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.
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.
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.
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:
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)
Yesterday OMCC held their AGM. Thank you to all who attended.
We are pleased to announce our new committee which is as follows:
President: Peter Wines
Vice President: Peter Spencer
Secretary: David Grice
Assistant Secretary: Simon Watts
Treasurer: Greg Chalmers
Assistant Treasurer: Reece Chalmers
Ground Supervisor: John Wilson
Assistant Ground Supervisor: Craig Genner
Communications officer and Social Secretary: Justin Stone
General committee: Les Pattinson, Zac Mularczyk, Grant Phillips and Steven Carter

There are some departures as a result of the new changes and we would like to extend a big thank you to Stan Mularczyk, Chris Grubb, Jason Shilton, Mike Brady & Reece Chalmers for their efforts over the last year.
The club are very lucky to have such a supportive group of volunteers who are working to make the club a better place.
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.
