    The gents over at Rockyview Motorsports Park have been hard at work making progress on their project and have invited us to a presentation to give us their latest updates.

    We hope you can join, and they ask that you please RSVP them directly via marketing@rockyviewmotorsports.com to help anticipate the number of attendees.

    They also ask that you bring one non-perishable food item for the Calgary Food Bank.

    See you all there!

    Save the date for this historic event! Join the FCA for a Show and Shine, the official opening event of the new airport tunnel, on Saturday, May 24 between 11am – 2pm.

    Mayor Nenshi will be saying a few words at noon and cars from various clubs will be on display inside the Airport Trail tunnel! The sound is going to be awesome! There will be a stage featuring a number of entertainers and a number of food trucks on hand so it will be fun event for the family as well.

    Thursday April 24th, 7:00pm-9:00pm

    After the success of last year's Tech Night with Mobile Solutions, a good number of you asked if we could do another. I'm pleased to say that Larry and the good folks on his team have made it happen!

    The driving season is right on our doorstep and after talking with Larry, it looks like a lot of new technology has been introduced since our last session. So before you blow out your fuse panel trying to install that CRAIG cassette deck you salvaged from your '87 Cutlass, or you glue tin-foil to your front bumper because you think it will jam police radar guns, join us on Thursay April 24th from 7-9pm to learn about the following:

    - How Speed Enforcement and prevention really works
    - A review of easy and effective audio upgrades
    - Introduction of the Escort 9500CI Enhanced radar detector
    - Any questions you can possibly whip up, Larry will answer!

    Being a valued FCA sponsor, snacks and beverages will be served, and if the weather is any good, I'm sure a few of us will be using it as an excuse to get our cars out for the evening!

    Our very popular evening local Cars & Coffee kicks off with a perfect evening. All euro marques are welcome. The FCA, PCA, and other European car clubs and enthusiasts meet at the Marda Loop Safeway parking lot in Calgary from 7-9pm every Tuesday night (weather permitting). There are some very rare cars that come out most evenings like this Kurtis! Its not the biggest car show in Calgary but it is certainly the one with the best cars on a regular basis.

    Every year, the Vintage Sports Car Club of Calgary hosts a huge car show in Stanley Park. This was our 5th year attending the show and every year our club display draws a lot of spectators.

    We started judging and awarding our own FCA trophies last year and it was a huge hit. This year we upped the ante by having the winning owners roll up in front the spectators to accept their trophy. As you can imagine this drew a massive crowd.

    August graced us with three perfect weather evenings for Cars & Coffee. We had great attendance and the crowd of regular spectators steadily increased. Everyone was rewarded with a constant flow of pretty unique cars.

    Euro Cars & Coffee takes place every Tuesday night in Calgary at the Marda Loop Safeway from 7-9pm from the first Tuesday in June to the first Tuesday in October!

    The weather has been so awesome that we started the event 6 weeks early in April! And the response has been tremendous with some very interesting cars. We know there is even better stuff that is still in your garages so we are eager to see it for the first time!

    I know it snowed this morning but the weather is looking great on Tuesday night! You never know what is going to show up!

    Euro Cars & Coffee is every Tuesday night (weather permitting) from 7-9pm in Calgary at the Marda Loop Safeway. See you there!

    Pictures from every week are posted on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/FCAAlberta/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums)
    and on Instagram (@fca_alberta)

    As always, bring your pride and joy out of storage to join us! The street will be blocked off and parking will be reserved on the street exclusively for the club. If you’ve acquired some new hardware recently, we’d love to see it!

    There is limited reserved parking on 8th Ave, and this popular event is sold out every year!

    For those of you who never have visited the Reynolds Alberta Museum, an upcoming event will present you with an opportunity to visit one of Alberta's best-kept secrets.

    On June 13th and 14th, the museum will be hosting the 2015 edition of HISTORY ROAD and the Ferrari Club of America - Alberta Chapter members will gather in Wetaskiwin on Saturday, June 13th to represent the marque.

    This annual celebration of the automobile has a goal of having at least one car manufactured in each year of the past century. This event is expected to draw more than 500 participants from across western Canada. More importantly, it will give FCA members spread thoughout the province a chance to meet and share their passion for the rolling sculptures from Maranello. FCA members will be parked together in an area reserved for car clubs.

    The host venue offers a double-barrelled attraction:
    1. The Reynolds - Alberta Museum, a world class museum devoted to technology, and
    2. The Canadian Aviation Hall of Fame.

    For an overview of the Reynolds - Alberta Museum, go to: Reynolds-Alberta Museum

    To register, click the following link, print out the PDF and fax it to the museum. There is an entrance fee of $15 for adults and $12 for seniors.

    http://history.alberta.ca/reynolds/specialevents/docs/Reynolds-History-Road-Registration-2014.pdf

    Also, please e-mail George Pendlebury (gbpendlebury@shaw.ca) to advise of your intention to participate. With this information, the local organizers will be able to provide you with additional information as it becomes available.

    I just want to make a post here about inviting Ferrarista's and their partners to a dinner I have organized. This is not affiliated with the FCA, but there will be a lot of FCA members going and it is more about socializing and enjoying a great evening together amongst great people.

    The event will be at Oceana Restaurant in Calgary's Eau Claire district Friday, December 11, 2015 at 7:00PM. All are invited and welcome to attend.

    I would need to know how many in your party would be attending, preferably by Dec. 4th or sooner. The menu will be a set menu with 4 different selections of foods to choose from as well as appetizers.

    If you would like any further details, please contact me directly at frandom@shaw.ca or my cell at 403-660-5525
