First of all, I’d like to thank the membership for the vote of confidence in electing me to the position of club president. I will work hard to live up to your expectations and help this club grow. I thought I’d take a few lines to “introduce” myself and let you know a little more about me.
My husband Marty and I are the owners/operators of two Saab exclusive dealerships in Iowa. While not the largest dealerships in the country, we’re proud of the contribution we make to the brand and the Saab community. I have three children who have been very supportive of my involvement with the Saab Club and Saab Owners' Conventions. You may have seen them on site helping with events. I am also a Saab enthusiast. You may think that would be a given due to what I do for a living, but that isn’t always the case. I truly enjoy Saab and believe in the brand.
Wow! What a wonderful turnout at the Saab Owners' Convention 2011! Thanks to the hard work of the board members, we had a great convention, spectacular speakers and thankfully lucked out in the weather department. Special thanks to all of our sponsors and advertisers, without their help, this event would not be possible.
Listed in this issue are all the winners of the awards for People’s Choice and Concours. Congratulations to all. I personally know the hard work involved in getting cars ready to show. The support of Saab Cars North America was fantastic from the Heritage Collection vehicles, guest speakers, test drives, round table….the list goes on and on. Thank you.
Preparation for Saab Owners' Convention 2012 is underway and we will be posting information as it becomes available at www.saabconvention.com. Your suggestions and feedback are very important, please pass that information to anyone on the board via the Club's Contact Page.
President, Saab Club of North America
