Held at the New West Hotel on Sept 5/2018

The minutes from August were reviewed & read by Interm Prez. Jim K. and were accepted by all members who were present.
A treasurer’s report was given on account status & it was accepted by all members who were present..
The 18th Annual Bowties vs the World report:
2018 has not been kind to us as for raising $$$ for our Kid’s charities, we had a short fall at this year’s Show n Shine both in $$$ raised & entry count.. For the first time ever, the car club’s account had to be “dipped” into. The pros & cons were discussed by all present and the final decision is to be made on our donation amount at the Oct. meeting.. One thing sure is that the amount that we have “handed” out in the past will be smaller this year. The final count for entries was 85 in total & the $$ generated from this event covered the costs but fell short on our donation portion compared to the previous years.. Jim was hoping for approx. 100 plus entries. This is the first time in the 18 year history that the event had this issue arise.. However, for those who came out, they claimed to have had a good time & the event is a good thing.. NAPA Auto Parts came out to have our event at their location at 173 street/111 Ave.
Having them with us is Great and working with them for future S/S’s is a positive plus.. A BIG thank-you goes out to ALL Members that assisted at this event !!! Jim will meet with NAPA officials over the winter months to plan & have next year’s event the better than ever…
We learn something new every year & that is a good thing.. We always have to improve the event & learn from it to make the next one even better..
The award winners have been posted on the Club’s website & some pictures as well..
Club Calendar report:
The photo shoot was discussed (shoot was taken place in July @ the Burger Baron on 118 Ave/125 Street) & Jim K. who set this up was not too pleased & disappointed with the photos taken (either quantity or quality).. Never the less, the photos that a panel have chosen are being printed on the calendar and all monthly sponsors have come forward.. The calendar is a 14 month issue & sells for only $5.00 each.. If you would like one or more (hopefully more) contact Norm or Jim (or even a member). More than 125 of the 250 printed have been asked for already! They should be ready by Oct. 3 & at our booth at the Red Deer Swap meet, that is where we will have them for sale also.. Monies generated from the calendar sales will go towards the 2019 Kid’s charity fund..
Swap Meet report:
The club will have a table at the Stony Plain & Red Deer swap meets & is looking to hold our 3rd Annual swap meet in late Feb or mid Mar. 2019, more to be announced.. If anyone knows of a location other than where we have held our first two at, please let Norm, Jim or Roy know. The venue in Sherwood Park is ok but Pricey!
To All Members:
A memorial for Randy Rowlinson (owner of Pro-Stock Perf. & Machine) will be held on Sept. 23 at the Sherwood Park alliance church at 1:30 p.m .. We should have some members out for this, as Randy has been a supporter of our club for many years.. Our support to his family at this time would be greatly appreciated…
A raffle idea was discussed, the reason is to generate additional $$ to add to our Kid’s fund “pot” & to put some $$ back into the club’s operating account. More discussion on this idea at our October meeting..
I have misplace the winner’s results (oops, I’m bad) again!!
