The Edmonton & area 567 Club March Meeting Minutes
March 4th @ the Airways motor Inn 7 p.m with 12 members
Opening minutes of Feb. minutes were read by Roy M & accepted by those in attendance... The Treasurer’s report was given by Jim K. and was well accepted by the members. All is ok!!
We had Mr. Roger Silcox from Amsoil hold his presentation on all the Amsoil products.. Q & A then followed, Roger is going to arrange to have the club on the preferred customer program & is available to all Edmonton & area 567 Club members (we should get approx. 20/25% off any product).. Those in attendance rec’d a product catalogue & info.
The club will be at Red Deer on March 20th and at Drayton Valley on April 18th ( at the curling club)
Bowties vs the World update
Jim has one sponsor ( Showtime Auto) as a paid sponsor already, for his awards. Jim has surveyed most of last year’s sponsors and they all have indicated that the extra $$ for the sponsor’s logos on the back of the shirts is a little too much because of the current economic situation..
Jim feels that the sponsorship commitment for the awards is more important than adding more $$ to the fee of the sponsors. This idea is closed by the membership, but if there is a sponsor who wants to buy the whole back of the event t-shirt.. WE can deal !!!
Ok was given to Jim to have 200 letter size hand-outs printed for the Red Deer swap meet plus two Extra large posters. To make some more for Drayton & Stoney Plain after the Red Deer week-end.. Club members voted in favour to cover the over nite stay at hotel covered for the swap meet volunteers..
Jim also ask those in attendance for ideas for the event to make it more appealing to attract more interest.. Come on Members help him out !!
The idea of using Porta-Potties at our event is questionable, the liability and costs are an issue. Jim to look into this concept and report back at April Meeting. There are washrooms located in the mall & at Chili’s Resturant to use however..
Jim to present KMS tools with a Trailer sponsorship/advertising position. Will report back at the April meeting..
The “Kids with Cancer” house tour to be finalized by the April meeting.
Also a question was brought up about any upcoming indoor car shows at Northlands.. More to come.. TBA
50/50 winner- Arman L.. Amsoil products were won by Gene B & ???
Meeting ended @ 8:25 PM Next meeting April 1st @ Airways Inn.
Thank to Bernie M for recording these minutes.
