Meeting Minutes for November 2016

The Edmonton & Area 567 Club November meeting minutes
at the Airways Inn, Nisku, AB Nov.2/2016 14 members present

The meeting was opened with the Prez. Roy M. reading the minutes of the October meeting & all was accepted by those in attendance.

The Treasurer’s report was given by Jim K. The account is in good standing and the only cheque outstanding id the donation cheque to Kids with Cancer. (EDITORS NOTE - This was rectified)

The Non Profit application to the Province has been sent in & we are just waiting for the approval.

New Business:
The club had a location again at the Red Deer Swap Meet presented by Quick Times Magazine. We again had lots of people dropping by and inquiring about the club.

Roy M. & Keith G. are working to have a 2017 club calendar printed.. More to come before year’s end.

World of Wheels car show is returning this spring and maybe we can put to-gether a club display. Jim to check into this and report given at the January meeting.

The Annual Club’s Christmas dinner is on December 7 @ Black jack’s Roadhouse.
Deadline for tickets is November 16 ( to arrange the menu ) Contact Don C.

We had a guest speaker for this meeting, Mr. Reg Adams. His presentation and idea were brought forth to those in attendance. His concept is to hold a indoor Spring Swap Meet in the city with a car club aiding him on the operation of the event. He brought out 3 different locations, all on the South Side of Edmonton that would be good spots to hold such an event. His proposal to us is to assist him in the areas of advertising, supply volunteers ( for move in night, day of event & clean-up), event security and admission gate. The benefits to the club, is a even split of the profits to us, the opportunity and the recognition that the club would receive for this venture. Jim had stated that the club would only submit $1000.00 to the venture and that 12 or more members would have to commit to assist in this event..
Many questions were brought forward such as table rental costs, event insurance coverage all members volunteering, First Aid attendants, Fire regulations etc. Plus who the person or group in charge would be, admission & vendor cost.. Before anything can be moved forward, Jim made a motion that the volunteers needed & commitment from them should be addressed first.. A deadline date was presented to Reg, to complete the first stage ( volunteers ) which is December 7, 2016.. As of this print we have only got verbal commitment from 7-8 people.. A mini meeting was held after the Main Meeting with members that showed interest to this venture, to discuss this idea and concerns that we have to deal with.. The final decision on this will be made by the club members at December’s Christmas supper at BlackJack’s Roadhouse, Nisku AB.

The club will be at the Stony Plain Swap meet again, to promote our club and sell some items that some members want to get rid of.

Old Business :
None was discussed .. The presentation of our Donation Cheque to the Kids with Cancer had to be addressed & Roy M. to make the trip over to their office to give them the cheque.

Club Website:
October had 1956 visitors, pushing us over the 80,000 visitors mark since we revamped the website, about 3-4 yrs. ago… The most viewed sites were our event results, the event pictures and members page.. A new membership form has been posted with Don’s new mailing address

50/50 Draw
Cash was won by Jim K. the Snap On waste paper basket won by Armand L.
The tri-five book ( supplied by Reg Adams) won by Kellen K.
Meeting closed @ 8:30 P.M Minutes recorded by Bernie M.


16th Bow-Ties vs the World Cheque Donation

Apologies for the delay on this. Club President Roy Marko has delivered the cheque to the order of $2200CDN, raised from the 16th Annual Bow-Ties vs the World Show and Shine, to the Kids with Cancer Society.

A huge thank you to everyone who participated, contributed, attended and volunteered for this year's event.  Despite the muggy weather and the change of venue - it was a great time for all involved.  We look forward to next year when everything gets bigger and better for the cause.

Keep that Tri-5 Alive,

Major Proposal for 567 Club Members

To all members!

At the November 2 Club Monthly Meeting - a proposal was brought forward to the club.  We have been asked to assist in the operation of a Spring Indoor Swap meet (date TBA). We are the first car club asked to help out and the opportunity to benefit from the exposure of this event for us & make some $$$ for the club & any charities of our choice is very good!

