We have reported several times on the blog about the countless events and trips and the diverse activities in the SAAB community. In our calendar you will find an excursion or a meeting for almost every weekend.
So also last weekend in Holzweißig near Bitterfeld at the SAAB Service Höbold. Unfortunately, due to bronchitis, I did not have the opportunity to attend the meeting of the Höbold family. But our loyal reader Steffen from Dresden was there and sent us some impressions and snapshots.
The meeting has now been held for the sixth time. Here is a short report from Steffen for everyone who, like me, did not make it there. "...Hello Mark, here is the summary from Saturday, according to a statement by Ben Höbold we were 42,5 cars, the 0,5 is half the 902 as a trailer from the workshop .
The process: - First meeting at the workshop with a small buffet, as in previous years - then the Holzweißig volunteer fire brigade arrives with various demonstrations, first person trapped under the car. Then the Mr. Höbold jun. The test 9-3's airbags were blown to demonstrate the force. Then the poor 9-3 was 'processed' with the spreader until it stood there as a convertible with hardtop. - Then the well-known raffle, the main prize was a boat trip on the Goitzsche - then it was in a convoy to the Goitzsche and lined up for a photo shoot of the Saab's on the locked parking lot - then there was the opportunity to make friends with the Segway's - but only briefly there We went to eat, a nice buffet in a Bavarian ambience (South Tyrol) - after refreshment we went on a Segway Parkour ride ...
Most of the Saabs were mainly from the surrounding area, otherwise a small group from Berlin, me as a Dresdner. A couple of people from Leipzig and Halle. In terms of the model, everything from the 96, 9-7, 9-3 (TX) to a beautiful "new" white 9-5 II was represented ... "
Many thanks to Steffen and the entire Höbold family. We hope that we can be back next year.
