Easter Wrap-Up

Saturday 16th April culminated in some perfect weather deserving of all the effort in planning that went into this one.  The day was an enormous success on four fronts:

1) It showcased RC Racing to healthy audience numbers across the day and promoted the hobby far and wide to an enthusiastic crowd of all demographics.  We were able to distribute information pamphlets and answer a steady stream of questions throughout the day to many interested community members.

2) It provided a great day of entertainment for those who actually participated and raced in such a unique event.  Feedback from all was that it was a great day and fun to have been involved in.

3) It contributed to the club's finances through a raffle prize so generously donated by Hearns Hobbies.  We were able to sell a good number of tickets on the day and were pleased to see our own Jeff Biggs take this prize home given his significant purchase of tickets!

4) It demonstrated our ability to plan and implement a great event to the City of Greater Bendigo, largely off the incredible planning of the Easter Sub-Committee led by Louise and Dwight Cheesman, Stephen Ballestrino and Jeff Biggs.  The effort here we predict will make us a marque entertainment promotion for future easter events within the council events planning group for years to come.

There have been countless hours that went into the planning of this event.  The development of council plans (safety plans, risk registers, site logistics and permits) as well as race planning, equipment requirements, promotional materials and other aspects deserves some individual recognition.  To Dwight and Louise (who endured a considerable amount of planning whilst looking after a covid-ravaged household), thank you for the enormous planning here.  To Stephen, who travelled great distances to collect and pack a trailer, co-ordinate the promotional video content (which looked fantastic on the big screen!), assist in planning and on-the-day set-up and tear-down, your efforts were amazing and greatly appreciated.  Likewise, Jeff, who also contributed a great deal of time and energy in preparing for the event.  To Copper Davis, thanks for undertaking the test & tagging of the electrical cables, and to Tim and Jamie, who just roll up their sleeves and do it all, time and time again.  

For those that helped on the day, thanks for making the event run smoothly.  John's efforts on handling enquiries and raffle tickets was great as to was Mathew Jenkins on MC'ing the day and Tim for his race direction.  It was very well done by all.

To those who just jumped in and competed in a very fluid race day format, thanks for being such good sports and ambassadors to the club.  

And finally, to Brett T and Hearns, for coming to the day and so graciously contributing to the event via sponsorship of the raffle.  We are very grateful and look forward to working with you closely moving forward.

Whilst we'll all take a week or so to unwind from this one, we're looking forward to seeing how the impact of this resonates through to our standard race day events.  So whilst normal programming resumes for us, we hope the time and effort put in by everyone here is fruitful and that your contributions to the club make you proud.

Let's do it all again next year!


2022 Championship Points Tables


This year, we are running an ongoing Championship Series with cumulative point allocations over the course of the year culminating in series presentations at our Christmas break up awards.

This series is only eligible to club members so the tables will only reflect those points awarded here to club members.  So if you've raced here but your name isn't on the list, becoming a member will rectify that ;-)

Championship rounds are conducted on the 3rd Sunday of each month only, not the 1st Sunday of the month meets.

Results after round 3 : Sunday March 20.  Worst 2 rounds are dropped for each racer over the course of the CHampionship Series.  This means that as of completion of Round 2, only the best 2 results are included in the tally.
