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. Occasionally, a social outing will coincide with the opportunity for members to display their pride and joy at a classic car show or other display. The Club's insurance coverage for events is provided by Motorsport Australia. Members' family, potential Club members and non-members may attend Club events, however it is the Club's policy that they sign an Event Disclaimer and Indemnity acknowledging that they participate at their own risk and indemnifying the Club, Committee and Members against all or any claims, suits, actions, demands and costs from injury or damage.

Stanthorpe
Stanthorpe Food and Wine Weekend - Weekend - 7–9 October. Thanks to Steve and Di Jones we will be having the very popular Stanthorpe Food and Wine Weekend this year! This was always a popular weekend with lots of fun, food and wine. Planning so far includes a welcome dinner at Michael and Daniella Heeremans’ place, a proposed visit to Girraween National Park for a walk, some great breakfasts, lunches and dinners plus visits to wineries and other local providores. Steve and Di have spoken with the Apple & Grape Motel and they have set aside 12 rooms for the Alfa Club weekend. Club members will need to make bookings directly with the Motel for the weekend 7–8 October and should say they are part of the Alfa group, and Helen there says she will give them her best rate. Helen is on (07) 4681 1288. Arrangements with various cafés, restaurants and other establishments for dining and activities on the weekend are in progress and will be published as available. And whilst the organised activities are just over the weekend, for those who can why not stay on and do some travelling – Stanthorpe is close to Ballandean, and if you shoot east you hit beautiful Lennox Heads, south is Tenterfield, west is Goondiwindi, and north is Cairns (yeah, you’re right, that’s a bit far). Remember that the country towns have done it tough, so include an esky to carry home any comestible purchases you make. I know that we stop at the Sutton’s Juice Factory & Cidery on the way home and get our annual supply of Apple Cider and Vinegar. And a piece of their “Famous Apple Pie”. Definitely looking forward to catching up with everyone.
