Copy of email sent out today - 03-01-10

Hi all,

Not everyone has email updates enabled on their AO accounts, however we really do feel it neccersary to promote all of the below:
-----------------------------------------------------------



Dear Alfisti,

First up, a very happy new year from the entire Alfaowner team, we hope that you are keeping to those New Year’s resolutions you made? Some of the staff at AO started jogging and already we are limping, hurting and moaning! Anyway, we didn’t disturb you just to waffle on, instead we wanted you to read this rare email as this is your first step to getting more out of your Alfa Romeo ownership this year and wow... What a year to own one!

So what’s in this email?
News of a world record breaking attempt
Information on booking centenary tickets in Milan
Added value to club memberships Plus join the AO club for just £10 a year!!!
New short animated 8C AO movie

So, we start off 2010 talking about two of the biggest events on the calendar so far, the first being as soon as Sunday the 7th February in Surrey (UK) where local dealership Allams Alfa Romeo and Alfaowner.com unite to host an “Official” World Record attempt that could see 250+ Alfa Romeos in a single convoy on a public highway. If this sounds like something you would like to get involved with, then use the below link to express your interest, we already have a potential of 230 yes and maybe attendees!
http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/uk-na...ar-convoy.html

The next big planned event is in Milan where Alfa Romeo themselves are celebrating a century of manufacturing. The celebration is planned for the 26 & 27th June 2010 and will be hosted in the centre of Milan. Alfa Romeo drivers (Alfisti) are invited to attend in their own cars with spaces limited to just 3000 so if you have ever wanted to go on a road trip, drive in convoy with other like minded owners on some truly amazing roads, then head over to Alfa Romeos website to sign up to the centenary event today, we suggest not sitting on this email for too long if you are serious about attending as tickets are limited. Please also note that their pricing includes co-drivers and tickets to the evening Alfisti meal as well as providing some merchandise.

All you need to do next is discuss how you will be getting there and where you will be staying.
Subscribe to the AO social group to keep up to date with what others are doing.
http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/group...iscussionid=55

Limited offer - Join the AO club for just £10 a year!
Throughout January, the AO Medio club membership is now just £10 a year, please visit the club compare package page to discover all of the available benefits.
Also If you are already a Medio subscribed member and wish to take advantage of the lower price but your Medio has not yet expired, simply top up your account by adding 1 years membership in the normal way and we will extend your current subscription by a further year and all for £10 http://www.alfaowner.com/club

We would also like to advise Medio members that we have removed the need to wait 30 seconds between your AO searches, this is in response to member feedback and has already been activated on all Medio accounts. We have not left Premio members out either. Soon they will be contacted regarding a newly designed club member key card, expect contact approx 2nd week of February. Premio members have also received a 50% increase in image storage space, we have increased it from 40MB to 60MB.

Another date we are looking forward to is the 24th November 2010 because Alfaowner.com will be 10 years old and on that note we would like to thank every member past and present for their input into the AO site and hope that you will all approve of our new 10/100 splash screen. We have created a short animated movie that we think portrays our passion for what we do at AO. If you like our short clip and what we do, then please help us to grow by posting it to Face book/Twitter or car related web sites.

Link to download the high res Windows Media clip: www.alfaowner.com/10-100/ao-8c-movie-hi-res.zip
You tube link for easy sharing: YouTube - Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione - Animated race - Coupe vs. Spider (45 secs animation)
Animation to be placed on our domain splash page at www.alfaowner.com later today.

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


We will be writing again in January to share more news and also to give you back the AO Classic style so until then, please drive safely.

Alfisti regards,


Ian Bowles
AO Group Director

Thank you to everyone, the last few days the club has raised approx £1000 which we will use very wisely, as you all know, ALL money raised from the Club fees are 100% piped back into the site to purchase software or aid development etc, no beer tokens used for our own needs thats for sure!

Thanks to all.

Regards,

AO

Actually I didnt know how to break this but here goes, he escaped for a week or so last year and a couple of weeks ago, we popped over to feed him and he and his wife were holding a little baby
Although we cannot endorse development downtime, we should at least congratulate him. Well done on the new baby girl Mr Jeff however if you escape again, I will board up your only window!

Not a GT

Some say he sees the real world in PHP code.
Others say that the last time he was away for a week, a tiny glitch in the AO database mothballed into a black hole.
All we know is, he's called Mr Jeff.

Thank you everyone

She's just like an Alfa; bit noisy on a cold morning, has been known to give off a funny smell and when she's running empty, makes a whining noise... but drop dead gorgeous to look at and everyone thinks she's great!
