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.
