RMSC News 2013 Issue 2 March-April 2013

From your Club President

I always look forward to this time of year. The harsh winter months are over. Spring brings out a new lease on life as now we can be outdoors enjoying what the world offers. This is the best time of year to use my Saab convertible. It sits in my garage with the top down all winter. Sometimes in winter when the weather nice but cold, it gets driven. My record is 13 degrees on a clear winter day driving across Denver and yes, the heater was on full high.

Spring is a whole lot more enjoyable to see the world from the view inside a con- vertible.

Sad to hear the loss of two of our club members, Bill Searcy and Rob Martinson. They will be truly missed. Memorial trib- ute to them appears later in this issue.

We have activities lined up this summer for club to gather with our Saab’s to en- joy the experience of what owning a Saab is really about. We will keep you posted. It will be fun.

Drive safely & keep those Saab’s running forever!!

Meeting was brought to order by club president Jer- ry Danner, at the Breckenridge Brewery.

Greg Russell stated the price to enter a car for ex- hibit in the CP Concours on June 9th at ACC went up from $40 to $50. No registrations will be ac- cepted after May 27th. This is an effort to “curb”

registrations on the day of the show. Volunteers are needed and will receive a free lunch and entry for only 2 hrs of work!! We are looking for a last model year 9-5 as a club entry.

Paul Bottone was at the Denver Auto Show a few weeks ago – only 6 members showed up this year. He also reviewed plans for a Club trip to the Gate- way Museum on Labor Day weekend.

SOC ’13 is in August in Albany NY. Steve, Bruce, Jerry and Darrell are planning on making the trip.

Jerry thanked Charles for his diligence on the news- letter. He also showed a spark plug bug that a neighbor made from a large 2-stroke plug.

Tom noted that 6 of the club members tonight have recently purchased 2011 9-5s or 9-3s.

Jerry talked about his recent trip to the SimeoneMu-
