Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GWRRA is requesting all chapter and district meetings be postponed for the time being. Unfortunately, due to the fluidity of the situation, we cannot begin to estimate the length of time this request will remain in effect. But we can assure you GWRRA is in continued communication with health entities and municipalities across the country for the most up to date and accurate information.
We would also like to mention, Wing Ding, which is to be held in Springfield, MO, from 6/30-7/4/2020, is NOT being postponed and/or cancelled at this time due to it still being several months away.
The Gold Wing Road Riders Association Canadian Prairies District was formed January 1, 2018 when GWRRA eliminated its regions. British Columbia and Alaska, formerly of Region J, broke away and Manitoba, formerly of Region K, joined its prairie neighbours.
The district now stretches from the Rocky Mountains in Alberta through to the western tip of Lake of the Woods in Manitoba, encompassing the breadbasket of Canada.
The Canadian prairies has about six million people. As of the mid 20th century, some parts of the Canadian prairie region have been experiencing accelerated growth as a result of a boom in the production of oil.The primary industries in the region include agriculture involving the rearing of cattle and sheep and the cultivation of oats, canola, wheat, and barley. Fort McMurray in Alberta has Oil Sands making the region essential to the role it has played in the advancement of the national petroleum industry in Canada. Other industries in the region include agriculture and oil refinery.
Oil is pursued in all three provinces. Saskatchewan is a world leader in the production of mustard seed.
There are six GWRRA chapters in the district.
