WELCOME to MDDA

We’re glad you stopped by to visit our website on distance driving. Perhaps you’ve just discovered MDDA and want to learn more about just what we do. Perhaps you’ve come to check the schedule to see when and where competitive drives are being held or check the results of past drives. Or perhaps you are just interested in looking at some photographs of our horses and drivers at the various competitions. Whatever the reason, thanks for browsing and drop us a line if we can answer any questions or be of service to you.

Mary Clapper

It is with great sadness that I must report the loss of one of our long-time members, Mary Clapper. She passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack on Thursday, April 20. Mary was only 60 years young, and had been involved with MDDA since early in the organization’s history. She was also a long time member of the Castle Rock riding group.

Her visitation is scheduled from 9:00 to 11:00 on Thursday, April 27 at the Ritchay Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids, with the service to follow. The Ritchay Funeral home is at 1950 12th Street South, Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54495-0847. (715) 423-1414

She will be sorely missed, and we send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to her husband Larry and all the family.
