We also require door prizes as well. The event poster is to be completed when ALL sponsors are accepted.. The Cruise calendar has our event in it already. The registration fee remains the same and if Jim can get the award production cost at the same price as last year, that award cost will not change for the award sponsors.

Swap Meet Results

April 20 was the date for the Edmonton & Area 567 Club Charity Swap meet, held at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park.

There were 66 vendors who took part and a gate count of close to 600 swap meet shoppers, looking for that special deal or part, and it looks like everyone had a great time- including our A&W bear. The club did well at the gate with a little over $3,000.00 taken in and even the venue rental was taken care from the event itself.

No major costs from the club account were needed.

These are just a few pics taken were taken during the event. Hopefully we will have another one a year from now. It all depends on the membership’s direction on this event.

I think we did well & to all members that came out to help on Move In day and at the Swap Meet itself, Thank you  for all your help!

Club Insurance:

As was reported earlier, we have changed our Insurance policy to what the SVAA offers from the Competition Insurance policy that we have had for many years.. The reason is cost, we got the same coverage thru SVAA cheaper that what Competition Ins. required (Competition Ins. is now a Wayfarer Ins. Partner) for a lot less.. Plus any event that the club holds is covered by the SVAA program & is listed in their monthly newsletter .. Bernie M. represented the club in Lethbridge at the SVAA spring meeting & our club was well received by all present..
