    DISTANCE RIDING CLINIC took place on February15th 2014 ;9am-4pm; many thanks to    BestStables-29040SaptonRoad for the use of their indoor arena, and to Dr Glenn Sinclair, Maura Leahy, Jessica Mannes, Wendy Carnegie, Daryce Whyte (and her Tia Maria) for demonstrations, instructions and explanations. THANK YOU !

    Changes to the website: Please note that the FORUM has been abandoned, because it was constantly under attack from spammers, and use by members was minuscule. In addition, old minutes and photo galleries were ‘pruned’ off the site, for the sake of easier maintenance and faster loading. The information is not lost, though, our Board members have received archived versions. We are not turning our backs on the club’s long history.

    2014 Riding Season in a nutshell - or rather, nicely summarized - in a pamphlet: read, download, print out, distribute it and then, most important, come out to ride! The pamphlet (big THANK YOU to Kelli for producing it again) contains the ride schedules for both MTRC (competitive rides) and DRM (endurance rides), contacts, membership application and ride fees, and also condensed rules and general introduction to the sport.

    The latest members’ miles ridden are posted, updated with 2013 data (thanks, Kelli!). Go through the members page.

    15-06-2013 Anyone wishing to preregister and save a bit of money 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 done 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).
