      AND

      There was a similar yearly event in The Netherlands this year with +2000 cars, they came from all over Europe, Ask Jared, he has been there!
      Should be one in 2019 again, and heared they might do the Guiness Book Of Records thing also.
      Yeah.......if anyone besides maybe Sweden thinks they can beat the Netherlands....all I can say is good luck. Lol. Ever been on the way to a Volvo meet and you're cruising along seeing car after car that's also on the way to said Volvo meet? I don't mean like one or two cars, probably most of us have had that happen....I mean like 20 or 30. It was insane. It'd be like if you went to Carlisle and it was like twice as big and ONLY Volvos. It was a truly mind blowing experience. If only people camped out like they do at Carlisle so there would be enough time to actually take it all in.

      Hell, it’s been a while since I went to a big car meet - guess I should jump back in and help out the Volvo community!😎

      Assuming the date lines up to when I’m back in the US from Afghanistan I’ll come in my V70R 😁😎

      Pssst.... if we do this in Maryland, there's a brand new Guinness Brewery that opened about 4 months ago about 15 minutes West of Baltimore City on the way to D.C.
      It is the only in North America and I think the only one outside of Ireland. They offers tours and events.



      Baltimore Harbor with both Camden Yards and Ravens Stadium complex, where they hold car events, and even stage the Baltimore GP, is ~15 minutes back in the other direction.



      Just a thought.

      Weather wise.
      Best months for this region are May - mid-July. It gets uncomfortably hot and humid after this. September is hurricane and rain season. No bueno.
      Early thru mid-October can be dicey, but late October through Mid-November are generally tepid to cool but stable weather with the added bonus of trees hitting peak color in the 3rd week of October (generally).

      That's cool. I didn't know they were opening one up in the US. My dad loved Guinness!

      I toured the Guinness factory in Ireland about 10 years ago.

      Welcome to the Guinness planning forum

      Edit. Made it. They’ve got a big parking lot. Maybe not big enough but it’s big.

      I'll be at the Maryland one later today, barring horrible traffic that forces me to say forget it.
      Special event!

      I've got 2 cars my self and possibly 2 drivers. But I got 2 more that I can invite personally. Any of you guys use instagram? There is a new Volvo club getting started Midatlantic Volvo Club. They are planning a swap meet in about 6 months and they are also working with IPD FCP and Swedish Car Parts there could be alot of cars/Drivers gathered from these guys! Also when would be a great to know. Good thing NJ just got mandatory sick leave, I know where I'm using mine!

      Hey everyone. Manager of the Mid Atlantic Volvo Club here. 940Pusher told me about this and I think this is great!
      Our club is rapidly growing and we already have about 30-40 members and rising. We would love to be apart of this somehow.

      We definitely need a set/vague dates. I know once we have those I can get 7-10 SR/VR's to commit.

      Additionally, I have great contacts with Volvo reps as well as a handful of companies. I could most likely assemble 40-60 cars.

      Having set up events before, do not do this on a holiday. Do not do this during rainy season. Do not do this during the week (obviously).

      What I am personally thinking is that we hold it the SAME day as the one across the pond. Make this a friendly competition between America and our oddball friends overseas. (Much love!♡)

      Starting point: Any location within 2-3 miles of the SC Volvo location.

      Ending point: SC Volvo location

      Starting time: 8AM

      Ending time: 6 or 8PM

      Get sponsors for the event. This would be their golden ticket for publicity. Sponsors supply drinks and snacks. Maybe music.

      Could make this a 2 day event if anything. Saturday into Sunday.

      Have a portion for all the vendors. One portion for a car show. Another for visitors.

      I'd love to come, but it depends on where/when.
      If in St Louis (previously mentioned, or even KC), I would do it, and maybe even get both cars there. Any farther, and just 1 car.
      My brother lives in MD, so I could figure out a coastal city in that region, such as Philly, Baltimore or DC.
      I'm not sure I could swing the wife on a 1000 mile road trip to SC JUST for a Volvo meet-up, though...but I'd try ;P

      I am on board! I have one Volvo to contribute, and I live in Wyoming, however I should be working in New Orleans that time of year. Either way I would be willing to figure out a trip for such a record maker!
