NIIMC all Ireland Italian gathering 2010

Hi All. We will again be running the annual gathering at Cultra museum outside Belfast on Saturday july 31st. It's later in the year but will give a better chance of good weather, and it was the only booking Spot available.
As always every type of italian vehicle regardless of year and condition will be made very welcome, so no excuse not to come along.

Vehicle entry is £10 and this includes 2 tickets into the museum. All money goes to the museum and not the NIIMC.

If you need any further info by all means email me at [email protected] or follow the thread over on the NIIMC site http://pub29.bravenet.com/forum/static/s...11&cmd=show

As it's Alfa's 100th we're hoping to make an Alfa theme in the circle but to do that we need as many of you Alfisti to come along as possible.

It's over to you so hope as always to see as many of you as possible.

The museum seems very impressive. I called in one day and the fella "said we're closing in a hour and a half, call back another day to get a good look around, allow four hours" I haven't had a change to call back yet.

Ohh ya, I was thinking it would be a good one. But what I meant by pm'ing me was to organise a convoy and the exact loactions and timing and where to stay lol as Cork is a 6 hour drive and a tank of juice to the north.

I'd say it will be worth the trip, the car park is huge and it's easy to find.

**edit** Belfast and back is also a tank of juice for me coming from Derry

Irish News reporter did it in 4 hours via the new M8 but Newry traffic was a nightmare.

Sounds like a good day out, might bring my classic Vectra

Hi Lads I was the only one who went last year, shame on you all. Its a good day and the museum is not bad if your into that sort of thing. There was some fine cars on the day, there was ferraris, fiats, alfa's and lancia but no lambos or maserattis.
I think the newry bypass is open now so its motorway/dual carriageway all the way.
I'm usually on Tory Island that weekend but if not I should make it.
