|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.

fee must be made by PayPal using the application form! If you

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.
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 ...
