Club president Roy Marko had the pleasure of personally delivering this year's proceeds from the Bow-Ties vs the World Charity Show & Shine to representatives of the Kids with Cancer Society.
Once again, a gigantic thank you to every single person who participated, contributed, showcased, volunteered, and pretty much had anything to do with the event in question. See you again next year.
Thanks to Elaine Garner who submitted some photos from the Bow-Ties event. Below are Don Kawalilak and his 1984 Monte Carlo, as well as Keith Garner and his 1979 Chevy Silverado Long Box
Also, here's a picture of Don Cornish destroying the competition for the sixth consecutive time. Pie Eating Champion.
There were well over 100 vehicles entered at the Bow-Ties vs the World Show and Shine - if you spot yours - post in the comments where your picture is and I'll update it to include your name and car. (Please count the row, and state if your picture is on the left or right.)

It was announced that we need 4 extra prizes for the barbecue at Devon, which will have our annual 1/64 scale drag race. Hamburgers and smokies plus beverage will be avail for paid members. However the 1/64 drag race has a $5.00 entry fee per person..
b) Availability of Canopies – Jim Kennedy said that we needed 2 more canopies for the show n shine. Members were asked to bring theirs if they can
c) Broadcast/Advertising News – Kellen Kennedy said he had arranged for some items for our Show and Shine, and to have the event advertised on radio. The Mall has arranged the advertising on the radio and paid for it, saving the club lots of $$$$$.
d) Our Show and Shine will once again be at the Northgate Shopping Centre in Edmonton. The total number of awards which will be given out to winners is presently at 24
e) Northgate Mall – It was announced that the Northgate Mall will help with publicity for our Show and Shine.

Maybe we can have some members & their vehicles appear at this show…
g) Blackjack Premises at Nisku – It was noted that we prefer to have our meetings (which are to be held in the Blackjack premises at Nisku from here on) on the second floor of the Blackjack premises. Having food brought up to the 2nd floor will be discussed with Clarence for next meeting..
h) Liability Insurance – Jim announced that the insurance covering our club activities is due and it will, according to Jim, likely be more expensive that last years. A Motion was made that we pay the necessary premium and the Motion was PASSED. This covers our insurance for the year 2014.
