I hope this newsletter finds everyone in good health. It’s
crazy times right now. It’s also the first
time in the club’s history that we’ve had
to cancel the Rocket Round Up. OK wait, not cancelled…postponed.
It has the same result. There is no car show this year, but
if we cancel it, next years show will be the 28th show which won’t
be true. So by postponing it, the 27th Rocket Round Up will
be held on July 17, 2021. On to better things.
How would you like to have a chance to win a 1969 Hurst/Olds?
How about the first one made…car number 1? Fusick Automotive,
which can be found on our sponsors page, is having a contest.
It is open to residents of Canada (except Quebec) and the USA
(except Oregon). I know that for Québec residents to
enter, the one giving the prize away, has to have that prize
in their possession. If you’re giving away a million
dollars for example, Québec says you have to have the
million dollars in your possession and not rely on tickets
sales to get the million dollars. Not sure if Oregon has the
same consumer protection law.
Anyway, you can find more details on our Facebook page. Apparently,
there is no purchase necessary however it looks like it’s
for a good cause. If you win and Fusick wants you there, they
will pay your airline ticket. Read the rules and the small
print, so you know the details. Good luck to all who enter.
And speaking of the club Facebook page, it’s
a great way to get up-to-date information between newsletters.
There are a lot of people who have joined the page who are
not members of the club. What’s holding you back. There
are some good discussions there.
From what I’ve seen
in the Edmonton area at least, is that cruise nights are
still going on. Most are honouring
the 2 metre distance rules and some are wearing masks. Canada
has flattened the curve in every province and the number
of infections are going down nationwide (out of 37.5 million
people we had 279 new infections last week) while deaths
have dropped significantly as well (8 in the last week).
All our PPE is domestically produced and we don’t need
to rely on others to obtain it as Canadian businesses from
coast to coast to coast, have re-tooled to make what our
heath care workers needed to save lives. Canadian doctors
and nurses were even crossing the border into Michigan and
New York to help overwhelmed medical staff there, save American
lives. Hopefully we can get our numbers even lower as we
don’t want this thing to take off again after all the
isolating we did a few months ago. We don’t want that
to be for nothing. Until we can get together again, stay
strong, stay safe and have a great Canada Day 2020.
