September 2018 Club Minutes

The Edmonton & Area 567 Club September General Meeting
        Held at the New West Hotel on Sept 5/2018   
14 members present
The minutes from August were reviewed & read by Interm Prez. Jim K. and were accepted by all members who were present.
A treasurer’s report was given on account status & it was accepted by all members who were present..
The 18th Annual Bowties vs the World report:
2018 has not been kind to us as for raising $$$ for our Kid’s charities, we had a short fall at this year’s Show n Shine both in $$$ raised & entry count.. For the first time ever, the car club’s account had to be “dipped” into. The pros & cons were discussed by all present and the final decision is to be made on our donation amount at the Oct. meeting.. One thing sure is that the amount that we have “handed” out in the past will be smaller this year. The final count for entries was 85 in total & the $$ generated from this event covered the costs but fell short on our donation portion compared to the previous years.. Jim was hoping for approx. 100 plus entries. This is the first time in the 18 year history that the event had this issue arise.. However, for those who came out, they claimed to have had a good time & the event is a good thing.. NAPA Auto Parts came out to have our event at their location at 173 street/111 Ave.
Having them with us is Great and working with them for future S/S’s is a positive plus.. A BIG thank-you goes out to ALL Members that assisted at this event !!! Jim will meet with NAPA officials over the winter months to plan & have next year’s event the better than ever…
We learn something new every year & that is a good thing.. We always have to improve the event & learn from it to make the next one even better..
The award winners have been posted on the Club’s website & some pictures as well..
                                                                                                                         Club Calendar report:
The photo shoot was discussed (shoot was taken place in July @ the Burger Baron on 118 Ave/125 Street) & Jim K. who set this up was not too pleased & disappointed with the photos taken (either quantity or quality).. Never the less, the photos that a panel have chosen are being printed on the calendar and all monthly sponsors have come forward.. The calendar is a 14 month issue & sells for only $5.00 each.. If you would like one or more (hopefully more) contact Norm or Jim (or even a member). More than 125 of the 250 printed have been asked for already! They should be ready by Oct. 3 & at our booth at the Red Deer Swap meet, that is where we will have them for sale also.. Monies generated from the calendar sales will go towards the 2019 Kid’s charity fund..
Swap Meet report:
The club will have a table at the Stony Plain & Red Deer swap meets & is looking to hold our 3rd Annual swap meet in late Feb or mid Mar. 2019, more to be announced.. If anyone knows of a location other than where we have held our first two at, please let Norm, Jim or Roy know. The venue in Sherwood Park is ok but Pricey!
To All Members:
A memorial for Randy Rowlinson (owner of Pro-Stock Perf. & Machine) will be held on Sept. 23 at the Sherwood Park alliance church at 1:30 p.m .. We should have some members out for this, as Randy has been a supporter of our club for many years.. Our support to his family at this time would be greatly appreciated…
Raffle idea:
A raffle idea was discussed, the reason is to generate additional $$ to add to our Kid’s fund “pot” & to put some $$ back into the club’s operating account. More discussion on this idea at our October meeting..
                                                                                                                             50/50 draw
I have misplace the winner’s results (oops, I’m bad) again!!

August Meeting Minutes

The Edmonton & Area 567 Club August Monthly Meeting
Held on August 1/2018 @ New West Hotel: 9 members present

Vice Prez. Shawn G. presided over the meeting as current Club Prez. Jim K.was away.

There were no minutes provided from the July meeting.

Treasurer’s report for this month was also not reported due to Jim’s absence.

The club’s Photo shoot at the Burger Baron on 118 Ave./125 st. was held a few weeks ago. We were missing a few club members and their “rides”.. Norm & Jim have reviewed some of the photos that were shot & some other photos were not acceptable for what we wanted.. Club members to decide on the photos, that will appear on our 2019 Club Calendar at the next meeting. The calendar will be on sale once they are produced. Price not confirmed as of yet.

The main focus of this meeting is to get ready for the 18thAnnual Bowties vs the World Show n Shine.. The member pre event BBQ is slated for August 18 @ Norm Messervey’s house. This is pot luck style & BYOB.. The club will provide the Burgers / hotdogs & some non-alcoholic beverages. Norm’s address is 19016-75 Ave. The Show n Shine is @ a new venue as Canadian Tire (where we were the last two years) did not offer to do anything for us this year… We do not know what the entry count will be, due to our event is at a new venue & there are numerous Show n Shines slated around town that day.. Jim is hoping for 80-100 plus.

To be successful we will need all members to help out during the day. All members who are coming out to help & set-up, please meet at 8-8:30 a.m on August 25. Jim K. to stay overnight the night before to assure the parking lot is clear for us & get a early “jump” to set-up at the location.

A grassy location on the main Blvd in front of the NAPA building has been noted for all Tri-5’s entered. This is a proven attention grabber, so to speak.. Shawn G. has confirmed the portable washrooms will be set in place & Jim has applied for a special permit from the City (oscam permit) to have crosswalk signage put up.

Armand L. will provide the Trash cans for the event.

The businesses just across from NAPA on the south side of 111 Ave have ok’d the use for public parking. The crosswalk signs are to be placed on 111 Ave., so the public can cross safely. We have to provide crosswalk assistance for the public when crossing 111 Ave. All handicap parking stalls in front of the NAPA building must be open for their customers. The whole Eastside of the NAPA building is ours to use, plus if needed the large grassy area just north of the parking lot can be used as well. The area will be mowed for us.

Certified Radio has provided a CD player for raffle prize & also Maximum Mechanical has provided a “Drone” package too. The CD player is the Adult prize & the Drone is the Kids prize, Tickets are $2.00 for the adult prize & $1.00 for the Kids prize… Bouncy castles have been arranged to be out there for the kids, they must have a waiver signed by their parent & have a wristband on at all times while they are on the castles. Food trucks and an ice cream vendor has to be confirmed, Jim K.to look after that. Fat Franks has confirmed his appearance, however…

Vendor row will be along the eastside of the NAPA building & just a donation to our cause or a door prize is all that is needed from the vendors.

D.J will provide his own power supply but the call is out to have any member to bring one out as a back-up. Don C. & Jim K. to bring out their machines.

The ladies of some of the members will work at the reg. table. They are as follows: Zoe Messervey, Laurie Cornish, Linda Kennedy & Marg Lindgren… THANK-YOU ladies for your assistance, we couldn’t do it without you !!

Roy M. to take entrant photos again this year in front of the Club Banner between 9-11:30 a.m.

We hope to have the class awards handed out & the event conclude by 3:30 p.m…

Any questions about the event contact Jim K.
