It seems like Summer slipped away when we weren’t looking. Here are some belated pics from the 10th edition of our annual winery tour in July. Thanks again to Paul and Alyson Stephenson for organizing this event every year.

Budd’s is hosting a BBQ for all Saab owners. This is not limited to Saab Club members nor do you need to be a Budd’s client. If you know someone who owns a Saab, please share this information with them.
Special News: We have purchased a limited quantity of the NINES magazine, the publication put together by the Saab Club of North America. These will be available on a “first come, first served” basis at the BBQ event. If there are any left over, we will bring them to our next club meeting.
Note: these magazines will only be issued to registered
Please note: we are holding this meeting instead of our monthly meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of September.

Here we are in the snow. The thing about Ontario, it’s pretty flat. You don’t have to scale a mountain to be on the “Roof of Ontario”!Update: weather looks promisingly wintry for the next week, so we are confirmed to go Sunday February 1st.
We will meet at 10:30 AM at Tim Horton’s in Shelburne. It’s 800 Main St. West, at the corner of Highway 9/10 and County Road 124 (neé Highwaty 24) at the west end of Shelburne. Depart on the drive at 11 AM sharp. See you there. Bring your snow tires!
See the event listing for map.
By popular demand, the Saab Club will be reprising the Winter Drive. It will take place on either the first or second Sunday in February–the 1st or 8th. Please stay tuned–we need to watch the forecast, which currently goes out to Thursday (and do you trust it anyway?). I’d love to wait until we know what Wiarton Willie predicts, but that’s a little too late. Masybe I’ll take my Saab out to a field this weekend and see if it sees its own shadow.
We’re surely going to have less wintry weather than last year. Hopefully there will still be plenty of snow on the roads in early February.
