Summer Events Update

Below is an update of our upcoming events.  I hope to see you at one, or more.

July 11th – David Markel Car Collection Tour and Lunch – Skippack, PA If you haven’t visited one of David Markel’s many garages, you need to attend this event.  We’ll meet at the Wawa (Corner of Hwy 113 and Skippack Pike) at 10 AM. We’ll tour 5 different Museums (that are different from last year). Cost will be $25.00 per person (cash please / pay at the door).  If you are interested, lunch is also available for another $20. Attendance is limited to about 30 people, so sign up now!  To register, send an email to Steve

July 25th – Summer Picnic and Rally – Ridley Creek State Park, PA Join us for our annual summer picnic and rally at Ridley Creek State Park.   We’ll start at Ridley Creek State Park, Picnic Area #8 (our usual place, but no pavilion this time) at 10:30 am.  The event will include a fun rally, which should take less than an hour to complete, followed by a picnic in the park.  You’ll have a chance to show off your car, demonstrate your navigation skills, and enjoy some good food and friends.  After everyone arrives, we’ll go over the rally instructions and then have a Le Mans style start.  The rally will take participants through some very pretty Chester County horse country. The course is designed to make for fun competition that won’t reward use of GPS or following another car. The rally course will take less than an hour to complete.  Once everyone is safely back to the park, we’ll enjoy some lunch together.  Picnic lunches – hoagies, salads and drinks will be provided.  The club will pick up the costs for members.  For non-members, we’d like a $10 donation to defray the costs.  If you want to attend, please RSVP to Bob by Friday, July 23rd so we can plan food and hand-outs, accordingly.

August 15th – New Hope Auto Show – New Hope, PA The wonderful New Hope Auto Show is on!  This is one of the only shows I know of that has a dedicated Alfa Romeo class.  For more information and registration, go to: New Hope Auto Show
