    Hello Brothers & Sisters I am sitting here, finally having a day off from having the rally over, my f/t job at Costco, my business training new students to ride, and the house work can wait. I am not doing a thing but going over the memories of the weekend, pictures and comments on Facebook, making new friends, the National Forum, emails, all pre-and post times of the rally. WOW!!! I sit here shedding a tear that is is all over. So, humbling to know that this was a successful event, that everyone who came had such an amazing weekend. Every moment was special to me, meeting as many of you as possible personally. For those I did not, I apologize. It was very hard for me to keep track. For those I said hello, some twice or more, lol please share a hug and a hello from me please. All of the time spent with you all was so amazing, so many laughs my ribs and face are still sore. There is always hiccups, drama, oopsies and such, but I feel so enthralled in this feeling of kinship, the feeling of gratitude knowing that I was able to help make this dream of ours hosting the National Rally here a successful one thanks to all of you who contributed to this special event. And for some of you still travelling, it is still not over. Please continue to enjoy every minute of your journeys with an open road, warm wind in your face and a sense of pride in being a part of it all. Knowing your brothers and sisters all across this Nation who were unable to attend are envious of not being able to be a part of it all. But now with current social media and technology they were able to see and feel from those moments we share with them, the feeling of family love. First and foremost, I would like to thank my wife, Amy Hohn, for being a part of this amazing weekend, her love, patience - which was limited near the begging of the weekend as my stress level and concentration to everything limited my attention towards her. Amy's support towards me and the rally, did not go unnoticed. It was originally her idea when we got married almost 3 years ago next door at the Coombs Country Campground to see if we could have a rally here on Vancouver Island. Her contributions she made including, her idea and helping the handling all the door prizes and trying to ensure that everyone walked away with something. Thank you...I Love You!!! To the Coombs Rodeo Grounds, thank you for everything you all did for all of us. Helping to ensure that everyone who needed help was acknowledged and treated well. We shall see you for coffee to say Hi, when we stop in riding out around the area. Don, what can we say, you helped us all in ensuring the quality of enjoyment was had by all. Your dedication to helping the grounds as you do is greatly appreciated. To the other Rodeo Grounds staff and Volunteers, Thank you for everything. To the Dj, Brian, thank you for keeping us rocking all weekend. For being moved all over the place to help us get music and sound to areas of the rally. The lights as well were fun and entertaining for everyone. We are loving the pictures of the bike your wife took. The Renovation Blues Band, thank you for entertaining us with your beautiful music, getting us up there and dancing enjoying the evening. Great Job!! The Pig, oh the Pig. What can we all say, it was absolutely fabulous, Thank you to James and his daughter from Lickety Spit for their time and dedication to their craft. I apologize for the lack of BBQ sauce, I was shocked with myself when someone asked for it and I am a ex chef, I should know that it was needed. My apologies. I hope the rest of the meal was good as well. That was an oopsy. The salmon, that was especially nice as well. Thank you, Blaine & family, for the contributions of these lovely morsels of delight. For the use of the BBQ’s, Robin & Gord, and I am not sure where the 3rd came from, so thank you for the use. The 4th was mine. To Pam & Pam, Tom & Mo, Russ, Casey, and everyone else who helped out in the kitchen during the meals. Without you all there having my back it would of not as gone as well for our members eating such great food we were able to provide. Thank you!!!! A special Thank you to everyone who helped out at the Registration table, with extra special thank you to Gerry for being my right hand in all of this. Having him take on this enormous task of the financial tracking, keeper of the key on registration, keeping all of you all sorted out and ready for arrival. Also, special thank you to Patty and Tara. Patty is currently a member, Blaine's wife, and Tara their daughter were key players in helping get the registration area set up.

Tara was given her patches to the chapter as an honorary member, and we look forward to having you be a part of this family.

The donations from this are being put towards the Port Alberni Toy Run. Thanks for all your help in so many areas. The National Board, thank you for your support and allowance to have the Nanaimo Chapter host this years National Rally. I knew it was a lot to ask a majority of our members to commit to coming so far for this. With your early advice and help I was able to get the officers and committee the confidence needed that we can do this. And boy did we do it up right!!! To every single last person who attended the Rally, Ride out West 2017, Thank you for your contributions, with your registration and purchasing of tickets for various things to help raise funds for the CWF. I know that the dollar doesn't go as far these days, and the time and commitment from all of you for planning your trips, the unexpected expenditures, it can add up, so THANK YOU for making the 11th Annual National Rally Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers a huge success. Our final $ dollar amount donated will be added up in next couple days. We will announce it soon.

