Did You Know? December 2020

Here we are in December with the usual Winnipeg winter still holding off for a few more days at least.

As the Club begins to prepare for 2021, my term as… Read More »Did You Know? December 2020

Did You Know? May 2020

The Red River Board has been busy during this time of social distancing to come up with some safe but fun activities. The first was a couple of weeks ago when 10 members dusted off their cars and did 4 Birthday drive- bys for kids having quarantined parties . I’m not sure if the Kids were more impressed with the cars or the noise of all the horns. We now have two more safe events coming up. First on Sunday… Read More »Did You Know? May 2020

Did You Know? November 2019

It is that time of the year. I’ve put my car into storage, but I had to wait for the snow to melt after that mess we had at the beginning of October! I’ve also made the switch to the collector car MPI coverage when I put it into storage. I initially resisted this switch strictly on pure vanity, since I didn’t like the colours of the plates (black on yellow, going back to Manitoba’s original plate colours, for those… Read More »Did You Know?
