As usual close to Christmas the numbers slightly down but that didn’t affect the close racing etc. Great day. Please note that on normal Points Meetings the gates will open at 12noon and the check-in at 12-15pm. Riders are reminded again that Points are very close and finish on Sunday Dec 8th. Annual Trophy Presentation Night is Friday December 13th at 7-30pm. Sunday Dec 15th is last day of racing and is the “Aiden Smith” Championship with the Annual Water Fight straight after. NO BALLOONS, ONLY water guns etc. (The remains of the balloons end up in the ocean via the stormwater drains and then are eaten by the fish).
Excellent day of racing finishing off with round 2 of the very exciting Classic Series. Round 3 is December 1st. We will have a free BBQ this Sunday after racing and it will be Individual Top day. We will have an ‘unofficial’ meeting under the verandah of the clubrooms for all dads who have ideas on fixing the floodlight. So far, using a ‘sleeve’ is the most popular option. We need your input and help to get this organised.
Good roll up and great racing as usual. Congratulations to all riders from all clubs who won trophies at the Aussies on Saturday. This coming Sunday is round 2 of the Classic Bike Series at 4pm after our Points Meeting.
Another top day of racing finishing off with round 1 of the “Classic” series which is a special competition for the ‘original bikes from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

Sat November 30th will be a ‘Schnitty Night’ in the clubrooms. This is another 2022 fundraiser. It’s not too late for members to join the 2022 Tour Fundraising scheme.
