Hi everybody, Past-President Ken McClelland here. The Motorcyclist’s Confederation of Canada (MCC) has an online survey that it needs all of you to participate in by January 31, 2015. The results will be great info for all of us to have when lobbying as far as the economic impact of motorcycling, and other factors. I completed it, takes about 15 minutes, use the link posted here to participate, please and thanks! http://circum.com/mcc
Our Past President, Ken McClelland was presented with a gift for all the yeas of dedication at our Xmas party,
A few words from Ken,
Huge thanks to the GKMA for a great surprise at last night’s Christmas Party. I received as a gift a beautiful Alpinestars Bogota touring jacket to commemorate my 9 years as GKMA President. It has truly been an honour and privilege to work with such a great group of volunteers, and I appreciate the opportunity. My job as President was actually fairly easy, as we are very fortunate to have extremely talented and dedicated people that work on their particular areas of expertise as it relates to dirt-biking, with great skill. We are regarded by our fellow clubs as one of the, if not THE premier club in the Province, and as being progressive, well-organized, and on the leading edge of our sport as it evolves, and that doesn’t just happen by accident. It takes hard work and dedication by all Executive members concerned, and by all of the equally valuable and dedicated volunteers working in the background. So once again, thank-you to all of you, it has been a gas, and congratulations to all of you for giving back to the sport that we all love. I know that Dennis Rombough will do a great job as President, and urge all of you to give him your un-qualified support, he’s as dedicated as they come.
Best, Ken McClelland
