Big news from the Women’s Sportbike Rally!
Dear Sportbikegirls and our wonderful supporters,
Our goal is to create a fun and meaningful rally for you to attend and be proud of for years to come. After 11 years and countless hours, emails, calls and miles… our beloved Director, Stephani McIntyre, and event coordinator, Dawn Chappell, have both decided to step down from their respective positions in 2017. We owe them a lifetime of love and respect for what they’ve done leading up to this point and the legacy they leave behind. We know a decision like this is never easy, but we look forward to having them continue as rally attendees and participants for as long as the rally continues.
As our group grows and changes, ensuring its success to positively impact the motorcycling community is an ongoing challenge. This year will be a year of transition and change and we want all of you along for the ride!
We’re excited to announce that Brittany Morrow will be taking over as the new Director of the Women’s Sportbike Rally. Previously, Brittany was the event coordinator for the West Rally since its inception in 2015. She has also been attending our events since 2007. Her work as an advocate for safe riding and event coordination experience makes her the perfect choice for this role. We are looking forward to the future with Brittany at the helm, as she hopes to continue WSR traditions as well as grow and evolve the event for years to come.
As part of our new direction, we are building a volunteer operations staff to support the events going forward. We need your help!
Our hope is that we can create opportunities for women from different walks of life to collaborate as a team, generate fresh ideas, and use their specific talents to reach more women in a positive and meaningful way through our rallies. Are you willing to share your skills and talents (or perhaps just some of your time and a few social media clicks) to support one or both events?
We will be working with volunteers throughout the year to share our knowledge and lessons learned, transfer business relationships, and provide support.
If you are interested, please let us know by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
Much love and respect,
Brittany, Dawn, and Stephani
