Ride to the Max 2018

9th  Annual Ride To The Max

August 18-19, 2018


 The annual Motorcycle Ride and Fundraiser to The Lion Max Simms Memorial Camp for Special Needs People has become the most successful weekend fundraiser for our Camp. Over $19,000 was raised in 2017 This is the equivalent of sending 80 SPECIAL NEEDS PERSONS TO CAMP FOR A WEEK.


 The RIDE TO THE MAX is organized by Lion Motorcyclists of Newfoundland and Labrador but is not restricted to motorcycles only.  It is open to all Lions and their friends whether they ride two wheels or four.


In the past eight Rides we have raised approximately $110,000 to help the Special Needs People that our Camp serves. This year we are aiming for $20,000. Sponsor sheets will be available from all Lions Clubs in District N4 or directly from the contacts listed below. Participants are encouraged to obtain a minimum of $200 in sponsorship. Tax receipts will be issued for $25 and over, if requested. 


The District N4 Ride will start at the Gould’s Lions Club with breakfast from 8-9 AM Saturday, August 18, 2018. Participants can join in along the route or meet at the Camp.

 After arrival at the Camp, supper will be served and then the fun begins. A Casino night of blackjack, poker, bingo etc will be followed by an Auction, where you can bid on donated items with your casino winnings (chips). All who register will receive chips. You are encouraged to bring along items for the auction.


Accommodations at the Camp will cost $35 per person including meals. Accommodations are limited by our 38 bedrooms ; therefore it is imperative that you notify one of the undersigned of your intention to participate as early as possible. Don’t be disappointed. There is lots of Camper space available.


To register e- mail Lion Ron Pond (ronaldpond@nf.sympatico.ca), Lion Carl Chafe at (carl.chafe@mdlz.com) or Lion Rick Brown at rickbrown@nf,sympatico.ca

Hello fellow Lions

It is that time of year again..

Time to report on the fabulous work our clubs are doing in N4. For the clubs that have reported in the past thank you.

I'm sure you will continue on with many great projects.

For the clubs that haven't reported all year I'm asking that you do so now...
reporting your activities not only let's the DG know of all your hard work but also gives other clubs the opportunity to celebrate with you.

Remember there is nothing too small to report.

If you haven't had anything happen as of late but you have something scheduled as a future event
report that to me too who knows maybe it would be if interest of other clubs to support.

If any club is unsure what exactly to report on don't hesitate to reach out to me I'd love the opportunity to work with you.

See you all in April.

Hello Fellow Lions

What an outstanding week-end was had by all at the Convention in St. John’s. I cannot remember ever having so many Lions turn out. Congratulations to Lion Danny, Convention Chair and all the Members of the Waterford Valley Lions Club. The club had all members participate with the convention. I thank you all! It just go to show what can be accomplished when using the” POWER of We” and work as a team. We had all of the Chairpersons who attended give reports. Wonderful!  The presentations given were exceptional. I would also like to thank the new Chair Committees, Hunger and Pediatric Cancer for the outstanding job for the District. I was so proud. Thank-You to all who attended and participated.

I cannot believe that we are into February month already .We have visited 19 clubs to date and have a very busy schedule in the coming months. Lion Mike and I look forward to meeting more members. I have inducted several new Lions this year and from what I understand, many more to join our District. Our current membership is 1192, down 7 members, we have lost 10 Lions through death, my condolences to the families of these Lions, Inducted 88 new Members and lost 82 Members. As we have said in the past, our problem seem to be retention of Members, our GMT and GLT are working hard to try and help clubs with Membership and or leadership problems.   

In the next few months, I hope that all clubs please remember to use the MyLCI and submit your activity reports in addition to your membership reports. We must let LCI know what we are doing. Remember to Report, Report, Report!

During February it is a good idea to think about who will lead your club for next year. Nominations and Elections will soon be here, so give some thought to sounding out some candidates and giving them the information they need to allow them to make a positive decision and ultimately, a positive contribution to your club.  I was extremely pleased to have 8 Lions nominated for District positions at the Convention. If you are considering running for a District position please have your nomination in 40 days before the Elections on April 14th.

Thank You all for your service and dedication Lions.
