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.

Board Response to the COVID-19 Situation The Board of Directors met on 06-Apr-20 to discuss the current COVID-19 situation. The related mandatory social distancing, and the current ban on public meetings with more than 15 attendees, has forced us to re-evaluate our current Events and member Meetings program, and the Board has decided the following:
  1. The 2020 Golf Tournament is currently on hold. On 06-Jul-20 we will decide if it is
      appropriate to hold this event, and we will let everyone know then.
  2. The AGM in 2020 is postponed until such time as it is feasible to hold it. The current plan is to
      evaluate the feasibility of holding it in place of the Fall Luncheon on 21-Oct-20. A decision
      will be made in late August.
  3. The 2021 Spring Theatre event is still planned to go ahead, but will depend on whether
      the AGM is in fact held by then.

We will continue to keep you informed of any factors affecting our operations. We know you have probably been bombarded by news and recommendations about dealing with this virus, and can only wish you to be safe at this time. If you have any questions concerning club operations, please send us an email or use one of the Contact Us buttons.

We recently sent COVID-19 information and tips to members - if you wish, you can view these by Clicking Here.
