Viper round 1 Monza Park April 24th. Special members deal.



Rovers members wanting to do the the Viper round this weekend at Monza please read. I have some good news.

Monza is a tear off free track.

After talking with Peter Elliot from Viper we have come to an arrangement for Rovers members. Viper will waive the $20 one day membership fee & the club will also subside your entry so as long as you have a licence the day will only cost you $45. This is assuming that you dont want to race for series points etc. In that case you will need to join Viper & pay the full fee.

here are lots of classes from pre78 to pre 95, Modern open & 2 strokes any year. Also a Senior mini bike class which is pre 95. There will be a junior class which is free (apart from a licence if you need one) but it is a 3 lap recreational class only (split) & 3 rounds. Most Seniors will be in the modern open (3 rounds 5 laps) or 2 stroke class (3 rounds 3 laps) or both, I assume. If you have something from 1995 back you can race it too, no extra entry.

Pay & sign in on the day from 7:30 but you MUST have your entry prefilled & correct money. I will have entries out the clubrooms tomorrow night. Also there will not be heats so 1st come, 1st served. Once the modern\2 stroke classes are full, that's it. Be early.

I'm Shannon from Woody TV, a production company based in Sydney.

We're looking for motorcyclists (female or male) with customised license plates to participate as interviewees in an exciting shoot that will take place between the 15th - 20th of January 2016 in Melbourne.

The interviews will become part of two videos that will screen at the SBK Superbike World Championship at the Phillip Island Grand Prix in February 2016!

We're looking for road bike riders with personlised plates from the state of Victoria, however dirt or superbikes are more than fine. The crew would need to film the interviewees around their homes, local hangouts, and on the roads between the shoot dates noted above.

If you'd like be involved as an interviewee, or know someone who might be interested, please send through the following details to the following email:
. Your name, email, mobile, and suburb of residence in Victoria
. Describe or attach photos of your motorbike and personalised license plates
. Your availabilities between 15th - 20th January 2016
. Anything else about yourself that you'd like to add
Email to: shannon@woody.tv

Ballarat Rovers Motorcycle Club

Invites Members, Partners & friends of our great club to the 63rd reunion.

We still plan to have a hell of a bash for the 70th but we are going to have more in between for those who couldn't/can't make the big ones.

Hut 25 Ballarat Airport (Clubrooms) Sat 19th Sept 1 pm till late & Sun 20th 10am till late.

Drinks at club prices, finger food provided.

Come & catch up with old & young alike.

Camping available.

CANCELLED Pony X/Enduro at Avoca Sept 12 & 13. CANCELLED



Government officials at the last minute wanted traffic management plan, $10,000 surety & a 28 day lead up. Geelong tried in vain to get it up but no good.

So once again government bureaucracy has put another nail in our sport's coffin.

BUT for those who want to ride this is NOT an open practice day. It is mainly getting the old crew back together for a reunion & to renew/sign up new ones to Viper.

I know this clashes with a VCM date but it was the only weekend that suited. There maybe some VCM guys who aren't/can't attend that one who may want to come to this.

It is for Rover members or Viper & VCM members OR those wishing to sign up for Viper. In other words if you are not already a member of the above 3 clubs or wishing to sign up then you are MORE than welcome to come along but you won't be able to ride.

You are encouraged to bring your "Viper style bike" i.e. Pre 90 or if you no longer have one then a modern bike. Or both. NO TEAR OFFS please.

Same format as last 2 years. For those who want setup/camp the Sat. BBQ, fire beer & bull dust Sat night

Riding/Viper sign up day on Sun. Riding will be in the form of a practice day.

Click here for Viper/VCM reunion entry.

Will need EVERYONE to fill in, even if not riding, for catering etc. & send before the day to make sign in easier. You won't have to send money it will be pay on the day.

It will be a Seniors only event but if you have Junior riders ring me to see what we can do.

First club meeting for the year Thursday Feb 5th. Hut 25 Ballarat Airport.


Existing members reminded that membership is due by the 1st of March.

Price rises as of the 1st of March, Single goes from $60 to $80 & family from $80 to $100 so pay before March 1st to beat the price rise.

New members welcome. While it is no longer mandatory to come to a meeting to be welcomed in it strongly encouraged. We still do not accept new membership applications posted in (Renewals OK) but you can join at any Rovers event (Practice, club day, PonyX etc.) Only exception would be if you mailed in an entry for a Pony you could include your membership with that.

