Hi Everyone, what a wonderful day for this years Kid’s Christmas Break-Up. Under blue sunny skies we had over 250 parents and kids attend throughout the day which was a great turnout for the big draw card, Santa and his Elves !!
Volunteers started arriving before 7am to ensure everything was up and running before excited kids and families arrived, sign-on table, canteen, BBQ and smoke oven, jumping castles, tracks, parking areas and amenities were ready for a big day, it was looking flasher than a rat with a gold tooth…
On arrival Mums and dads were busy signing on, unloading bikes and getting the kids into their riding gear while some just headed straight for the jumping castles. It wasn’t long before the tracks were busy with kids doing lap after lap and enjoying the day and just getting on their bikes and riding, how goods that !!
Car park just about full

The tracks were closed at 1pm and lunchtime was upon us, snags, hamburgers and smoked beef and chicken rolls were on the menu. The girls behind the food counter was kept busy as were the BBQ “Chefs” keeping up the supplies. To keep the kids going the slushy and popcorn machines opened up and were very popular in the warm afternoon sun.

Around 2:30pm the big man himself, Santa arrived express from the North Pole with his two Elves in the decorated Sleigh-ute, like bees to honey the sleigh was surrounded in seconds. Santa and his helpers were flat out keeping up supply of Christmas gifts to the kids and then it was back to the jumping castles, slushies and popcorn….

After the excitement of Santa’s visit it was the formal part of the day with the presentation of the Miles Honda “Most Improved Junior Rider” Perpetual Trophy for 2020 & 2021. (Not presented in 2020 due to Covid lockdowns). The recipient for 2020 being Matthew Belcher and 2021 going to Hayden Allen. Both being valued young club members over many years and deserving for their improved riding abilities along with time given to the club as volunteers at the McGregor Rd Track. On behalf of the KWR&DMCC congratulations to both Matthew and Hayden and looking forward to your ongoing support.
Perpetual Trophy presentation and a big surprise to both..
Well done Matthew
Well done Hayden
Would just like to say thanks to everyone who came along and made it a wonderful day and a Special Thank You to our volunteers for giving their time and effort, days like this wouldn’t happen without you. It was also a nice surprise to have the Member for Bass Jordan Crugnale MP drop by with her two sons to see for herself the difference the Motorsport Grants have made to the club helping maintain the facility.
Wishing everyone a Safe, Happy and above all a Merry Merry Christmas.
