Presidents Message  - 6/8/22

Hello everyone and good evening,

I hope everyone had a joyful Memorial Day and I know I took that time to remember our war veteran club member George Tommasi and his wife Robbyne. 

Here is our summer schedule.

June 18th: Let’s meet for some BBQ at Hard 8 at 688 Freeport Parkway, Coppell at 10:30 am.  We can chat briefly in the parking lot and go in for some BBQ when it gets too hot.

July 23rd: club pool party at Dave Chapman’s house.  Dave has hosted us twice for a wonderful afternoon of swimming, drinks and conversation, followed by an outstanding dinner.  This is one of the best get together events we have over the year.  Family are welcome to join.  Hold the date for now but it will probably start around 4:00 or so.  Details to follow.

August 13th: Let’s join the DFW Fiat Club at the Hula Hut in Little Elm.  They have a Tex-Mex menu with Hawaiian inspired accents.  Details to come.  This will be the last chance to get details on helping out with ItalianCarFest.

September 9th (Friday): set up morning for ItalianCarFest

September 10th (Saturday): ItalianCarFest – the best show of the year. 

Other events – our club members are welcome to join the DFW Fiat Club with there events.  They have some fun ones planned.

June 11th (Saturday): Drive-in movie night at the Coyote Drive-In in Fort Worth.  Currently, the drive in movie schedule only goes out to June 2nd. As soon as Coyote posts the lineup for the 11th, I will pass along the chosen movie to buy tickets for.  Michael highly recommends buying tickets online as soon as they become available, as their movies can sell out at the door.  6:15 pm - meet up at Los Vaqueros, 2629 N. Main Street, Ft Worth.  6:45 pm - go inside and eat.  After dinner, cruise a fairly short distance to the Coyote Drive-In, 223 NE 4th Street, Ft Worth, for a movie in our cars!

September 28TH-OCT 2ND: Fiat Freakout: The Woodlands Resort and Convention Center, The Woodlands, TX.  You must be a member of Fiat Club of American to participate.  He has a drive scheduled for those who want to meet and caravan down to The Woodlands. 

Membership: it is still not too late to renew your membership if you have not already done so.  Here is a link to the club’s excellent website.  You can renew there.

Thanks everyone and see you in two weeks. 

Jeff Briggs, club president
