We held our bi-annual Numbat Rally a couple of weeks ago and what a great long weekend it was. We had about 270 people attend and have had some great feedback from the guys there. We had some great weather with virtually no rain and clear days as is usually the case with our rally’s (all the rain seems to stay over on the Perth side of the hills) The Camp Quality food caterers run entirely by volunteers did a great job and all of the profits going to the kids who really need our support. We ran our usual MRA shop but this year we also sold cool drinks, water, coffee and tea that seen to be very well received by the by the Rally people.
This event as well as being a great three day get away from everything long weekend is also our supplementary fundraiser to top up our funds over our membership fees, so I would like to thank all the people who attended and a huge thank you to all the MRA members who gave up much of their time to make this once again the success that it was.
I send out regular emails to all our members who have given us their email addresses but regularly get about 7 or 8 that bounce back to me. So if you have not received an email from me in the last month then please email me your current email address so you don’t miss out on outdates of rides or safety alerts.
Many membership renewals are due on 30th July this year if you are one of these (please check your membership card for your expiry date) then please use our on line membership renewal on our website www.mrawa.org
Our membership has been growing steadily over the last couple of years (thanks to the efforts of you guys letting people know what we stand for) but we would still like to see it keep on growing so tell your mates or anyone for that matter about us so we can keep up the good work all the Committee have done over the past few years.
We now have about 43 clubs and groups affiliated with the MRA this is a free service we provide to keep them informed with what we are up to. We would like to see these clubs or groups encouraging there members to join the MRA to help us have a stronger voice in fighting for you rights and safety.
UNITED WE RIDE DIVIDED WE WALK
Our AGM is not too far away now (Tuesday July 19th) and I would encourage all of you to consider helping out on the Committee as we have some very dedicated people who have been doing a heap of work for our members and the general motorcycling community for many years and it would be fantastic to get some new people to help us carry on with the successes that we have had recently.
All positions will be declared open at the AGM and voting is for financial members only.
Formal written nominations closed on 21st June but for positions with no nominations will be taken on the night of the AGM as per our Constitution.
Please consider helping.
That’s about it from me for now, please ride safe.
