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!
