march club meeting

A draft of the 2015 calendar was proposed at the meeting. ( see calendar page) if anyone knows of any dates that clash, or other issues, please let us know.

We are also looking into the idea of putting the club onto Facebook. Again if anyone has any thoughts on this , please speak up.

3 members obtained their officials licence in the last month. A hugh thankyou, as this will relieve the pressure on the few officials already.

Anyone interested in a social calendar. If so, possible dates & venues, remember this is your club, & you get a say in it.

Next meeting 7th April 2015, Totness Hotel 8pm ( 7.30pm if having a meal first )

Working Bee 24th August

Posted by Ben on August 6, 2014 at 5:35 AM Comments comments (0)

We will be having a working bee at the Borthwick track on Sunday 24th August 2014.  Our track got  a good work out, and needs a little attention before we can ride again. Please bring shovels and rakes to fill in holes. Time will be 10am - 1pm. Juniors and their parents are also encouraged to attend, as they are part of the club.

The next ride day / sleep over 20/21st September will depend on the results of the working bee & track condition. We will advise after our September 2nd meeting.

A very successful day with a good turn out, although challenging due to the recent rains and a very muddy track.  Thanks to Lee & Malcolm for organising & running the day, & to all other helpers involved.  The track is now in need of repair & hopefully will be good with 7 weeks rest.!!

24 hour

A huge thanks to all involved in the help & support for our check point at the 24 hour enduro.  Everything ran smoothly, including the team building exercise of moving a bogged van before the event even started!!

The weather was kind (very little rain during the event) although a little icy at 5am.( Forecasts had predicted the night to be South Australia’s coldest for two years) The track was very boggy, and claimed many riders. An unusual experience for even seasoned riders was to have creeks flowing full time, huge water crossings and hillsides that became skating rinks

Starting were 25 Open Sidecar, 102 Open Solo and 19 Rally (one being sidecar), tackling the 190km course over 4 laps, over the 24 hours.

Only 6 Sidecars, 56 Solo and 10 Rally riders to finish the event, showing just how tough and unforgiving the 24 Hour is. 

Thanks again, the riders would not be able to compete if not for people running check points.