The areas of publicity and staffing would be our task. The staffing involves gate admission cashiers, set-up & clean up  volunteers, over night security & floor staff the day of the meet.

A total of 12 –14 volunteers are needed, so far there are 6-7 that have committed to be on board (50 %). I have been asked to recruit or to see if there is enough interest from the members to support and COMMIT to this idea... The Club needs your response!

The deadline is December 7, 2016 for your response. WE need total commitment for those who sign up on the list. Please reply to Jim K at jskennedy@shaw.ca .

The organizer for this concept has been in the automotive scene for many years and feels the time is right to have this type of event in the city and wants a local car club to assist.
Yours Truly
Jim Kennedy

Meeting Minutes for September 2016

The Edmonton & Area 567 club September General meeting Minutes
7 p.m Drillers Lounge, Airways Inn, Nisku Ab. 9 members present.

Minutes from August meeting were read by Roy M. & accepted by all present. Welcome to Warren Lee & Glen Kaminsky for joining our group..

Club Prez. thanked the small amount of members that assisted in making the Show n Shine successful. Special thank you to the wives and their friends for their help as well. Thanks goes out to Jim K for all his duties too. The folks at Canadian Tire were impressed & want us back for next year.

Treasurer’s report was given by Jim K. The final numbers were present for the Show n Shine. Again the Club’s bank account was not affected, all costs were covered by our sponsors. THANK-YOU to Them!!! The club account balance was given & accepted by all present.

Bowties vs the World:
A discussion on the show n shine was held and some of the ideas that were brought forward were touched on. What with this being a new venue for our event, we did see some issues arise.  A donation to the Kids with Cancer from the total registration received will be $2200.00. A cheque for this amount will be presented to them ASAP. All the Photos and results are posted on our website, Check them out!

Some ideas that were mentioned, is to I.D the ballot pails a little better. The ballot pails for each class had the class marked on the lids but some members suggested that each pail should be numbered to correspond with the way the ballots sheet were printed with each class numbered on them. It may reduce ballots misplaced in the wrong pails. We have
to re-design the ramp for those “low riders” that want to park on the grassy area. It seems that the ramp was a wee bit tough to drive onto & also to add another ramp was brought forward.
The registration time may be moved ahead to 9 a.m instead of the 8 a.m (that 8 a.m time, we have had for many years). This time change may give us more time to set up. This may help ONLY if all members come out to help set up the venue before the entrants arrive.  Signage around the new site has to be improved, this idea will be addressed for next year. Having the Boy Scouts attend the BBQ booth was Great! They will be invited back next year as well. The addition of the “Best Early Hot-rod” class was a good idea, & the rest of the award classes will remain. These are always depending on our sponsors. As always we NEED ALL members to assist to make this event to run smoothly. Thank-you cards to all sponsors are to be completed by Jim soon.

New Business:
The Car Club license plate project by Roy M. is deferred to our October meeting.
The club will be at the Red Deer swap meet Oct 8. The club trailer will be there to promote our club with a club table plus Roy & Jim are buying a table each. so 3 tables are booked. This was accepted by all present. The club has also booked 3 tables (1 each for Jim & Roy) and 1 for the Club at the Stony Plain swap meet in November.

November meeting will have a guest speaker, Mr. Reg Adams is slated to attend and bring forth his concept of his about plan on holding a swap meet in city of Edmonton & having us involved with him.

The discussion of getting a 2017 calendar done was brought forward. The 2016 calendar was a big success & plans to do another one were widely accepted by all present. Roy M. will look at some locations for a photo shoot.. When and where will be discussed soon. The season & weather plays a big issue & this project should be done soon. The club will contact all members about bringing their rides out for the photo shoot.

The Website numbers for August were brought forward. We received a little over 2,400 views (wrongly stated during the meeting as 11,000) , with the Pro-Stock Show n Shine & our info on the B vs W event were the most visited.

