The topic of putting on the 22nd Bowties vs the World show n shine was discussed, a event group has been established to bring forth & develop some new ideas.. One of the ideas was to hold it every year like we have or hold it every second year ( due to the S/S events everywhere during our short summer have "watered down" the amount of events on the week-ends thus causing some events to have low number entrants )
A e-mail was sent out to have members decided and give some feed back...

          Since our show started in 2000, we have averaged just under 100 entries each year & have donated around $ 10,000.00 to various charities in the Edmonton area.. Further discussions and a decision to be decided at the February meeting..
         The club t-shirts have been ordered ( $25.00 each), our current supply is very low, hence the new order..  If you are not up to date, they are Black with a full back club logo and a front left chest are 4" logo..

             A 2024 club calandar was also discussed featuring the member's vehicles.. The pandemic screwed us up with our last calandar sales, we will discuss this topic in February also..
