- Cancellation of Motorcycle Awareness Week
With the changing of the guards, search of two more executive committee members, and a few other factors, the MRA ACT was not able to organise and facilitate Motorcycle Awareness Week or JOE Rider this year.
We intend to restart Motorcycle Awareness Week in the ACT for 2021.
There will also be no October General Members Meeting, as the new president gets up to speed with association matters.
Details for the November General Members Meeting will be published soon.
- Cancellation of the Blanket Run
It is with great trepidation that the MRA ACT have had to cancel the 2020 Blanket Run. This decision has not been made lightly.
With the federal and local government’s responses to COVID-19, we would be in breach of group gathering and social isolation rules, and we would be taking unnecessary risks with your health.
Despite all of this, winter doesn’t go away just because this coronavirus is here, and the homeless and disadvantaged still need your help! If you have already stocked up on blankets for donation, please contact your local Salvation Army depot to discuss safe drop-off.
The Salvation Army would however prefer financial support for this coming winter, as it could be much worse compared to previous years, with more people made homeless with the forecast economic impact. If you can, please see if you can budget a donation.
- Passing of Greg Williams
It is with great sadness that I announce to all our supporters of the MRA ACT, that Mr Greg Williams has recently passed away.
Our condolences go to Greg’s family and friends. Greg was a valued friend and ardent supporter of the MRA’s Toy and Blanket Run’s. Greg supplied each event with all our sound requirements and has done so for more than a decade.
He will be sorely missed by many, we were all honoured to know him.
