An addendum to our February calendar, which affects German Saab friends. At the same time, a note about the possibility of registering for the IntSaab 2020. The big international Saab meeting will take place this year at our friends in Denmark. As the number of participants is limited as always, we recommend that you register early.
The IntSaab meeting takes place every year in a different country. 2020 from August 7th to 9th in southern Jutland, and if you like it, you can extend your Saab time in Denmark a little longer. 5 days before the actual start of the IntSaab, pre-tours begin in the south and north of the country. Another pre-tour under German direction is currently being debated on social media. Jan and Justus are planning to participate in the blog and will report on what has happened.
In principle, booking is recommended, like-minded people from all countries meet, the sympathy for the legend from Trollhättan brings them together. Participation costs € 140,00 per person, children up to the age of 12 pay half. More than 110 vehicles are currently registered, and you can register here.
Another event that will take place in Essen is much more timely than the Saab summer event.
