Wayne Broady was a member of HJDBC in his younger years and his son Sean was also a member from 2014 to 2018.
This is an article that Wayne himself has written about his recent ordeal and it's been published in the latest edition of Australasian Dirt Bike Magazine (April).
Have a read of his article here...it's an amazing story and the HJDBC family are very glad we could contribute to his recovery.
Hopefully this will encourage others to register as donors to help save more lives.

Well..well..well....... We’re back!!
Amazing work today riders in very tough conditions.
Hornsby won the day overall by percentage and we won most podium points. Thanks to all mums dads and the committee for giving it all you have.
Photos will be available in Smugmug as usual .
Who’d have thunk it … The Kick Starters had fabulous weather for dirt biking on Saturday, and that afternoon, you’d have thought we were in line for more of the same for our second practice day Sunday. But no; the alarm clock heralded a huge downpour that lubricated the car packing exercise, and then was on and off for the rest of the day.
Of course, these machines are not called clean bikes … and the Hornsby family set to to get some practice in. Event area 1 hosted Looping and Bending; Slow was delightfully slow; Accelerate and Brake was fun in the mud; (Wet) Footed Clover was challenging; Mini-cross was a blast with up to 12 on the track and puddles galore; and enduro got a look in again too. The Nippers sampled a bit of most, with some coaching thrown in.
Hard to see under those helmets, but pretty sure there were a lot of smiles today.
Welcome to those new to the Hornsby family who were having their first Hornsby day today. Lovely to welcome new members to the club.
Many thanks to Karen and Kristen for sorting the canteen, and to the Marklew family for their kind donation of sausages for today’s feast.
Thanks to Rod and Beau for assistance with the impromptu nippers clinic today.

A post about Saturdays’s kick start follows below.
Next event is the BHJMTC interclub on Sunday 15th March. Gonna be a hoot!
Unlike the last kickstart which was held in teaming rain today’s weather was awesome for the 8 kickstarters who came to HJDBC.
It was a sea of blue with 6 Yamaha ,a Husky 85 and Suzuki 70.
Once again we had coaches Rod & George who were assisted with our now well seasoned demo rider Beau #98.
We blitzed the theory side of the course in great time which gave us plenty of time to get lots of practical riding in.
The boys and girls were exemplary, they listened and followed all instructions to the tee.
After doing some technique drills around the witches hats we practiced some uphill & downhill drills up and down the berms of the MX track.
We then cut plenty of laps on the MX track to the point that the kids (and the coaches & parents!) were all worn out and were ready to call it a day.
A special mention must go to all the riders who were extremely mindful of the abilities of the smaller kids and were very considerate and safe when riding near them. Also Beau was a great role model today and was very helpful and patient with the all the riders in showing them the way around and the correct techniques.
