CANCELLED – RAIN-out! Volvo Car Lovers Get-together Meridian Texas Saturday April 6, 2019.

Volvo Car Lovers Get-together Meridian Texas Saturday April 6, 2019.

Open to all interested parties. No RSVP needed for this Volvo meeting.

Assembly begins at 10am at Zur Autobahn German Restaurant on Hwy 22…

https://www.zurautobahn.com/

Fri-Sat - lunch served from 11:30am to 2pm. Dinner served W T F S from 5pm to 8:30 pm.

To dine at Zur Autobahn you must make reservations via email before Thursday, April 4, 2019. Email Kornelia (Conny) at kdsedlmaier at gmail dot com.

Share that you are with the Volvo Folks and remember that they are closed from 2pm to 5pm.

Conny is the one-woman wonder worker who manages all the doings at the café. She has reliable help for busy times but needs to plan ahead for larger parties.

If you are in the Meridian/Whitney area and find yourself too hungry to wait for the best German food in Texas at Zur Autobahn visit the Texas Great Country Café in Whitney on Hwy 22 at FM 933.

This eatery is also our backup assembly location on the slim possibility that Zur Autobahn is closed or has a packed house…

Looking for some non-Volvo activity? Visit the Meridian State Park on Hwy 22 just up from Zur Autobahn. Five dollars gets you entry, swimming, hiking, birding and fishing (no license required).

It's gonna be the 240 since we're camping the night before & after.
The 1800es doesn't quite fit the bill for sleeping two plus a dog.

MPORTANT UPDATE!

The restroom facilities at Zur Autobahn are limited and not available until 11:30am Saturday.

The nearest public restroom facilities are at the Meridian State Park (4 miles northeast of Zur Autobahn on Hwy 22) but be aware that the Park may be closed due to over-crowding.

Assembly begins at 10am at Zur Autobahn German Restaurant on Hwy 22 seven miles southwest of downtown Meridian.

See y'all there!

Thanks.

My weather bug says 50% chance of rain Saturday. Just checking to see if we are still on for the meet. Coming from Athens with Mandy... Arnold McCoy.

Fifty percent chance of boomers predicted five days in in advance using the same computer models that nudged me to cancel a meet in Little River (80 percent) back in the Spring of '18. It never rained.
We are a go Saturday CHOHW!

See y'all at Zur Autobahn!

That didn't stop the PSVSA guys from having a meet here in the Seattle area. Rain? No big deal.

The restaurant owner said it was a long drive for George. I'd imagine he's driving a 1800 too so rain's a fair reason not to convene.

Also, these Texas storms are no joke, not like the usual PNW drizzle. Tornadoes and golf ball to baseball sized hail are possible and probable this time of year. Welcome to tornado alley
