It's cooling down in Taupo - both with the temperature and also with our riders after Nationals in Tauranga! Read on for more details!
2014 BMX Nationals
Taupo BMX Club was well represented at the 2014 Nationals held at Tauranga BMX Club. Due to the weather over the Easter weekend, Nationals was cut short and the format was changed with the challenge classes all rolled into Sunday only.
Taupo rode well and our riders took out 17 top 8 positions which while battling crashes and the never ending rain, was an awesome haul!
Mighty 11's trailing took place on Saturday with Rhys Halligan trailing, but just missing out. There are video's of Rhys's racing up on our Facebook page.

Winter Club Nights
We have decided now that we have lighting at the track, we will keep on meeting throughout winter on Wednesday nights. While we realise this may not suit everyone, this was decided so that families can keep their weekends free. We may decide to reduce the number of motos in a night to allow you to get home earlier as it gets cooler.
We will take a break with May 28th being our last club night until 6th August. Points will start again in September.
Lance has now finished training for this season and we thank him very much for all the time he put in and the skills that he taught our riders leading up to Nationals.
Thanks also to Dion for taking the Sprocket training on Mondays as well. Again, much needed skills are passed onto the younger riders.
Prizegiving will be before the AGM on 8th of June. This year, we are taking nominations for trophies and have attached the form to this email. Please fill out ONE form per family only and return before 11th May 2014. Return by email or hand into the points hut on Wednesday night. Please remember that prize giving is for paid members of Taupo BMX Club.
The Taupo BMX Club AGM will be held straight after prize giving this year and will be on the 8th of June. Times will be advised for both events.
We encourage you to be more involved with the club and there are always positions that need to be filled. In particular this year, there will be some key positions that could be vacated if there is interest from new or existing committee members. If you would like more information of positions available or would like to ask questions, by all means feel free to ask us!
