Coming Soon: Wicked Big Meet 2009

Wicked Big Meet 2009

It’s that time of year again! Wicked Big Meet 2009 is upon us, and I’m already beginning to count down the hours.

For those of you who don’t know, Wicked Big Meet (WBM) takes place out on the East Coast in Massachusetts every year, and is the largest gathering of Subaru’s in the United States. In 2007, WBM featured over 1,100 Subaru’s. This year for 2009, we’re aiming high, hoping to hit 2,000 cars, and going for the official Guinness record too.

The day consists of several activities including things from raffles and vendors, to technical sessions and car shows. (Although if you ask me, I don’t see the point of the car show, as the entire parking lot is one in itself)

The following features have been highlighted for this year’s event:

  • Thousands of Subaru’s and Subaru Enthusiasts
  • Huge Vendor Midway
  • Car Show
  • Rally and Race Car Expose
  • Technical Tuning Seminars
  • WBM Famous Prize Raffle
  • New England Subaru Club DJs
  • AWD Mobile Dyno
  • WBM Scavenger Hunt
  • Official Guinness Record for Subaru Meet

The event is put on by New England Subaru Club Inc. WBM 2008 did not take place, as volunteers were few and therefore, the immense amount of planning could not continue and was put on hold. I actually worked as a volunteer for the 2007 event, and I must admit, it’s quite a task to plan an event such as this, even if it’s only 1 day.

WBM 09 is sharing the same event site as it did in 2007, Wachusett Mountain Ski Area, located in Princeton, MA. (About a good hour outside of Boston) The event is taking place this weekend on Sunday, June 14, 2009. I will be attending the event this weekend myself, and will be taking plenty of pictures. Expect a new blog post after Sunday, with pictures from the event.

So, not sure what you’re up to this weekend? If you’re in the New England area, I highly suggest making the trip out. Trust me; it will be worth the drive, as you’ll see some pretty cool stuff. Not to mention, people will be coming from all over the country to attend WBM. But please, don’t forget the camera!
