BMX club seeking more members
THE Proserpine BMX Club welcomed new and existing riders young and old to their annual open day at the club’s track behind Les Stagg Oval on Sunday.
BMX coach and committee member Julie Dries said it was positive to see some new faces at the track despite the wet weather.
“The rain prevented us from getting any track time but it was a good opportunity for new riders to have a chat with current members and learn more about the sport of BMX,” she said.
“Those people who missed out on attending the open day, but would still like to join the club, are encouraged to attend one of our weekly events to signup.”
The club has both male and female members from the age of four to over 50’s, and full coaching support is available to all age groups.
Proserpine BMX Club members train every Monday night from 5.30pm, with racing taking place every Friday night from 6.30pm.
BMX is an exhilarating sport and is a great way for people to maintain a healthy lifestyle while making new friends in a competitive, sporting environment.
All current members are busy train- ing for the upcoming Burdekin BMX Club championship which will see many talented BMX riders from Cairns to Serena compete next Saturday, March 22.
The event will be the perfect warmup for riders going on to compete at the Australian Titles in Shepparton, Victo- ria at the end of April.
