Southern Alfa Day, Sunday 24th September

Are any of you planning to come over/down/up to Southern Alfa Day next Sunday, 24th?

Its at the Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey, EN9 1JX, easy access from the M25, and its a very interesting venue. Plenty to see, in addition to the cars.

I mention it because I will be one of the marshalls and it would be great to see you there

The featured model will be the 916 so we will be parking these together, whilst the lesser models will be more scattered.

Here you go, I borrowed this from the AROC site:

The Alfa Romeo Owners Club Essex Section are hosting Southern Alfa Day on 24th September at the Royal Gunpowder Mills and would like to welcome all members to this historic site to enjoy the many displays and exhibitions to interest everyone. It is spread over a large area as buildings were separated due to the materials being processed and wildlife now thrives on the site. The many attractions are shown on the Royal Gunpowder Mills website, and include 170 acres of history, the Rocket Vault and the Armoury, just to mention a few. Land Train Tours of the site are available for a small extra cost. And, of course, our cars will be on display.

In the theatre, Ken Carrington will present his illustrated 'History of Alfa Romeo' during the day.

We will have our own entrance to the site, opening at 09.30 hrs, and recommend that members use the Club's online ticket facility, as at the gate we can only accept pre-paid tickets or cash. We will not be able to process credit/debit card payments. Please print off the pre-paid tickets for collection at the gate and, if you're paying on the day, have your membership card available, especially if you are not in an Alfa. Advance tickets for members ar just 8 per adult and 6 per child (5-15 yrs). Non members advance and all tickets (members/non members) on the gate prices are 10 per adult and 7 per child.

Also the gate will not be manned after 14.30 hrs and anyone arriving after this time will have to use the public car park and pedestrian entrance, but to be able to see the attractions at the Mills, an early arrival is recommended, last entry 15:00 hrs.

Unfortunately dogs are not permitted on the site due to the wildlife living there, except registered Assist Dogs.

There is easy access from the M25, junction 26. Take the A121 to Waltham Abbey, and at the cross roads and traffic lights by McDonalds, go straight on to Beaulieu Drive. The Royal Gunpowder Mills is at the end of the drive.

Tickets are available from the homepage or by calling Club manager Nick Wright on 07753 857029 to order over the 'phone.

I'll be there, already bought ticket. I'll be in a black 147GTA, see you there. Saw the venue featured on a TV show a few weeks ago, looks to be an interesting place.

I have just been over there helping to set up the gazebos etc.. It really is an interesting place, well worth a visit in its own right never mind the added Alfa attraction.

Very nice!

But where's the one of MY car? (as everyone else will also ask!)

Just kidding. I will ask our section secretary if he knows of anyone else taking photos and see if I can get hold of some. We didn't have an official photographer.

I normally take more but my battery ran out of charge, my fault for not checking. However I do tend to take more photos of the older models and the new ones as nice as they are, don't interest me. Martins photos are great, but you couldn't load that many on this forum. So I thought I'd post the best of what I had. Thanks again to all concerned for a great day out, looking forward to some new ones next year.