All of you need to stand up, take a bow, hug it out and relish in the feeling of accomplishment in being a part of the best National Rally ever!!!

    Just a update on the lawsuit that the CMC was served on back in February of the year. For those unaware the details are posted on another post on this same "special events " forum. On Tuesday July 18th in the Waterloo Region courthouse, the Honorable Deputy Judge James Marentette dismissed the case/suit and while scolding both parties for various actions that he deemed improper. Part of his closing statements and ruling he further advised Ms Anderson that she would be better to sue personally the parties involved and offered a few other suggestions on what she was allowed to do. Overall the whole ordeal was quite disappointing and extremely stressful, however it did provide several valuable learning and life experiences which will be used to hopefully prevent any future similar incidents. I would personally like to thank all the members who supported the CMC throughout this event, it was great to have the court room filled during both days with CMC members there to offer support and advice, thank you all and very much appreciated. I apologize to all the members that were subpoenaed by Ms Anderson as witnesses as I reflect back on this series of events she would never have been reinstated after the original termination, lessons learned and should not be repeated in future. The CMC Board has been also supportive and behind myself who was named in the suit as representing the CMC. Thank you to the Board and also to Stafford and Irma for all their assistance and support all the time. Another CMC member whom I cannot name personally was instrumental in the defense of this suit cannot be thanked or repaid enough for all her expertise and knowledge in the court related procedures is again greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten. My dear wife Sherry has endured far more bullshit and grief than anyone should have to just for being married to the person named in the lawsuit and I hope to somehow make up for all the quality of life this nuisance lawsuit and previous events has sucked out of our lives for many years. Overall I am not sure there is anything gained by Ms. Anderson as the Judge did not allow either party to be awarded court costs. Thank you everyone for the messages and call of support throughout this whole incident and overall it will only make the CMC all that much better and even more the Greatest Canadian Motorcycle Riding Club from Sea to Sea.

Thank you to the National board for allowing us the opportunity to be the hosting chapter, for your support and all the advice. Thank you to the Nanaimo Chapter, and to the rally committee. You have all come together to help make this a reality. Your pride in your community, this brotherhood of family, and respect for everyone involved has made us a riding group to be admired.

    Congratulations Den on your new position as PO for ON and becoming our National Officer. I'm sure that you will serve and represent CMC well. From taking on the position of 1st of 016, where although things looked bleak for a while, you hung in there and created a great chapter, you built it and they came. That experience served you well as a Regional Officer, where you again proved your ability as a Board member to represent CMC and the chapters of Southwestern ON. You have always been willing to take on anything and everything asked of you so there is no doubt of your success in this new position. All the very best with it, Matt

I will try to continue to respect the traditions and core values that have been set,in the coming months and years!! thanks,respectfully,Dunner

    Awesome job Dennis I have learned from you and working with you and our board members has always been a pleasure. Bit nervous, bit humbled and very proud to take on role of ON and National officer. Will do my best not to let the board and my fellow CMC members down. Den

    Neither you Dennis nor Sherry or any of the witnesses should have had to endure any of this. You give someone a second chance, who obviously didn't appreciate it, putting you in a position to deal with it again, and then you end up with all this b.s. With appreciation for all you do, -Irma ps: :If Ms Anderson has the right to sue personally, why couldn't anyone who has lost time off work to witness, etc be able to file against her to be reimbursed with the case being dismissed?

    Thank you Dennis for all your hard work in carrying CMC to where it is today. It is very much appreciated. You more than fulfilled my expectations of the role of Provincial Officer of ON and have been a great National Officer. I'm sure that you feel the same confidence in Den carrying on for you and handing him the key to the executive washroom. All the very best in your retirement - enjoy the ride! Thank you again Matt

    Thanks for the great job you have done Dennis. All of us, who are officers, know it isn't easy, but I know our positions are nothing compared to National and provincial. But you conquered it well my friend, even tho not all agree with all decisions made. I know Biggy will carry on very well. You and Sherry enjoy your retirement. Go ride now and make use of the extra room in the house.

