The monthly general meeting for the Edmonton & Area 567 club was held on July 7 at our new car club Clubhouse located upstairs at the National RV siding building.. There were 17 members present and all were quite impressed with the new “digs”, thanks to Norm....
This was the first in house meeting held since the Covid 19 “crap” started...
We did not get too “heavy” on some issues, One of the main topics discussed was the 20th annual “ Bowties vs the World” Charity Show n Shine, we will NOT present this car show again this year, what with the uncertainly of the Pandemic plus all the variants going around, the main sponsors & our many associate sponsor feel that given one more year, we all may be “clear” of this virus.. Another issue was the up & down attitude of AHS on this major pandemic, and it was felt by all involved that it is best to hold off till the “Coast” is clear... Safety to everyone is #1.
We are looking at the end of August 2022 to hold this event...There will be more info on this event as we get closer to August 2022..
The car club’s bank account is healthy , there are still some current members that have not paid the 2021 membership dues, I personally want to THANK all of you that have paid already ( this assists the club on taking care of monthly $$$ costs) and we welcome all your support...
