    a reasonable amount of times throughout the year

  • Non Competition/Rec classes on club days for both Junior & Senior riders
  • We have introduced a "Competition" only 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, free SMS for upcoming events 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 or you live over 100km from the club rooms.
