Visitors:

Thank you for visiting our site. The Shell Oiltimers Club (Alberta) is a social club based in Calgary (Shell Canada Head Office) for all Shell retirees (and their spouses). Any person or the surviving spouse of any deceased person who has retired from employment with any of the Shell Group of companies after service for a number of years sufficient to qualify for a company pension may become a member on one-time payment of the required fee. In the event of the death of a member, the member's membership will automatically pass to his/her surviving spouse (if applicable).  
If you need additional information about the Club, you can send us a request using the 'Contact Us' button above, or by contacting a member of the Executive at a telephone number listed on the Club Information page (use the 'Club Information' button to the left). If you wish to join the Club, details are shown on the on-line Club membership application form, which you can view by clicking the 'Join the Club' button at left. To join, please follow instructions on the form.

PLEASE NOTE: Payment of the required membership fee must be made by PayPal using the application form! If you have a problem with this, please use the 'Contact Us' button to send us details.

Members: IMPORTANT SERVICE NOTICE:

AS OF JULY 5, 2021, UPDATING OF THIS WEBSITE AND OUR MEMBERSHIP RECORDS WILL BE SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY. THIS HAS BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT WITH THE RESIGNATION OF ED HUESTIS AS THE CHAIRMAN - COMMUNICATIONS AND MEMBERSHIP.

A message from Ed:
It is with deep regret I wish to inform you that I am unable to continue in the position of Chairman - Communications and Membership Committee (responsible for this website, email communications and our membership records). Unfortunately, this is a result of irreconcilable differences with the board. In any case, since I have been responsible for these activities for 14 years, it is probably a good idea to get new blood on board. However, filling the various Executive and Committee positions has been a chronic and serious problem for the club ever since Royce Olson resigned as president many years ago. To ensure continuity and a vibrant club, we have embraced new technologies to lighten the load, and unfortunately many of the activities handled by volunteers at that time have devolved to the responsibility of this committee (me). In my opinion, unless the club has the involvement of many more members in managing it, it will fail - it is up to you. Thanks for your past support ...
