Bookings for this Sunday 25/10/2020

Dear OMCC Member,

We are excited to announce that we will be reopening the club groups yet again..

Here is the quick outline of the clubs re-opining procedures:

  1. We are limited to a maximum of 10 members at the club grounds at any one time.
  2. Face masks MUST be worn at all times whilst not riding.
  3. No gatherings on the verandah area.
  4. 1 person in the kitchen at a time.
  5. No use of club rooms other than accessing the kitchen.
  6. Members need to be vigilant and maintain a 1.5 metre distance.
  7. Wash your hands.
  8. Avoid physical contact.
  9. There are certain areas of the club groups that have been taped off, due to recent works, taped off areas are not to be ridden.

We fully understand with the limit of 10 per session may not be enough to satisfy all members who want to ride. If we are over-subscribed we may look at other options.

Please note: members who simply turn up to the club grounds without booking in put our future opening at risk and the supervisors on the day have been instructed by the committee to close the gates once sessions start and turn any non-listed members away. We will also turn away general public and non-OMCC members.

Kind regards,

OMCC Committee

OAKLEIGH MCC NEWS – Reopening the club grounds

It’s been a while since the club has contacted its members and what’s been happening while the Covid lockdowns are happening.

The committee have been spending lots of time in constant talks on when we can open up the club again and the changes that need to be put in place.

Since last Sunday’s news from the state government, we are able to open up the club again but only on a limited numbers.

From this Sunday, only 10 riders and 2 or 3 supervisors can be at the club at any one time.

If we get quite a few riders registering, it may be broken into 2 groups during the day but not stating this Sunday 25 Oct.

There will once again be an online register which will appear on the Oakleigh MCC website late in the week.

NEW REQUIREMENTS:

It is also a requirement that face masks MUST be worn at all times whilst not riding.

No gatherings at the verandah area and only 1 person at a time in the canteen.

NO use of the club rooms are permitted.

You must live within 25km of the club.

You must have a valid and current AMA Membership

Details of how you can get an AMA Membership can be found HERE

There will be areas taped off which must not be ridden on as it’s the new grass and requires a few week of growth before any bikes can be ridden on.

As we approach the 1st year using AMA insurance, ensure your AMA membership hasn’t expired.

Committee meeting meetings news.

It has been agreed that OMCC will once again run 1 round of the VTS series next year (2021).

Unfortunately most of this year’s competitions were wiped out due to the Covid Virus and lockdown rules so hopefully things will get back to normal next year.

Have you got an MA licence?

As you know, to have a valid MA licence means you need to be in an Affiliated SCB club (MV).

Unfortunately Motorcycling Victoria have taken the initiative of creating 2 types of affiliations (Exclusive and Dual).

They are the ONLY state within Australia under Motorcycling Australia to go down this path.

As you are aware, OMCC uses both AMA and MV insurance to run their events.

The problem is that the MV affiliated paperwork is in DRAFT format (not final) and an area indicating “Some products and benefits may not be available to this affiliate”.

In other words, they are not sure what products they can and can’t offer so how can we sign up to something that’s they are not even sure about.

We have written to MV asking this to be finalised but haven’t had any reply yet.

In a final note, keep safe and well and hopefully see you at the club soon.

Oakleigh MCC Club Grounds Works

OAKLEIGH MCC CLUB GROUNDS WORKS

While most of us have been forced to either stay within the 5km radius of your house or a change in your working environment, John Wilson and Craig Genner have been spending many weeks at the club grounds moving rock, dirt and logs around for the 1st stage of the club ground refurbishment.

John was very generous in using his very own and new “tele handler” to do all the lift and pushing work required.

They even went to the extent of sewing new grass on many of the re-moulded mounds and new areas.

Most of the tyres have been covered over and a stock piles of rocks pushed aside to be used at a later stage.

The clubrooms were also given the same time and attention, looking much neater now.

And while that was happening, the car park has been completed raised by about 8 inches with new toppings added.

Stan was the key driver for this with many emails and phone calls to the tip owners over the past year to get this happening.

So next time you’re at the club enjoying the new areas, take time out to thanks John, Craig and Stan for a huge effort that they have done.

More news to come regarding opening up the club grounds again, keep an eye out for a post shortly.

Club update

Its been a while since we provided an update. We can imagine that most people are really missing riding right now, its been a tough time for everyone, particularly for us trials riders who look forward to each week, getting on the bike, making sections, testing our abilities and most importantly talking whole bunch of nonsense that tend to drive our families and friends mad with boredom.

