    SAAB Convoy to SOC August 14, 2015 in honor of Erik Carlsson.

    SAAB Convoy to SOC August 14, 2015 in honor of Erik Carlsson.

    It is now official, we are putting together another SAAB Convoy. This time the destination is the SAAB Owners Convention 2015, in Lexington, KY. I would like to pay tribute to Erik Carlsson with this convoy. He did SO much for our marque brand: SAAB, we should step up, band together and show our gratitude.

    Based on a few inquiries, we have setup the following locations as meetup spots:

    1st meetup - Richmond, Va
    2nd meetup - Charlottesville, Va
    3rd meetup - Staunton, Va
    4th meetup - Charleston, WV

    The actual planned routes and times will follow.

    The goal is to arrive at the Griffin(love the name) Gate Marriott Resort and Spa, a few hours before dark to sign in.

    We only have about 10 weeks left to plan and organize. All ideas and suggestions are welcome. To get the ball rolling, I suggest we affix either a magnetic or window sticker rally number(one of the numbers Mr. Carlsson used) to our cars, in a show of support.

    All are invited to participate. If you are planning on attending SOC '15, if you are available to leave on Friday August 14th and you are along or close to the proposed route, chime in on this thread.

    Hopefully, we can put together a really nice SAAB Convoy, in support of Mr. SAAB and our beloved SAAB brand.

    We (DeLorean, Tweek and myself Burnsside) will be leaving the VA area on Thursday morning to head to SOC. 2 unknown Saab's will likely blow past your convoy smiling.