These will be classed as competition memberships which will give all the benefits of licencing, log book signing etc. but no club rego, no free hall hire, etc.

Perko.

Just a reminder to all Monza went "Tear-Off" free as of Jan 1.


Just a reminder to all Monza went "Tear-Off" free as of Jan 1.

The only leeway will be if you are there on a practice day you can use one to protect your lens but it cannot be discarded on the track or pits. It must be put in a bin back in the pits.

I ask MV to email all clubs in Vic to let them know way before Xmas but I don't know if it happened. I did put it on FB & our web site.

Presentation Night & Last general meeting for the year this Thursday night 4/12/14.



Big thanks to Maryanne, Billie, Molly, Paul & Declan O'Loughlin, Sue & Wayne Freeman for the great job you done at the clubrooms. Kayleigh Eastick for orgaising flowers, chocolates & trophies. To anyone else who helped out thanks for a great night.

Just a reminder this Thursday night the 4th is the last general meeting for the 2014 year. We will start with a sausage in bread, quick general meeting followed by a couple of social drinks then pull the plug for the year.

People wanting to join or renew can so at one of the many practice days planned over the Xmas break or for renewals you can post them in.

For those who won't make it I thank all the officials, volunteers & behind the scenes helper that make the club work. Looking forward to the year ahead. Most of the positions have not changed for 2015 but we have had a few more keen committee people come aboard which is great to see.

See ya there Thursday night.

Big changes to Rovers membership guidelines.



We have introduced a "Competition" membership that does not require attending a meeting to be welcome in. Whilst it still will be encouraged it will not be mandatory. This means new members can sign up at a practice day, club MX, Trials or Pony, compete for on the day trophies as well as series points, get a MA/MV licence through the club, free junior coaching/book signing, presentation night etc. I.e. anything in relation to competition & riding. What it wont let you do is vote a meetings (Although if you did come to a meeting you could be welcomed in & thus become a full member), get free hire of the clubrooms, club rego, life member eligibility etc. Prices will be as per normal.

You wont be able to just mail in an application you will need to sign up at an event as described above. The only exception would be if it was say with a PonyX entry.

Also there is no longer a $10 admin feee or the need for a Proposer & Seconder to make it easier still.

Memberships are rising though as of the 1st of March 2015. So if you are thinking of joining or renewing do it before March next year to avoid the price rise. We need to buy new equipment for Monza to make it even better. Currently $60 a Single & $80 a Family it will be going to $80 & $100 respectively.

There will be several practice days at Monza over the Xmas break where new members can sign up. One day memberships will now drop from $25 to $15 but value for money the competition membership is the way to go.

AGM (Thurs Nov 27) & Presentation Night (Sat Nov 29) Changes to club rules. MX series & practice calendar. PonyX, Trials & Girls MX.



The AGM & Presentation Nights are fast approaching.

The AGM is to give the members a wrap up of the club from the years perspective, vote on life members & rule changes and to elect all new officials (Mostly old ones). It is preceded by a quick general meeting which allows members one last say or to nominate for any position, before the AGM. Any financial member can vote at a general meeting but only Life members & members that have attended 10 or more general meetings can vote at the AGM.

Presentation Night is, as the name implies, the night we give out the club series awards, a whole bunch of club awards the likes of Best Clubman, Quiet Achiever, etc. & welcome any new Life Members in. It will be at the clubrooms & the night will be subsidesed by the club.

There are a lot of proposed changes this year (For next year) & most are around making joining the club or riding a Rover's event easier. I can't say what they are until the club has voted on them but I will say that they address a lot of the gripes that have come from people wanting to join but logistics/work etc. have made that difficult. Others that I can say are we will go back to doing trophies on the day for the MX series (Sponsored so no extra cost) as well as series ones. Cheaper one day memberships. Possibly supplying flag marshals but this would mean an increase in entry fees & probably pre entry so we know we have enough entries to pay for them but that will all be sorted early next year.

We hope to have our club day MX calendar out soon (Waiting on MV one) as well as a practice one too. Also hope to set PonyX dates as well as & "Come & Try" trials day (Haven't told Fitzy yet). Plans are already in motion for a "Girls only" coaching/ride day at Monza.

More on all of that when I have it.

Last clubby at Monza was a good one..



