DECEMBER MEET - AT SAAB OF ORANGE PARK

Saturday, December 4th, 2:00pm

Saab of Orange Park
7999 Blanding Blvd

http://www.saaboforangepark.com

The Northeast Florida Saab Club is excited to announce this co-operative effort between Saab enthusiasts and one of our very few local dealers. Please make EVERY effort possible to join us at this event! Tentative plans call for Service Advisors, Technicians, and various Managers to welcome us into their facility, show off Saab's current models (including the beautiful Saab 9-5), answer some of our questions and if all goes well, forge a friendly and mutually beneficial relationship between our local community of owners and a prominent local dealer.

In event announcements like this, it is proper for the author to remain distant, and just post the information and promote the event. But I'm going to break that particular etiquette and inject a personal plea:

Friends:
The more of us that show up to this, the more "leverage" we may have. I want to show this dealer that we can either help them or hurt them, depending on our relationship. If we show up with 6 cars and 10 people, we'll probably never hear from them again... with good reason. WE NEED TO FILL THEIR LOT WITH SAABS OF ALL MODELS, YEARS, AND CONDITIONS THAT WE HAVE AVAILABLE. If you have multiple Saabs, enlist extra drivers to get them there. Come one - come all... please take this seriously... place it up a few notches on your priority list. We can help Saab OP by showing that there is community support for the brand, and by speading word-of-mouth good faith. The can, potentially, help us by lending dealer/factory prestige to our meets, and hopefully more personal service to our dealer needs.

Do you have a gripe with Saab OP? All the MORE reason for you to show up. Lets ask them some tough questions in a professional manner. Again, this is where numbers could make a difference

I KNOW December is a busy month... but I'm beggin' ya.... get as many Saabs and Saab owners to this event as possible. Make a statement. Take a stand.
Your friend and biggest Saab cheerleader,
Glenn


We will post more information as it becomes available.

But for now, clear your calendar for this date and time.

Just an F.Y.I.

I received an e-mail this morning from SAAB of Orange Park inviting me to attend their "SAAB 9-5 Unveiling" from 2 to 5 PM on Saturday 12/04/10. It even asks me to RSVP to the event to someone named Sandy Johnson. Apparently, they are also planning to serve hors d'oeuvres (although they spelled the word wrong in their e-mail).

Maybe we need to designate a specific meeting place so we can distinguish our group from the general public being invited to this event?

Hope to see you all there.

A NEFLSAAB Club Corral sounds like a pretty nice idea to me.

Scott or Ted.... either of you willing to see if Sandy can set something up for us after we know approx. how many cars we'll have?

I'm hoping to get my wife to drive the 9-3 so I can drive the SPG.

Hey guys. Sorry for my late response. I am not sure that it's necessary to ask Sandy to set us up a special meeting place at the dealership. The Saab area is pretty small, and they have not invited the general public to this event, just their saab customers. She will give us a table to set up at, so feel free to meet us there. I hope to have some brochures printed up to generate interest in the club with whatever customers do show up. Please try to wear your club t-shirts and put on a friendly face to anyone you don't know.

RIght now it looks as if we'll have 15 people there if everyone who says they're coming comes. I am counting "significant others" and kids. If anyone who has not sent an RSVP to me or to OP Saab wants to come, let us know ASAP.

Probably just me with the 9-3... we have plans immediately before and after this event, and KJ isn't thrilled about squeezing this in-between.

Glad this is shaping up.

To help the marketing campaign maybe we could institute a slogan from my friends bumper sticker:

"Come to the dark side, we have COOKIES!"

I'm thinking they're gonna want that back...unless you dropped 55 large on the black tester.

Which I'm guessing you didn't.

What, you don't think I can afford it? :lol:

Yeah, I made a special trip back there on Sunday just to drop off the key fob. I did have a little fun dangling it in front of my wife on Saturday night though. Her eyes got pretty big!
