The Edmonton & Area 567 Club January 2 2019 meeting minutes
7 p.m New West Hotel conference room 14 members present
The previous meeting minutes from December were read by Club V.P Shawn G. and was passed by all members present. Shawn also presided over this meeting, as Club Prez. Jim K. was away in California at this time.
The club’s bank account was reported & the info was accepted by all present.
The club’s Christmas party was successful again.. A big Thank-you goes out to Zoe & Norm Messervery for hosting the evening at their place.
Note: membership dues are now due for the 2019 year.
The idea of having the Swap Meet at a Southside warehouse fell thru But Jim has secured the Sherwood Park Location for the club.. To be held on April 20th.. We have close to 80 10 x 10 stalls available & the fee is still only $40.00 for a stall. Tables if needed will be $12.00 extra but only currently have a few to use from the local church.
Club raffle idea:
This idea was passed by the membership. Tickets are $2.00 each with three prizes up for grabs.. there will be 25 tickets per book ( for a total $50.00 value per book).. The prizes are a 20V Dewalt drill & impact gun kit w/bag for 1st, a “old school” metal pinned striped cooler for 2nd& a $50.00 Visa or gas card for 3rd.. Draw date is Aug.24 at the Bowties vs the World Show n Shine.. Many Thanks to Norm for getting the Dewalt drill kit for us.. a total of 1000 tickets printed.. Each member is requested to sell at least a book (hopefully more.)
Non Profit Status:
This is the first time since we went this route that the province has been very slow in giving this status to us. Normally it has been accepted and completed by Christmas but not at this time (province is “dragging” their feet on this). Still pending. WHY ?
The SVAA insurance info:
Still No policy, Jim has contacted them on this matter & as of to-day still no answer from them. Still pending?!
The Western Canada Meet:
The Saskatoon 567 club as was presented earlier is hosting this 3 day event. As far as we know about it, Accommodation is filling fast so book early.. Limited space! Their club rep. Gary Cherneski was fairly vague on the event when asked in December at Norm’s place. It is slated for July 11-15th/2019.. Hopefully more info will be brought to our attention on this event.
Bowties vs the World:
This is slated for August 24 2019, start seeking door prizes for this event & promoting the event!!!
