Working Bee Outcome

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:

  • Cleaned the container out
  • Cleaned up the section setting gear
  • Trimmed long grass
  • Cut the growth over the fence along northern and western fence lines
  • Move clubroom furniture
  • Cleaned the walls
  • Patched & poly-filled the holes
  • Made a great start on the painting with the skirting boards
  • Patched holes in the roof
  • Mulched a stack of cuttings
  • And much more!

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.

Glenmaggie 2021 Wrap up and results

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.

That’s a wrap!

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.

Thank you Les!

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.

OMCC Summer Series Round 4 & Series Results

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:

  • 85 unique riders across all 4 rounds
  • 25 riders competing in their very first trial
  • 480 sausages consumed
  • 0 piece of paper required (all digital sign up & sign on)
  • Most popular class: T5/Clubman with 28 riders
  • 11 First time observers

We hope to see you all at Glenmaggie at Easter.

Changes to the sign in process at the Club & AMA membership card policy

Hello OMCC Members,


Most of you should be familiar with our QR code process at signon.

We have decided to make some tweaks to it, to include the expiration date of your AMA Membership. For those that have entered the summer series, you will already have this information as it was required at entry, but for those that dont please make sure you get it as it’s now a mandatory field at sign on for practice as well (see image below). The QR code hasn’t changed, and this is effective immediately.

The club has introduced a policy that your AMA membership card (digital is fine) must be able to be presented to a grounds supervisor on request. So we encourage all members to take a screenshot or download of your membership card and keep a copy with you. It has your expiration date on it as well which is needed for sign on.

To do this:

  1. Go to: https://amaclubs.com.au/
  2. Login
  3. Membership Menu
  4. Members Area
  5. Member Cards
  6. Download your member card (pdf format)
  7. Save it to you phone so you can present it when asked by a club official or grounds supervisor

It is your responsibility to ensure you are riding with adequate coverage under the AMA, however the club has plans to spot check riders from time to time.

OMCC Summer Series Round 3 Results

Can you believe it! We’ve had 76 unique riders across the three rounds of the summer series which continues to go from strength to strength in terms of attendance and support. Again we would like to give a big thank you to the volunteers who help make events like this run, and in particular our observers who allowed is to run another fully observed trial.

The results are in, and there are some changes to adjust for those riding for no award, and the compression of T2 & T1 grades.

The 3 best scores will be counted towards the series total, so there is still an opportunity for improvement at the next round on Saturday Feb 20th.
