The Board has taken a bit of an IQ hit lately
<p>whoa - i detect some M3-esque attitude - frankly a little lightheartedness can leaven this sober lump of dough we call the R Forum<br>

Re: The Board has taken a bit of an IQ hit lately... (Thesaurrex)

Well this board and the Audi board suffer from M3 envy often so I guess it would not hurt. Humor<br>is fine but if I want childish antics I just go over the Buckeye forum and read their posts <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Interesting that people want names etc. Nothing in particular stands out on its own merit just a collective <br>downturn of "quality"

Maybe it's possible that every possible tecnhical question regarding the R series has been asked at least 5 times?<p>Someone needs to do more mods.<p>Where's Kelly? We need him to buy his 6th set of wheels or his 4th exhaust or something. <p>Post a GTech Graph for crying out loud!<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: The Board has taken a bit of an IQ hit lately... (needsdecaf)

What we need is a big event/gathering...not just a track day...but a real Volvo gathering with sponsors, drives, vendors and stuff....like a BMWCCA Oktoberfest...something that maybe even a rep or two from VCNA will attend. How about an R gathering at VCOA's East Coast National Meet in September? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Maybe that would get us back on track talking about all things Volvo and R.<p>-Eric

Re: (Copeland)

I've been to:<p><A HREF="http://www.bmwroadsterhomecoming.com/" TARGET="_blank">Z3 Homecoming</A> which is now called Roadster Homecoming. They exceeded the 500 car cap every year I attended.<p>and<p><A HREF="http://www.tt-east.org/" TARGET="_blank">TT East</A>.<p>Both events were model specific but always more about the people than the car, which is why non-car people always had a great time. It was an opportunity to meet completely different people with a common bond. We made some really great friends from our years attending Z3 Homecoming. I've always wanted to go to BMWCCA's Oktoberfest, but I've heard similar reactions from attendees to that event as well.<p>-Eric

someone should get something like this going for Volvo's like the z3 homecoming and bimmerfest.....(again sue brought up a good point)<p>and not limit it to any model or year of Volvo....hell i want to see some Volvo 18 wheelers out there! It could easily work with some sponsors..... Volvo/Ford corp, Intel (i got some hookups), heico, evolve, and some donors...... it could/would be amazing.....but finding a central location and sponsors is a lil difficult...<p>aw shoot that little wheel inside my head is spinning.....i hvae nothing better to do with my life...i can just see me started something like this with some help......

Re: (Copeland)

Think there is enough interest in an R gathering that would be large enough to get sponsorpship, vendors, etc.? I'd be willing to work on something with a team of people. IM me if you think we should try to put something together.<p>-Eric