The Car club’s Annual Christmas supper is slated for December 7 & again Don C. to make all the arrangements, Stay Tuned !!! Thanks Don!
A brief Swap n Shop was then held and there was No 50/50 draw this time..
The meeting ended @ 8:50 p.m

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

Meeting Minutes for April 2016

            The Edmonton & Area 567 club April meeting minutes
      Held @ Driller’s lounge, Nisku  Ab,  7 p.m    14 members present

The previous minutes from March meeting were read by Roy M. & accepted by all who were present.

The treasurer’s monthly report was given, Club account is in Good shape, there were 3 disbursements in March ( swap meet in Red Deer, Stony Plain swap meet & website charges).. The report was accepted by all members present.

A report on the Red Deer swap meet was given, the club again had a real good response and we have two new members to our group. Let’s welcome to the club Mr. Rene LaForce & Mr. Warren Lee… NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOMED !!!

The club’s website had 1153 hits for the month.

The road trip to Reynolds Museum was cancelled due to an untimely event, Roy will announce a new date, will be sometime in May.

Roy & Jim met with the Senior Manager & Store Manager @ Canadian Tire (Fort Rd). The response from them is very good & very positive to host the 16th Annual Show n Shine at their location. Their commitment to our club was highly noted & most of the ideas and plans that we have had in the past were greatly accepted.
However there are a few minor things to be discussed and worked out, their overall enthusiasm to our event was terrific. The location will be reviewed in two years as they are moving to a bigger and better location close to the Henday/Fort Road area, just a little north from where they are now. The folks @ Canadian Tire want us!!!  And their new location was discussed as well, with us in their plans…

A motion was then presented to the members present, to relocate the Show n Shine & work with the folks @ Canadian Tire as opposed to staying at previous location at Northgate Centre. This was passed by all members present (14 for & 0 against).. Another meeting with the Store manager is slated in the early part of May. A letter of notice was sent to Northgate Centre on the our decision & thanking them for their support over the years.

The Canadian Tire location has room for 150 plus entries plus two grassy areas for use and a nice area for a vendors row. Great visual & access from the street. Plus we can select our choice of food vendors to be present. Maybe there is a local Girl Guide/Boy scout troop that would like to hold a BBQ spot at the event or maybe a community group as well.
The Canadian Tire store has donated to us, new Voting Ballot pails (15 of them) about 6L size for our award balloting. We could use approx. 12 folding chairs, anyone with a source to help us, let the Exec. know please.
New ballot sheets to be printed for the event and promotional posters as well.

Keith G.is getting info on the rental of “PortaPotties” for the day plus we need, not only for this day, but for other events as well, some large size Refuse Cans (4 or 5), Anyone that can assist us in finding some( donation) please let us know.. The club may also purchase these as well. Must be able to stack & store these in our trailer.

Most of the Award Sponsors from last year & from the years gone by have returned, Jim is still accepting sponsorships and looking for others. If you know of anyone who would like to be an  award sponsor at our event, please contact Jim.

The club is always looking for door prize articles for the event, if you can get something that we can use that would be great!!!! Do let Jim know, as well.

Some of the local businesses in the area will be approached for our event, to aid in the above mentioned door prizes or as an award sponsorship (if needed).

The goodie bag idea was discussed and we need items for that was well. We are looking at the first 80 entries (or maybe more) to receive a “bag”. The entrant’s photo will return plus a entrant cash award as well.. Additional contests we have been noted for, such as the pie eating contest, Ladies sparkplug change contest, Shop Creeper drag races & a kids event will still occur.. Stay tuned for more.

New Business
The club will be at Drayton Valley on April 16 & at Stony Plain on April 23 to promote the club.. Other members as well will be at these locations.
A photo/ cruising spot has been proposed to the club, the Burger Baron on 118Ave & 125 St. has a 50’s style car port that can handle 8 to 10 cars under it plus it is a great location to show our “rides”. Great off the street visibility for our group. And the food is fantastic! Not bad for “fast food”.  Maybe we can make it work!!

Edmonton Plating (Steve Query) in association with the Heart & Stroke foundation are searching to hold a swap meet.. Those in the planning to contact Jim to assist & will need support from our club.

The idea of a members “cruise” to a burger spot in Calmar is still planned to happen, stay tuned for time and date..
