240 Gordie Bonin Passes Away

It is with great sadness to forward the following message to the club. 

From - Jim Kennedy

"My fellow members, a recent supporter of our club and most recently, our “Bowties vs the World” Charity S/S, has left us. On November 29, 2013 in Las Vegas Nevada, “240” Gordie Bonin passed away.

I met up “240  Gordie” a few times over the years and followed his drag racing exploits for a long time, even when he was active though the 90’s. The club had the pleasure to have “240” appear at our 2012 Show n Shine, he signed autograghs & assisted the club in obtaining some autographed photos from his friends for our silent auctions, - he even brought out the restored Front engine dragster that started it all for him, for our show.. He was given the “240” title when he constantly ran his Nitro Fuel Funny Cars at 240 M.P.H or faster. he was the 1st to obtain that speed quicker than anyone else in that class at the time. I had received many e-mails from him since 2012 & he was often thinking of coming out to the event again.

“240” Gordie was truly a likable fella’, a True Canadian Hot Rodding Legend and if you had the chance to chat with him, he was someone who would leave you with an everlasting impression.   His support was Terrific!!!!         

Thank-you “240” for all your help and May God Bless !!!
 
Jim Kennedy


Condolences to the friends and family of Gordie Bonin.

1.      Call to Order
The Meeting opened at 7:05 p.m. and there were 19 members.  Minutes of the last monthly meeting were read by President, Roy Marko.

2.      Camrose Show and Shine
Our Vice-President, Daymion, reported that the Camrose Show and Shine date had to be rebooked for Saturday, July 6, 2013.  He said that the vehicles would cruise around Camrose at 6:00 p.m.  It was estimated that about 6 Club members would attend and that they would meet at the Looma Esso Station at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

3.      Father’s Day Car Shows
A Father’s Day Car Show was held on Vancouver Island.  Over 500 cars attended at the Car Show  at Qualicum Beach.  1950’s and 60’s music was played.  Any car or year was there.  It was not restricted to a particular make of a Chevrolet vehicle.

4.      Ukrainian Village Car Show
Brian Cherneske said that he attended the Car Show at the Ukrainian Village located a few miles east of Edmonton. It was a good show..

5.      Bow-Ties vs the World Show and Shine
Jim Kennedy reported that a new welcome flag will be used this year at our Show and Shine.  He said it was estimated that 120 picture folders will be needed. The new club 4X8 banner is done &
The awards will be completed in Early August.. Ballot sheets also need to be printed, will be done in early August as well.. Northgate Centre has goodie bags ready for the show..

Jim also said that members of a city Roller Derby group may have its members attend our Show and Shine. Plus the group “MADD” will be at the show with their message & booth..

Jim Kennedy said that he was still trying to get a skipping demonstration by a teenage club attend our Show and Shine. If anyone knows of a group that could use some exposure, call Jim..

Jim Kennedy said he still needs more door prizes for our Show and Shine and to have business cards to attach to the donated prizes.
And there is Vendor space available as well, have them contact Jim… @ 780-473-4559 or
e-mail jskennedy@shaw.ca for more info….


6.      Our August BBQ
Jim Kennedy said that everything should be ready to go by Wednesday, August 7, 2013, the date of August 11th @ Lions campground in Devon, in the gazebo is the date. All 2013 PAID members &  their Families are welcome.. More discussion at the Aug.7th Meeting..

    Jim Kennedy said that all money spent on our Annual Show and Shine could come from the  sponsors, and again he doesn't think the club’s savings account will be affected..

7.      The Club’s New Website
A report will be given by Kellen Kennedy regarding our new website.  There have been 1,200 visits to our website to date, which means that these people will be familiar with the fact that our Club is very active and has a lot of supporters.  He said that most of the people who have viewed our website are from the Edmonton area. Members have given the “Thumbs up” on the new site..

8.      Meeting Location of our Monthly Meetings
It was reported that Blackjack’s facility in Nisku is still a possibility for Monthly Meetings.

Clarence Shields is putting together a deal to have an American-style Truck-stop.  He said Americans would like Blackjack’s and not have to come into the City of Edmonton.  Clarence said he would advertise our presence at future monthly meetings if we change the location to Blackjack’s.  Blackjack’s are eager to have us meet at their premises in Nisku. And have indicated
That they will assist us with “whatever” if needed.

A Motion was then to hold our August  Meeting at Blackjack’s in Nisku, and to hold all future monthly meetings at Blackjack’s if things warrant this.  This Motion passed with only one objection.

Jim Kennedy noted that he was now officially Retired from his full-time job with EPCOR. CONGRATS  JIM !!!

He also said not to forget our August barbecue.  Everyone should bring some food and it is open to all members and their friends and families.  Brian Cherneske said that letters should be sent to all persons who want to invite friends so that they could use them to send to the invitees. This may cause problems so the membership has requested that only Paid members & their families could attend. Note: The annual Club’s 1/64 scale electronic drag races will be held also. Bring your Hot Wheels, Johnny Lightning or Matchbox cars.. Entry fee is $5.00 per persons & there are 4 classes..

9.  50/50 Prize
The 50/50 cash prize draw was won by Henry Irving

10.  Meeting Adjourned
The Meeting then adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
