PITTSBURGH, PA.

The Club has over a weeks worth of events planned including trips to historic Frank Lloyd Wright landmarks, rally tours, a parade into the City of Pittsburgh, which includes a display at the headwaters of the Ohio, and a weekend at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix's Cortile Italian Car Show.

There are 10 days of Alfa Romeo related events happening for the 2019 Alfa Romeo Owners Club convention.

The pre-convention activities start at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Historic Races at Pitt Race where there will be historic and vintage Alfa's on the Track. There will also be several Pre- Convention tours which will visit some of Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic architecture and other historic landmarks in Western Pennsylvania all the while stretching the legs of the Alfa Romeo's on the byways of the Laurel Highlands.

The Convention itself kicks off on Tuesday 16 July with the AROC board meeting followed by a meet and greet at the Ember & Vine located inside the host hotel, the Doubletree Hilton in Cranberry Township, PA.

On Wednesday morning, July 17, Alfa Romeo's will parade through the City of Pittsburgh and then be on display at Point State Park, where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers meet to form the headwaters of the Ohio River. Alfa Romeo owners will take an afternoon tour around the city in vintage 'Duck Boats". The six-wheel-drive amphibious DUKW's, built in 1944 and 1945, will get in the water and offer a preview of the Tune Up Party location that attendees to the convention will enjoy that evening.

On Thursday, convention participants will enjoy a day at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex for on track "Time Trial" as well as Autocross and some competitive karting amongst CLub members. The event culminates that event at Jergels, starting for with a tech session at Indian Motorcylces of Pittsburgh covering Tuning for the 4C and then moving acrorss the parking lot and up to the VIP Suites at Jergels to be entertained by Three Car Garage.

Saturday Evening will be capped of with a banquet for Alfa Romeo Club members at the Doubletree Hilton with vocalist Jessica Lee, who also has a unique role in the preservation of Pittsurgh's Blue and Jazz history.

The Convention culminates Sunday with the main event: racing! Racing is what made Alfa Romeo became famous over 100 years ago!

I have my hotel reservations and Convention events planned! With Alfa as the honored marque for the PVGP, this will surely be one fantastic event! Looking forward to the new Giulia and 4C performance tuning Tech Sessions.

If possible, I hope to find a bulletin board near registration where I can post a note to perhaps have a meet-up for alfabb, giuliaforums, and other forum members.

More importantly, I should point-out that you DO NOT have to be a member of the Alfa Romeo Owner's Club to attend the Convention. This will be a gathering of Vintage and newer Alfas and other Sports Cars like no other, on the East Coast. Not to be missed!

Actaully, to atttend any of the AROC Convention activities membership is required. However, at the Cortile, Italian Car show of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, other Italian marques will be parking on the adjoining showfield and be lunching both days with the AROC members inside the Pittsburgh Golf Club on Saturday and at the "Wine on 9" trackside VIP area of Turn 9 on Sunday.

Let me know when you might want to do that. I can plug in a slot on the website. I might suggest Thursday Evening at Jergels Rhythm Grille. We could get people together somewhere in the parking lot... perhaps before or after the Eurocompulsion Tech Session, at the Indian Motorcycle Dealer (Jergels Parking Lot) or on the outside patio of Jergels. Let me know. Happy to plug it into the schedule
