RMCC has awarded the Bunny Chartier Perpetual Trophy almost every year since 1998. This trophy was given to honor the memory of Bunny Chartier, a training level driver with exceptional enthusiasm towards the equestrian sport of driving and excellent sportsmanship. When she was in her mid-forties, she abruptly and tragically passed away October 19, 1997 of an aortic aneurysm.

The RMCC Board of Directors in conjunction with Kathy Boerema and Walter Chartier (Bunny’s husband), originally conceived the trophy to be awarded to an amateur training-level driver who exhibited outstanding sportsmanship in carriage driving, improvement in driving skills, the enthusiasm and willingness to help others and love of carriage driving. All these concepts embodied Bunny’s dedication to the club and her unlimited enthusiasm for carriage driving.

In 2004, the RMCC Board of Directors widened the criteria for the award to go an amateur driver who has shown improvement in driving throughout the year as well as support at club activities, or for the club member who has contributed a significant amount towards the club in enthusiasm, time and effort to make RMCC events and the club better. The Board had to widen the criteria because at that time beginner training level drivers were few and far between.

2018 award winner is Dee Deyen for her outstanding enthusiasm, dedication, time and effort spent to better RMCC in the past year. Dee is on her second term as club president and has been enthusiastically promoting RMCC as well as training her 4-in-hand of minis. Congratulations Dee. Well deserved!

Congratulations to Claudia Wilson and Gee Gee for their 2018 accomplishments!
