Mo­tocross club seeks man­power

Chinchilla News - - SPORT -

MO­TOCROSS: The Chin­chilla Mo­tocross Club held its an­nual break-up and awards night last Fri­day to recognise the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of mem­bers through­out 2018.

Pres­i­dent Jake Jenyns said this year had been a bit of a slow one for the club, which he at­trib­uted to the ris­ing cost of the sport.

“We try to keep our costs as low as pos­si­ble but the in­di­vid­ual in­sur­ance li­cens­ing goes up ev­ery year and gets more and more ex­pen­sive,” Jenyns said.

“Kids end up go­ing to play footy as it works out to be much cheaper to play long term.”

The mo­tocross club is home to 20 ju­niors and 15 se­nior rid­ers who at­tend reg­u­lar prac­tice ses­sions at the Bri­ga­low Re­cre­ation Grounds, on Healy's Crossing Rd.

Lo­gan Mil­don was awarded club cham­pion for the 10–12-year-olds, 64cc age cat­e­gory and the 85cc 12–15year-old club cham­pion was awarded to Lockie Maloney.

Jenyns said the club would hold its an­nual gen­eral meeting early in the new year, with more de­tails to be an­nounced soon with a num­ber of po­si­tions avail­able.

“We re­ally need more people to put up their hands for of­fi­cial po­si­tions and we’re also look­ing for a vice pres­i­dent and pres­i­dent for next year,” he said.

Mr Jenyns paid trib­ute to the club spon­sors West­ern Downs Civil, Pats Diesel Ser­vice and Shaun Robin­son Elec­tri­cal for their sup­port this year.
