We’ve talked about introducing a new role for two of our senior riders to be elected by their peers to represent the other riders in 2021. Riders eligible to be nominated for Club Captain are those fully paid member riders in the 85cc and JBW classes, as at the first competition day of the calendar year.
Up to two Club Captains may be nominated from the rider members of the Club and voted in by the rider members of the Club – one from each of 85cc and JBW classes.
Club Captains may nominate themselves or be nominated by their peers. In the case of being nominated by their peers, they must accept nomination before a vote takes place.
Club Captain responsibilities include:
If your rider is in JBW or 85cc, talk to them about the role of Club Captain and encourage them to nominate themselves, or nominate who they think would be a great Club Captain.
We will ask for nominees during rider briefing, and once we have nominees from each of JBW and 85cc we will run a vote by show of hands to vote in the Captains.
After this years' weather challenges, it was exciting to attend our first Minikhana competition event for 2021.
About 170 riders from five clubs came together for seven different Minikhana disciplines: Minicross; Footed Clover; Ring Return; Bending; Orange; Looping; and Accelerate Brake. See BHJMTC's results post here, and HJDBC photos here hjdbc.smugmug.com.
Congratulations to all who medaled and/ or podiumed, and to those from Hornsby able to attend. And special mention to those attending their first Interclub; spread the word to other new members of the Hornsby family about how much fun Interclubs are.
You now have two events in Ridernet to register for:
Plus, if you're interested in some great coaching for MiniCross, Michel from Racepace (www.racepace.com.au) is running a clinic on Sat 22 May that's open to all riders from all Minikhana classes 50cc and up. Book with Racepace direct, not though RiderNet, and not through HJDBC.
Note for your planning that if you do attend RacePace, we have a Competition day the very next day, Sun 23 May. All dates in hjdbc.com.au/calendar.
Lastly, one last reminder about the KICKSTART running this Sat 24 April. There are still spots available, so if you know someone who wants to get into the wonderful world of Minikhana, you need to act now. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org today.
See you in two weeks.
