Nelson Mini MX Champs
Can anyone help? In from Delwyn Leitch... Nelson Mini MX Champs are Sept 5th & 6th. Due to having surgery scheduled in the last 2 weeks leading up to the event, I am seriously going to need some help on the admin side of things, plus on the weekend at sign in etc. This event is all about the kids so if anyone can give me a hand, PLEASE get in touch 027 312 0575.

PLB Purchase
The club has the option to purchase Personal Locator Beacons at a good rate. With 3m accuracy, 10 year battery life and 5 minute position updates they sound the bees knees for making sure you can be found in an emergency when out riding, boating, hiking, hunting or just whatever spins your wheels out of doors!

AFM Forest Access Permits update:
There is now not a lot of fire danger in our local forest riding areas so have your permit tag and fire extinguisher on hand and go have some fun! Check your spark arrestor and keep headers clear of dry matter when trail riding.

Wairoa and Moutere North areas currently closed for logging operations so be careful out there.

Please stay out of posted and adjoining areas during other user events to ensure continued access to AFM Forests

The Club has an agreement with Action Forest Management for NMCC members to get forest riding access at half the cost of non-members - $60 for 12 months!
Includes Hira, Moutere North, and parts of the Wairoa forests.
Junior riders can now get a permit tag as well so the family can go out together.

The 'AFM Access Permits" tab of the site has all the details and Permit Packs can be picked up where you get your bike checked out.
All riders must have a bike check.
Call Secretary Jannine to get your Permit Tag
