Racing & Practice this week
This week we are not racing due to the Rattler Nationals in Vernon BC. We will practice on Tuesday & Wednesday, weather permitting.
As always, stay tuned to the Facebook page this week - we will post ASAP each day for the go/no-go.
No coaching this week due to Nationals.
Grand Nationals Ferry Vouchers
The club applied for ferry vouchers for last weekend's Provincial Finals and although we did get vouchers for the riders travel on the ferry we did not get what we have received in the past.
Traditionally we received round trip vouchers for riders passage on the ferry for Provincial Finals and National Grands. This year due to demand we only received one way tickets for our riders.
We will be putting in a request for our club to receive vouchers for the National Grands in Chilliwack which are being held this October 5-6-7. There is no guarantee that we will be approved or whether we get what we will be applying for. We are working on the concept of anything we receive will offset the cost of the trip.
The application has to be in well in advance of the actual event so if you are going we require the name and age of RIDERS ONLY that will be riding in the event.
Please have this information in to Carol Sykes NO LATER than Sept 12th. Any requests received after the 12th can NOT be processed.
End of Year Awards Banquet - Sunday October 21st
The date for our end of year awards banquet has been set - mark your calendars! More details to follow... We would ask those of you that received a perpetual award last year please return it to the track ASAP.
"Garden for the Gate" Fundraiser
The Victoria BMX “Garden for the Gate” Fundraiser has started and runs through October 1, 2018. Victoria BMX receives 50% of every order!
If you want to order from Vesey’s Bulbs fall fundraising catalog, send us a message any time during those dates and drop off a cheque or cash payment to the motoshed.
Victoria BMX is not asking members to fundraise, but if you would like to circulate a catalog among friends, family and coworkers, we have several fundraising sets to give out. You are also welcome to share with friends.
Please note: orders are sent to Vesey’s at the end of the fundraising period and Vesey’s will ship after that date. This means you will receive your order in October, which is the right planting time for fall bulbs.
