OMCC held its AGM on the 4th May 2023. Thanks to those who turned up and for those who couldn’t that submitted their forms. Changing membership fees can be a sensitive topic and so getting as broad as possible feedback from our members is appreciated. 

We are pleased to announce the new fee structure that will pay for the new insurance scheme has been resoundingly supported by members. Updates on the execution of the new insurance scheme will follow as soon as we have news. 

As a way to reduce the impact of the increase, it was decided to alter our membership renewal date to the 1st March each year (Was 1st Jan). 

As a result, for the 2023 year there is only 10 months left and so although the 12 month membership fees are $250, we will pro-rata the first year as follows:

5th May 2023 – 28th Feb 2024: $200 (metro) / $100 (non-metro)

1st March 2024 – 28th Feb 2025: $250 (metro) / $125 (non-metro)

Day membership will be $20 going forward.

Memberships are now open to be renewed. Please visit the club website here:

With the AGM we also voted in the new committee, and so I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new members and farewell some loyal servants of the club.

To Greg Chalmers (Treasurer) and Peter Wines (Former President) who have left the committee, thank you for your loyal service over such an extended period of time; words won’t do justice to the contributions you have made but trust that you won’t be forgotten and the club is in a better place for your efforts.

A word from David Grice, departing president:

Thanks to all who supported me during my time as club president, and the two years prior to that as Secretary. Over the last 3 years we have dealt with COVID as well as Insurance issues; it has been a rather intense time to be involved with the management of the club. My focus needs to be elsewhere for the immediate future so I am taking a step back to Vice President but am committed to staying involved and supporting the momentum we have built up as a club. There are some exciting opportunities ahead for the club that I would like to ensure get delivered. I’d like to extend a massive thanks to Peter Spencer who has been an invaluable support to me over the last year while dealing with the Insurance issues. I’m confident we will be in good hands. 

A word from Peter Spencer, incoming president:

I wish to put forward a huge thank you to David Grice, what a huge and tireless effort he has done over the last 3+ years we all should be grateful and thankful, keeping this club open through a once in a 100 year pandemic and all the insurance challengers are just a couple of the countless things that David has done for the club, good news is that David is intending to remain on the committee and has some exciting projects planned.  

Also the efforts from Greg Chalmers, Greg is someone who has volunteered his time and just been there ready to help over the years and always been supporting the club, Greg intends to be a very active member of the club in the future.  

A big thanks also goes to the departing committee members and to the club members who have volunteered to be committee members and giving up their valuable time. 

A special thanks goes to the long term committee members who are once again prepared to give up their time to make this club successful 

Moving forward, I think we all need to appreciate the special club and facilities that we have and look forward to the next year.

Hello Members,

We apologise for the extended delay that has occurred whilst we have been in negotiations with our various governing bodies.

2023 got off to a shaky start for a lot of motorcycling clubs in Australia, including OMCC. This presented a number of challenges that the committee has been working hard on behind the scenes to address.

The good news is that we have finally landed on a workable solution that will allow us to continue both competition and social riding at OMCC. Competition events will be run under Motorcycling Australia, and social riding days at the club ground will be covered by our ARMA affiliation.

Our AGM has been delayed by a few months, and is now scheduled for 7:00pm on Thursday 4th May, 2023. It will be held at the club grounds, 1 Simpson St Clayton South. All current members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please treat this as an official notice of the AGM.

In addition to the normal AGM business, the club is proposing a fee increase that needs to be voted on. This is primarily due to our re-affiliation with MA, which comes at a higher cost than the previous AMA affiliation.

To cover these increased insurance costs and ensure the club remains in a viable financial position, the proposed increases are:

  • Standard Adult/Family Membership:
    Increase from $160 to $250 (includes adult, spouse and U18 family members)
  • Non-Metro Melbourne Adult/Family Membership:
    Increase from $80 to $125 (includes adult, spouse and U18 family members for those that reside outside of Metro Melbourne)
  • Day Membership
    No increase, remains at $15

This fee increase provides a more robust insurance option through Motorcycling Australia which are less likely to disappear on us the way AMA did. As this will secure the clubs insurance position, we strongly encourage members to vote in favour of the fee structure change. The club has worked exceptionally hard to secure a solution that avoids the ‘per ride’ charges you often see with other disciplines like MX, which would see members charged significantly more. Also when compared to other sports, we feel this is a very economical option.

The AGM is an important event for OMCC. It gives its members a broad overview of the club’s current directions, financial health and confirms its purpose. It is also the time to revitalise the organisation through the official engagement of members into key elected positions.

We encourage as many members as possible to get down, and if you are able, get involved in the running of the club. It will be in-person only and there will be no on-line options. If you are unable to attend you can delegate your vote to a proxy.

In terms of sequence, we will have the AGM and then assuming the above fees are ratified by members we send our membership renewals. We also have a bit of pent up demand for new members that we have been holding at bay while all this has been going on. 

Big things are happening at OMCC, and this can’t be done without passionate and enthusiastic volunteers.

The OMCC Junior Enthusiasts Trials Squad met on Saturday for some more training and Fun activities. Weather the previous day flooded one of the sections so Rocky kindly set another on higher ground. We still had some nice water practice in the sections

Practice included tight turns for the sub juniors and some more serious stuff for the juniors who even got an intro to hopping techniques. Time was spent on how to ride the best line through the section with plenty of practice runs, then in reverse. The format this time was a 4 round mini trials where the parents took on the scoring. Improvements were very noticeable from the beginning of the year

We had 14 kids for the OMCC Junior Enthusiasts Trials Squad training on Saturday. Weather looked pretty bad first thing but the weather gods smiled and not a drop for the training session. There was lots of mud and wheel spinning in the tricky conditions!

Practice included tight turns, balance on planks and wheelie practice. Dan Stanthorpe won the longest Static balance. His tyres appeared to be glued in the mud. Mason Brady was a clear winner in the slow race and Fletcher Theile did a massive skid to take out the longest skid competition

 Zachary did a demo to show the kids his awesome skills and what they can aspire to.