First thanks to all those who helped Sunday. A very BIG thank you goes out to Eric Devries for preping the track Sat. I had lined up both Jacko & Eric but unfortunately due to other commitments Jacko couldn't make it but Eric with his trusty bobcat done a great job. From all report the track was sweet/sick/rad & my favourite AAWWWSOME!

It was that good we had two 50's getting all the way around. They did practice & 3 rounds.

I'm sure the downpour Sat night kept lots away even though we got on here (FB) first thing Sun morn to assure riders the track would be good. I guess previous encounters with a muddy Monza may stick with some people. The ones who came enjoyed it, especially watching Emma & Joel Milesevic do their thing, & the ones who didn't, oh well, you missed out big time.

Have plans a foot to have a massive track prep/revamp early next year. Just have to co-ordinate everyone. Eric has already offered his services along with Brett Pring, Chrissy Aitken & others. Have to find out when Jacko & Nashy are available. Probably have to do it over a couple of weekends with the big boys doing their thing one weekend & the bobcat brigade doing the finish off. More on that when I know more.

PonyX (Sprints) Results



Click here for 9-11-14 PonyX results.

10/11/2014


PonyX (Sprints) Done & dusted (Pardon the pun)



First big thanks to all the volunteers that helped set up, scorers, sweep riders, anyone else that pitched in & Scotty in the canteen (I remembered Darren). Especially the O'Hagans, Mastersons, Deagans & Devries who did a huge effort leading up to the day.

Despite the harsh conditions (Heat) I think most enjoyed themselves. We started with 32 riders in total, a few ineperienced Juniors decided to pull out but I'm sure they have another go down the track. Others decided to take breaks during the day & we ended up with a 6 lap event. Some pulled out with mechanical failures but not many left. One of the clubman blew up his bike & he went home & got his brand new bike & came back. He must have been enjoying himself.

It wasn't realised that we had picked a long weekend (For Ballarat) until last week & was too late to change otherwise we think we would have had twice the entries. I didn't get to see all the track but what I did see looked a good combination of technical & fun. Just what you want.

Jake Deagan won the expert but didn't beat Brett O'Hagan by enough to win a side bet. Emma Milesivic won the Clubman & continues to embrace this form of our sport. The talk is, by those who know, she could go all the way if she decide to switch disciplines (Or better yet, both). Tom Devries won the Juniors with a time that was up there with some of the experts. Full results as soon as I get them.

So once again thanks to everyone who made the day possible. Lets hope we can sort out our permit woes with the council/s a have a big one next year.

Don't forget we have a twilight club day MX next Sunday & fingers crossed Jacko will be able to prep it for us before hand. We will be watering Sunday morning, sign in from 12, practice about 2. More info soon. Also the AGM is coming up & even if you are ineligible to vote (Must have been to 10 general meetings throughout the year) you can still come to the AGM & have your say & to the general meetings leading up to the AGM & propose changes etc. & vote at them. We encourage everyone to attend.

+++++++Latest update for PonyX+++++++



After careful consideration the committee has decided due to the extreme dry conditions at Monza park we will run a sprint format instead of pony express format.

Don't be concerned about not having done a sprint before it's very easy.

It will make it a better and safer day for the rider, less wear and tear on the motorbike.

There is no teams everyone gets a number and rides as an individual you start in numerical order and take off at 20 second intervals.

When you complete your lap and re-enter the pits after your lap your time will be taken and deducted from your start time giving you a track time.

You then have time a quick break as the other riders complete their lap - gives you a chance to top up your bike check your filter scratch that itch and then line up for the next run.

These times will be added together for all the runs we do on the day and the person who has the least amount of track time will be the winner.

All in all it's a better format for this weather just a bit of a headache for the timing people and would ask anyone than can help with simple addition skills give me a hand.

Regards Darren O'Hagan

Classes will be
Expert
Clubman
Novice
up to 100 cc junior
up to 250 cc junior

Pony Xpress news. (Not good)



A big thanks to the Goldern Plains Shire again! NOT!!!!!

Thanks to their ineptitude, again, not only wont our club day go ahead at Devils Kitchen but we have had to move our round of the VORC to Monza.

