Calendar - Club Social Events

The Club offers a variety of social activities for members who enjoy hitting the open road in their Alfas - or simply enjoy the company of other Alfisti. Activities range from restaurant evenings to extended week-ends away in the country. Occassionally, a social outing will coincide with the opportunity for members to display their pride and joy at a classic car show or other display.

Lido Italia, Cambridge Parade, Manly
New Year's Dinner - In past years, we've started the year with a night run following a dinner. But to be honest, the run was never as good as the dinner! So this year, we decided to start the year with another dinner at Lido Italia at Manly, which was so well enjoyed last year! I'll book for 30, so it's the first 30 in who will get to go! And as we won't be doing a run, I'll book for 7pm.
