Entries close 2nd July 11:55pm
Unfortunately the club will not be open this Sunday May 30th due to the current circuit breaker lockdown in Melbourne.
We hope this is only a temporary measure, and look forward to seeing you all back as soon as the restrictions are eased.
I am sharing the changes made to the AMA Vic Winter Series Calendar plus a change of location for the Titles.
All updates are reflected on the OMCC calendar: https://www.oakleighmcc.com/whats-on/omcc-calendar/

Firstly thanks to the Worland’s, the land owners. They went to a lot of effort to assist with the set up of the trial as well rather than just simply make the land available.
I’d also like the thank the amazing efforts of the people involved in setting up the trial: Greg & Reece Chalmers, Jimmy Dunger, Matt Kerr, Craig Genner, Simon Watts, Les Pattinson, Peter Wines, and Simon Colombo.
There was a Pub Meal on the Saturday night and it’s fair to say we will do that again.
I haven’t got around to the series points yet, but here are the results from Round 2.
Following on from the success of the summer series and Round 1 held by Southern Trial Riders, OMCC are launching into their first round of the winter series at Winchelsea.
This will be round 2 in a 5 round series.
Camping is available Saturday night at no charge, just please bring all your rubbish home as there will be no bins.
Entries close Thursday prior to the day of the event @ 11:55pm.
All entries are via: https://trials.com.au/VICWinterSeriesRd2
Thank you to all our very committed members who made it today in some particularly terrible weather. Despite the conditions we had 48 members come along to help (some of these are family memberships, so there were more than 48 bodies) and you could tell as the car park was full of cars.
The weather limited what we could do however we still managed:
From all accounts, this was one of the best turnouts in our recent history.
It’s understandable that not everyone can make it, and I appreciate those who have reached out and let me know and offered an alternative. We will be having a ‘make-up’ day on Saturday 24th April to finish the club room painting and non-attendants will get a follow up email.
Thank you again…big things are happening at OMCC and this club spirit is a big part of it.
Thanks to the 109 entrants, 25 of which came from interstate. It was a warm, but relaxing weekend. Due to the recent rains, the creeks were up and there was a number of areas we could not use. We even saw a few drowned bikes.
We raised over $2500 for Tim Coleman’s recovery efforts through camping fees and donations.
We are looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
Results below…photos to follow.
Yesterday was the final wrap up of the summer series with a trophy presentation, social ride day and BBQ.
Congratulations to all our award winners and also Rocky, our newest life member.
This is why you want to be a member of OMCC! Here is Les Pattinson who set sections for us at the Summer Series. Then he observed at the Summer Series. Then he realised some of the newer riders were struggling in a few areas so he reached out to them. Then he ran an impromptu training session on Thursday night for them! Thank you Les.
Well, that’s a wrap for the OMCC 2020/21 summer series. Round 4 was completed yesterday after a bit of a lockdown scare but we made it! Thank you to the riders who came from far and wide to participate. We are glad you came, and from the feedback most of you enjoyed yourselves.
These things can’t happen with an army of volunteers and so I would like to thank all the section setters, observers, Janina Gorski for the excellent work on the BBQ and the entire OMCC committee for their support.
Don’t forget about the trophy presentation on the 14th March. All entrants, and volunteers are welcome to visit OMCC club ground for a day of social riding, BBQ Lunch & a trophy presentation.
Some stats for the series:
We hope to see you all at Glenmaggie at Easter.
