  • All Juniors (U17,U15,U13,U11 & U9) MUST race in the Junior Only races starting at 4pm irrespective of club grading.
  • All riders must be graded before race day, there will be no grading made on raceday.

Hamilton Wheelers - Volunteering

 The 2018 Presentation night saw Warren Jones take out the winners $500 bonus for fulfilling his club Volunteer duty during the last twelve months. Every time a member acted as a volunteer their name went into the draw from some 331 members.

The night also marked the start of the next "Volunteer Roster" year, so it is important that all members be aware of the new roster start date and begin nominating a day that suits them to act as a volunteer. It is club policy that every member act in this role at least once every year. You can nominate your spot in the on-line calendar HERE

It is also club policy that if you go to nominate for an event the third time in the ensuing year and have not nominated a roster date you will not be allowed to race until you do.

For the coming year each time you volunteer you will receive a "Race Pass" that entitles you to tender that instead of money to enter any Hamilton Wheelers event (except our annual open events -Anzac 25 & Track Carnival). You also get 2 points in the 2019 Winter Aggregate pointscore if you volunteer at an event during the winter race season.

Finally, you will also get an entry into the Volunteer draw at the 2019 Presentation night. This year the prize will be your 2020 CA licence fee instead of the $500 voucher, so it is really worthwhile to do your bit for the club and be in the draw!
