NEW AT THE CVMG

The CVMG Education Initiative

After two years in development, we're proud to announce that the CVMG Education Initiative is now providing college level scholarships to three Colleges across Canada: Centennial (Ontario), Red River (Manitoba) and Fairview (Alberta).

These partners provide certificate courses in motorcycle mechanics and small engine repair. We provide for a student bursary of $1,000 at the beginning of the school year based on need and a second award of a $1000 to be presented to a student at the end of the year based on merit.

The Education Initiative is part of our ongoing work to introduce the CVMG to a younger audience. We've heard a lot of support for this type of program from the membership and look forward to it stimulating activities for the sections such as ride-ins to local high schools and other events.

Stay tuned! We'll be pursuing other opportunities with Canadian motorcycle journals and a broader social media presence around the program. If you're interested in being more involved with this or have ideas on how we can better get in front of the next generation of enthusiasts please let us know at vicepresident@cvmg.ca (John) or director_e@cvmg.ca (Brock)

The CVMG Enthusiast Pin Program

Long time CVMG member John E. Pepper has come forth with an excellent proposal with the main objective of encouraging and recognizing those within the CVMG that keep old motorcycles running, reward riders who stay active, and to encourage younger members.

This gives younger riders the opportunity to be recognized for keeping older motorcycles running and active, and gives older riders recognition for continuing their passion, and allowing them to use younger machines that may be easier to ride or be more reliable. It will also encourage new, younger members to experience the joys, and overcome the challenges, of riding vintage motorcycles.

Stay tuned to the website for more details on contest rules and award levels, as the finer details are still being worked out.