This poor excuse for a council said for months (Started in March, plenty of time) that we did not need a permit. This went on for months then all of a sudden, yes we do.
Goes like this;
OK, no worries, how much. $502, again, no worries so we pay the $502 thinking as long as it's all good for September & October.
About a month or two later;
"How's our permit for September & October going?"
"Not going to happen, sorry, we need 120 days lead in & you only paid for your permit in August" said the very intellegent shire representative.
"But we have been talking to you since March & we paid in July!"
"The 120 days starts from the day the permit is paid & we didn't process it till August"
"So what hope have we of running our two events this year?" he asked knowingly.
NONE.
We still are talking with 2 other property owner in a BETTER shire & hope to run a couple before the end of the year.

****Club day postponed********Club day postponed****



Track inspection this morning sees Monza unrideable. With no relief in sight the Club day (Sun 13th) is postponed. Next Sunday (20th) likely date but will confirm.

11/07/2014


***Pony Xpress news******Pony Xpress news***



Due to various factors the date for the next PonyX is now August 24th. The land we were going to use is unrideable at the moment & may not be available for the above date but we have another property & a PonyX committee member is contacting the Shire today & hopes are we will be right to use it.

More info when I have it.

The one for September 21 looks good, despite the shire saying for months we didn't need a permit but now say we do.

Unfortunately we knew this year would be hard dealing with councils as no one is experienced in this type of activity anymore so it's back to sqaure one. What we are doing though is getting set up for next year with continuous use permits so we wont have to do all this hoop jumpimg again.

5/07/2014


More great news. Next Pony has the go ahead from shire.



I wont divulge any details till I am 100% sure & have double checked with the landowner.

It is down for Aug 3rd. More details very soon.

A letter from a Junior competitor to gladden the heart!



Great news. Chad Bell, (#362 65cc) the little fella that was taken away by ambulance late in the day has been given the all clear. I would like to share with you a letter he wrote to the club & an email form his parents. Too often the youth of today are labelled as spoilt, ungrateful etc. then something like this comes along to help restore your faith in them. Please read.

Hello my name is Chad Bell.
I raced at Monza Park yesterday (22nd June) and had a crash in the 3rd race in the 65cc class and was taken to the hospital.
I wrote this letter to thank all the people that helped me out.
I am okay now and looking forward to going back to Monza Park another time.
Cheers From Chad.


Thanks Chad, hope all your aches & pains go away soon & your back "On it". Next club day we have, if he wants to come back, I have invited him as my guest.

This was from his parents.

Dear Neale

Please find attached a small note from our son Chad. Chad raced at Monza Park yesterday and due to a crash was taken to Hospital. Steve, myself and Chad wanted to say a big thank you to all involved at Monza Park for their time and effort helping Chad. Long story short he is well and all x-rays came back clear. Both Chad and his brother Jett loved Monza Park and are keen to return there again some time.

Once again on behalf of Steve and myself thank you.

Thanks
Leah and Steve Bell

I like good news, thanks Leah, Steve, Jett & of course Chad (After Reedy of course)

These are the type of Junior parents we love. Not only haven't they blamed others for what happened they've taken the time & effort to thank the club.

The great thing is that they seemed to have passed on their ideals & values to their kids. Well done.

Western Region at the Monza Park MX Complex Sunday 22nd was an absolute Perla!



How lucky were we. Today is icy winds, rain, just plain miserable. Sunday people described driving through torrential rain only to find Ballarat bathed in sunshine, well, almost.

The 3 weeks leading up to yesterday were so wet "Jacko" couldn't get on the track & said the only way would to do it would be a Bobcat on tracks. Put me onto a mate of his Andy Petekin. He sent out one of his gun operators who was able to fix the "Jackoooo" setup up near the finish & the bog hole which was the last corner & finish line. As luck would have it the weather broke Thursday & he was able to come back Friday & fix some other stuff. I was there Friday & Saturday & managed to fix a few areas in other places with our old tractor (I want a 4wd one please Mr Treasurer!) but cut it fine. Was done by about 4:30 Sat arvo. I was too scared to rip the track deep in case the weather turned nasty, so I gave it a light rip then rolled it back in. Then the wait to see what old mother nature was going to dish out. To tell the truth I wanted 3-5mm of rain but will settle for none over 20mm any day. Well, mother nature smiled on us for once. Yes it was bitterly cold at times but she knew that this would make the track hold up without the need to water. Clever old girl.

