The Rupnik Report

Je me présente, malgré le fait que plusieurs d’entre vous me connaissent déjà par le biais du “chat group” ou par mes articles dans le “VR”; le volet social du club est un aspect qui me plaît particulièrement. J’étais honoré d’être nommé directeur et d’aider du mieux que je peux dans le cadre d’un hobby que j’aime beaucoup.

Je me suis fixé 3 objectifs pour cette année en tant que votre directeur:

D’être un lien additionel entre VARAC et les membres du Québec.

D’encourager la participation des membres de l’Ontario aux évènements qui ont lieu au Québec.

D’encourager la participation des membres du Québec aux évènements tenus par VARAC.

Lors des deux dernières années, j’ai été la personne ressource pour le Classique d’automne au Mont Tremblant et je continuerai cette tâche avec plaisir pour les deux événements qui seront tenus au Mont Tremblant en 2010.

Let me introduce myself, although if you have read the chat group (or read my articles in the VR), you have probably “met” me before; the social aspect of this club is something that appeals a great deal to me. I was thrilled to be voted in as a director and help out with a hobby that I really love.

As your Quebec director at large – I have personally set three main goals for this year.

To act, if necessary, as a conduit for VARAC items to our Quebec Membership.

To encourage greater participation of Ontario members to visit and participate in out of province events taking place in Quebec.

To also facilitate and encourage participation of Quebec members into VARAC events.

I have been the focus person for the Fall Classic @ Circuit Mont Tremblant for the last two years, and look forward to continuing to perform that task for both the Spring and Fall classic in 2010.
