Hi Diane !

I just had my AM Radio ( 1962 Thunderbird ) converted – not replaced – to play AM /FM and music from a computer stick .By looking at the radio, you cannot tell that anything has changed. I think quite a few of the Coasters might enjoy having that done to their radios . Normally I would bring this up at a meeting but seeing we’re not able to have meetings right now – do you think you could forward this to the membership ?

Thank you

Stay healthy

Rene

Update March 18, 2021

Hi just an update on what I have heard from the District of Sechelt.  They are not issuing any “special event permits” yet due to Covid-19. Rules.  We know things are loosening up but our hands are tied.  We need at least 3 months to get everything organized  to have a show.  We can’t even have a meeting to get the ball rolling before that.  We keep everybody informed as to what we are doing.  Thanks. Ken.

A message from Ken Begg

To all members of the Coasters Car Club

Just a note to let you know what is or is not happening.

We have tried a couple of times now to have an Executive meeting but the Government and the Health officials have said only “Critical Services” can be held at this time.  I have also been in contact with the District of Sechelt and their office is not issuing any Special Event Permits at this time.  They too are waiting for restrictions to be lifted or eased from Victoria.

When the restrictions have been lifted we will have a meeting to see if we have enough time to put together a show in 2021 or not.  If you have any questions or ideas on what you would like to see happen and offer your services to make them happen please e-mail Dianne Allen (Secretary and Activities Person)

dnallen6518@gmail.com     Your input is most welcomed.

We have delivered flowers to Louis Vignal and family for their Loss of their wife, mother and grandmother Darlene Vignal.

I have members cards to show membership for discounts at Lordco/ Kenmac and Napa for discounts on your automotive parts.  Please contact me at 604-989-8411 to arrange the pick up of your card.  For the Pender Harbor members please contact Glen Tietjen at 604-741-7925 for pick up of cards.

I hope this finds you all well and looking forward to the day we can all meet again….

In deepest Sympathy

It is with Our Deepest Sympathy we announce the passing of Darlene Vignal, wife of Louis Vignal of Sechelt.  Louis and Darlene have been long standing members of the Coasters Car Club.  As club members know, Louis was instrumental in creating Sleepy Hollow.  Darlene battled hard with her illnesses and sadly she succumbed on March 1st,  2021.  Darlene will be sadly missed by all who knew her.  Our condolences to Louis, Louis Jr, Lisa and families.

Free Ford F150

We have a old Ford F150 pickup truck that we would like to offer to any of your club members who may be looking for parts etc. This would be of no charge simply your cost to tow away. The truck has been sitting since 2004 and was aprox 10 years old at the time. If anyone is interested I have pictures or can arrange to have you come over to see it. The vehicle is in Sechelt.

Regarding Sunshine Coast Mustangers Cruise In

This from Bill Stevenson:

Good morning SCM,

Well, it looks like the “fickle finger of weather fate” is moving in tomorrow with a 100% chance of rain for our area. It is very frustrating when an event we have been anticipating does not come to fruition because of the weather, especially when it is a charity event.

However, we all realize the necessity rain plays in our community and will hope that as it is coming, that it will help to replenish our critical potable water supply. It will also give our gardens, forests and the creatures who inhabit our area, some relief from the heat we have been enduring.

I wish the A&W much success in their “Burgers to Beat MS” event tomorrow. If you are in the area of either the Sechelt or Gibsons A&W, I hope you will give a thought to helping them in this most worthy cause, by making a purchase or donation to help them out.

Looking ahead to next Thursday the 27th, it is at this time looking like a sunny day is forecast. With that in mind, I hope to see you back at the Sechelt Tims at 7:00 PM for our last C3 (Cars, Coffee and Conversation) event this August.

If for some unforeseen reason, the weather tomorrow turns into a non rain day, then I will be pleased to see you at the Sechelt A&W from 5 to 7 PM.

Thanks everyone.

Bill
