Marrinup Entries List

Please find the entries list for Marrinups race on Sunday attached.

Please also take note if you still owe $5 for a number plate as you will need to pay when you collect your plate.

This is a really easy thing to miss on the entries system (a simple click) and there are 31 people who have done it which is $155 club revenue that goes to WAMBA Smiling

Jenny King (Vic)is also racing in the Elite Women as she is here for the Junior Development Camp the following week end.

Massive thanks must also go to Martin Danger and Peter Byatt for organizing this race.

See you Sunday.

MTBA Integration meeting report

I was asked to represent PMBC by our president Martin Nugent at a meeting with MTBA in Canberra this week.

Because PMBC were the only club invited from WA, I felt I was representing all of the WA clubs at this meeting. That is why I have compiled this report and why I am posting it here.

I have also emailed this report to the other MTB clubs I have contact details for.

If you would like to contact me for further clarification please feel free:

Dirt Crits

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Are you interested in racing Dirt Crits again..................Excellent, so are we.

But we need your help to do it.

Craig Cooke is no longer able to stage these awesome events that were held at Garvey Park in Ascot. The Belmont shire are behind us, but we someone to organize and run these events if you want them to happen.

Traditionally, we have run them on a Tuesday evening twice a year in blocks of 3 or 4 weeks at a time.

So the bottom line is, if you would like these to happen, we need some enthusiastic PMBC club members to step forward and run them.
