    Michigan - Fall 2010 event - color tour

    I am interested in a Fall event, something along the lines of our annual color tour, but multiple attempts to email Ron at Trio Motors in Burton (to see the new 9-5 first) have been unsuccessful. We have met there many times in the past and I was hoping to do so again. Is there enough interest for me to pursue this yet? Typically we meet in mid-October, but weather forecasts predict a warm Fall, so perhaps late Oct would be OK to still see some color, have dinner, see the 9-5 (??) and whatever else.

    I am game, You should also post on Saab Central, there are some fellas on there that would love to do this as well. Maybe I should call Trio and ask them if they have a new 9-5? Does Fox Saab have a new 9-5 ?

    Thanks-
    BT.

    Jim, you know I'm always up for an event. Someone set the date. Hopefully before the 96 goes to sleep for the winter.

    [FONT=Century Gothic]Jim, I just got my first peek at the new 9-5 at Fox Saab in GR. I talked to their sales Mgr Joel Hugen about having the group out to check out the car. He sounded excited about the idea and also said they may be able to help with a rally or some kind of sponsorship for the meet. He said to go ahead and get ahold of him if you'd like. 616-855-3806 / jhugen@foxmotors.com[/FONT]

    Yes, I do, but SE MI gets us the best turnouts, and Trio is a great place to meet. Repeated attempts to make contact over the past couple of months have been unsuccessful however. So... since I have some Halloween commitments, is early Nov too late? And does anyone have an idea on "where"? I guess we "could" invade Trio on a Sat AM, as they appear to be open until noon anyway, and then go to lunch/dinner, or a short color (or limb) tour? Anyone have any other ideas or fun drives? Winery? Apple orchard? I am interested but my efforts so far have not worked, and my time to plan has been a bit limited in September, due to work commitments. Anyone on here near Trio where they could stop in?

    I have about 125 on my email list, so if we can get something together soon, I will publicize there and via Facebook.
