***FREE***   Virginia/SCNA - SAAB Meet & Greet Event

On Sunday, March 29, 2020(12:30 PM - 5:30 PM) we will be having our 2nd Annual FREE Virginia/SCNA - SAAB Meet & Greet Event at the magnificent 751 acre private Blue Ridge School campus, which is nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and encompassed by breathtaking 360º mountain views. Located in St. George(Dyke), VA, the grounds are simply awe-inspiring with; a serene lake, several ponds and glistening streams, a gun range, fishing, tennis and basketball courts and 15 miles of scenic biking and hiking trails. Rich in history, many of the buildings were designed by the prolific architect, Ralph Adams Cram and 2 of the campus' structures have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Last year's event took place at the palatial 600 acre Castle Hill Cidery Estate in Keswick, VA. With 62 SAABs spanning the full spectrum of our beloved brand, from the Vintage years, to the Classics and through the GM era all 103 attendees and guest were treated to some very rare and iconic SAABs. We are inviting all SAAB; owners, enthusiasts, collectors, fans, friends and interested parties to join us this year, for what will undoubtedly be the largest epic gathering of SAABs ever assembled in Virginia. We will have SAAB Convoys trekking to this Virginia event from; NC, GA, MI, WV, DC, NoVA and MD. Our goal this year is to set a new record and have an absolute avalanche of SAABs to grace the campus. We are encouraging all SAAB owners with multiple SAABs to get a friend/family member to drive your other SAABs to the event and help us place 150+ SAABs in the display lot for the media!!

Once again, we could not have this FREE event without the help of our sponsors; The SAAB Club of North America, NINES, Saabnet, Saabtech, Swedish Performance, Krona Performance, International Imports, European Cars of Williamsburg, Virginia SAABs, SAABklubbenVA and The Virginia SAAB Driving Club. Par-for-the-course, there will be a limited amount of SAAB swag on hand to purchase the day of the event, so place your orders early. 

We will once again have our time-honored formal program, which will take place in the 22,000 sf Indoor Field House, at the host site, featuring a renowned SAAB historian guest speaker and we will also have several SAAB Master Techs on hand to answer any of your SAAB related mechanical questions. 

We are pleased to announce that this year we are adding several new and exciting SAAB Experiences;

  1.  We will be having a SAAB Car Show with 3 available classes to enter: (1) Performance/Modified, (2) Original/Stock and (3) People's Choice. 1st Place Winners in each category will be awarded a commemorative event trophy. Each attendee will be sent an electronic ballot, via their smartphone, to place their vote in each category.
  2.  We will have a Food Truck conveniently stationed on campus to provide all attendees with some savory food choices and refreshing beverages.
  3.  We are privileged and honored to have been selected to host the most anticipated SAAB Reveal of 2020!!! 3 of the most gifted performance tuners/modifiers/fabricators in the States have collaborated on what will arguably be one of the most powerful SAABs on the East Coast. This build has not been seen anywhere and all of our attendees and guest will be treated to this very momentous unveiling --- LIVE!!! Not just a track beast, this SAAB is touted as being an aesthetical masterpiece complete with a set of amazing shoes and eye-catching LED resto-updates.
  4.  On Saturday, March 28th we will have a catered SAAB VIP Dinner in the elegant Victorian Gothic Martha Bagby Battle House on the private campus adjacent to the main lake. For those captivated by 16th - century Gothic Revival architecture, no need to travel to England ---- this building checks all of the boxes; rustic stone, decorative patterns, drip mould, gable roof and fieldstone. After dinner the VIPs will be treated to a Tour, which will include a peek into the office of our weekend host, who made this venue available to us. Beyond the beautiful architecture and interesting furnishings, this office also houses some very rare and sought-after SAAB memorabilia that has been collected from all over the world. If you are a "hardcore" SAAB collector, you definitely want to attend this SAAB VIP Dinner. Only 15 spots are available for this Dinner and Tour, it is FREE to all members of the SAAB Club of North America(SCNA) and will cost $20 for non-members.
  5.  There will be an Online Silent Auction taking place during this year's event. If you are looking for that special/rare SAAB part or memorabilia item, you will want to view our online auction website(link to follow --- goes live 1 week before the event). If you have items you would like to sell or swap, to clear out some space for spring or to help fund a SAAB project, contact us to get your items listed with us. This auction will go live - nationwide.
  6.  For those traveling in from a distance, we will have a secure area available for Overnight Camping and Cooking Out on the evening of March 28th. Bring your lawn chairs and lounge by the picturesque main lake under the stars and indulge in some intoxicating "SAAB stories".
