I am posting this on behalf of Julie Gardner and James McGuire

All listed dates are Sunday due to a lot of people working Saturday.

We are hoping to work along with the King of Prussia guys on this.

In the "thinking stages" of having a gathering of Saab at Valley Forge Park sometime late Oct or early November 2012.

Valley Forge National Historical Park ( where Jim works) offers plenty of parking locations with some picnic areas, a great Revolutionary War museum / exhibit, miles and miles of walking/bike path and is pet friendly. There are some great picture opportunities such as the national memorial arch along with one covered bridge.

Pack a lunch, order a pizza from a local shop, bring a small grill what ever works.

Less than 1 mile away is the Valley Forge Casino and about two miles away is the King of Prussia Mall. Something for everyone... anyone interested?

"Varnums" picnic area at VF park is a nice location. We are currently trimming trees there and it offers a nice area for picnic and parking.

The park offers some real nice roads to "convoy" on and show off our Saabs.

This is NOT meant to step on the toes of the KOP gathering so please do not take it as such. I did talk to my partner from the January gathering at Longwood Gardens- that would be me : ) . She's cool with leading a convoy from the Lancaster PA area so long as there is sufficient interest from people.

Whatcha all think??

as the "coordinator" of the KOP meets, this sounds like i great idea. i know we talked about it for a minute when you stumbled upon the Summer Meet, so this is a great idea.

once we get everything decided, we can make the official thread ;ol;

As long as my calendar stays open I'm down. Thinking of hitting up Eastern State Penitentiary the night before for the haunted house if this takes place in October.

Any word of when fall KOP might be? I should finally be able to make it as well as make it to Valley Forge, so having a 3 or 4 week gap between Valley Forge and KOP might be nice since some people can get a bit lazy and might not want to drive several hours each way on consecutive weekends... or maybe that's just me speaking for myself...

The idea of this was to combine the two. The Fall KOP will be the Valley Forge meet. The locations are so close. Nothing is set in stone, but I think the idea was for the people travelling to meet at KOP then travel over to valley forge for a cookout and picture taking.

Once we can pick a date its up to Mike, Julie, and James to really set up an itenery for the rest of us.

Oh, that clears it up a bit and sounds like a good plan. Oct 21st sounds great.

I will need to check in with Jim McGuire and see what he has in mind as far as an itinerary... I pretty much just thought meet somewhere- maybe find a place (diner, etc ) that can do breakfast for a group? and then drive to VF. From there hang out, talk SAAB, and share the love then be on our respective ways...:D