I went round on the quad after racing and yes she was beginning to cut up rough in a few places but overall she was still mint. Corners that usually were one or two lines had 5, 6, 7 good ruts, even the last corner had 4 different lines through it. Jumps held up really well, some landings were starting to show holes but nothing bad. Even the spot where a few riders went down (Couple got hurt & we hope they are OK, no report yet) wasn't bad just testing for some riders. That said I think there was only 6 went down there? It was great to see not many yellow flags had to come out & only 4 red crosses.

I think the best way to sum up is to say the Division 1 50cc did the whole track & their last "ride" I didn't even send out the quad to follow them. They had a ball. Well done Monza!

I don't like to note individual efforts as we are a club & it was a club effort but there are a few that without them we wouldn't have got it all done in time & thus it would not have been the great day it was. So, in no order; Scotty Foy, Ross Nimmo, Danny Sandford, Jason Francis. I did have other helpers late Sat arvo & I thank them as well as the on the day helpers, great work by all but without these guys the day would have been a different kettle of fish. Special mention HAS to go to Danny Sandford. This guy hasn't been a member since his boy gave up racing a few years back yet he comes to every working bee & every meeting to help out. I just wish we had a dozen more like him & life would be so much easier for the club.

So once again thanks to all that made it happen, out on the track, in the canteen, lap scoring etc. No one job is more important than another, they all go towards making the day and that they did. Thank you Ballarat Rovers.

A very proud Perko.

PS, great job on the mike Kenny Watts (Even if you're not a Rover)

***CLUB DAY THIS SUNDAY THE 8TH JUNE & PONY XPRESS FOR 15TH POSTPONED****



Due to most members wanting to go away for the long weekend the club day has been postponed. There won't be a practice either. Will use the weekend to prep the track for the Western Region on the 22nd. Also PonyX for the 15th of June postponed due to not getting council permit in time. The next one will be Aug 3rd in Glenlyon (Daylesford) & we have been told the permit for that one is almost complete. Unfortunately, as we said at the start of the year, this year is going to be a bit of hit & miss due to new rules & regs around permits. The aim was to squeeze in a few rounds this year but have all the properties & permits in place for next year. We still hope to run a forth this year. We have the properties but it's getting the council permits that is the stumbling block. Anyway sorry but we knew this year would test us.

1st PonyX done & dusted.



A huge thanks to Jake Deagan, Darren, Andrew & Brett O'Hagan and their merry band of helpers. From all reports the track/loop was exceptional. Big thanks also to Tammy & Scotty Foy for running the canteen. And thanks to all the other helpers that made this a great day. Sorry if I have missed anyone but a great team effort by all.

Stay tuned for the next one. We have picked up another property so there is a chance of a 5 round series now.

Pony Xpress update; Confusion between a "One Day Membership" & "On the day entries"



Some people are misinterpreting a "One Day Membership" thinking it's an "On the day entry" Not the case. One day memberships are for people wishing to ride one of our events but are not a Rover's member. In the case of this Pony if you need a "One Day Membership" you must indicate it on the entry form & include payment for it with your entry. More PonyX info. Jake 0437756536 or Darren 0419105057 after hours.

Pony news, Wetern region & Club dates



A slight set back with the PonyX/Enduro series. Because councils have not issued permits for these types of events in years, & the people who knew how to do it have moved on, they are making us jump through lots of hoops. They are saying absolute best case scenario to get one is 60 days but believe it will be more like 90. So the 1st one (March 30) has been postponed till April 27 (Anzac long weekend) It may have to be altered again depending on the council.

The other dates are yet to be confirmed but will be close to it.

More news soon

Western Region MX dates 2014

March 2 Warnambool (Shipwreck Coast MCC)

April 5 Barrabool (Geelong MCC)

May 25 Colac (Colac MCC)

June 22 Monza (Ballarat Rovers MCC)

August 17 Ararat (Ararat MCC)

Last round 2 days inc presentation

September 6 & 7 Horsham (Horsham MCC)

Club dates

At this stage we have decided to have our clubbies the 2nd Sunday of the Month starting in April. We did this so it makes it easier to remember & as a bonus does not clash with Allendale or Merideth which may encourage some of them to come along.

Unfortunately the 1st & 3rd rounds clash with the World trials at Maldon & Finke respectively but we still feel this is the way to go.

I will try & organise a practice calendar soon.

Rnd 1 April 12 Saturday twilight meet. Gates open from 12pm.

