Lakesider, Christmas Parade, Break and 2017



We have had an awesome month already with a fantastic Fireworks fundraiser and also our NQM race meet for 2016 all knocked out. A huge thanks to all those who volunteered their time for the fireworks caravan, last weekends working bee and of course our race meet.

The club relies on your support to keep the wheels turning!

Club Nights

Last club night on 14th December, this is also a Club Champs night, so we will do 3 rounds of club champs and then have BBQ after.

We will resume BMX in 2017 on the 25th January, with points night kicking off on 1st February.

We are also going to be enforcing BMXNZ rules more at a club level starting wit shirts tucked in and race plates on.
