The Tiny Robins Centennial Trophy

The newly restored Tiny Robins Centennial Trophy is on display at Jim’s Vintages Garages thanks to the vision and craftsmanship of Della and Jim Beattie. The Tiny Robins Trophy will feature the names of all the AMCM Presidents as well as winners of the Heritage Classic TT. Ralph Gibbs was the winner of this new event in it’s inaugural year (2021) and he now shares a row with other past MMC 50 lap winners from the 70’s.
Della and Jim are working out the plans to replicate numerous MMC endurance rides from the 60’s to be used in future years.  In the Heritage TT ride the TT stands for timed trials; it is not a test of speed it’s about arriving at predetermined checkpoints on time and not getting lost.  Your progress is tracked with time stamped photos. If you get your name on this trophy you will have earned it, just ask Ralph Gibbs!

____________

The Dunlop Trophy 

The Dunlop Trophy is on display at Jim’s Vintage Garages and museum.
Thanks again to all involved for the great work done restoring this Manitoban motorsport treasure that dates way back to 1911.

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.