Rnd 2 May 11

Rnd 3 June 8

Rnd 4 July 13

Rnd 5 August 10

Last meeting for the year Dec 5th!



There is only one more general meeting for this year. I strongly recommend to everyone that we will need strong MX & Enduro committees next year if a successful year is to be had. Committee positions are not like official ones in that you are only called open to help organise/setup events as needed. Not full time, but without them we will struggle, especially the Enduros as there is as much behind the scenes organisation as there is setting up (And cleaning up) the tracks/courses. We want to run non comp classes this year but again this will be determined by the amount of man(Woman)power we have.

There has been overwhelming interest in the Enduros/PonyX but they wont happen if we don't have lots of helpers. It doesn't mean you have to help everytime & helpers get to ride too. As for the MX one we are still looking for ways to open Monza more.

So come along to the meeting put your hand up for one of the committees.

Last meeting for the year Dec 5th (Free BBQ tea), this will be the last chance to join the club/renew membeship before the Xmas break. If you think that you may want to ride Monza over the break you will have to join now or pay one day memberships (When available, not all session will be an open practices)

We are running it on the Monza property, we have an extra 20 acres to use This will most likely be the Senior loop & the Juniors will be down at the old speedway. This is so we can run them concurrently. Bearing in mind this is not a race or even a practice. It will be a shortened/easier version of what a race loop would be like. It is for people to TRY different disciplines of our sport. This is in preparation for a full season of Enduros next year As the name implies it is for everyone to come & have a go. As stated earlier, NOT a race or even a practice. Fitzy will get some trials bikes & some riders to give us a demo & trust me, bang for bucks nothing beats this. This will be a FREE day. Sign in & one day try licence all FREE but you will need to sign in for each discipline you want to try. Also if you are under 18 you will need a parent or LEGAL guardian (i.e. not your mates older brother etc.) to sign you in. All Juniors who complete the ride safe program at Monza (Morning or afternoon session 9am & 12pm) & join the club on the day (Their parents join for them) will get a FREE rec licence which enables them to do practice days & non comp/rec classes on club days without needing a race licence. Value $100. Plus anyone who joins the club will get the remainder of this year's membership & next year's too (Till March 2015) 16 months for the price of 12. Spread the news, more info soon. As much as questions are welcome some of the details like times etc. are yet to be finalised so if you could be patient I will put the info on as soon as I know.

It is NOT a race or a practice day! We will conduct a "Ride safe program" for Juniors (Involves riding & a short presentation & there will be 2 sessions) & all Junior who do the program & then join the club on the day will get a FREE rec licence worth $100.

Come & Try Extravaganza. MX, Enduro/PonyX & Trials Nov 17th


The Ballarat Rovers will be holding a "Come & try" day. MX, Enduro/PonyX & Trials (Seniors & Juniors) Nov 17th.

Ballarat Rovers have plans a foot to have a 3 way "Come & try"/Family day involving MotoX, Enduro/Pony Xpress & Trials on Nov 17th at Monza & Mt Bolton. Including free BBQ lunch & soft drinks.

The thing we have to work out is the Enduro/PonyX. We are hoping to run it on a property but worse case scenario we'll do a loop, or 2, at Monza but we hope to have an extra 20 acres to use. Bearing in mind this is not a race or even a practice. It is for people to TRY different disciplines of our sport. The hope will be for a separate Junior & Senior loops so we can run them concurrently. More info when I know more.

This is in preparation for a full season of Enduros next year

All tracks will be within an hour of each other meaning there is no reason you can't try all 3. Most likely two of them will be together anyway.

As the name implies it is for everyone to come & have a go. As stated earlier, NOT a race or even a practice.

Fitzy will get some trials bikes for people to have a go on & trust me, bang for bucks nothing beats this.

This will be a FREE day. Sign in & one day try licence all FREE but you will need to sign in for each discipline you want to try.

Also if you are under 18 you will need a parent or LEGAL guardian (i.e. not your mates older brother etc.) to sign you in.

All Juniors who complete the ride safe program at Monza (Morning or hopefully an afternoon session too) & join the club on the day (Their parents join for them) will get a FREE rec licence which enables them to do practice days & non comp/rec classes on club days without needing a race licence. Value $100.

Plus anyone who joins the club will get the remainder of this year's membership & next year's too (Till March 2015) 16 months for the price of 12.

Spread the news, more info soon.

