Looking For A Large Physical Print Of Group Photo taken at the Convention to Place Above

The 2008 Saab Owners Convention took place in Devens, Massachusetts from August 21st through 24th.

Take a look at the activities from the convention which took place on Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

In addition to the group photo, I am looking for video taken from the convention including the material from GM Next.

Here is the welcome message from the SCNA:

Welcome all fellow Saab Club of North America members and honored guests to the 26th Annual Saab Owners Convention (SOC).

As is usually the case, this event was planned and organized by a small number of dedicated Saab Club members. In this instance, the following Board of Directors made significant contributions of their time and personal sacrifice to bring the SOC back to the American North East: Linnea Krajewski (SOC08 Coordinator), Annette Adams, Seth D. Bengelsdorf, Lester Ewing, Stephen Goldberger, George McElhinney and Ed Smith.

We are extremely pleased to have as your special guest, Mr. Sten Wennlo, who, as head of Saab AB in the Seventies was instrumental in greenlighting the 99 Turbo project.

Having folks from the VSCNA and NESA participate in the SOC activities is very welcome. Thanks a lot for all your help!

As always, we are extremely pleased with the continued support and sponsorship of the SCNA by Saab USA, Steve Shannon, Jan-Willem Vester and their capable staff are really appreciated for their continued support throughout the year. The support of all of our sponsors is always appreciated and we would ask everyone to remember this when you make a decision on buying or leasing a new Saab, or, upgrading or fixing an older one.

We hope you have a wonderful time and look forward to seeing you all again in Colorado for SOC09!

Safe Saabing!

Ian Glenday, President
Saab Club of North America
