Belgium Saab Club today handed over a cheque for €500 to the foundation for children with cancer.
The money was generated by the organisation committee of the meeting Intsaab 2012 in Spa which took place in early August. Nicolas Demuynckn, great organiser on the left and Jan De Rijk, President of the Club on the right are seen handing the gift to Professor Yves Benoit.
I received a nice email this morning from our friend Martin who was at IntSaab Belgium last month where they celebrated the 25th birthday of the Belgium club and 30 years of international Saab Club meetings. Looking at the photo’s, it’s hard not to feel that for those of us who couldn’t be there really missed out.
In Martin’s words below, it sounds that Great Britain has its work cut out to try to match this years meet.
We had the most fantastic time and to be able to do 6 laps of Francorchamps race circuit was just the most amazing experience! The Belgian owners club put on an incredible event the likes of which I think would be very difficult to match.
I don’t know, I think they can do it. Great Britain will be celebrating 50 years of British Saab Clubs. The 2013 meeting will be held in Kettering in the heart of England and will be held August 2-4. Check out the Facebook page for IntSaab 2013 and start planning to be there if you can. They have a website too but it looks to still be under construction and given that 2012 IntSaab has just past, I’m a little surprised to already see so much coming together for the next.
Thanks again to Martin for his photo’s and good luck to those involved in next years event, I really look forward to seeing this come together.
Azzy and I are packed and ready for our journey to Belgium, the 9-5 has had a full valet and looks very good. Everything we need is loaded into the car ready for a 7.30am dash for the ferry in Dover. The buzz is there and we just need one more sleep.
I have also packed a few items from the SU store including some special limited edition t-shirts as well as a new domed badge. The new licence plate holders are in the car too.
See you there.
Any orders received into the Store will be delayed until I get back, sorry.
