2017-07-20 We have had to change the date of our next meeting. Date is now Thursday, August 3 at Smitty's in Selkirk at 6 pm. We need to encourage as many members to attend as possible as we will be discussing future rides so want as much input as possible from the rider's.
2017-07-17 Bel Air ride on July 22 - info and directions
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current EIA situation in Manitoba, MTRC will be requiring a valid proof of negative Coggins test effective with the Spruce Woods event being held August 26. Due to time constraints we will not enforce the Coggins requirement for the Bel Air event to be held on Saturday, July 22, though we encourage all riders to get the test done as soon as possible.

2017-05-30 Regarding the May 27 cancellation of Sandilands, Janine writes:
"I would like to apologize to all for the cancellation of the Sandilands Ride on Saturday May 27,2017. I am deeply sorry for any inconvenience, however things went beyond my control and I felt I needed to give everyone some time to re-organize their day. I do not take canceling a ride lightly and am still considering re-scheduling if an appropriate day is available for those that may be interested. Sincerely Janine Thomson"
Don’t take it too hard, Janine! Things happen, and you did your best, we are still grateful.

To all PROSPECTIVE NEW RIDERS - if you are new to the sport and unsure of yourself, do come out to ride with us anyway! We will match you up with a mentor, someone with experience in competitive rides. You can also e-mail us beforehand.
Preregistrations: 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
Anyone wishing to pre-pay can send their payment to MaryAnn Kirk at 838 Alfred Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R2X 0T6. She must receive it a week before the ride, or it can be dropped of at anyone of the executive at least 1 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. The money needs to be sent to Mary Anne, her e-mail is email@example.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). Do not send your entry form electronically, just the money. Bring the form along with you to the ride.
Getting ready for the next riding season? Iris has prepared several useful checklists of gear that you may wish to not forget taking along. Look for it on the Useful Info page.
