ICCSW Annual After-Holiday Dinner Report
The Olive Garden - Grapevine, Texas
January 14th, 2017

Our Annual January Dinner: A Smashing Success!! We had a terrific social evening at the cocktail hour and dinner on Saturday at the Olive Garden in Grapevine. For those of you who attended, most with spouses and significant others, we thank you for coming and making the party so much fun! For those of you who could not make it, let me share some highlights of the evening.
Folks began showing up right after 6:00 pm, some of us we're there right at six! The cocktail hour gave us all a chance to socialize and talk to everyone, some old friends, some 'new' friends. Being in a private room, conversation was a joy! We've missed being able to do that for a few years. The cocktail hour is a permanent part of the evening from here forward as is the private room!
We began the dinner with Randy welcoming everyone and then moving right to election of officers for 2017. Randy then went to our fabulous door prizes, yes, as in two door prizes! The wait staff assisted and drew names for the occasion.
The first, "Cars, Cars and More Cars" - consisted of a coffee table book Cars: A Celebration by Quentin Willson, the animated movie Cars; and a CD: Just What I Needed: The Cars Anthology by the band The Cars. Kevin Burns won this one.
The second, "An Italian Dinner For Two" – consisted of imported Italian pasta, sauce, wine, Italian olive oil and more! I think you get the point. This was won by Bob Dezzany.
Thanks to all who could join us at the event!. E 'stato fantastico, con un buon tempo aveva da tutti! We'll see you all next year!

Club Drive to Tara Vineyard and Winery
Athens, Texas
May 21st, 2016

We had an exciting meeting this month at the Tara Vineyard & Winery in Athens,
with 7 members in attendance....plus spouses and partners and guests....and Tracy Curtin's mom, Terry. Kathy Young and her friend Shelley represented the DFW Fiat Club. Jeff Briggs did a fine job making all the arrangements. We enjoyed wine tasting, an excellent lunch and a winery tour. Jeff's son Chris got everyone underway with a hearty "All Aboard!", upon which Jeff lead the highway contingent in his rare 164 and Jim Puri lead the remainder on the winding road route in his gorgeous 4C. The drive out was excellent with outstanding weather throughout the day. A good time was had by all!

Keels & Wheels 2016
April 23 - 24, 2016
Lakewood Yacht Club
Seabrook, Texas

Two of our club members won awards at this most prestigious event. Val Herrera took home the Silver Award in the Italian Miscellaneous class with his gorgeous 1971 Alfa Romeo Junior Zegato. It took a 1957 Dual Ghia to keep him out of 1st place, so the competition was fierce! Likewise, Gordon Sauer took the Silver Award in the European Post-war class with his 1972 Citroen SM. Top honors in this class went to a 1973 Citroen D Super "Goddess". Congratulations to our club winners. The boys did good!

Autos in the Park 2016
Cooper Aerobics Center
June 12, 2016

Excellent turnout! We had a large crowd, great conversation and lots of Italian cars including a highly modified 500 Abarth, a Citroen SM, an Alfa GTV among others. Val Herrera brought his very yellow, recently completed and award winning 1971 Alfa Junior Z! Continuing a long tradition of Club member wins, Michael Keene took 2nd place in the Italian Class. A high point this year was the large turnout from the Lamborghini club. Thomas Liu is taking the lead in reinvigorating this iconic brand's local club.
