The RKMC "Grand Tour"
The RKMC "Grand Tour"
From the RKMC International website...

When the club was young, the easiest way to tell others about it was by word of mouth. This meant that
the members had to get out to visit other firefighters, and one of the best ways to do that was to visit Fire
Stations. Someone came up with the idea of rewarding members who made a certain number of visits
with a certificate and a pin. Proof of these visits was needed and so the idea of Grand Tour was born.
After visiting Fire Stations beginning with the letters G R A N D T O U R members were given a pin. Over
the years, other rides were added, RED KNIGHT and FIRE HOUSE rides and for members from remote
areas, a ride to visit TWELVE STATIONS beginning with any letter of the alphabet. For those who want the
ultimate, you can choose the ALPHABET tour which includes all the letters in the alphabet. WOW!
New York Chapter 30 began our quest to finish ALL FIVE "Grand Tour" combinations last year (2018),
with members completing four of the five program tours
. Our goal is to complete the "Alphabet" Tour
(26 stations starting with each letter) this riding season (2019). Other rides will be done as time
permits to finish the rest
out... thus becoming "Grand Tour Masters"!

What is great about the Grand Tours is that it doesn't JUST have to be Red Knights members! Family
and friends may also join us and earn recognition as well... which is EXACTLY what we want to do!

The tours can be done individually or as a group and can be done in any order. We at NY 30 will file all
participants with International for your patches and recognition for those participating in the Chapter
group rides. Come on out and join us for some camaraderie, great riding and some recognition in the
process!!

We will post all participants that earn each Grand Tour ride here on our website.
