48th BLUENOSE RALLY - JULY 6-8, 2018    
Apple Valley Riders - February 26, 2018

Hello Friends!

We are certain that if you had asked members of the organizing group in 1970 if the Rally would last into the 21st Century, they would have laughed and laughed. Well, we would have been wrong. And some of us, still around, are I think, kinda amazed.

We could pat each other on the back, and say, "Well done!" But the "Well done" part must go to the people who come to the Bluenose year after year, for without you, we would have called it quits long ago.

There will not be another 48 rallies. The folk who make up the workers at the event are no longer 22 years old, for one thing. But there IS a rally this year (July 6, 7, & 8) and as every year, we are looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. If you are a former attendee, come back this year, and bring a friend. We love to greet newcomers!

The 2018 Bluenose Rally registration form is now available online at www.bluenoserally.com

The Apple Valley Riders and our partner clubs, especially the BMWONS who are celebrating 40 years as a club, are busy planning another fine week-end for motorcycle rally enthusiasts and we're looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you there!

All the best,
Beth Pineo
Apple Valley Riders

FIM RIDE GREEN GOES CARTOON!    
FIM Press Release - February 22, 2018

Join us and travel through time with Greg Hancock, FIM Environmental Ambassador, and his son Karl, the stars of this story, who guide us through events since 1992 when a group of visionary people at the FIM formed the first Environmental Working Group. Watch the video and discover the key milestones and most thrilling moments of the programme such as the first Environmental Code, the partnership with UN Environment, and the Women + Sustainability conference held in Jerez in 2015.

This video was produced under the direction of the FIM Sustainability Commission Director Kattia Juárez by a Salvadoran production company specialising in animated videos, made up of experienced and talented "millennials" who transformed this story into an entertaining visual work.

Click Here to view the video!

Kattia Juárez Dubón, FIM Sustainability Commission Director: "We wanted to tell the tale but in a different way. We know that the core business of the FIM is sport, at the same time FIM is convinced that sustainability is a fundamental pillar for the future of our sport. Storytelling is one of my favourite techniques for sustainability communication, and telling this kind of story represents a new challenge for me every time. In sustainability, as Elmer Wheeler, one of the best salesmen ever, once said, we must "sell the sizzle not the steak", and to "sell" sustainability in our sports world, we need to engage our audience. I am very happy to have worked with Modjo Studios, who did a great job, and would like to thank our FIM Ambassadors for always helping us to sell the "sizzle".
