We have recently changed to having Italian dinners out instead of monthly meetings. Business will be discussed as needed at theses dinners. We will still have meetings as needed, so please check this website for details of both meetings and dinners.
Everyone is invited to come and join the fun. These are very informal events, so even if you are not a member and only want to check out our club, please just stop by. If you like Alfas, we would like to meet you.

The Alfa Club of the Rockies is all about having fun. We love our cars, but it is really about the people. We are a casual club that enjoys driving, and equally enjoys stopping for a meal and a refreshment at a fun roadside café.
For 2017 we are planning many events to get you and your Alfa out on the road. We are dedicated to everything Alfa, and the enjoyment of these amazing cars. Join the club, and join us for drives, museum tours, Circo (our yearly track event) and if you are really brave, come on down for a dinner or event.
Check this website often for updates on upcoming events and information. The sooner you come out, the sooner you will be having fun!
The Alfa Club of Colorado was formed in 1968, much in the way other clubs were: Two Alfa owners, Bob Mather and C.J. Terry, put fliers under the wipers of every Alfa they saw on the streets of Denver and Boulder. They became the club's first president and vice president, respectively. Both have beautiful Spiders. Tech sessions at local dealerships, tours into the mountains, and social events followed. From the early 1970s and you'll see numerous contributions from members of the Colorado club. At the club's core was a group of technical experts who dissected their cars' mechanicals and wrote about how to trouble shoot and improve what they found.
Indicative of the strength of the club's leadership and the club's high regard nationally, the 1973 and 1977 national conventions were held in Aspen, Colorado. Aspen, with its club racetrack and comfortable mountain town ambience (more accessible in 1973 with convention room rates at $19 a night), was the popular site of an annual Alfa club weekend for a few years. In the late '70s and early '80s, Colorado Alfa owners autocrossed with great enthusiasm at several Front Range locations, scoring each event until champions were determined at season's end.
By the late 1980s, autocrossing was almost gone, replaced by the growing popularity of wheel-to-wheel vintage racing. A half-dozen Alfas, mostly Giulia Spiders and GTVs updated with 1750cc motors, participated in Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing events each weekend. The early 1990s saw a stable, strong club with a wealth of activities for members.In 1994, the club hosted its third national convention (Alfa Sulle Montagne) at Copper Mountain Resort, which included track time at Second Creek Raceway in Denver, an autocross, a rally and a hill climb above Dillon Reservoir. In 1995, the club's first annual Alfa Circo (Circus) at former Stapleton airport attracted about 60 Colorado cars and over 100 people for a full September day of auto-related activities for the family. In 2011 the club changed its name from Alfa Club of Colorado, to Alfa Club of the Rockies. This change added Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and western Nebraska to our region.
For the future, look for mountain driving tours, a strong turnout for the CP concourse held in June at Arapahoe Community College, a possible convoy to the national convention, Aspen in August, Automezzi Italian car show, Alfa Circo and the club's annual Christmas party. ACOR is governed by a seven-person board of directors who meet monthly. All board meetings are open to members. Our club's current president is Scott Walker. He can be reached at 303-902-8486. Our club is affiliated with the National Alfa Owners Club. Annual dues are $60.00, of which $10.00 goes to ACOC for local events and publishing the local newsletter. Membership entitles one to the monthly magazine Alfa Owner and a wealth of technical information. If you have any comments, suggestions or would like one of us to get in touch with you please email us directly.