Memes thanks to trials content creator – David Grice

Prior to the Stage 4 Restrictions, works around the club grounds have been taking place. A somewhat convenient time to get some work done around the place:

We hope that the rejuvenated sections will provide something to look forward to at the end of lock down. Thanks to John Wilson and Craig Genner for completing the works so far, more to come so keep an eye out for updates.

More memes from David Grice

As mentioned in our last post, Shamrock Civil have delivered crushed rock to form the new car park base, hopefully stopping the horrible muddy conditions we have been enduring for some time. We plan to add some asphalt profiling on top of this at a later stage. Cheers to Stan Mularczyk for communicating with Shamrock!

We hope, sooner rather than later, we can get back to what we love to do most. We will keep you all updated where we can, with more updates on renewed riding areas, reopening plans and any requirements that may be mandatory for us to open.

Times are tough out there and we hope you are all managing these challenging circumstances.

Take care and be safe,

OMCC.

Car Park Update

Car Park Update

As many of you would have experienced over the last year or so, our car park has been flooded again and again, this is due on going capping works by the neighboring tip. Unfortunately this flooding also dragged a lot of mud silt into our car park, which has been a pain for everyone who comes to the club.

Thanks to some great work by Stan Mularczyk,  Shamrock Civil Engineering who have been conducting the works, have agreed to clear out the mud and level the car park with crushed rock.

This will hopefully result in our car park remaining clean, keeping our bikes and cars cleaner, ready to go for when COVID restrictions end!

Thanks again to Stan, who has been in constant contact with Shamrock regarding the issues with the car park.

Stage 3 Restrictions – OMCC Club Grounds Closed.

Dear OMCC Member,

Stage 3 Restrictions are now back in force for Metropolitan Melbourne.

This sadly means that the OMCC club grounds will be closed for at least the next six weeks, unless restrictions end sooner.

We understand this is disappointing, as we all love riding our motorbikes. 

We will keep you updated with when and how we will be reopening.

Keep safe and take care,

OMCC Committee

Bookings for 5/07/2020

Dear OMCC Member,
This email has a bit of good news & some bad news.
The good news is that it was great to open the club up to some of our newer and pending members last weekend. It was a full house and a beautiful day for it. We got lots of really positive feedback from people and it was really encouraging.

The bad news is that the volume of new members put a strain on the administration of the club on the day and we will cease opening to potential members and focus just on serving our existing membership base for the foreseeable future.
The other thing is that Victoria has gone back into stage 3 COVID-19 restrictions in certain postcodes. The committee asks members from these postcodes not to attend the club grounds until their stay at home restrictions are lifted.

Suburbs under stay-at-home orders from 1st of July:

    3012: Brooklyn, Kingsville, Maidstone, Tottenham, West Footscray
    3021: Albanvale, Kealba, Kings Park, St Albans
    3032: Ascot Vale, Highpoint City, Maribyrnong, Travancore
    3038: Keilor Downs, Keilor Lodge, Taylors Lakes, Watergardens
    3042: Airport West, Keilor Park, Niddrie
    3046: Glenroy, Hadfield, Oak Park
    3047: Broadmeadows, Dallas, Jacana
    3055: Brunswick South, Brunswick West, Moonee Vale, Moreland West
    3060: Fawkner
    3064: Craigieburn, Donnybrook, Mickleham, Roxburgh Park and Kalkallo

1st July Restriction Updates:

Members from the ‘stay at home’ restrictions are not eligible to nominate to ride. 

Members still need to nominate their interest in riding before they can come to the club grounds. If we are over subscribed, there will be a random ballot.

Members who are successful will have their name on the OMCC website Saturday PM.

Here is the quick outline of the clubs opening procedures:

  1. We are limited to a maximum of 20 members at the club grounds at any one time.
  2. We need to avoid congregating in the veranda and around the table.
  3. 1 person in the kitchen at a time.
  4. No use of club rooms other than accessing the kitchen.
  5. Members need to be vigilant and maintain a 1.5 metre distance.
  6. Wash your hands.
  7. Avoid physical contact.

Please note: members who simply turn up to the club grounds without booking in, put our future opening at risk and the supervisors on the day have been instructed by the committee to close the gates once sessions start and turn any non-listed members away. We will also turn away general public and non-OMCC members.

How to nominate to ride on the 5th July:

Enter your details here: https://forms.gle/zMdQP6HHE582L18HA

Please submit your details by 11:59pm Friday 3rd July.

If you are successful, your name will be published on the OMCC website Saturday afternoon 4th July.

We will be in touch before the next weekend to either repeat the same process or announce any changes.

Kind regards,

OMCC Committee