    Jackie Jefkins, Cliff Graham and I rode home together from Vancouver. Day 1 through the smoke and heat filled #3 to Creston. Day 2 started day in mountains and last half in foothills and prairie to Swift Current. Was already missing those twisty, turning roads. We arrived safely without incident yesterday. Jackie and I camped 14 of past 21 days so our bed was calling us? We had a great time at the rally and thank all our hosts, the many volunteers, some of whom we witnessed almost burning themselves out...hats off you guys, it's really appreciated!? We logged just under 8600 km on the bike and, and took in other tours as well. Our riding day seemingly owning the Cassiar Highway is always going to be a pinnacle memory. Our inside passage ferry from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy was incredible and we lucked out on the perfect weather and got to know some new friends, one Elmer who showed up as a new member and attended the rally; he's a keeper?. The Tofino ride was a favourite!! We did the return trip from Combs twice, and not just for the ride but also for Tacofino for fish tacos and Chocolate Tofino for gelato ?! What a great route for going on a foodie mission...think we are moving?. The best part was the people!! So happy so many of our local friends from Manitoba and Saskatchewan came out as well as many of our prior friends from rallies out east. The Village is the best but even we were pretty low key this year. What's up with that?? Gotta work on it!! As alluded to already, the extremely generous hosts on the island...thanks for a great rally. Too bad so many of us were hot and tired Saturday night. That band was fantastic and we didn't do them justice with attendance but through no fault of their own. We enjoyed one slow dance at the end of that night. Happy to be safely home with awesome memories. Till we ride together again ???????????????????? Mark aka Beluga Jackie aka Happiness

    Just a final note on the 2017 National Rally and Chapter 065's "Snaps" aka Richard. Over the course of the event I watched with utter amazement as Richard ("Snaps") traversed the grounds capturing as many moments as possible with his camera. I'm quite certain that he covered over 50 miles and snapped at least a 1000+ photos over the course of the three days. He posted his pictures for all to enjoy and captured some of the best moments and funniest antics of the Rally. "Snaps" provided photo memories that will stand the test of time and be enjoyed well into the future. He quietly went about his business like a stealth news reporter following a hot lead. In fact, I'm certain that non of us really caught the genius of his methodology. But I did see his work and think he did an amazing job. Richard represented the CMC and his Chapter and demonstrated his respect and support of not only the Rally but the CMC as a whole. So I would like to extend a very big THANK YOU to Snaps for providing the ultimate photo memory of this event. Kudos to you "Snaps" for your unwavering support and belief in your Club and your Chapter, your excellent photos and your passion for your craft. Sincerely, Glenn 1st Officer CMC 065 Victoria

    Have been seeing lots of reports and posts of CMC members beginning the migration westward for the 2017 CMC Rally and quite honest I am a whole lot jealous. Unfortunately Sherry and I are unable to attend this years rally and from the sounds of the plans and preview of the agenda it sounds like everyone whom is able to attend will have a lifetime of memories. Travel safely and post lots of pictures as we are all looking forward to virtually attending thru the folks on site. Have a great time everyone

The apparel website is still open and you may place and process orders however the items maybe not shipped until the new location is setup. Thank you everyone for all the support over the years and it has been a pleasure to have been able to be part of the process in making the CMC such as awesome club.

