    Iowa City, IA - 2-5 August 2012 - Saab Owners Convention

    They haven't announced dates yet, but the 2012 convention will be held in Iowa.

    Start your planning now!
    It is less than 1/2 the distance I drove to SOC09, so let's get a great turn out next year!

    August – summer fun, county fairs, and sweet corn...

    What better time to pack up your SAAB and join your fellow SAAB owners at the 2012 SAAB Owners Convention in the Heart of America at the Marriott Convention Center in Coralville/Iowa City, August 2-5, 2012! Located right off I-80, it’s an event you won’t want to miss!

    The event committee is hard at work planning this years event – SAAB is undergoing some changes right now, but this will be THE place for enthusiasts of all ages to gather with their SAABs.

    Friday night will be a big welcome to all attendees with an event following dinner that will be unlike any other SOC event in the past. Have your cameras and video equipment handy!

    There will be lots to do on Saturday – Take a drive and enjoy the flavors of the area or gather with friends to exchange your SAAB story! Tech sessions will be running through out the day – ranging from performance enhancement to SAAB history.

    But, save your energy, you’ll need it for the crowning event – The Awards Banquet!

    Registration will be open shortly, so be sure to check back or follow us on Facebook for updated event details.

    If you have questions regarding the event, wish to sponsor an activity, or would like to volunteer for the 2012 SOC, contact us and let us know!

    I am seriosly thinking about it. Especially since Antique Archealogy is an hour drive away.

    We'll be there - not sure when to when - but I'll be there with the wife and likely the convertible unless I get daring and take the 86' 9000 for a long haul or get another project moving along....

    Well with the new job I won't be able to take off for this - so thoseof you who are going have fun. Hopefully it's still a fairly good time. SOC has never been nearly as much fun as Saabs @ Carlisle.

    Any thoughts on setting up a SaabWorld booth to promote/generate support for the site? Maybe have a banner made/give away some of the window stickers?
