President's Message

Alfisti,

Welcome to 2024; I would like to wish all members a prosperous new year. Hopefully 2024 will be a follow-on from the positive results from last year with a full and well-balanced calendar for all members with Club Sprints and Competition events, Club Displays, Sunday Drives and Social events all over the next few months.

It will also be an exciting year for AROCA Victoria, as it is our turn to host Alfesta. Alfesta is a notable event for any Division and this year is again AROCA Victoria's turn to host Alfesta; this time at Lakes Entrance in Gippsland over the Easter break.

Meanwhile, members are reminded that they are free to participate in any of the Club's Register activities or Sunday Drives, regardless of which Register they nominally belong to, or which Register is actually organising the event. While you are welcome to join any of these events, you are not obliged to also stay for the lunch. When booking to join a drive, please ensure that you advise whether or not you are also booking for lunch.

2024 will be a great year with a broad range of events which are detailed below. Before heading out though, check the calendar on the Club website for updates and new events.

NB: February Club Night is one week later than normal as it will held be on Wednesday 21st, but still at the Veneto Club in Bulleen. … check the website for details.

Also in February we have a Club event on every Sunday!

On the 4th is the Classic and Historic Car Show @ Pantry Fresh in Clayton; That's THIS weekend!

On the 11th are the Mirboo North Italian Festa and the Goldfields Chapter's Drive to Kyneton (but you probably can't do both);

On the 18th is Auto Bella at Yarra Glen Racecourse. This year Auto Bella is being held in conjunction with the British and European Car Show. Fiat will be celebrating their 125th anniversary, while Mercedes Benz will be celebrating the Pagoda's 60th.

On the 25th you have a choice of the Cuore Sportivo Drive to Central Victoria or the Sandown Sprints

 

AROCA Victoria is hosting ALFESTA 2024 at Lakes Entrance in the Gippsland Lakes over Easter (28th March to 1st April). Details are here: https://www.alfesta2024.net/ Bookings are already close to capacity so if you want to attend you'll need to register pronto! Get in touch with the Alfesta Team ASAP to avoid disappointment.

The Post Alfesta Tour (aka Alfisti Autumn Tour) commences in Lakes Entrance on the 1st April – at the conclusion of Alfesta – and arrives in Canberra on 5th April, in time to attend Auto Italia.
The Tour runs via the Victorian Alps and the Snowy Mountains. 


Otherwise

Check the calendar on the Club's website for new and updated events. You will also find information on Club events on the Club's Facebook page, and in the Club's quarterly magazine Cross + Serpent.

 

Stay safe & well, 

John Hanslow
