Hello everyone! As we are all in the tight grasp of winter I thought it would be nice to start turning our thoughts to the spring. I know I am not the only one already anticipating getting my car out of storage to enjoy some nice drives and shows. With that in mind, we thought it would be great to gather everyone associated with the Cortile several times throughout the year for touring and just good old fashion socializing. The idea is for all the Italian groups to meet at least once a month. We can just socialize at one place or organize country tours from a “home base” to a restaurant. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas for a venue, please feel free to offer them up to the group. It would be great to get this off the ground before the weather breaks. Take care and we look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts on this.

I know several people in the past few years have expressed an interest in having some Italian Car "get together's" We're starting to see a number of events posted from other organizations for Italian cars to congregate as well. Thanks so much Matt for posting this and taking the lead on trying to coordinate some events outside of the Cortile.

People have talked to me about a Falling Water/Kentuck Knob driving tour through the Laurel Highlands with a evening stopover at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. I'm hoping that some of the members her reply if they are interested.

I know that everyone is probably getting some cabin-fever in the next few weeks and getting ready for some "touring" so you're really hitting this at the perfect time. Thanks much.

There is certainly no end to the type of events that can be planned and no shortage of places to go. I do hope this generates some feedback that eventually leads to monthly gatherings.

I would be interested. Looks like the weather is nice now and I am ready to get out.

Thank you for sharing your interest John! We are still looking for a venue so if you have any thoughts, please feel free to share them along with any other ideas you may have. It would be a shame to not get these great cars together more often as well as get to know each other better. We will keep everyone posted as things develop.

I would be interested in a monthly get together. Here are two ideas for possible venues:
1. Bucca di Beppo in robinson, has large, secure parking lot, good food and atomosphere
2. Wexford Starlight Cruise, I live right behind the church so we could reserve a few rows in the upper lot

Any other ideas?
I would love ot help organize this.

Love the Bucca di Beppo suggestion! Would be a great place to gather I think. The Wexford Cruise is a good one as well, though it gets so crowded there and they frown on holding spots. I would love to find a Home Base of sorts and your first suggestion I think fits that well. Should be pretty easy for most to get too.

Matthew,
I would love to get started on this. My cell # is 724 971 1182. We need to pick some dates and gauge interest. I know they have had car cuises in the lower mall parking lot but we would need to contact the manager and go from there.

I will give you a call tomorrow William.

Howdy Marianne! We will keep you posted as we are currently working out some details for creating a home base for meeting as well as ideas for places to go. Good thought about the Oakmont show. Anyone interested should sound off! It would be great to have a big turnout.
