Plan to join us for the 2017 Old Spider Tour - a tour with a long history and a great way to enjoy your club and your Alfa! This year will be an overnight tour with a fun group dinner event on Saturday night. The McGills started this tour decades ago to celebrate the purchase of their 1958 Spider (on April 15th) and Bob’s birthday (April 19th). Sadly, the McGills are no longer with us, but we will enjoy the legacy they have left.


We welcome you and your Alfa (any vintage or type), but especially encourage all AROO’s Old Spiders (pre-1966) to get out and join us. If you are tight on time, just join us for Saturday. The route, as always, will head east for some great roads with little traffic - the Old Spider Tour standard.


More details will come out, but please plan ahead and think about getting your car ready and make your hotel reservations as soon as the hotel is known (keep checking back here, and there will be an email blast to all members as soon as these details are known).


Here are the key details:


Date:    April 29 and 30, an overnight tour


Start Point:    TBD

Start Time:    Arrive by 8:00 am, Driver's Meeting at 8:15 am.

Saturday Lunch:    We will picnic along the route. Pack your own and enjoy a relaxed lunch with the tour group!

Also:    Arrive with a full tank of fuel.


Saturday Night Lodging:    TBD


Group Dinner Saturday Evening:    We have planned a very special group dinner at the TBD restaurant.


Sunday:    We will tour back to Portland with some of Erik's favorite roads out east. We are avoiding Mount Hood both days due to the strong likelihood of loose gravel and skier-related traffic. This will be another 200 mile plus day.


If you have any questions, please contact Erik Roe at erikroe@me.com or call (503) 706-8304. We hope you will join us!
