: Any Interest in a SE PA Meet?

24th August 2011, 01:55 AM
Was looking at the members map and realized we've got a strong amount of 93's in the "Tri-State" area. i missed out on the meet up in the NE @ the poconos about a month or so ago and also missed out on the SOC up in jersey this past week(?). I was interested in getting a meet together before winter, but if we cant get it before then, this up coming spring 2012.

Tri-State 93 thread: https://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=214426&highlight=members

Tri-State 93 Members Map: (about 25 strong ;ol;)
https://www.saabcentral.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=25114&stc=1&d=1314164739

if anyone is interested or has any ideas about a meet, please chime in.

this would be open to any saabs, not just 93's!

I've never put together a meet, so any input is welcomed and encouraged. i would be looking to make it a southeast Pa location, around philadelphia or just outside, seeing that its basically the central area for Pa, Nj, Ny and Md.

so..

What would be a good location near Philadelphia?
How far are people willing to travel? (those in Md, Ny and Nj)
What would be a good date & time? (Fall 2011 or Spring 2012)

I've got a meet im going to on 9/10, Porsche & Ferrari's, so dont want to miss out on that.:lol: (it's in Blue Bell, Pa. PM me if you want info on it!)

9/17, 9/18, 9/24 or 9/25 would be dates i could do it.

about location, im thinking Tony Luke's in Philadelphia, i attened a huge Beemer Meet there and it can hold 100+ cars easy, so we wouldnt have a problem. This is just an idea, if anyone else thinks somewhere else is better, chime in. we dont HAVE to meet in Philly, we could hit up a suburb surrounding it, King of Prussia Mall could be an option too

Option 1
some info on Tony Lukes:

Website: http://www.tonylukes.com.

Parking - the best place to park is next to the Tony Lukes restaurant, under I-95. There are at least a few hundred parking spaces so parking will not be an issue. There is also a small parking lot across the street for about 20 cars.

Eating - Across the street from the restaurant is the "steak shop". There will be quite a line but it will be worth the wait. The restaurant




Option 2
For King of Prussia:

the is a HUGE lot next to the IMAX theater there, plenty of parking, but food and drink would need to be brought, or go for a ride to get some.

Address would be: 300 Goddard Blvd, King of Prussia, Pa. 19406

quick idea of the location...

perhaps

nice, any of the other pocono guys interested??


im going to spread this around a bit and maybe make it a "EURO" meet, since i dont see this being anymore than 5-10 saabs.

i think king of prussia would be a better location imo i just wanna stay outta philly, because of parking/traffic/ground clearance....ect.

Ikea is right outside Philly more towards the northern side. Ill go to either place tho. Ikea just has some good Swedish meatballs.

Just realized this, Allentown looks more central for everyone. And if possible if we can set this up a few weeks in advance, gives me a chance to get off work

keep in mind you guys got the easy 2 hour drive i got 3 going to philly, king of prussia is easier for me allentown is way out of the way. i was hopping we could do king of prussia because that way i can get ben to meet us and i can get my brake bracket and headlight from him at the meet.

hahah u do realize IA i the 18th so i would not be down for that weekend seeing as IA is only the biggest east coast meet organization ever :D and h20 is the following weekend, but i might skip h20 so i would probably down for that if not then the 1st and 2nd would work.

all good, just putting some dates out there. the later it is, it gives people more time to get off work and clear the date. as long as its not pushed back into november, im down:lol: so looks like early/mid october would be best?

My schedule hasn't been made for the 17th,18th,24th, or 25th yet. October would be better for asking a day off. But if I have any of the other days off ill go.

I'd be interested in this. The closer to DC the better :cheesy: date doesn't really matter.

ok so it's been a bit since i updated this.

If we are looking at early october for this, to give everyone around a month to prepare, how does 10/1-10/2 or 10/8-10/9 sound? the sooner the warmer.

and does a saturday work better than a sunday, being that football will be fully started up or any other reason for not being able to attend on a sunday?

I put this up over on Euro Addiction, asking if any other euro rides would be interested, to make this a bit bigger then just a few of us, although it looks like a good amount of us are interested in meeting up. i can also throw this ona few other sites, but would like to keep it mainly "euro themed"

and again, how does KOP work for everyone? will this be a good enough central location for North Pa, MD, De, Nj and Va?

thanks for grabbing this by the horns! i've been busy and havnt checked into this section in the forum in a week or so.

saturday the 8th sounds great, have you picked a start/end time for this?

should we start a new thread to be more direct, rather then the feeler thread --- K.O.P Meet 10/8----?

edit: made an official thread for this, to get straight to the point, all we need is to choose a time, do we want to go early like 8-8:30 or go for a 10-10:30, to give people who are traveling, time to get there?
