild be interested to know what you think of the show if you go though deano

    Re: Saabscene meet

    Dont think there's enough members for a meet but I would be up for doing it IF you can get enough members interested. Not knocking the forum but I think 'cos our Saab's are end of line not many people buying them so not much life on the forum - Lexus & 350z owner meets were amazing - 50 zeds to Bala, cant imagine seeing 50 Saab's meet up...

    If we can get enough people to confirm an interest I can look to make some arrangements at another event.

    Yes, I suppose I would be just as welcome in a Saab-powered Vauxhall as all those Fiat-powered Saabs that might turn up...lol

    Not enough members? I think the Z register is not as big, and the TVR forums. Im sure they stopped making them a while ago. I think it is more of a sports/classic car thing with those forums/owners. However, the BMW UK meets are quite small, and they are 95% saloon cars. They were at Duxford this weekend.

    I think the choice of venue is critical. Duxford/Chatsworth/Beaulieu/Donnington etc.

    unfortunately this site isn't as vibrant as it used to be - there are other sites (uksaabs and saab tech-talk) where many of the old guard have migrated to...

    Meets were a regular feature and very-well attended....

    Dont disagree - I think it's down to "enthusiasm" I used to have a 350z - dont see many of them on the road do you? But you can guarantee 50-60 of them meet twice a year.

    I'm going on post response - many times I've posted a question - with nada response.

    I'm happy to meet up but there's got to be 10+ others involved cant see the point 2-3 of us meeting up - might as well do it on Skype!

    Somebody ask a Mod to post a sticky and let's see what happens - trouble is were running out of summer days now....

    Now a sticky thread,

    I am pretty sure we can get enough people just need them to post on this thread to confirm.

    We need to invite them to something - what about a driveout one Sunday somewhere that's got nice roads and a decent pub for lunch? Most people arent bothered about going to a show it doesnt interest them - it's all about driving

    I iive in the North Wales and there are some great rounds towards Bala - we have the Evo (Magazine) triangle - some great places to stop for food as well. We just need numbers to get the ball rolling...but I'm open to suggestions to meet Midlands way...
