Central Indiana Alfa Owners

Carm,

Do you know that the Central Indiana Alfa Owners also call themselves CIAO? In fact, so does the Colonial Italian American Organization. I applaud your efforts, but it might be a bit confusing for many regional Alfisti.

Cheers,
'Alex' Sandor Csank

Interesting, in fact what's more interesting is new Williamsburg CIAO leadership evidently is wondering why we haven't been back to their festival, I vaguely remember old leadership stating they didn't have room for us at their current festival location. Who is on first is a continual question isn't it?

Hi Alex / Steve,

Yes, I am aware that many organizations around the world (especially Italia) use the CIAO abbreviation. CIAO-Charities from Italian Automobile Owners is NOT a registered name nor does it intend to create confusion with other local / midwestern / national "Registered" organizations.

CIAO is a point of reference and helps to identify local events in the Chicagoland areas. Matter of fact, if you goggle CIAO & charities, first thing that comes up are the events we have put together in the last 6 months. The reason many people like myself do not know much about the "Central Indiana Alfa Owners" speaks for itself.

"CIAO" as in Charities from Italian Automobile Owners would be a problem if we became a registered member with AROC. Since there is NO direct association (with exception that many participating donors happen to be CAROC members) with the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, I don't see how any of this affects regional Alfisti.

CIAO is a great expression used and recognized by most cultures. I just hope that many car enthusiasts find $10 to put into an envelope in lieu of simply buying expensive gas.

CIAO,
Carm

L'Alfista
