June 7, 2014: 7th Annual Swedish Day at IKEA

Post by volvie! on Thu Apr 10, 2014 2:21 pm

Hello everyone!

You are invited to join us for the 7th Annual Swedish Day at IKEA on June 7th at 10:00A.

All Swedes and their Volvos and Saabs are welcome!

If you have yet to have the pleasure of attending this event, it is a very informal friendly event where Swedish cars and their owners (who may or may not be Swedish) gather in the parking lot of IKEA, near the entrance door (around row D, see the map below) and we mingle and chat the morning away until we feel the pangs of hunger and head upstairs to the second floor to purchase our lunches from the IKEA restaurant and move into the reserved conference room for a leisurely lunch.

Lunch will be followed by our mid-year planning session to discuss the events of the last half of the year-- come and join us if you have an idea or would like to participate!

Meeting location:
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/store/west_sacramento
IKEA
700 IKEA Court
West Sacramento, CA 95605

Hi Everyone,

Some quick reminders:

1. If your route takes you over West-Bound HWY 50, remember that the "Fix 50" Project is underway.
You may need to factor this into your drive time.
Current project details/route information can be found here:
http://fix50.com/

2. The weather is forecast to be hot.
Be sure to bring water, put on your sunscreen / wear protective clothing.

3. At previous events, a number of people have expressed interest in trying IKEA's breakfast (you must cover the cost of your own breakfast).
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/departments/food/
(As noted above, we will also be having IKEA lunch with the Planning Meeting-- you must cover the cost of your own meal.)

Hope to see you there!

Take care,
volvie!
