Club Update - October 2018

Posted 14 October 2018

What a big year so far – and still at least 6 race meets to go!

Gove Toyota BMXNT Titles 2018

This was an enormous success for our club and community. Even if you didn’t race, hopefully you managed to make it to one of the race nights – the atmosphere was electric.

Again, many thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the event. This was certainly a team effort.

Many riders are now riding around with NT plates – something that is theirs for life!

Annual General Meeting - Sunday 4 November 2018

All positions will be declared vacant and the club is looking for new people with fresh ideas to join the committee.

I will not be standing a President next year, with a number of the committee also standing down. If requested by members, I will continue on the committee in a support role to the incoming committee and President.

I encourage anyone with an interest in BMX to consider their involvement and how they can contribute to the club. The club has gone from strength to strength, and now it is time to enjoy the hard work of recent years.

Find attached nomination form and flyer – please share.
