Seldom do I get to make an announcement as important as this to our club. If you remember, our President Steen Hansen, started this club in a show of hands in a field one fall at Wild Bills track. In a few brief years we have grown to a club of over 60 members, possibly the largest MX club in all of Canada.
Steen announced today that he is retiring now that the club is up and running. In his wisdom, Steen has proudly named our own Michelle Grier as our new President! Along with that, he has asked the enthusiastic Todd Westly to join the now 4 person executive of Michelle, Hugh,Todd and myself.
I cannot think of 2 more perfect candidates for the positions...what with Michelle's organizational and communication skills and Todd's pure love of Motocross and eagerness to always help.
Both have expressed a willingness to help continue to run the club with Steen's vision of fun and friendly vintage motocross as a priority.
Please take a moment from your busy days to maybe make a personal phone call or send an email to:
Steen...to thank him for his lifetime commitment to motocross and for starting and running this awesome mx club
Michelle...to thank her for all of her work in photography, show presentations, website administration and now accepting the position of President
Todd...for being willing to step up and assist in the running of this great club with all of his fantastic motocross and personal skills
In order that we properly honour the service of Steen as past president, he is awarded a lifetime honorary membership in the club. A plaque commemorating same was given to our chief today!
Looking forward to continued success in 2018!
Mitch and Hugh
