I'll be there, for the first time. Shopping for a hotel for the night before right now.

Where was it even announced? Thought the Puget Sound VCOA had been disbanded.

Never was affiliated with the Puget Sound VCOA, however, members were invited to show up. Originally was started by PSVSA, but is now being run by one of their members.

Scroll down to the bottom.

Now there's something called Volvo Sports America? Did the old folks get into a tizzy among each other?

Nope, the Puget Sound VSA chapter has been around for many years. Probably started before the VCOA chapter did.

A few pics. Some people were scared off by the weather forecast. I also suspect that some people were at PnP instead, pulling parts.

I do know that, other than myself, vol242vo and his wife, mblue240, his dad, and kids, all showed up.

Nice pics, John. First i have heard of it, too.
I don?t miss logging in to facebook, but i used to see a lot of your posts (before they totally screwed it up) and i miss seeing you and the other volvo people there.
Now facebook is screwing up instagram.

Cool. Kinda glad that the pesky Puget Sound Convergence Zone remained where it was all day, even though it did make for a wet day at home.


Another TB'er showed up near the end of the meet. Johann245 with his lifted Classic.
