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.

Belmont Rifle Range, Old Cleveland Road, Belmont
2019 Macleans Bridge Car Show - Hosted by the Triumph Sports Owners Association, this is possibly Queensland's biggest classic car event, typically involving around 400 cars from many different marques. Entry is $15.00 per display car which included driver and all passengers. Gates open for display cars at 7.30am, 9.00am for visitors, awards ceremony will be at midday. On site caterers have been organised and there will be three coffee vans from early morning for those of you desperate on your caffeine fix as soon as your arrive. Food vans will also be serving breakfast rolls from gate opening time in case you did not have time for breakfast prior to departure. To avoid the queues at the gates, we urge visitors to pre-register and pay for entry during the weeks prior to the event. Those who pre-register will be sent a form to display on their dash as they drive in to the range and then proceed through the preregistered lane thus avoiding those waiting to pay at the gate. Pre-registration also gives the organisers an idea of how many cars are attending from specific clubs and ensure that there is sufficient parking allocated so the club members can park together. Pre-registration forms can be downloaded from the MacLean’s Bridge website. This year the classes for judging the cars has changed and also note that only cars displaying a “field judging card” on their dash will be judged for an award. Cards will be handed out in the pack at the gate or can be downloaded from the website. Once again proceeds from this event are going to assist Orange Sky with washing and showering facilities for the homeless. [➠ Macleans Bridge Website]
