May Minutes

The Edmonton & Area 567 Club May Minutes     May 4/2022
               7 p.m Start                                            14 members
April minutes were covered and all members present passed them..
The treasurer's report was given & the account is in V. Good standing... Event sponsorship is 95% complete... Thank-you !!!!

Discussion on continuning the Saturday "mixers" was brought forward, BUT Since the weather is turning for the good
the club will hold a BBQ sometime soon, when a date is selected.

Some of the April minutes have been non-recorded, so some of the meeting coverage are "iffy"..  OOPS !!!
Like to welcome Don McGowan and Jim Phelan to the club !! I know a couple more signed on but there names are misplaced.. We should be at the 40 + membership mark !
As of this print all but one has signed on as a sponsor for the Bowties vs the World S/S.. This should be solved at the June meeting.

The price to have t-shirts done for the event is much too high for us to cover, so the mug idea has come forth.. The event logo on the mug and on the other side
the NAPA logo imblazed.. This is 1/3 the cost for these to be done compared to the t-shirt costs.. Waiting for NAPA to respond to this idea... If not maybe we go in it alone...
The Rock n Roll band idea is undecided, they have not contacted Jim about appearing... So a D.J has been hired for the event, he has been with us for many years..
Just waiting till July to contact some Eskimo alumni or Golden Bear players to join us for the "pie eating" contest.

Event volunteers will be required but we won't know for sure how many and where they will be needed as of yet.

Vendor ROW is NOW taking participants, only display charge is to provide a door prize...

The last time we had the event, before Covid, there was 8 vendors.. If you know someone that would be interested, have them contact the club or Jim..
April 13 the club was asked to "show off" some "rides" at Harry Ainley H.S during the lunch hour... Roy Marko brought out Craig's '57, Gene Boiverst brought his '56 wagon and Jim brought out his '55..
The kids loved it & teachers too ( see attachment )
June 16/22 is the day for a club tour to the Classic car museum " Yesterdays Classics" , WE NEED 15 or more to show up !! Contact Jim to confirm..
Norm has slated June 11 for a "Garage Sale" event, more to info to come at the June meeting.. contact Norm or Wade to get a spot..

April Meeting

The Edmonton & Area 567 Club April minutes
                                     7 p.m start                                           14 members

  The March meeting minutes were reviewed and approved by all present.
  The treasurer's report was given and $$$ in the account is looking good, one debt and paid for the 3 member club memorial plaque..
  The members presented a motion to pay half of the expenses to Jim for Hotel & fuel to the Red Deer Swap meet on behalf of the club..

  Our Saturday afternoon Mixers have been rather well attended except for the Easter week-end mixer... The one set-up for May will be discussed
  at our May meeting.. If weather is good we can hold one outside ( BBQ style) & cruise..

  B vs W update :
  All but two award sponsors ( as of this print ) have paid up, and, once all have been paid then we can work on the event poster.. We must list all our sponsors for the event on the poster, of course !!
  Three of the ideas to celebrate our 20th anniversary event is to have souvenir done and coffee/ beer mugs produced.. The costs are really too high for the shirts and the mugs are 1/3 the cost to be produced..
  either concept will have our event on the front and our major sponsor ( NAPA Auto Parts ) on the rear.. Decision to be made at the May meeting..
  Plus to have a rock n roll band to play for 90 mins. is still in the works, Jim to meet with band members soon to discuss the $$$$ & if the cost is too much for us to handle...
  As in the past the club account is not to be affected, Hence we need a sponsor for example, to have the band.. If not feasible, we can revert to having a D.J all day long for a lot cheaper..
 Too early to ask but there have been a couple of High end Drag racers expressing interest in bring their  cars out for display..
  Also Jim looking into the idea of persuading some  Esks (Oops Elks) to join in the "pie eating" contest or some U of A Golden bears...
 It is early But Volunteers are always needed ..
