January Movie Nite is Virtural (again)

Tuesday January 25th 2022 7:00pm socializing, 7:30pm meeting

Unfortuntily with the current state of covid in Manitoba we are unable to have our January movie night at Keith B’s Save the Rust Museam.

Just to keep things interesting we’ll have a short meeing to discuss/recap some current items with the club.  We’re also awarding the “Hard Luck Trophy” and are asking anyone with tales of hard luck from 2021 to either join into the meeting or email them to President Jeff M, who will read it on your behalf.

Watch for an email Louis.  Meeting start is at 7:30PM

As a tribute to the late Bill Fraser we will also show his move “The Locomotives of Bienfait” for anyone interested in seeing it.

Thank you to all the AMCM members that tracked the miles driven on their vintage motorcycles from spring up until the finish line at our October meeting.  All distances driven are converted to “miles” and adjusted or “bumped” depending on the age of the Motorcycle.

July 12, 1949 ~ July 19, 2019 Dianne Best passed away peacefully to the sound of music on Friday, July 19, 2019 at the age of 70, at Ste. Anne Hospital, Manitoba. Dianne will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Dianne was a unique and special woman that lived life to the fullest; who wanted to experience it all. The family would like to thank the staff at Ste. Anne Hospital for the care and compassion they gave to Dianne. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, July 26 at 1:00 p.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Ave. E., Beausejour, MB. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dianne’s memory to Guardians of the Children Canada, 917 Calrossie Blvd, Winnipeg, MB R3T 0W9.

Update – About fifteen AMCM members attended Diane’s funeral. Her best friend Arlene told numerous stories that gave us an insight into her, she was truly an amazing person. Did you know she had her pilots license and restored a crashed plane, and that she placed in a figure skating competition when she was 50. She will be missed.

Many subjects were discussed but the main focus was on gearboxes.
15 people were in attendance and while there were many interesting bikes on display inside the shop there were none in the parking lot.

 

Great tech night at John Thompson’s tonight. Thanks for hosting John ,sharing your knowledge of pre-war transmissions and letting us have a look through your shop to see what you’ve been up to.
