Sadie Grimm Celebration and Ride. Fundraiser for Sadie Grimm Commemorative Picnic Shelter. | Sunday, 13. June 2021

The Sadie Grimm Celebration and Ride event is in celebration of Sadie Grimm's 1914 victorious gold medal enduro ride from Winnipeg to Winnipeg Beach. To commemorate her victory, to celebrate women riders and motorcyclings' role in Canadian history, all monies raised in the event will be used to construct a picnic shelter on the waterfront at Winnipeg Beach Provincial Park. As of April 28, 2020, the Sadie Grimm Committee has raised $31,062.33 towards the targeted cost of $45,000 (with all labour volunteered). All committee members are volunteers. 


 Our 2020 event has been re-scheduled (due to COVID-19). All tickets purchased for that event will carry over to the Sadie Grimm Ride starting at the Salisbury House at 787 Leila in Winnipeg, MB between 10 & Noon on Sunday, June 13, 2021, and ending at Winnipeg Beach Bandstand. A suggested route map will be provided. $20.00 for Rider; $10 for others; children under 16 free. Donations welcome. PS. Arrive early! Sals makes a great breakfast!


The Sadie Grimm Celebration starts at 3 PM at the bandstand on Main Street in Winnipeg Beach. The Town of Winnipeg Beach is once again designating parking for motorcyclists on Main Street right in front of the bandstand. Music by Headingly Reunion with Rob Barg. There will be a 50/50 raffle (3 for $5.00), and a BIker blanket raffle or auction.


Pre-registration


All those who pre-register online will receive a small commemorative token that will be created and donated by one of the volunteers.


Pre-registrations will also be sold at CMMG meetings throughout the year, the second Wednesday of Sept, Oct, Nov, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr and May, as well as at the end of the CMMG Safety Rally and Dealer Derby around 5 PM on Saturday, May 1, 2021. An early bird draw will be held for all who are pre-registered at that time!


Personalized Brick


All personalized bricks ordered and paid for by April 30, 2020, will be included in the base of the commemorative shelter.  Construction of the base is beginning May 2020 with grand opening targeted for June 13, 2021.


Community groups, rider groups, and individuals are welcome to support our project by purchasing a personalized commemorative brick. Individual bricks are $200.00.  Each brick can be personalized with 1-3 lines with a maximum of 15 characters/spaces per line. Wording must be appropriate for viewing by small children as the structure is in a public space. Upon receipt of your order, we will send you the form which you will fill out with the details of what you want to be inscribed on your special brick. 


Should you not wish to pay online, you can send a cheque to Sadie Grimm Committee C/o Mary Johnson, Box 1120, Beausejour, MB R0E0C0. Make $200.00 (per brick) cheque payable to CMMG with Sadie Grimm in the re line! Be sure to include your contact information: name mailing address, email, and phone number.


T-shirts/Tank Tops


Anyone wishing to order a T-shirt or tank top can do so by searching "Etsy Sadie Grimm".  You order and pay for them directly online. They will be custom made and delivered to your door. Many thanks to Blacknot Farm who created the design, and is marketing them for us so we can focus on other volunteer activities.
