The report on the club’s Bank account was given by Jim & the info on the club account is good & all members present accepted the report with No issues or concerns.
The Edmonton & Area 567 club members have decided to have our current executive stay on as is for another term. Those currently on the “board” have no issue with the membership decision.
At this print the club had only 36 calendars left, out of 250 printed, the interest is very good & very surprising. All but a couple members, who were there, took the rest of the calendars to “aid” in distributing them.
The Spring Swap meet location was investigated by Norm M. & he has stated that Nov.15 he would find out more on this location & will report to the membership at the December meeting. We would like to hold the event in February, as to not clash with the other two groups in March. If there is anyone else that can assist us in locating a place please let us know ASAP, please.
A idea was brought forward regarding a raffle with ½ going towards our kid’s charity pot & the ½ toward club operations. Lots of positive discussion on the concept with more to come.. Idea is to have it in place, so start to sale tickets at the various Spring Swap meets in the area.
There was an open discussion on membership commitment & event participation, after all the “dust” has settled it was addressed that All clubs no matter what they represent have this issue & maybe some quality “fixes” from members will evolve to resolve this topic. We have a fantastic “core” group but the involvement from others has to be addressed.
The Club Christmas party is on December 8 @ Norm’s place, with it being a “potluck” style meal. Please, contact Norm if you are coming & what you are bringing. We need a “head count”. You can contact Norm @ either 780- 485-3144 OR 780-951-0521.
The Saskatoon 567 club is reviving the Western Canada meet in July. Many of us plan to attend. Our club is in the process of arranging a 567 convoy of member’s “rides” going out there & possibly sponsoring an award. More discussion at the December meeting. You can go to their website to view the accommodations available.
Rebecca Marko has invited the Club Executive to come to her & Roy’s place to select a new format for our Club’s website. Slated for Nov.16. The club will provide the $$ for the goodies.(er, the meal) Our current format on our website is outdated & has to be replaced by the end of November.
Club Insurance is about to change, what with the policy that the Speciality Vehicle group of Alberta has to offer it will save us a lot of $$$ and for the same coverage that we currently have with Competition Insurance. Jim to look into this policy and possibly “move” on it for the group.
Jim has a meeting planned with Mike L & Sam P. from NAPA Auto Parts to start the plans for next summer’s Show n Shine. How the meeting went will be addressed at the December meeting. Bowties vs the World is slated for August 24 @ the West-end NAPA Center. This will be our 19thyear !!!! WOW !!
