i dont know its sposta be 3 hour drive for me.... i would really like to goto class honestly hahaha my class is 11 to 1240, but maybe if i get ahead i wolnt be so concerned. if i leave at 9 ill get there by 12 maybe ill just leave at 830, i just need to make sure alex and matt are there so i can exchange parts and money. i dont think i want to stay past 2 or 3ish because getting back into dc around 5 or 6 weekend traffic would really pick up.

I am interested - however there will be another "Saabtoberfest" style meet happening on that Sunday I am attending. It will be using and following much of the former glory Saabtoberfests of the past too.

I wish I could join you guys but we are heading to OCMD this afternoon for the Endless Summer Cruise and not sure if we are leaving to come home on Saturday or Sunday. If we decide to head out early on Saturday I will text you Matt1488. The better half wants to stop at IKEA and i'd like to go to the Reading Terminal Market on the way home so we will be in the area, just not sure when exactly....

My schedule is just so ridiculously full...... :(

yea, had a great time yesterday.

we should definitely make this a repetitive thing. I'm up for whenever, being that I'm "close" to KOP, so whatever works best for the guys that need to travel and have a clear schedule.

where should i throw these pics at? this thread or make a new one and if so, in what section?

nice to see this taking off again. so far late march early april seems like a good time to choose, it will be warm enough and give everyone time to call off from work.

id be up for later january, but weather is no so predictable around then, especially for the guys that will be traveling to get there.


Weekends that are available:
March 17-18 (17th St. Patricks Day)
March 24-25
March 31- April 1
April 7-8 (Easter Weekend)

bumping this back up.

now that "we are saab" has passed and we saw awesome numbers for the S/SE PA crowded, i think its time to start planning for the next KOP meet. its about to be february and i think if we pick a mid/late march date, it will give everyone enough time to plan and get the day off if needed.

like posted above, the dates that look to work would be....

Weekends that are available:
March 10-11
March 17-18 (17th St. Patricks Day)
March 24-25
March 31- April 1
April 7-8 (Easter Weekend)
April 14-15
April 21-22

also, if we would like the make this a Bi/Tri monthly meet, I can make a new thread with updated info.

for the Bi/Tri Monthly meets I was thinking:
March/April Spring Meet
June/July Summer Meet
September/October Fall Meet

please chime in on what you think would work best for this up coming March/April and also chime in on the Bi/Tri monthly possibility.
