May Minutes

Edmonton & Area 567 club May Minutes

           May 5/2021      12 members present

 

 

      There isn’t much to talk about, this current status with the up and down Covid situation makes it almost impossible to hold any type of meeting.. About a dozen of us met at Norm’s shop, then proceeded to the 149 St A&W to just socialize and swap info.. Lots of members are just itching to get out and cruise as a group, we are working on it. 



The current club account is at $6000.00, Still no new time line for a our 20th Bowties vs the World Show n Shine.. It may have to wait till all this Covid crap is over and we can get back to the ”good old days” so to speak.. 



We lost the NAPA sponsorship over this Covid thing & Mr. Mike Larouque has been relocated within the company ( I would like to Thank Mike for his all his help to our event for the past 2 yrs.) .. 


Jim as asked some of our event sponsors, if they are still able to come and help us out.. Those that he contacted indicated that they would be back..  Which is GREAT news.. A new kid on the block so to speak is ,Lordco Auto parts, they have been approached as a event sponsor but No news from their front as of yet... Jim passed out to those who came out at the May 5 meeting a little gift from the club.. There are many more to pass out but you have to come to a meeting to get yours.. Even though we have a good numbers in the club account, the club STILL Requires some members to pay their yearly dues, which helps the club in several club operational functions.. 



Many members that still have to pay up, You know who you are !!!!  At our next meeting on June 3rd, we will be requiring these fees from the members.. It is only $25.00 per year... Just in case we have “lost” some sponsors for our B vs W event, the club account will have to cover the these lost costs..  So PLEASE pay your Yearly Dues.... One of our long time members is slated for a serious heart operation in May, Our Prayers and thoughts are for him.. God speed  Don!!!



PLEASE WELCOME our new members to the club, from Leduc Alberta, they are Garry and Cheryl Vanduesburg..


Hopefully we can get to-gether at June’s meeting, the phase 2 of the Covid protocol should be in place for all of us law abieting folk.. The next meeting/gathering is at Norm’s shop, 14305-121A-Ave @ 7 p.m..  June 3rd/2021...


Then we will cruise over to the 149 St A&W for a social thingy if the phase 2 is not in place and we cannot hold a meeting at Norm’s.. A new date & time for the Quick times swap meet, June 12 OUTSIDE the Westerner Building from 8 a.m to 2 p.m.. NOTE : Set-up is ONLY from 5 a.m till 8 a.m...

 

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR CAR CLUB !!!!!

 

Be safe, Stay healthy !!!

March/ April Minutes

The March 3 meeting was an executive only meeting held had Norm’s new “digs”.


There was a discussion on how the Covid-19 virus was affecting our group.. if you remember during the 2020 season the Car Club was recording attendance at our monthly meetings and scoring was made on such things as member attendance, bringing their “ride” out to meetings and general participation at club events... After all the “recording” the winner was Roy M., who narrowing beat Jim K. at the end.. A gas card on behalf of the club will be presented to Roy for his prize... I was decided to have a special award to be given out to a club member on behalf of fellow member, Bernie McIvor (Dubbed the Edmonton & Area member of distinction award), a panel of 3 will decide who receives this and NO executive will be on the panel. We are looking for 3 members to serve on the panel, please let Jim know if you would like to be part of this.. This is a special club award in Bernie’s memory and will be presented towards the end of the year by either Karen McIvor or one of Bernie’s children..  The executive has planned a April social and cruise to the 149 St A & W for the April 7 meeting.. Wade will contact the members on his list via e-mail on the plans... 


The club account is good but could be better so PLEASE renew your membership ASAP to help with club operations...

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR CAR CLUB...

 

The April meeting – A total of 16 members participated in the April 7  cruise to the 149 St A & W.


The idea was well received by all who came out.. It started at Norm’s shop at approx.. 7 p.m and proceeded to the “DUB”.. Jim K. missed this social due to family commitments in B.C and did not get back in town in time... If the current Covid protocols by AHS are still in place for the May 5 meeting, we will plan another cruise/social.. Wade will contact via e-mail all the members on his list.. The Quick Times Swap meet has been rescheduled for June 12, due to Covid issues.. This will be a outdoor event from  8 a.m till 2 p.m.. If you have any questions, please contact Don MacGowan at Quick Times to address them.. The club will be there again as usual.. Hopefully all this Covid crap will be over soon and we can resume our ways...



As was noted in the March notes, we require members to renew their memberships ASAP, PLEASE !!

Be safe & stay healthy

Feb Exec Meeting

Due to the AHS Covid-19 protocols we did not have a general meeting but the Club’s executive did meet up for a meeting. The club will be at the RED DEER Swap meet again. There still is Interest in our club & is growing.



Discussed was the Spring Swap Meet in Sherwood Park, slated for April 17, it was decided to CANCEL any plans for one, what with all the Covid-19 protocols still in place & the limitation of vendors/shoppers this would certainly cause a problem. 


 We are still working on having our 20th annual “Bowties vs the World” Show N Shine, to be held on August 28, we are just waiting to hear a response from the Good Folks @ NAPA and from the many award sponsors on their support of our show.. If the response is not in our favor, we will look to hold it in 2022.


The Executive meeting is slated for March sometime and we hopefully wish to have a Monthly meeting for all members in April.


A reminder to all members that the 2021 Club dues are NOW BEING ACCEPTED, please sent them in.. We have had to purchase the insurance package for this year to cover all the members partaking in Club functions for this year and  we have to replenish the bank account. 

REMEMBER SUPPORT YOUR  CLUB!!!!



Keep safe & hopefully we will get together SOON!
