Yes, thank you! I saw the Swedespeed forums, with the details on Cross Plains.

We're in Fort Worth, so we'd be interested in any meets/get togethers within a reasonable drive.

Please keep us posted if there will also be an event at Park Place Volvo.

We bought out XC70 from Autobahn Volvo in Fort Worth - it would be nice if they could host an event from time to time, as well.

Cross Plains is a "GO"!...

...and so is the Nov 10, 2012 Dallas Meet...

Sounds like a good time - thank you for organizing this event! Hope there will be a good turnout.

I'm going to try to make it out there on Saturday. We recently got a puppy, so my wife is staying home for this one.

I'll check back on Friday night.

George - Hope you guys had a good turnout on Saturday in Cross Plains. I wasn't able to make it out there, but my wife and I are still planning on going to the Dallas meet in November. (much closer for us!)

Please post pictures, if they're available. Sorry I couldn't participate this time.
