GOOD FRIDAY RACE 2016
AMOUNT RAISED: $12,351.45
Our Good Friday Race Day Appeal has reached a record breaking $12,351 raised on our Good Friday race Day. What an extraordinary effort by everyone who attended and supported our day.
So here’s to the thankyous.
Thankyou to all the riders that entered/raced yesterday, it was extraordinary number of entrants. To the “pro” riders who turned up and raced on the day, what an awesome spectacle to watch at our track. To the “mx coaches” who also did a couple of hot laps – awesome as well. To all the riders, families, friends, others who came out and supported and spectated, this is what makes our day.
To our commentators on the day a huge thankyou to Lee Hogan, Joe Stevens and our lifetime member Graham “Smitty” Smith for the fantastic job they did throughout the day, it makes the races come to life so much more and also to Caitlyn Waka who commentated out there at the end of day, thankyou (could be your calling Caitlyn).
A big thankyou to Motorcycling Victoria’s President, Michael Burns who came out and supported and rode on the day as well with his son, thankyou for your support.
We even had our “Local Member of Parliament” come down as well as the Herald Sun who took a couple of shots.
This race day is also not just about the riding, but our auctions and raffles that we run thoughout the day. So words cannot express our thanks to the companies, business, individuals and families that donated goods, from big to small. Expensive to non expensive, it doesn’t matter because every single bit helps …I cannot name everybody here, but we will put a list up on our website with all donations. Fantastic. Thankyou to Yarrive Yonsky for running our auction items, some huge money was raised on those items.
And lastly, to our wonderful committee what an absolute awesome effort every single one of you put into the day. From race track prep throughout the week, thankyou boys, to the girls at sign in, Greg at the gate and the enormous and hugely big effort from all the girls that helped out at the canteen all day, they were run off their feet, and never stopped, but kept going to feed the hoards, our cookers and fryers have never worked so hard before, to the point we ran out of hot food every early on. Thankyou to our Phil Brumby for the tireless effort he put into getting many of our donations from companies, awesome. Huge thankyou to Marc Jones for taking photos of the day - check out his awesome shots on his facebbok page Marc Jones Photography.
If I’ve missed any one I apologise, there’s just so many thankyous. We hope everyone enjoyed the day, and we look forward to see every one of you again next year and even more for another successful Good Friday Race Day in 2017.