As much as questions are welcome some of the details like times etc. are yet to be finalised so if you could be patient I will put the info on as soon as I know.

In a nutshell the date is the 17th of November, most likely start time will be gates open 8am for a 9am start, it will be FREE for all to try including free BBQ & soft drinks. It is NOT a race or a practice day! At this stage we will conduct a "Ride safe program" for Juniors (Involves riding & a short presentation & hopefully there will be 2 sessions) & all Junior who do the program & then join the club on the day will get a FREE rec licence worth $100. Where the Enduro is going to be has not been finalised but Monza will be our failsafe.

Club Day National Round 3 18th May Sat Twilight Meet sign in from 10am


We will be running non competition/recreational classes again on the main Monza track & our non comp Junior track has been increased in size & improved (Thanks Wayno & crew). This track is for beginners on 50cc or 65cc mx bikes OR non comp type bikes.
Sign in from 10am Flag marshals required. (Bring one or be one)

Must be a financial member of the Rovers or Ararat.
OR;
Renewals, sign ups & one day memberships on the day.
Costs;
Entry fee for Rovers & Ararat members $20 (Reciprocal rights)
PROOF OF MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED
If you are not a member of either of these clubs you will need a one day membership.
So;
On top of the entry fee if required;
One day membership (& other MA/MV affiliated clubs) $25
One day rec licence (Non comp) $25
OR
One day race licence $50
You may wish to join our club or renew your membership in which case;
Single membership $60 for the year (+ $10 nomination fee for new members)
Family membership $80 for the year (+ $10 nomination fee for new members)
So if you are not a member of Rovers or Ararat your entry will be $45 ($25 one day membership + $20 entry fee)
Then, if required, some form of licence. If you have a race licence (Or rec licence if riding non-comp) then no further costs, otherwise you will need a one day rec licence $25 for non comp or a one day race licence $50.
I am getting the impression a lot of people are going to use this for practice before the region. Depending on numbers people who have not raced before, or limited experiece may be restricted to non-comp classes. ALSO, again depending on numbers, we may make it Seniors A + B grade all powers & C grade all powers rather than lites & open. You must bare in mind we need to squeeze all this into an afternoon. We may have to combine Junior classes as well.

Non Sceduled practice at Monza now easier! NEW RULES; Closest we will EVER get to open key


OK, changes to practice. Many riders have asked for more practice times on various days. We got together and nutted out what we feel is the fairest & safest way to proceed. Monza will never have an open key policy but this is as close as it gets. This will not affect casual users or scheduled practice days. This system is for people that want the track opened more often at different times. Here's how it works. To hold a practice you will need a level 1 official & have a Level 2 first aider as well. (Click here for the L1 official TEST here for LICENCE APPLICATION) All official courses are free & this is an Open book test so you will need a copy of the RULES or click HERE for more info. Downloading the rules is a good way to do it as you can use "Advanced Search" to find the answers. You don't need a working with children check to hold a practice. Up to seven riders (On the track) you can also be the level 2 first aid. This person can't ride. 8-12 riders you need a separate official & level 2 first aid. 13-20 riders you need another official (Two) & one L2 first aid and in the unlikely event you have 21-25 three officials but still only one L2. These numbers are for riders on the track. No actual limit to amount of riders wanting to practice. Again these officials & first aider can't ride unless relieved by another. Even better you could get your wife, partner etc. to do it if they also had L2 first aid no rider would have to miss out. The L2 first aid does not need to be a club member. The club will be running courses for people to get L2 first aid & the club will pay for it (Members or family members only. Must be on membership details). We need numbers for the course. April 29 & May 1st 6-9pm at the clubrooms. So if you & seven other club members all have your level 1 officials licence & you're all L2 first aiders you can open the track (Certain times & limits apply) all it means that one would have to sit out while the other seven were on the track. As soon as one rider comes in then the other can go out. If there are Juniors practicing normal practice rules apply (ie no Juniors & Seniors on the track together etc.) but the parents of these Juniors can also oversee the Seniors as well (And vice versa), thus no riders would miss out. There are certain prerequisites to be met. First of all & most important is that you have to be a financial Rovers member. (Penalties apply to non members & to the Official who lets a non member ride.) You must be prepaid for practice ($75) & have at least a rec licence. There will be keys kept at Polso's shop (Raceline Motorcycles 6b Shepperd St (03) 5332 7230) & there will be a sign out sheet for the key & a register of those who have paid the levy. A $50 deposit MUST be paid to get a key & obviously when the key is returned so will your deposit. There will be a sign in book & indemity forms in the first aid hut & another register with all members in it. ALL riders, officials & first aiders must sign in & sign indemnities. If someone turns up to ride but cannot verify membership & levy then they can't ride. There will be no renewing memberships, sign ups etc. so no taking of money required. The key will open the main gate & first aid hut only, there will be a key to the toilets too. There will be water in the tanks up on the hill if you wish to water the track. No need to run the pump, gravity fed. You need to give enough warning so a text will be sent out to notify that the track will be open (Only to those who meet the requirements & want it) or ring Polso to see if someone already there. Be aware that this is his business number so keep it brief.
Main points


