As some of you may know it is the Golden Jubilee of the Saabs Owners Club here in the UK. To celebrate the 50th year the SOC is organising a ‘golden’ flag relay, much like last years Olympic torch relay.
The flag will be delivered from branch to branch, and it is the club’s intention that each branch signs it as they pass it on, together with a photograph taken of the handover ceremony.
It will start with the East Sussex branch at the beginning of May and move clockwise around the local branches, ending up with East Anglia, where a pre- tour for the International is being held.
From there the flag will be delivered to the International and proudly put on display.
Toby Field has the flag at the moment and he will be travelling to The Lakeside Country Park in Eastleigh on the 5th May to hand it over to Alex and Robin from South West Saab at around 12 mid day.
All are welcome to come along to any of the hand overs and say hi and get in the picture too.
The 2nd hand over will be at the “Swedish Day” event (near Yeovil) on the 12th May where “SWS” will hand the flag over to “West Mids & Warwickshire Saab” Again a photo will be taken.
Please get in touch with any of the local group for date and location details if you wish to see any of the hand overs. And be in the photo.
I will try and publish updates etc here (on this thread) as and when we get them.
