We would like to establish regular rides/drives for the Sporting MCC, using the second Sundays of the month for starters, but it could be on any day or even weekdays for the retired ones among us. We are calling for volunteers to help organise them. The rides could be anything from a simple local ride for breakfast, morning coffee or lunch to full day rides to any venue or event you may be interested in or even shed visits to our members with something interesting to show. Not much is involved to set up a ride, simply forward me the details and I can post them on the web.
It would be nice to have a mix of rides of different lengths and speeds and surfaces to suit the different types of vehicles we have in the club, from older red plates to more modern red plates to even newer bikes or cars on full rego. I would suggest maybe starting each ride from our clubrooms but this may depend on individual circumstances.
Remember this is your club and part of the conditions of being a member is to help at a couple of events per year, so this is the perfect way to do so and it takes very little time and effort to be involved. If you would like to help or organise something all you need to do is send me the details at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them on this site, or if you want more details or help I can be contacted on 0455-505148.
I am still happy to organise the ones I do now like the Giro Geelong & the Torquay T T but I feel we need a few more helpers because I can’t do it all.
Thanks in advance Mal Loone
Great ride for the Sporting and Classic club members who attended, a bit windy but worth the effort to see the best of the Classic road race bikes and riders from most states of Australia compete for the Victorian Classic Road Race Championship Titles. We went up the freeway, and returned home via Broadford, Kilmore, Wallan, Riddells Creek, Gisborne and Bacchus Marsh. There were a few Sporting members competing with mixed results and a few machine problems but all in the fun of racing Classic Bikes and all their foibles. It would be nice to see a few more members attend our rides and help fly the Sporting Club flag at these sorts of events. Hope to see you on the next ride.
We will be having a ride to the above event on 8th April 2018 weather permitting.
Leaving the Bunnings car park North Geelong at 9.00am.
All welcome to come along, Red plate or not, bike or car. The plan is to head straight up the highway to Broadford then return home via Wallan, Romsey and Bacchus Marsh.
If you need any more info just contact me on 0455 505148. Regards Mal.
The next meeting at our clubrooms on 13-03-2018, being the first meeting of the month will start with a BBQ and chat from 6.30pm. All members and guests are welcome to come along. The general meeting will start around 8.00pm for those who cannot make it earlier.
SMCC member Andrew Barret has recently been to Finland for training and to compete in an ice speedway competition here are a few snaps. He’s the one in the green & gold beanie.
Thanks to all the members who volunteered their services to fill the necessary positions within the club to enable us to carry on functioning for our members benefit.
Remember this is a club of volunteers and needs the support of all of you members to operate smoothly. It was bit disappointing to see only about 25 members attend for the most important meeting of the year, so now it’s up to all members to support and help those elected into office to perform their roles as easily as possible.