NO CHANGES TO SCHEDULED PRACTICE DAYS! Just hope to have more of them! So nothing changes to casual practice users.  

 You will need at least a level one official (Can get wife, partner etc. to do it as well,) prepaid practice levy & a rec licence or better.

You need at least one L2 first aider who does not have to be a member.

If you are the official/first aider you can't ride till relieved by another

BRMCC financial & life members only.

Track is closed on Tuesdays, Thursdays (As per normal rules) but also Mondays that follow a scheduled Sunday practice or event. Other days the track can be openned 9am till 6pm EST or 7pm Daylight saving time. Would prefer 10am or later but certainly not before 9am. (Special "One Offs" days maybe allowed by executive decision)

Limit to the track being open for ANY event is twice a week. (Special "One Offs" maybe allowed by executive decision) (We need to think of our neighbours)

Must sign for key & leave $50 deposit

Everyone must fill out sign in book & indemnities in the first aid hut

There will be teething problems and other issue to start with of course but all in all it's not hard & would expect everyone is up to speed quickly. It will be reviewed at the end of the year, or sooner if need be, to see what changes are needed or if indeed it is to continue. The system is NOT up & running yet. So pay up your practice levy & make sure you have a licence so we hit the ground running. If you need to talk more about this you can ring me AH 0427334186 Perko.

Great news, we have agreed to reciprocal rights for club days with Ararat MCC


I had talks with John (Ararat's president) before Xmas to see if they would be interested in a reciprocal rights deal as to Club days. What this means is more oportunity for club members to ride & bigger fields. Also better for the clubs too with more patronage. Ararat has given me their dates & we will try not to clash with them so more chances to ride BUT where the dates do clash the deal is if say it has rained all week but race day is good Monza, as we all know, could still be unridable. If we call it early enough we can then contact Ararat to see if their track is OK. If it is our members will be able to go over there (Just over an hour from Monza) & ride for the day at the same cost as the Ararat members & visa versa. IT IS NOT an interclub series (At this point) it will be just another avenue to ride. As all members may not wish to go to Ararat the racing there, at this stage, will NOT be for series points. Ararat runs non competition/recreational classes as well. Dates & more info soon.

***WANTED, LAND FOR PONY XPRESS. WILL PAY***


Even though the rules haven't changed yet we wanted to be well prepared for next year when they do. So we want land, we will pay a set fee & possibly a levy per rider as well. Preferrably the land would be at least 60 acres or 15 hectares in size, partly wooded, undulating & within 80kms of Ballarat but will be interested to hear from anybody with any kind of offer. We usualy set up the weekend before the event, clean up on the day & pay to have restoration done to the land over the following week or so. This usually means bringing in a bobcat to smooth over the track. For more info ring me Perko 0427334186

***EMMA MILESEVIC WIN AUSSIE TITLE***


    A picture of Emma receiving her Vic No. 1 Plate

Little pocket rocket Emma Milesevic has dished it up to the competition big time taking out the Aussie Junior Girl's 125 title at Coolum Qld. Not content with recently claiming the Victorian No.1 she set her sites on the pinnacle of Australian MotoX in the Aussies. She didn't just win it she smashed the opposition winning all her races and a cheque for the final round holeshot as she cruised to the title.
Actually saying she cruised is to do her an injustice. I don't think I've seen anyone who is more dedicated or driven than Emma.
So a big congratulations to you Emma, can't wait till you go senior (Only 14) as I think the Australian Women's title is a gimmie but I believe the world title beckons. Not since Catherine Plum of NZ has a girl/woman shown so much talent.
