Darwin Off Road Cyclists plan to be very busy this year.The aim for 2023 will be providing members with Races, Social Rides, Skill Courses, Novelty Events and maybe a taste of modified bike packing. This means that the DORC committee members and club volunteers will be very busy organising and presenting all of these activities for club members.
You do not need to be on the committee to assist with any of the club activities and any assistance that is given will be greatly appreciated. Many hands make light work. There is a significant amount of behind the scenes work that goes on to keep your club running and providing activities for you, the members. Besides providing activities for our members DORC is also responsible for the majority of mtb trail maintenance in the Darwin area. We maintain the trails at Charles Darwin, Lee Point and both Pine Forest areas. This is an ongoing task that requires frequent work so that you can safely ride the trails. DORC needs more trail fairies! Please consider helping out in this area.
There is an event calender that will be published shortly after the AGM on the 18th Feb 2023. Please come along to the AGM and be a part of the great Darwin mtb community. All committee positions will become vacant and a new committee will be appointed by those who attend the AGM. If you would like to take on a roll as a committee member contact Keogh Conboy on 0488 992 766 for a nomination form. If you are unable to attend the AGM in person then please contact Keogh for a proxy voting form. Remember that you must be a financial member to vote and be on the committee.
With such a busy year ahead there will be enough race events to make it worthwhile purchasing your AusCycling Off Road Race License. If you are only thinking about joining socially, then the lifestyle membership may be your preferred choice. You can always purchase a day license for race events. Seriously consider becoming a DORC and helping out the Darwin mtb community and assisting your club to provide activities for it’s members.
See you all at the AGM and our events throughout 2023.
