Posted Monday, May 21, 2012 by Calgary BMX Racing.
Saturday, May 26th, from 10:00am to 2:00pm, Calgary BMX Racing is hosting an OPEN HOUSE & RECRUITMENT DRIVE. Club executives, coaches and volunteers will be on hand to answer all questions and process enrollment applications.
This is a great chance for those interested in BMX Racing to attend a public information session and get and in-depth introduction to the sport. Interested parents, new riders and club members are strongly encouraged to attend.
Come see our new track, learn about the sport, hear about what is in store for 2012 and see the action first hand.
- Open Track riding for all licensed and existing members.
- Members are encouraged to bring as many friends as possible for them try out the track and see for themselves how awesome BMX Racing is.
- Donations will be collected in the form of a special "Toonie" offer with 100% of the proceeds going to KidSport Calgary. Every donation of $2.00 (or more) gets you a hot dog & pop, and a TRIAL RIDE on the track (loaner bikes, helmets & gloves are available for non-members interested in joining – however, the dress code is in effect – see the "Rider Safety" page on our website for full requirements).
- Used Equipment Garage Sale – tables will be set-up for those interested in selling their used bikes, riding gear or accessories. Many great deals can be found at this, and it helps to make an affordable sport even easier on the pocketbook.
- Additional donations will be collected to go towards the purchase of a new wheel chair for a little girl whose family needs help raising an additional $500.00 above what their funding agency has offered.
