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.

Queensland Raceway, Willowbank
Festival of Italian Motorsport Show and Shine and Happy Laps - Held as part of the Festival of Italian Motorsport (FOIM) at Queensland Raceway, Willowbank on Sunday 17 September, the Show 'n Shine provides an opportunity for owners of Italian vehicles to engage in some friendly competition off the track! Happy Laps at lunch for people that are not competing to get up and close with the race track from a unique prospective. We encourage all Show 'n Shine or club members to take part in the happy laps as it is a fantastic way to show support for our clubs and to other potential members there over the weekend (Passengers are welcome). [See the event webpage for more details]. Note: tickets for both the Show 'n Shine and Happy Laps must be purchased on-line through the T124 website.

Spencer Park, Newmarket
Festitalia 2017 - Festitalia is Queensland's Official Italian Festival and is a community-based event involving Italian associations, businesses and not-for-profit organisations. Come along to enjoy a wonderful cultural and social experience showcasing Italian style, food and creativity. In 2016, our club (along with the Fiat car Club) displayed a small number of cars and we will be returning to Festitalia in 2017. This is one of our more enjoyable car display opportunities as the festival itself is great fun and there is plenty to do and see while your car is on show. Over 30 food stalls will tempt your tastebuds, and you can partake of a glass or two of fine wine or beer while watching the varied entertainment on stage. If you are interested in being part of this year's display, contact the Social Secretary (0416 171 773 - social@arocaqld.com) as soon as possible. You must do so before 30th September so we can let the organisers know how much space they have to allocate to us. One advantage of displaying your car is you also get free entry into the event. [See the event webpage for more details].

Bocce Courts, Spencer Park, Newmarket
Alfa-Fiat Bocce Challenge - This annual event sees teams from AROCA compete against teams from the FIAT Club of Queensland for the privilege of being custodian of a handsome perpetual trophy jointly sponsored by Avanti Spares and APF Motors. While the FIAT Club is considered our sister organisation - united in a shared love of fine Italian motor vehicles - this doesn't prevent the Bocce Challenge being fiercely contested each year! All AROCA and FIAT club members are invited to participate. Age (our youngest player has been 7) or ability is no barrier, as coaching and hints are provided by professional Bocce players. The excellent Bocce courts used for the competition are located adjacent to Spencer Park, Newmarket. Food and drinks will be provided, courtesy of the Fiat Club. The evening kicks off at 6:30pm. Enter via the Foster Street carpark of the International City Church.
