Hi Everyone,<p>We are pleased to announce our next event:<p><U>What:</U><br>Swedish Day at IKEA (West Sacramento) with the Bay Area Saab Club<p>Sac Volvo Club Event Flyer:<br><A HREF="http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/events/event-flyer" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Ho...flyer</A><p>Bay Area Saab Club Website:<br><A HREF="http://www.bayareasaabclub.com/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bayareasaabclub.com/</A><p><U>When:</U><br>Saturday, June 13, 2009<br>10:00A<p><U>Where:</U><br>IKEA (parking lot ~row D)<br>700 West IKEA Ct.<br>West Sacramento, CA 95605<p>Copy and Paste from the Event Flyer:<br>Last year, we had a “Volvo Day at IKEA” with a car show and Swedish trivia game.<br>This year, with the event scheduled between Swedish Day on June 6th and Midsummer Celebrations on June 20th, we thought it would be more fitting if we expanded the event to “Swedish Day at IKEA” with all Volvos and Saabs invited to the car show and Swedish-themed “treasure hunt / great race” type game!<p>As before, we will meet in the IKEA parking lot (~row D) in West Sacramento close to the entrance:<p>IKEA<br>700 West IKEA Ct.<br>West Sacramento, CA 95605<p>See the Sac Volvo Club Event Flyer link above for an attached map on page two to find the general area where we will park and greet each other (marked with a thumbtack). Following introductions, we will have an opportunity to chat, enjoy Sweden’s finest automobiles, and share information on Volvo and Saab lore.<p>At about 11:30 AM to noon or so, we will move inside IKEA to enjoy a buffet lunch upstairs in a conference room that we have reserved next to IKEA’s buffet. During the lunch, we would like to discuss club events, and the possibility of the Sacramento Chapter working with the Golden Gate Chapter to expand our Spring Davis event next year to either a VCOA Regional or West coast meet. All of the ideas that we will generate or explore about Davis will be passed on to CJ Yother, Golden Gate’s new President.<p>Following this at about 1:00 or 1:30 PM, we will begin the Swedish-themed “treasure hunt / great race” type game that will include questions and clues written on placards that will be placed throughout IKEA’s second floor. Those who complete this multi-staged game first will win!<p>IKEA can be reached from Interstate 80 in West Sacramento by taking the Reed Rd. exit (just to the north of the store) and going East. From there, IKEA Ct. will be your first right (going South) IKEA is toward the end of this short street as you work your way Southwest.<br>If in doubt, pull up driving directions from your location on an online directions / map website.<p>This event is free of charge for participants, with the exception that you will need to cover the cost of an inexpensive lunch (the Swedish meatballs are great).<p><B>If you wish to attend, please RSVP so we know how many to plan for.</B><p>To RSVP, you can either:<br>-Send me a PM<br>-Contact Us: <A HREF="http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/contactus" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/contactus</A><br>-Use the Event RSVP form: <A HREF="http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/events/event-registration" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Ho...ation</A><p>-----<p>Side note:<br>I am also looking for some help generating some more challenging Saab trivia-type questions for our Saab guests (moderately difficult-- something that an average Saab enthusiast should know, but nothing frustratingly difficult). If you would like to help, please let me know!<p>-----<p>Hope to see you there!<p>Take care,<br>volvie!
