2020 Bert Bentley Mileage Challenge Winner  

For those who missed the November meeting, we announced Chas Peters as the 2020 Bert Bentley Mileage Challenge winner.  Chas turned 80 years old this summer and earned a total of 13,702.5 mileage point riding two of his motorcycles in a year where you couldn’t really travel outside of Manitoba.  Putting on a ton of miles is nothing new to Chas, the odometer on his 1975 BMW R90 reads a stunning 361,866 miles
.
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. Chas has picked Joe Sawtus to be the honouree for 2021.

2020 AMCM 44th Annual Corn Roast 

A beautiful sunny day to socially distance at the Choquette’s acreage for some motorcycle games and great conversation.  Thanks again to John and Pat for hosting (44 years in a row). Special mention to Chas Peters who drove his new leaning side-car out from Morden, with a stop at Princess Auto in Winnipeg for a quick repair and help from Jamie and Dave to fix a broken clamp.  
Over $500 was also raised for Spina Bifida, helped greatly by Tony Yates who donated his winnings from the 50/50 draw $182!

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.
