Join the FCA Board - come up in the world of Ferrari
Four board positions will be up for 2018 - Membership Director; Treasurer; Secretary; Activities Director. Except for the Activities Director the others are willing to serve another year. The Activities Director has gone into the Witness Protection Program so will not be available. The requirements of the position include setting up monthly dinners, driving tours, garage tours, tech sessions and other Ferrari car related activities, as well as sending out a newsletter via email. The entire Board will help the new Activities Director in planning these events. Currently, events have been set up through the end of February 2018 so the new "hire" can ease into the position!
October 12 - Review of Dinner at Spiga
What a night. About 75 hungry, thirsty, chatty, rowdy members enjoyed a great dinner and companionship at Spiga. Fernanado Esteves, owner of Spiga, has just bought a California and joined the club. Fernanado blocked off half the parking lot which was filled with a very colorful display of many different models, and which attracted lots of attention from the other patrons.
October 20 - Ferrari 70 Anniversary Party hosted by Scottsdale Ferrari
Gary Simon has sworn me to secrecy but I can assure you that this is going to be an awesome event that you will not want to miss. I did send out a separate invitation last week but you must RSVP for admission at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480.421.3801.
Oct 22 - US Grand Prix & Lunch at Penske Racing Museum - almost sold out.
Once again Scottsdale Ferrari/Maserati is graciously hosting us for lunch and a chance to watch the race on their new giant screen and hi-fi audio system. The lunch is delicious and the A/V system sure beats sitting at home with Cheetos and a puny 60" screen. The race starts at noon and the lunch at 11AM. REGISTER
November 11 - Polo Match. Free food. Free Booze. Free ogling.
This is always a very popular event and the registration fee of only $25 per person will provide you admission to the Molina Jewelers VIP Drivers/Players tent with lunch and cocktails which is at least a $250 value. The fee is so that we can hire a uniformed policeman to monitor the cars. This is an all-day event so you must arrive by 9AM. You MUST bring your Ferrari or Maserati to be admitted.

November 16-18 Mecum Auction in Las Vegas
Mecum is our newest FCA sponsor. They are coming to Las Vegas Nov 16-18. They are super nice folks, and are looking to get our members to their event. That might mean free entry, or a bidder's paddle, or cocktail party (not sure yet). We are waiting for details so we'll let you know.
November 19 Garage Tour - two awesome private collections - SOLD OUT!
Our long-time member's, Dennis & Brandon Pobiak and Rick Mazer have very graciously offered to show a small group of us their private collections. This is limited to just thirty people so we have to limit it to the member with no spouses or guests this time. We will meet for breakfast at 8.30AM at Soul Cafe, leaving at 9.30AM SHARP to drive the short distance to the Pobiak's. We leave there at 10.45 and drive almost across the street to Rick Mazer's. We will finish at noon so you have the afternoon free. Of course I know that I'm dreaming to think that we will adhere to these times but please be respectful of our hosts.
December 2 Annual Holiday Dinner & Dance
This year our Holiday Dinner will be at the luxurious Fairmont Princess where you can also see what is reputed to be the best holiday light show in town. It's Black Tie optional so dig out that dusty old tux while the ladies have an opportunity to wear their best evening gown or cocktail dress, and drag their tiaras out of the safe. After dinner we'll have dancing. We have a limit of just 120 and it always sells out fast so register now. The cost is just $100 which is half of what it actually costs us but we are very heavily subsided thanks to the generosity of Scottsdale Ferrari/Maserati.
We have a special discounted room rate of $229 (plus tax & $30 Resort Fee) for the night of our annual Holiday Dinner & Dance on Saturday December 2. Contact Fairmont Reservations directly and tell them you are with the Ferrari Club. REGISTER
