What happens at an alfaowners meeting?

Being new to this site - and new to owning an alfa (2 months) - I'm interested in what happens at the monthly meetings. Are they serious car-based discussions or just an excuse to spend the night in a pub?

Then there's the chicken blood of course...singing and dancing around a burning 328, chanting, lambrusco! lambrusco! lambrusco! and of course the ritual sacrifice....sorry ? Oh right, that's just Kent then.

Re: What happens at an alfaowners meeting?

Really glad I started this thread - I was worried that alfa owners might be boring

Not sure about all the nipple stuff though .....

..... women tend not to do that in public!!!

Re: What happens at an alfaowners meeting?

I've only ever been to one meet but I can assure it's a very welcoming and friendly crowd

Yes, there is a lot of car talk, but also a fair amount of eating and banter

They're my initials. My first name is Anne. Apparently this means 'mummy' in Turkish (not the wrapped in bandages sort, thank goodness!)

Re: What happens at an alfaowners meeting?

Never been to one myself but I hear there is usually some sort of pentagram and the night ends with a jolly old virgin slaughter.

You can't have a slaughter without laughter now!
