104 Street Invitational Car Show‏

 The 104 Street invitational car show, hosted by Kelly’s Pub and local establishments, was held on July 16 from 5 –10 p.m. There were 110 entries for the show and lots of things happening. There were 4 classes to enter and cash prizes for award winners. The venue was where the 104 street Farmer’s Market is held & the evening time for this show was kinda neat. Lots of people just taking in the sights & sounds, the weather was terrific! Next year may be even betterif it can top this year’s event.
Thanks to Vern Smart and his lovely daughter Kelly for the invite.

Meeting Minutes for July 2016

            The Edmonton & Area 567 club July general meeting Minutes
        7 p.m @ The Drillers lounge, Nisku Ab.  July 6/2016    13 members

Minutes from June meeting were read by Club Prez. Roy M. & were accepted by all members present.

SPECIAL Presentations:
Steve Frim from a company named “Geo Blast” appeared with info on a new way to “Blast” away your project or parts. They use a new process called “Wet Blasting” and are located in Nisku,AB. This new idea has amazing results, with half the problems from sand blasting & half the costs.. His presentation was very informative, to say the least.

Cory Kincaid from Central Alberta Raceway also appeared and made a brief presentation on the “new Kid on the Block” race facility.. It is operated by a non-profit group and is based on volunteer assistance. Presently they have a 1/8 mile dragstrip and are working to increase it to a full ¼ mile strip. There is a oval dirt track and dirt bike track as well.. Sept.10 is a big date for them, as they host a Funny Car event & the Club is invited. It looks like a club cruise could be in the works…

The treasurer’s report was given & as was noted last month, we are looking good. All members accepted Jim’s report. The club bought 10 folding chairs and 2 10X10 folding canopies.. The club’s yearly insurance will have to be renewed in August, and an increase on the yearly policy cost is likely.

Bowties vs the World update:  August 27/2016
All areas of the event are progressing smoothly & are in place. The voting ballots are printed, all sponsorships have been accepted, the awards are being currently produced. Hand outs for the Canadian Tire cashiers are also being printed (they will hand out these 1 week before the event). We still need door prizes and TWO more quality items for the silent auction. Plans are in place to Invite all Edmonton Area Car clubs to our Show n Shine. Vendors are always welcomed too! Jim will have a pre-event BBQ for all members at his place a few days before the event date. Canadian Tire has given us a two year window on this event & if all is ok with them, then the Head Corporation will come on board for future shows.
Fellow member Bernie M. also picked up a Gas pump handle at a Garage sale for the next year’s event.. We could use 3 more for upcoming show N shines, so keep your “eyes" open for these items.. Just to let you know, we use these for the “Long Distance” award each year at our event.. Our past supplier has stopped supporting us.

Club website update:
 We had 5,297 visits to our website for the month of June. Outside interest is about the Bowties vs the World show n shine & events that involve the members.

1st Ever KMS Tools Ltd. Shjow & Shine

The First ever KMS tools Ltd. show n shine was held at their store. They had projected about 60 entries for this event BUT they almost tripled the expected amount. There were 4 members from the club and you could not ask for better weather. Lots of cool entries, spectators and lots of draws.

Hopefully KMS will present next year’s show with a few more categories, as there were only 2 categories plus the peoples choice award.

2016 Camrose Cruisers Show n Shine

The Camrose Cruisers show n shine was terrific! The weather was hot with partial cloudiness (everyone was watching the sky for the big storm) and the entrant count was approx. 180 plus.
There is always lots to see from cars,trucks and people! Lots of people! The females love the unique shops that line the Main street, which holds the show n shine. 

Thanks goes out to Guy Hanak and gang from Showtime Auto (out of Camrose) for their hospitality and letting me park my ride in their area.. The drive to and from Camrose was nice & we tagged up with numerous other entrants from the City that drove back home.

Daysland Canada Day Cruise

The club was invited to a Canada Day festivity in Daysland Alberta by Fellow member Daymion Weiss. The cruise out to Daysland was great and the weather was also another nice addition.
The people at Daysland really know how to hold a event! The pancake breakfast hosted by the Town’s Fire Dept. was fantastic, then over to the town park to celebrate Canada Day. The burgers, Ice cream & birthday Cake were mouthwatering to say the least! The members and their wives really enjoyed themselves. 

Thanks goes to Daymion for the invite & we will mark next year’s date down on the calendar to be there again
