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 😁😎

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.
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.

Ive got two, but depending on location probably could contribute 1.

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.
06R Custom Electric Blue Silver
07R Magic Blue - Sold
04 Bonatti Gray Rover Disco HSE
09 Iridium Silver SLK55 AMG P30 Edition
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'm in guys!!
I have a 2007 S60R to add to the count.
I would like to hop onto this! Where would the start and end destination be?
2007 Volvo V70 R-Titanium Grey/Nordkap
1998 Volvo V70 XC-Pewter Silver/Light Taupe
Also potentially in, probably get 3-4 cars in
I am down to make the drive from Miami, FL!
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
