    newlive02  2015-08-31 Wrap-up of the Bel Air ride (see here for results):
    Everything was perfect for the ride on Sat. the 29th.  The weather was gorgeous, we had lots of riders, Including 2 new riders,  the trails were beautiful and the volunteers were wonderful.  We had fun Friday camping over with so many of you coming early for the ride.

    Again, a sincere thank-you
     to Angela for managing, Carol for timing and day managing, Mary Anne for tabulations and a big welcome to Debbie for scribing.  Also thank-you to Wendy for pictures and Darice for her editing of the pictures.  Trail marking was done by Rod, Iris and Angela and demarking by Natalie, Diane, Emil and George.  Really appreciated not having to go out and demark after riding 25 miles !!  Glen you did your usual awesome job of vetting.  Thanks for all of the information you provide us. 

  • Welcome to Brenda Tolpa and Debbie Peterson-Bagan and congratulations on completing 25 miles with us.
    Ethan Garn on Ginger completed the 25 as a junior - so congratulations!

    2015-07-04 After the MARS HILLS RIDE - Iris writes: Sorry about the delay in results but the storm killed my internet cable and it didn’t get fixed until yesterday.
    First of all a big thank-you to Glenn Sinclair for vetting and providing us with countless words of advice.
    Without our dedicated volunteers we wouldn’t have a ride.  Angela and Iris marked  trail, Iris, Emil and George demarked trail.  Tracy and Jon scouted and found us our camping spot.
    Carol again timed and was very much appreciated. 
    Linda Cruden, welcome back and thanks for scribing.  Mary Anne, our fabulous results person and expert on all things MTRC, thanks again.  Darice as usual did a great job of pictures so all of us appreciate that.
    We also would like to welcome Syvia Himmelstoss to our club.
    We had 9 riders start and 8 finished. See the Results page.
    Again thanks to all the riders.  We really enjoyed having you compete and thanks for braving that bit of rain at the end!

    Thanks to Carla Loewen from Virden for her knowledge and thoroughness while vetting the horses.  As usual, Carol you were an awesome timer and thanks to Iris for scribing. 
    Of course all the riders who came out and braved the long distance driving, the ticks, bugs, Friday night wind and lightning and crazy hills we thank you. 
    We had several riders who were new to this ride as well as young horses who learned how to handle steep hills.  It really is the most beautiful ride in all of the province so please  come back next year!

    Preregistrations: This year, in order for a ride to be held there must be a minimum of 6 preregistered, prepaid riders.  In order for the 40 to be held we must have 2 prepaid, preregistered riders

    08-11-2014   Anyone wishing to preregister  can send their form and cheque to MaryAnn Kirk at 838 Alfred Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R2X 0T6.  She must receive it a week before the ride.  In order for the 40 mile to be held there must  be at least 2 preregistered riders. It is now possible to use e-transfers  with your pre-registration for a ride. The money needs to be sent to Mary Anne, her e-mail is yaknow3@hotmail.com .  Follow the instructions on your  bank's website. Depending on your institution, there may be a charge for the transfer, but on the other hand, you will save on postage (and possibly on cheque charge)if you send your entry form electronically as well (same e-mail address).
