First club meeting for 2006 Club Rooms Thursday February 2nd

All members new and old welcome to attend, hear what events club has in store for 2006, if you haven’t been along before this is great time to meet other fellow members, generally at each meeting a raffle is run and a social evening is held after the meeting, watch current DVD of over sea’s events    

Off Road Club Champs
The first round for the 2006 Club Champs will once again be held at Broadford with a twilight meeting to be held on Saturday 18th of February. Remember no knobbies on rear, go to the wreckers and get yourself a second hand trials universal tyre or give Harry at mk1.com.au a call and crunch him on a new one (smaller bikes may use knobbies check with Frank Gogol or Bryan Noble prior to the event). All of the off road events are held on private property so you can race any bike, even the old CR500’s at the flat track. Further dates will be set once the Victorian and National calendars have been set.
If you haven’t tried flat track before, come along to Round 1, the track is always perfectly groomed and gets continual watering to keep the dust down and the racing tight and you’ll even get a feed afterwards.
If you want any further info come along to a club meeting or give me a call on 0409 325 950. See you at Broadford!
