Details:  http://intermarque.org/index.php/spring-kick-off/

If we want to park the vintage SAABs together we must arrive together so let’s meet offsite at 9:00 AM:

Fleet Farm (West Side of the Parking lot) 8400 Lakeland Ave N, Brooklyn Park, MN 55445

**Show cars must be 2001 or older to be on display **Newer Saabs are welcome to park in guest parking.

NEWS:

Our last meeting was October 1st, 2020.  Minutes from the meeting can be found at https://mnsaab.club/minutes-october-1-2020/

Meetings vs. Events:

Some important highlights include a motion adopted to change the structure of how we organize meetings – going from a “regular meeting” every other month to an annual business meeting and a “club event” monthly.  If we need to call a business meeting sometime throughout the year we can always do so with a member making the request in writing to board@mnsaab.club.  This measure cuts down on the frequency of regularly scheduled meetings and allows for more flexibility for members to organize events, cruises, lunch meets, and car show type events. We will still have two Adopt-A-Highway volunteering opportunities per year, usually spring and fall.

Elections:

Every April elections are held for the leadership of the club- Volunteers elected to help keep club business in order.  If you’re interested in running for a position the following positions are currently open for nominations until Friday April 16:

President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer,Director
