The Tiny Robins Centennial Trophy
Ray Houde passed away on Wednesday, January 26th. He was a long-time member of the Manitoba Motorcycle Club, actively participating in both races and riding events. Gregarious by nature, his nickname was ‘Gabby’ and he was always there to lend a hand, or shoot the breeze. Ray was also an original member of the Antique Motorcycle Club, and valued the friendship and activities that this provided. A devoted Harley rider, his concession to aging was to trade in two wheels for three, so he could remain on the road.

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.
