It s been a while since I posted anything in this spot. A number of changes hit my family which have taken priority.

Spring is upon us so it s time to pull the dust cover and put the cars back on the road.

Two weeks ago the Wisconsin Chapter hosted its New Glarus Hill Climb which was a great success. Ideal weather coupled with some great cars made it an exceptional weekend. From a Rolls to John Saccameno s Lotus 7 all had a great time running up the hill. Wayne Seely, in his GTV hit the first right hand turn so fast and spooled up so much dust you could almost hear the William Tell Overture and  high ho silver, away. Whether you go for the day or weekend it’s worth the time. View the Gallery

We also have much more coming up this summer.

This coming week, on the 21st we have our regular meeting at Avanti in Mount Prospect. Come joins us and see what s going on. But after that we have much to do.
On June 6th we have our outing to the slick track at the Sugar Grove Family Fun Center in beautiful Sugar Grove, Illinois. If you are not into driving they also have miniature golf, water balloon slingshots and enough video games to drive even the sanest person nuts.
In July, on the Thursday preceding the 4th we have our annual Blackhawk Farms Track day. This always proves to be a great day so come to drive, come to help or come to hang around. We re always looking for volunteers.
And, not to be forgotten we have our annual picnic coming up on August 9, at Barbara Key Park in Lake In The Hills. The picnic always produces a great display of our cars. We plan a pig roast as before so mark your calendars. If you want to help out drop Barb Carroll a note, I m sure she would appreciate it.

Though not necessarily a CAROC event we also have The Hawk International Challenge with Brian Redman coming up at Road America July 16 to the 19th. It s always great to see some ALFAs there.

Over the last couple weeks I have received inquires from different people looking to sell and looking to buy cars. One person looking to sell an 86 Spider Veloce, a person looking to buy a 91-94 Spider and somebody looking for a red Duetto in top condition. If you know any matches let me know and I ll forward relevant contact information.

If you have a thought for an outing drop me a note.