    I am very sad to announce that as of Friday August 11 2017, I will be stepping down as the National Officer and Ontario Provincial Officer for the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers. I had in all honesty been considering this move for a little while however as I always enjoyed the challenge and responsibility and working with the members of the CMC Board, Chapter Officers and most members it was always sort of forgotten about. During my time as the Ontario Provincial Officer and later on as the National Officer I have dealt with several issues that have not always been the most popular or even the correct decision was made. Each event was always made with what I felt was the best for the CMC in general and sadly I have lost some folks as friends who did not agree with some very tough choices or visions that I chose. During the time we have been involved in splitting some chapters, closing some and opening others. I along with others have tried to resolve issues and squabbles that have ruined long time friendships and at other times made some relationships stronger, but always it was done with what was best for the CMC in mind. Since assuming the appointment of the National Officer position my wife Sherry and myself also temporarily took over the CMC Apparel part of the club which has spread out to several rooms of our home to store stock of CMC apparel long with ordering stock and shipping all orders that are made. We also attempted to have CMC apparel available for direct sales at the local National Rallies and other CMC events generally within Ontario. We are also stepping away from this in the near future but as the change over is a bit complex it will be later in the month. Stay tuned for updates regarding CMC Apparel. I have asked Dennis Dunkley aka "Biggy D" to be the replacement National Officer and PO for Ontario and he has readily agreed to do so. Dennis is a CMC original Charter Member of the CMC and lives in the Sarnia Ontario area. Den was the original 1st Officer if the Sarnia 016 chapter and held that position until a couple years ago to dedicate more time to the Western Ontario Regional Officer. Dennis has also been working with several Provinces and areas in the Eastern parts of Canada that are temporarily without Provincial Officers and or 1st Officers. Dennis take this Club to new levels I am sure and I for one look forward to being part of the future CMC under Den and the CMC Boards direction. I wish to thank everyone for all the support during my time as the National & Provincial Officer and I have always been and will remain to be very proud to be a small part of the greatest motorcycle riding club in Canada. To the members who choose not to talk to me or are for whatever reason are mad at me, well thanks too as if that is what makes you happy to be part of the CMC then I have done my job there too. While the recent lawsuit against the CMC and other activities has taken chewed up a incredible amount of my "spare time" I personally wish to thank all the members for the overwhelming support that I have received during that case and continue to do so. Personally I do not feel that issue is not over for me yet but the CMC has been cleared of the nuisance lawsuit and that is a relief. Thank you everyone I can't put into words my gratitude and love I have for the CMC. I want to say a huge thank you to Irma who is the backbone of the CMC and spends hundreds of hours making the CMC tick and run smoothly. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and the CMC. Stafford is the genius of all things technical and has saved my butt more than once after granting me National Officer Superpowers to moderate the CMC forum, something which I am sure he has regretted many a time. Thank you sir for all you do behind the scenes that everyone assumes happens magically. The CMC Board has been a pleasure to work with and has taken shape and become increasingly active since restructuring the format to include all Board members in decision making and policy modifications and updates. Thank you all past and present. Please welcome and support our incoming National Officer, Ontario Provincial Officer and a new Southern Regional Officer TBA. Thanks everyone and hope to see you again on the road Dennis aka Fireden

    Thank you Dennis and Sherry for you tireless efforts. The 050 was just one Chapter that benefitted from your skills as our National Leader. Enjoy your retirement and time spent with Sherry.

    Dennis I know that you did a great job and were a tremendous help in a trying time for some of us. You will be missed as a mentor and your sense of humour will also be missed. You always showed that although CMC is important to all of us that family and life must take precedence. Unfortunately that was not always possible for you. Enjoy your retirement from National and Provincial Officer status and make sure that your pension is just as good as your wages have been. Thank-you for the countless hours that you have put into this club and Thank-you to Sherry for being there for you and the club. Behind every great leader is a guide. As the Iceman once said - I'll be your wingman anytime.

    Thank you Dennis for stepping in and making the CMC a better riding club under your leadership. I remember a time when you said that there was no way you would step into this roll. Well you did at a time when it was left without a leader and in my opinion turn this club around and put back on track. Leadership of over 5000 members is not an easy job but you undertook the responsibility and in my eyes succeeded. Leadership also takes a toll on you and those close to you. Don't think of this as stepping down but as a well deserved retirement from a job well done. Thankyou from Mike "Slade" and Mary (CenCom) Slade. Congratulation Den "BiggyD" we know you will do us proud. ?

Dave will post in 1st officers forum the new chapter he will now represent. Congrats Dave you earned it. Den

    Dennis, Although I have not been with the CMC long and I don't know you very well, all I have to do is look at this organization to see the results of your tireless efforts and dedication. Clearly it has been nothing short of sacrificial for you and Sherry. Well done. Den, Congratulations on your new appointment. I'm looking forward to meeting you soon. If there is ever anything I can do to assist, please let me know.

    If I was asked to describe what kind of 1st Officer you've been, words like encouraging, kind, patient, inspiring, influential, helpful, and a slew of other wonderful adjectives come easily to mind. Hopefully you and Sherry will now have time to just have some fun and ride. Thanks to the both of you for all your hard work.
