May Communication to Members

During April we were so busy getting ready for OMCCs showpiece event of the year, the Glenmaggie Easter Trial, that we didn’t get any comms out. We are back on schedule now but as a result this update is pretty full!

Jumping ahead, there is training Sunday 29th May for Beginner Adults thanks to Stan Mularczyk. If you can make it, please let the club know: https://forms.gle/o4QRNqALfbganyLg8

New members are welcome, and day memberships are also available (conditions apply). 

Glenmaggie 2022 done & dusted!

It was so nice to see 100+ riders for the first time in years at an OMCC trial. Thanks to all our interstate riders who made the journey. We had groups from QLD, NSW, CBR & TAS, including a few Victorians who drove 5+ hours! To return the favour, there is a large contingent of OMCC riders heading north for the Canberra 2 Day (more details below). For those of you who made it we hope you had a good time. The talk around the campgrounds seemed to suggest most of you did. 

It was a herculean effort by the organising team with the amount of rain and growth the property had. Setting sections required chainsaws & whipper snippers before you could put the arrows down in a lot of places. Floods also meant the club needed to make repairs to the crossing between the first & second car park. 

A massive thank you goes to the following people who were there across multiple weekends to make the event happen:

Rocky Egan, Phill Lewis, Phill Arnott, Simon Colombo, Simon Watts, David Grice, Noah Grice, Craig Genner, John Wilson, Matt Kerr, Peter Wines, Stan Mularcyzk, Zac Mularcyzk, Geoff Lewis, Gary McDonald. 

A very special mention to Reece & Greg Chalmers who did some very heavy lifting and deserve special mention for going above & beyond. The club appreciates all your hard work.

Thanks to our trainers who put in a fantastic effort: Caitlyn Cummins, Jono Chellas, Stan Mularczyk, Justin Stone and Rocky Egan. 

The training on the Friday was very well attended and the club was seeking a donation from each attendee to help raise funds for the TDN team to get across to Europe this year. If you were planning on contributing to the training, but didn’t have cash on hand you can still make your contribution here by using the reference “TDN Training GM”: https://www.oakleighmcc.com/club/make-a-payment/

We ended up setting about 26 sections and ran out of white & green arrows (thanks to STR for coming to our rescue), and the event consisted of 3 x 15 laps each day with a couple of sections re-used day 2. Glenmaggie section setting is generally set on the easier side in recognition of the fact that it is still early in the season, and the Easter weekend is a time of fun and relaxation. On reflection, looking at most of the grades we were fairly close to meeting those objectives based on the scores

Working Bee and Presentations

Thanks to the 30 members who turned up today to help at the working bee. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. The club grounds are looking fantastic, and we have new LED lights installed in the verandah.

We got through most of the ‘To Do’ list however there is still some long grass in parts if anyone who missed the working bee and wants to make up for it next time.

We have ordered some backpacks for our section setting gear to help make it all a but more organised, but they didn’t arrive in time so we will do it during the week when they arrive; until then there is a pile of section setting gear in the club rooms.

Congratulations to all the award winners in the summer series. Trophies are at the club grounds for you all to collect if you weren’t there today.
