All the event sponsors are IN.. Thank-you again !

    A brief discussion on the past month's activity was covered .. there are some images from Gene's memorial service that we want to share with you.. Lots of support from within the club, he will be missed,

 Now that the City has cleaned the streets from all the junk leftover from our Winter, Now we can Cruise again  with No issues to our "rides"..
 There was some discussion on the plans for the Annual Show n Shine on August 26... These were minor and those present have spoken to be heavy on the volunteering side of things.. As the date approaches  the club will finalize these areas.. Jim to meet with the "powers to be" at NAPA in July to "touch base" with them..
Promoting the event has started, the Posters have been printed and just waiting for the Flyers from the printer too...                                                                                                                                                                                A lot of Social media has been used & many clubs have been informed as well.
 If anyone is looking for glass work on their project or have their rubber seals looked after, there is a business that comes to your location.. Benchmark Glass is the business name, check them out !

We have been informed that the Harley Davidson shop at 74 St/Yellowhead Tr. has a weekly cruise stop every Thursday from 6 p.m till 8:30 p.m.. Something to check out.. Refreshments & goodies too..

Just to let ya' know, the 149st location has requested that all car clubs in Edmonton and their members do respect the parking in front of the SuperStore Warehouse till about 7 p.m.. This issue was brought forward last summer, due to some participant issues between them and the car gang taking their clients parking stalls..
There are plenty of Show n Shines every week-end around the city, too many to list, so it is up to you to check them out.. Due to our short summer, July and August are pretty heavy with events...

Reviewed March meeting minutes & all was accepted by those present.  Treasurer's report was given & account is in good standing, 3 debits on the account all ok & payments complete.. Still seeking some membership renewals for 2023..



It is with Great sadness to announce that one of very good members has passed. on March 11/2023 Gene Boisvert was taken from us.. His family have planned a celebration of life on May 17 @ the Woodvale Facility ( Millwoods Golf Course starting at 11 a.m.. Cheryl has expressed that the club members that want to come out with the cars be there for 10 a.m and you can wear your jeans and a Black T-shirt.. I am sure that Gene would like all of us to wear our "colors"...Apparently they have a reserved row for our group, if you plan to attend give Jim a call  maybe we can "cruise" down to-gether ( and avoid being scattered in the parking lot)..



The club was at the Quick Times swap meet in March & received lots of interest, the club has a spot at the Stony Plain swap meet on April 29.. Drop by and say "Hi"..



Pleased to announce that all classes at our Annual Show n Shine have sponsors Now, to be held at NAPA Distribution Centre on August 26. They are located at 173 St/111 Ave..


We need assistance from the members make this event "run" smooth, too much to do with only two people... Event discussion at our May meeting...



 A suggestion was made by a member present to hold the Monthly mixer at the A & W on 149 St/111 Ave on Saturday evenings..Sounds good !, we will discuss the idea at the May meeting.. May be better as the weather is muchly improved up here in the Great White North..


There are still lots of areas in the city that have to be street swept, be careful when "cruising"..



The May meeting attendence will be affected by the Oiler game that Nite. Thanks NHL !!!



Next meeting on Wed. May 3/23 @ 7 p.m upstairs National RV building..
