HJDBC MEMBERSHIP FOR 2022
Memberships are open in RiderNet for 2022. Log on and Select License/ Club Memberships. Select Renew and follow the prompts or follow this procedure.
This is NOT an instant process ... the Club Secretary needs to process it after you've submitted. And you'll need your membership renewed to be able to register for the upcoming Practice Day (or any other event). So please renew your membership now.
You should find if you check on-line that MNSW has extended your licence to the end of 29 July 2022 due to COVID impacts in 2021.
See www.hjdbc.com.au/calendar for the 2022 calendar. Next riding events are Sat. and Sun. 29 and 30 January.
Come along to help prepare the track – and keep it safe and ridable for your child - on Sun 23 Jan. Register your support here.
If you know anyone who is keen to join HJDBC, the KickStart on Sat 29 Jan is now full. There's another on Sat 19 Feb. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're already a member and you're moving up to a bigger bike for 2022, you'll need an Endorsement to your MNSW license. Sat 29 January is your day. You’ll need to respond to email@example.com quickly.
Our first Practice Day for the year is Sun 30 January. Registrations open in RiderNet here. But you will need to have renewed your Club Membership before you can register.
Does your safety gear still fit? Boots, helmet, armour, gloves, pants, Jersey?
We order new Jerseys once or twice a year. If you’ve outgrown your Club Jersey, we’re finalising a new order after the 30 January Practice Day. Reach out if you need a new one.
We need a someone to take on cooking the BBQ at events they attend. 8am start to get the Bacon & Eggs going, but this is your ‘marshalling’ spot for the day … So you’re free to enjoy the riding when not BBQ’ing. Is this you? Please let us know.
We’re getting close .. Practice Days on Saturday AND Sunday are now open for you to register. Please register as soon as you can so we have ideas of numbers. They are separate events - you need to register separately for each. You can come to one OR the other if you prefer. But we will miss you.
Track’s looking good after the Working Bees. If you’ve not already checked your riders bike and gear, we recommend you do so now. We will be Scrutineering.
Looking forward to being back at the track!
A quick thanks to those that came to put in some effort to keep the track your kids ride on safe. We had a great turn out today and heaps was achieved. Thanks again.
Thanks too to George for running an Endorsement session for a few riders graduating to bigger bikes.
Working Bee peeps today:
Many thanks 17 parents and assorted riders who came along to the track yesterday. We got a lot done, and our first ride days on Nov 6 & 7 are looming :-). Special call out to Josh C, our tireless Working Bee co-ordinator.
Next weekend we have one more Working Bee to finalise some outstandings on the track. If you have not already signed up to help via https://forms.office.com/r/Xh0LCtJ1EF - particularly if you did not come and help 24/10, can you please do so?
Also it's not too late to sign-up to get endorsed if you now have a bigger bike than what is shown on your license. Sign up in RiderNet at osm-ma.omnisportsmanagement.com/EventManager/EM_RegEventInformation.aspx?EventId=39%2bRiPMu1VUcU7%2fI3qDS0ui%2frL6Eo8lS
Thanks to the following for the 24/10 Working Bee:
Hi Hornsby peeps
We’re excited for the potential for things to open up soon. The Club’s calendar at www.hjdbc.com.au/calendar has been updated as follows, subject to NSW Health regulation allowing us to proceed.
LOUEE SOCIAL WEEKEND is still on per the Calendar. You will receive an email over the next few days to register for Louee. Double Vaccination will be required.
The AGM and Presentation of 2021 Awards is now Sun 5th Dec, which we will do with a Social Ride day at Hornsby.
We will follow all NSW Health guidelines whatever they may be. Expect that age appropriate proof of DOUBLE VACCINATION will likely be a requirement.
Please check your gear and bikes for fit and operation after such a long lockdown. Whose boots no longer fit? Also check your MNSW License has not expired.
Remember your Club Sponsors. If you need gear do contact Chris at https://www.onthethrottle.com.au. If your bike needs some love, Nathan at SMW at https://sydneymotorcyclewreckers.com.au will be happy to look after you.
Stay tuned for more announcements.
Great day for our belated S1R1 event at Mt Ku-ring-gai. Fifty four riders and lots of smilng parents enjoyed some healthy competition and lots of good cheer.
Congratulations to the Podium placers, and all riders.
The riders elected Club Captains for the year. Congratuations to Sam, Lucy, Amy and Alex for stepping up to represent their mates. You can see them listed on the Awards page here.
Photos from the day are in the Club’s photo gallery as usual, here.
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.
This Sunday the Baulkham Hills JMTC Interclub is on at Horsley Park. If you’ve not already registered, please use this link to do so, come along for a fun day, fly the HJDBC colours, and see 200 bikes roar.

After Sydney’s recent rain deluge, we went from glorious sunrise to perfect riding weather for our 4th practice day for the year.
Forty Five riders practiced the events that will feature at the upcoming Baulkham Hills Interclub on April 18, and readied themselves in mind, body and bike for the big day.
Thanks to the Canteen Team of Dale, John, Jas, Jackie and Kevin for the Burgers and other offerings.
Thanks to Jamana for stepping up to help Adrian with the sign-on process.
