SO FAR …
We hope you’ve enjoyed the events of ’21 so far. A kickstart for 12 new members in January; and two practice days with nearly 50 riders each time; perfect riding weather, and lots of smiles. We’re learning as we go, but operating our fantastic club is coming together. And George, Rod and Beau conducted another kickstart today!

REGISTRATIONS & SIGN-ON
Registrations are now open in RiderNet for the next practice day, on Sunday 28 Feb. Please note the following changes that we’re executing to make riding safer, and our (volunteer) lives easier:
NATIONAL PARK GATE
The green gate at the bottom of Belmont Road needs to stay shut. We have serious problems with our lease if other cars (bushwalkers etc) come in and park. Please help us prevent this happening.
We are not allowed to park outside our grounds. Please don’t. We’ll tape the area off from now on. To maximise the space we have, please park tightly in the normal carpark.
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:
Whoo hoo. It’s been so hot. And its been so wet. We managed to sort of have neither for our first Club ride day for 2021; perfect riding weather.
47 riders (many of them new to HJDBC) fired up their machines at 0930 and set to on their Minikhana skills: Orange, Right-Footed Orange; Bending, Right-Footed Bending and Bending Orange(!!); Slow; Figure of Eight and Clover all got a run. There was even a little sly Enduro.
Hats off to Chefs Dale and John for keeping us fed! Mark at XpressoHornsby is always welcome too! Thanks to Jas and John for some impromptu drainage works.
Registration was a little slower than normal as we dealt with lots of first time issues. Expect things to be faster next time.
After lunch the Minicross track got a workover, with all riders “riding to conditions and focussing on practice, not racing”. Lots of fun.
