This will be interesting...not sure how a "Virtual" Homecoming will happen.

I wasn't aware that there was one held previously.


Exciting news indeed.

Charlie, thanks for the lead-in to make everyone think it had something to do with Saturn! It's not like the retailers would wonder what was coming.
We appreciate it.
Also, I will make sure not to go to your "homecoming".
I can't tell you how much this angers me.

Hey...go easy on Charlie. He added a disclaimer yesterday that this announcement had nothing to do with the sale of Saturn to Penske. I think the virtual homecoming is a neat idea. Can't wait to attend!

To call this a big announcement, during these times, was at best in poor taste. Peoples jobs potentially hang in the balance of each "big" piece of news about Saturn right now. Please Charlie, don't tease anymore.

It sounds GREAT! To have virtual fun and "meet up" with all the other Saturns! What could be better. It is not the BIG NEWS I was hoping for...but I also didn't have someone giving me a million dollars today either!!!! So I'm about even I figure!

Thanks Charlie!

Wow. This just proves the point the lack of common sense the average person has.

I'm pretty sure employees of Saturn would know about what is going on within the organization more than a internet based owners forum/website that has no affiliation what so ever with Saturn or GM.

I mean if there was some big secret revealed about the company today at 2:00, Common sense would say it would of been mentioned elsewhere. But like I said, common sense is lacking.

Man. Some of you (1 post rhroyer and 2 post roadking) need a diaper change and some nap time. Seriously.

What did people honestly expect the announcement to be? What do you think the chances would be that Charlie -- and only Charlie -- had some "major breaking news" regarding GM/Saturn/Penske/Opel/Magna that no one else on the entire web knew about?

Rick,

Sorry you feel THAT way. Charlie is NOT A Saturn Employee nor does he work for ANY Retail Facility.

He is JUST a SaturnFan that has spent IMO way too many hours trying to promote, his passion; SATURN.

If you work for a Retail Facility, there is a place where you can get information and ask questions of the moderator, who works for Saturn.

Charlie was just trying to get us ALL on the same page again, now that we are moving into a new era.

Roadking,

It is IMO a HUGE announcement. After the months here seeing the first generation owners not satisifed unless the "S" series comes back, to the second generation owners who NOW want tons of IONS. to the current Saturn owners who like their "steel" Saturns, I am GLAD to have this opportunity to participate with what we ALL are; SATURN FANS.

I sell Saturns and my job has really been hurt by GM's decisions. Several of my family members, in Michigan have been out of work and may end up losing their homes. So.. I know what is like to wait for announcements.

What IMO is poor taste, is for you to post this here instead of E-Mailing Charlie.

This site takes up many hours for Charlie and if I was Charlie, I would just shut it down. Charlie has a full time job and if you look at the times he posts/updates items here, you would think he has a clone.

In conclusion, Charlie is JUST a SaturnFan who has created this site for those of us who are also fans of Saturn.

Wow...seeing people's true colors show now...

Personally, I'm looking forward to this virtual meetup.

To those of you who are pissed off about it , go cry in your car to make yourself feel better.

Charlie decided to do this to bring back something that was special the first time around (Granted I wasn't on here when the "First" Saturnfest took place.)

If you don't like the idea, at least take the time to send a Private Message to Charlie instead of making yourself look like an immature ass on the forum.

Charlie didn't HAVE to do this...he CHOSE to do this for US.

At least have some respect for an idea, instead of just saying that the idea itself was in "poor taste". Yeah I don't see that it is in poor taste..the idea is there to help the community of owners here become more of a tight nit group. If you don't like the idea, no one is forcing you to participate; but don't ruin it for the others here that would like something like this.

Who are the music groups playing?

I thought Saturn had Bon Jovi in there payroll and if I remember didn't they also sponsor the Goo Goo Dolls 2003 tour as part of the ION start up?

It would be cool to have a live chat with these bands.

Also will Saturn get together with Omaha Steaks and send me some food to grill on the big day?

I thought that it was something to do with Saturn itself. I didn't see the disclaimer yesterday. But I think that since Charlie went through so much trouble to do this, we should appreciate it. For those of you who said that it was "stupid" and ou're not coming, so what. Get over it and move on. Like I said before in the VUE forum, if you don't like whats on, change the channel. It's not like this is real life, it's the internet. I completely forgot about the "breaking news" until today. There's more to life then wondering what's the next big thing to happen with Saturn.

So Charlie, thank you for Saturnfest. I wasn't here for the last one but I'm interested in seeing how you worked it out, so yes, I'll be there to satisfy my curiousity. I'm going to clay and wax the VUE and dress it up for the event.

Too bad there won't be an actual Saturn Homecoming. I would drive cross-country for that and to have a few beers with some of the posters here. Maybe even ask our Canadian members to bring some of their higher-proof brew down
