Arrow Feeler: 2nd Annual Saturnfest- Cincinnati, Ohio: Summer 2011

Okay, I have been thinking about planning the 2nd Annual Cincinnati Saturnfest to take place sometime this Summer, 2011.

I had a low turnout last year, I think because alot of people found out about it late, or were on vacation, etc.

I am putting the invite out there now as a feeler. If you are interested, especially if you live in the Cincinnati area, I would really love to be able to get together with a few of you to help me plan this out.

Dates are still to be determined, but I'm really wanting to gauge interest and see how many people are interested and what would be a good date to organize this...

I am thinking that sometime in August would be best. As I had this the last weekend in July last year, moving the date this year will give enough people planning time if they are interested.

No matter what type of Saturn you own- my intention of doing these once a year is to give an outlet for owners to meet up, show off your cars, and exchange parts and repair techniques with each other.

If you are interested, please reply in this thread and send email to Saturns9102@aol.com

Wish you weren't 8 hours away! Hubby's been trying to organize a statewide meet for 3rd gen F-Bodies, know how difficult that can be. Wish there would be a statewide meet for Saturns, we'd definitely go.

Try to an idea where people will be coming from. Then maybe you can decide on a location that would beneficial to most of the members, rather than one select geographic area.

I might be, be interesting to get some tips on mine. Runs good as it is but wouldnt mind learning a few things. Im not exactly a mechanic either but as said, tips are always nice

Back to the matter on hand: Id love to go, but who knows what kind of school planning ill be up to then. Also with gas at almost $4 a gallon, although the drive isnt bad gas will kill me probably. Be definitely interested in more information however....

On another note ive always thought it be fun at the meet to have a mudpit for the awd SUV Saturns (ie vue and outlook).

Bumping this thread....

Anyone interested?

My vision for "Saturnfest" is to eventually do what has been done with Volkswagen in Columbus....

http://www.covvc.org/volksfest.htm

I've talked with the organizers of Volksfest in the past to get ideas...Volksfest has been going for 20 years now.

Now, granted Saturn doesn't have the same following as Volkswagen does, but the people that own Saturns (at least from what I have seen on this board and elsewhere), seem like an extension of a family. What has been done with the Volksfest, is something that I would like to see with Saturn...at least here in Cincinnati.

2NDSOUT, is there any way we can move the location to like maybe NJ or Philadelphia? Reason i say this is because it seems you are getting response from people living in either PA, NJ, or NY which is really just north of my neck of the woods. If we do it somewhere in NJ, say at one of the shore points it may not be bad as it wont be a big drive for many involved, also being at the shore its a nice beach day too . I realize it would be a stretch for you and depending what part of Ohio, PA, NJ your from. Doesnt have to be the shore but im just thinking of good location. The right location should bring a good response.

Yeah, it's just a "hop,skip, and jump" for us Ohioans to head on over to the beach in NJ...

(half-hour drive, maybe?)

Well its convienient for me! . But i know for people coming from further West that would be a drag. Get over the Whitman/ Ben Franklin (whatever your bridge of choice is) - get on 42 south, take that to A/C expressway, you'll be there in no time Bik .

If we did decide on that i can also give alternates that can avoid tollroads/possibly traffic.

Somewhere in PA might be good as well as it could make life easier on people from Ohio/western areas. I really dont know what kind of responses 2ndSout is getting but personally i would say see where most people are coming from and put the event in that area.

(btw i dont know if you were being sarcastic or not with the drive thing, seems it)

Oh no. Not @ all.

Everyone (west of jersey), knows that it only takes a half an hour to cross the commonwealth of Pennslyvania...

Even less if you avoid the toll roads.

Default Re: Feeler: 2nd Annual Saturnfest- Cincinnati, Ohio: LATE SUMMER 2011

UPDATE:

Still looking to have this event... Now in September 2011

I am interested in seeing what the consensus is for those that are interested in attending.

This summer kind of got away from me....

I am going to start doing some quick research this week to see if there are any picnic shelters that would be available in September. I would hate to move this October because it would start getting too cold. Let me know what the consensus is from everyone...I know that there was some interest back in May this year.

Those of you who are in the Cincinnati area that would be interested in helping me put this together, please let me know via email: Saturns9102@aol.com

I am going to have to determine a set date to hold this event each year....

Let me know if this is something that would interest you... and sorry about the late notice. I will keep this thread updated over the next couple of days depending on the responses....

I think a Saturn fest would be an awesome idea!!! I do realize this is a really old thread, but I've been trying to find people for a while now to at least have some sort of meet. I live in Louisiana, but I think a meet on the gulf coast in Mississippi on a summer day/night would be amazing. I would definitely be willing to drive though if something like this would happen.
