Well, unfortunately as often happens in life, things conspire to get in the way of what we really like to do......
Something's come up, I have to be some where else that weekend, so will not now make it.

Gutted.

I will be cancelling our room at the hotel, today, so there will be a double room going, if anyone wants it?

OK, this is looking like the final(ish) list, though as above there may be a chance of a room being available to join us for the weekend. In addition, we have a group from the Scottish Saab Club who want to join us on the Sunday (meeting us at the Gem Museum) so that should add another 12-18 Saabs to the run. I am just sending off the booking for the Gem Museum, although this can be modified up to a week before the event so again, let me know.

Unfortunately, due to 3 Telecom losing their entire network in France for 4 days whilst I was there, I missed the deadline to get rally plates made, so we will not have these. I am investigating a couple of options, but I can announce that Classic Car Holidays (www.classic-car-holiday.com) have kindly sponsored the event in as much as they have provided a very nice prize for the quiz. I now just have to write the quiz....... :lol:

I'll try to get out on the Sunday morning if that's ok. I'm staying at the Auchenlarie caravan park on fri, sat and sun, and it looks like your passing by. If you see a stray 93 viggen then it's me.
cheers

Be good to see you Martin. Planning on leaving the Bruce Hotel around 1000.

Not letting on the route.... :twisted:

Safe journey all, see you later on.

Thats the fluids all checked, tyres checked and the car given a quick wash for tomorrow, no time for a polish unfortunately. I'll see you all at the hotel tomorrow morning 8) looking forward to the day.

A fantastic weekend, thanks to all who contributed, and especially those who travelled so far! 8) We had 12 Saabs on the run on Saturday (and managed to convoy without losing anyone!) and 11 Saabs and a VW today. The three 'verts did both days with the roof down! Today a further 10 Saabs joined us (from the Scottish Saab Club), making 21 Saabs and the VW.

No photos from me, but others took plenty so hopefully when they get home and have recovered a bit, they will post some up. We could have done with a few more UKS regulars there, the SOC outnumbered us :lol: but planning for next years SOC/UKS Scottish Saab Weekend is already on the go as everyone who attended expressed the wish to return net year. The venue has not been decided but it will be a bit further North this time.

Thanks Nick for organising the event. It was great to meet everyone on the Saturday and put screen names to faces. Hoping to make more events in the future. Thanks again for letting me join in on the Saturday run even if I left you all at lunch time but it seemed a tad pointless driving back to the Bruce Hotel to turn around and drive north again on the same road. Got a few pictures I'll upload once I figure out how to do it, lol.

Cheers!
