We have something special planned for the April 8th meeting at Angelo's in Bellevue. Our speaker will be David Sova a local artist and architect. When not dealing with his day job of designing buildings, David paints beautiful pictures of his favorite ALFAs and other related automotive subjects. Those of you that attended last September's meeting may remember Shana Blum (the wheel lady) intro- duced us to some of his artwork. David is a former ALFA owner with an appreciative eye for automotive beauty. Come share some time with David and hear what inspires his work. Maybe he can do a painting of your favorite Alfa Romeo.
When: April 8th 6:30 PM—9:00 PM (social, dine, meet)
Where: Angelo’s Restaurant 1830 130th Ave Ne, Bellevue, WA 98005
After David's presentation we should have ample time for discussing matters relating to the 50th birthday party, the AROO joint drive and recent developments at our local Alfa Romeo dealers.
Make your plans now to attend the MG Car Club’s 34th annual Tulip Rallye on April 25th! Reschedule anything in the way and plan to start from the Skagit Valley Mall in Burling- ton and wander the scenic roads of Skagit County. Along the way, answer the gimmick questions, stay on course, and enjoy the great variety of cars, including Alfa Romeos. The competition is fun, but tough amongst friends and family. Sign up online or fill out the registration form from the latest Iniezione and mail it in. Then plan to have fun!
Hopefully you took the advice given in the January Iniezione and re- served the weekend of May 16-17 for the AROO-NWARC Tour. Further discussion with the planner for the Oregon chapter has ensued and we decided that limiting this first event to two days might encourage more participation from both chapters. We anticipate beginning the tour mid- morning on Saturday (May 16), south of Chehalis, near the intersection of I-5 and US-12 (exit 68). We will head east on US-12 and, depending upon conditions, will divert to Chinook Pass or continue on US-12 to Canyon Rd. toward Ellensburg. There will be ample opportunity for potty stops, socializing, as well as lunch along the way. Later on Satur- day we’ll be finding some nice roads east of Ellensburg and then head to our lodging in time for some socializing, hap- py hour and then on to dinner and more socializing. Do you get the idea that this is an opportunity for members of two of AROC’s largest chapters to mingle and get to know each other better? Accommodation rates are yet to be finalized, but there will be an electronic announcement in the future, as well as notice given in the Iniezione.
On Sunday, AROO folks will head south on a route their planners will design. I intend to head back toward the Seattle metropolitan area via Blewett and Stevens Passes.
Additionally, I expect to take backroads on Friday and reserve a motel room in the Chehalis area to allow a more leisurely Saturday morning before getting to the meeting place. Please let me know if you are interested in knowing what route I will be taking and at which motel I will be bunking on Friday.
I would appreciate hearing from people who plan to participate so we can have a better idea of numbers for lunch, dinner, motel, etc. in advance of finalizing plans. If you have questions, and/or wish to be notified as plans are finalized, please or call 425-241-9307.
