Members Meeting Feb 21 2015

Okanagan Mustang Association

Regular Meeting
21 February, 2015, 0930 hours.

White Spot Restaurant – West Kelowna

Four (4) members present and one guest.


1. The subject of overdue membership fees for 2014 was brought up by President Ray Spencer. Ray was looking for what action to take regarding the issue of late membership fees. The general view was put forward that those members that are in arrears should be reminded that 2014 dues are now overdue. President Ray Spencer put forth the idea that if membership fees are not forthcoming then it would be time to say good bye to certain individuals. As there were not enough members at the meeting a quorum could not be held for a vote.

2. President Ray Spencer wanted to know base on views expressed by others members as what constitutes a “life member.” A secondary issue was that if life members are not paying dues then perhaps it should be mandatory that they at least show up for a few meetings during the year. In response treasurer Bob Coombs advised that when the original association ended in the early 1990’s there existed a group of individuals that made sure the existing funds were kept safe. Thus when the association was revived these same members were given “life membership” in appreciation for this effort. Linda Jackson remarked that the life memberships are not costing the association anything to keep them on board. President Ray Spencer realizes this but would like to see both life time members and regular members engaged in association activities.

3. The Watkins Show was briefly discussed. President Ray Spencer advised that he had went out to see Watkins Ford along with Al Rollingson to see what date they had in mind. The dealership advised that they are looking at a period between 15-20 September. A recent email from Dave Lynne Shiliday advises that they were told the date would be July 19th by Watkins Ford. This was supported by Bob Coombs. Therefore it would appear to be best to wait until the Shilliday’s have returned from their winter sojourn so that they can work out the details they may have already made with Watkins.

4. President Ray Spencer advised that Bruce Oslund, General Manager of Trucks Plus in West Kelowna asked Bush Halpenny and Ray to sit on the Cop’s for Kids Board. The intent of the board as designed is to try and get as many car clubs as possible to participate in the Cop’s for Kids to day event to take place 30 & 31 May of this year. The first day of the event will be the Show and Shine with a dinner and dance in the evening. Day two will be a car cruise and lunch. The fee for this event will be $50.00 per person which includes car registration, dinner, dance and the events on day two. The Cop’s for Kids organizing team advised that they will have a shuttle service available to drive people home after the dance. At the first board meeting held on 6th February Ray Spencer advised that car show folks have problems with;

Kids on Bicycles near show cars
Kids with ice cream cones etc.
Adults and children with wet dogs.

The board team advised that bicycles and dogs will not be allowed into the event area. Also the intent is to set bar prices high enough that people at the dance will only have few drinks and those deemed to be on the verge of over indulging will be cut off. Liquor at a car show event should be interesting????

5. Treasurer Bob Coombs advises that the accounts are balanced with sufficient funds in the bank.

6. President Ray Spencer wanted to know if there was an updated membership phone list for the phoning committee. The intent for next month is to phone everyone on the existing list to advise of the next regular meeting.

7. President Ray Spencer advised that he would like to go back to the idea of sponsorship to raise money for trophies awards etc, similar to 2013. Treasurer Bib Coombs suggested that maybe we should have a sponsorship link on our association website for anyone that wishes to donate. The members present were reminded that as we are a registered society a receipt can be issued for income tax purposes. Treasurer Bob Coombs advised that we have to be careful about how much money we raise and subsequently disperse as per the registered society act regulations. Treasurer Bob Coombs asked if the intention was to keep the Okanagan College bursaries at one thousand dollars. President Ray Spencer advised that was the intent at the present time.

8. President Ray Spencer asked those present if they would like to participate in the Penticton Swap Meet on 18th April. President Ray Spencer advises that he has a few car related items to sell and a few members advised that they have items also. Treasurer Bob Coombs advised that we also picked up three new memberships last year at the Swap Meet. President Ray Spencer advised that he would make the application.

9. The Speciality Vehicle Association of B.C. was briefly discussed with advise from Treasurer Bob Coombs that we have never participated with this group before. Matter closed.

10. Member concerns – The result of the 50-50 draw from last year’s car show and shine resulted in an additional $149.00 being given to the Okanagan College so in effect they got $1149.00.

Linda Jackson suggested that the association should perhaps do a few things for members to get them out to meetings. She suggested a group drive to the drive-in theater in Vernon. Linda Jackson and Treasurer Bob Coombs wanted to know if the White Spot in West Kelowna is set in stone as a meeting place. President Ray Spencer advised that at the AGM the majority of members want a set place but this can change if members so desire.

President Ray advised he likes Debbie’s Diner in Penticton as the room can be closed off from the general population. **This morning we had a women walk into our area an plump herself down at the bar while our “private meeting” was taking place.

President Ray Spencer suggested a group drive to the beach at Summerland with an association arrange picnic would be a good idea also.

Meeting adjourned at 1045 hours.

** Due to the low meeting attendance most likely do to snow birds still on vacation there will be no meeting in March. The third Saturday in April will be the next meeting, hopefully all our members will be back by then.
