Today is the push to Ottawa. However, we are taking a moment to pay tribute to one of our lost riders who passed in the area back in 2015 to an tragic accident. Our very own Wayne Boone. RIP good sir we salute you at this time, remember your contributions and love of what you did and how you influenced others and supported our event and what it represents.

Thank you to the Base Padre for your words of encouragement and memory to this man our friend.

Today is quite the scenic day thanks to Mr Kendall and his choice in routes. We head out under the watchful eyes of the Base MPs and OPP and thru the town only to be met up with the OPP on the other side of town and escorted all the way to the Glenora Ferry. It is nice to see old friends who used to work with me now having a successful career with the OPP. Small world when I took of the helmet and he saw me, lol.

On this great little gem and the skipper was the same as last year, donated and after hearing the story of our Joe, permitted Joe to captain the ship across part of Lake Ontario. And of course, I got the video of such for proof that Joe was a skipper for a few minutes.

Well on the other side we were met buy 3 members of Kingston’s finest (KPS) their community policing unit and well we get another police escort into and thru the city. And!!!!!!!!!! We get a photo Op at the Old Kingston Pen, complete with road closure just for us.

Need to thank our good friend and Kingston Rep Sylvain L, for this present and all his hard work because it was the best showing of support ever in Kingston at the ANAF Club. 

Thanks buddy you rocked it this year and you are the reason it was such a success. Also, thanks to my old friend Daryll M and “The Body” for their support and friendship.

Off and riding our next stop for some of the local sights is complements of Stoney and Barry into Perth Brewing while some of us chilled with Wendy’s 99 cent frosty cause it is hot and humid in ON.

This year we change our venue to Charlton Place RCL #192 has our Ottawa main stop. Greeted by a full house of supporters and like-minded people who partook in Fish & Chips, Silent Auction and other fun filled events.

We sold SWAG, gave presentations and honoured those who came before us. It seems that I am getting pretty good at this speaking thing and have picked up the name “Preacher” which I kind of like in a Clint Eastwood kind of way. When a padre complements you on your sales pitch it much be pretty good. 

We also presented Spenser with his Back Crest and his nickname of “Tigger” because of his bouncy bouncy bouncy personality.

After raising so much money and awareness of our cause we headed out to the CPC where the RCMP are sponsoring our riders with free rooms and meals over the next two days.

We are looking forward to a day of rest……………. or rather I am, lol.

 

The Military Police National Motorcycle Relay (MPNMR) was founded in 2009 as a way to build comraderie between Military Police motorcycle enthusiasts. It has grown to become a great supporter of charities such as the Military Police Fund for Blind Children (MPFBC).

The Relay is open to anyone (military or civilian) who wishes to join us for a day, a province or the entire National Relay.

The Relay is organized by a National Committee and Regional Committees in each province. Please take a few moments to peruse our website.

Tune in each week for event updates!
