Bruce Peacock, #124445

I am seeking a position on our BMW MOA Board of Directors because I think that I can help make improvements to the great organization we already are, make it even better for all motorcycle riders, and help us grow.

I have been an active member of the MOA for over 11 years. In that time I have attended and enjoyed volunteering at many MOA International and Club rallies, mainly in the eastern part of the continent.

Having my own print and design company, I have volunteered to assist a few clubs with the redesign of their crests to meet the new standard as required by BMW, as well as designing one of our international rally crests.

I have been riding since I was 20, but I really got back into it in the last 20 years. After retiring nine years ago, I really picked up on touring and was doing about 10 to 15 thousand miles a year, covering territory from Ontario to Florida (many times) and out to Texas and then north to North Dakota, missing only four states on the East Coast, which I am looking forward to visiting.

I set up our MOA-recognized BMW club and have encouraged our members to come to the rallies and work on the Ontario BMW MOA Getaway weekends in May. I have also been a member of the Red Knights International, a motorcycle club for Fire Fighters. We support many charity rides, one which I chaired, set up and ran for five years, the TOMA Tide for Burn Children.

I sit on three other Boards: a Provincial retirement board as a Director, a local Ham Radio Club board as Vice President, and the Ontario Provincial Board for Air Cadets as an Area Director. I was also president of our local chapter of Rotary International and ran a motorcycle ride for them as well.

As for my background, I have been involved with the Air Reserves in Canada, have run my own printing and aircraft companies, and have my helicopter, airplane and glider licenses. I was with a police department before going into the fire department where I spent 27 years and retired as a Fire Chief.

I feel I could be a great asset to the board in going forth and making MOA even better, gaining more recognition within North America for all riders.
