President's Message

Alfisti,

Winter is now upon us, however the Club is still moving forward with a variety of activities organised by key members. These include Competition, Displays, Drives and Social events.

The major event for the month of May was the Club's Annual Awards Night. This was held at the Veneto Club after the usual monthly Club Night meeting. Food and drink were supplied in a relaxed atmosphere as a lead up to the awards presentation hosted by our Vice President Bruno Colautti. The night was well attended with Leon Cottle assisting Mary Colautti with photography, and our Patron, David Wright, assisting in the presentation. Thanks to all award and trophy winners for their contribution to the Club.

The month's activities started with the Sandown Super Sprint (Round 2) with midday parade laps.

Mid-month was the Goldfields Chapter's Drive to Summerfield Winery in the Pyrenees, via a mid-morning stop at the Talbot Farmers' Market. An unprecedented number of members attended this event (see Leon's report below), while on the same day was a Club Drive to M-O-V-E near Shepparton.

In June, the first activity will be the Strada Veloce Tour in Gippsland based in Bairnsdale. This will include day drives to Maffra and Marlo.

June Club Night will be on Wednesday 12th. Club Nights are held at the Veneto Club in Bulleen and commence at 8:00pm. Check the web site for details. I look forward to seeing you at Club Night.

A New Members' Breakfast will be held on Sunday 16th June at Brunetti Classico in Lygon Street and the following week we have Sim Racing in Keysborough.

Further planning has taken place and a tentative booking has now been made for our annual Spettacolo Show & Shine and Concorso, with new Preservation and Modified classes. But more on that soon.

The revised website and Membership Portal is now well established and has been most successful. Our PR manager, Carlo Santoro, has reviewed our Facebook account and will update us on future changes.

I would also like to welcome three Club members who have recently volunteered their assistance:

Joseph Millwood is our new ClubShop manager and can be contacted via email: ClubShop@AlfaClubVic.org.au

Paul Augello is our new Advertising manager and can be contacted via email:
Advertising@AlfaClubVic.org.au

Gerard Heijden will be looking after the Club Archive and Historical Documentation.

However, we are still seeking volunteers to act as Register Captains for the:
939 Register (159, Brera & Spider)
GTA Register (147, 156 & Giulia GTAs & GTAm)
Please contact me if you would like to assist with one of these roles, or if you would like to volunteer to help with planning a Sunday Drive, Club activity or help out at Club Competition events.

 

 

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

President, AROCA Victoria
