Poker Ride – Friday13th March

Poker AA

“On a warm summers evening………”

Ok, its Autumn already. But that just means the conditions will be just right for our Poker Ride tonight. Come down to Thunder Point at 5.30pm for a 6pm kick-off. We have a 2.2km track already set. All you need to do is complete one lap for one card, and at the end of 5 laps the rider with the best poker hand wins a prize. Don’t worry if you only complete 1 or 2 laps. The dealer is very flexible !!
Fun is the theme for the night and there are no stopwatches involved. You can even stay for a BBQ afterwards !

Entry fee is $5 and you will need either your MTBA membership number or an MTBA day licence which is $20.
Hope to see you all there.

WCC Meeting to discuss future of WMTBC Thunder Point Access

The South Warrnambool Study will be on Warrnambool Council’s agenda on Monday 11th August. A full agenda and papers are on Councils website (very large file). Come along if you would like to support the Warrnambool Mountain Bike Club and the future of our access to Thunderpoint.

Meeting starts at 5:45pm, so be early to get a good seat.

“I suggest we disperse through the room rather than sit together,” suggests Gavin and “Wear your WMTBC Hoodie if you want to show your support.”

Here is the video that we presented to council at our initial meeting nine months ago:
