August Minutes

The Edmonton & Area 567 Club August Meeting


                             August 4, 2021                       12 members present                           7 p.m start time


The July 7 meeting minutes were read by Jim and were accepted by all present.


The club account was presented and only one disbursement to the ESRA was issued for the amount of $200.00..

The SVAA  along with the Alberta Government have proclaimed that every June 9 of each year will

be proclaimed “ Antique car day ” across Alberta... There was a collection of various car clubs from the area

and Jim represented our group at the event which was held at the Railway Museum...


We had a special guest present, Mr. Bernie McIvor Jr.... He was present to thank the car club for the special award that will be awarded at the end of the year to a club member that displays the same attributes that his father  “ Bernie” had shown while he was one of our members for quite a long time, as we all know Bernie left us earlier in the year and we decided to have a special memorial award in his name .. Bernie Jr. has his father’s ’57 Chevy at his place and will restore it over the winter months and get it on the road...


Gene B. gave us some info on the upcoming ESRA car show slated for August 28.. The Edmonton & Area 567 club is a proud 2nd year sponsor of this show.. For those members who going to participate in this show please contact Norm, so we can “cruise” down to-gether..


It has been mentioned quite a few times that our Annual show n shine has been “postponed” for another year.. This of course is because of the Covid-19 virus/Delta variant that still “haunts’ everyone.. However it has been reported that NAPA Auto parts still wants to be part of it, once we get the “green light” to put it on... Hopefully in 2022..


Roy M. has arranged  a club outing to view a collection of Corvettes and unusual Goff carts at a local museum.. More to come on this outing at the next meeting..


Just a brief note , Norm M. has purchased a 1932 Ford ( yes I said a Ford) Hot Rod.. Nice car for a Ford.. He still has his ’56 Chevy wagon too !!!
