Until the early 90s, The Northwest SAAB Owners
Club had but one (non-elected) "officer", The Keeper of
the Mailing List. Historically, we've been a word-of-mouth, once-a-year-meeting
kind of club. Not that we can't stand each other, in fact many members
do see each other often during the year.
In 1980, united by an announcement in the National
SAAB Club newsletter (now NINES), a half dozen enthusiasts gathered
in eastern Washington for a 2-stroke crankshaft workshop held by
John Baird. The rest is history, as they say, the group grew, meeting
once or twice annually, for the next 10 years.
