Not for the faint of heart but instrumental in reminding us of the fatal nature of motorsport.
Were it not getting dark so early these days, we would have held the meeting on the patio of the RCAF Club! What Fall weather!
It was a busy meeting with lots on the Agenda but that didn’t stop everyone from discussing the often overlooked world of AMC muscle cars. Did you know that the difference between an AMC AMX and the Javelin is 14 inches? Norm did. Could that be because he is the owner of a AMX Big Bad Blue coloured model? Imagine owning a car that looks like this:
- A motion was made by R. Curtis and seconded by P. Ellsworth to accept sealed bids until 8pm. This was passed. One bid was accepted but withdrawn shortly afterwards. As a result, the storage bin remains unsold. It was decided that we pursue selling the item on kijiji. Roger will pursue this. It was important to the present executive that members–past and present–be given the first opportunity to purchase this club asset first. On a similar note, club members present were offered club T-shirts for $10 (L and XL) along with an XXL size for $5.
- The results of our Club Autoslalom Championships were presented for purposes of affirming membership status, errors, etc. All was in order and trophies will be distributed at the AGM.
- Elections: Rob Metcalfe has accepted the position of President for the remainder of the year. Roger Curtis has agreed to take on the position of Treasurer with a plan to put the last three years of transactions into an electronic Accounting program. There were no takers for the position of Racing Director or Equipment Director. These positions will be offered up next meeting.
- Incorporation. In what can only be described as a scene from Catch 22, we won’t have a full slate of officers (there is another volunteer waiting on the side-lines) until we submit taxation forms and we can’t get this done with out having a full slate of officers. All should be well once the Accounting gets done, however.
- The Club has positive cash flow. The bank balance stands at some $9000 +
- The Limestone Street Scene Club was discussed. They appear to have a healthy membership and we were curious to know why. All evidence suggests that more of an effort is made to simply hang-out and, as Pepsi Cola used to describe it: ‘be sociable’. To that end, the executive will investigate a Fall fun run. Stay tuned!
- What does the club do? In the absence of a Director of Racing, we looked to those in attendance and suggested that all ideas arising from the floor are not only welcome but will receive the full backing of the club. Again, the idea of car get-togethers was discussed and we came back to the idea of a Fall run.
Even with the season drawing to a close you can still prove your petrol-headedness with help from this quiz.
Back in the Spring it was announced that your club would use the results of the Shannonville Autocross series (put on by Driver Dynamics) would serve as the basis for a Club Championship Series and the results are in.
The club plans to honour our recipients at the AGM to be held in the new year.
Please, please, please excuse any errors or omissions. And, more importantly, let me know if this is indeed the case by emailing Roger at firstname.lastname@example.org

As most of you know, St LAC owns a metal storage container. Kept at Picton Airport this was used to house the club’s pylons and other equipment. Recently these items were moved to the club’s trailer and generously stored at the home of our Secretary Danby Crowder and, as a result, we no longer require it. This means we’re going to put it up for tender.
One only 6′ x 6′ x 6′ metal shipping/storage container. This item has been kept indoors, shows little wear and is only a few years of age. It was originally purchased from Princess Auto. It resembles the following picture (excludes pallet dolley and timbers).
This offer is open to present and past members of St LAC.
Offers will be accepted by mail or can be delivered at the meeting scheduled for September 21st, 2017 at the RCAF Club. All offers must contain a cheque made out to the St Lawrence Automobile Club for the full amount tendered. It need not be a certified cheque. The offers will be opened at the meeting. The successful bidder is responsible for removing the container from the Picton Airfield before the end of the last business day of September, 2017. The club executive will attempt to be available to assist with the dismantling and loading of the container onto your vehicle.
Questions can be directed to your executive by emailing email@example.com
This offer is subject to change, general screw-ups and discombobulation.
