Been informed that BMXA Nationals TV coverage on SBS should get similar timeslot as MTB Nationals..........2 hour special.

Additional photoage may come from the Champbikx / Probikx rounds as they are National Series....

SBS shot quite a bit of footage at Nerang...

i heard today that the small fee is to do with the transponders.  They had already paid for the transponders and the company that you "hire" the transponders from won't give them a refund!  Not sure how much truth is in this, but if true that SUX!!!!

It appears those with their own transponders also have to pay the fee......

No big deal re the fee .... however December is way too far off, this event has been a good hit up for the nationals which is a big part of the reason so many attend.

The track appears to have escaped relatively unscathed and I for one expected the ACT Titles to be run on one of the next three weekends.

To get a refund you need to contact ACTBMX who run the event  Wink

I believe the fee is from Ezeventing and the transponder hire but not 100%.  ACTBMX has already lost some major $$$ with this and is only funded by 2 clubs and only run 1 open a year to gain funds unlike other states.

The track has suffered damage that had to be fixed, also due to Canberra still getting rain the track surrounds and the car park that was 2 to 3 feet under water is still not accessible or safe to put people and cars on. Rivers in Canberra have only really just started to come down to normal. Canberra will still need at least 3 to 4 weeks of sun and no rain for the car park to handle the traffic that the ACT's will put on it and with more rain coming this is not going to happen anytime soon.

So this also gives the ACT committee another issue as they will then start conflicting with other opens etc... that are happening close by. Not that easy to just postpone a week or two with mother nature playing her current weather game with us.

No matter what date they set it will not please all. I have heard that ACTBMX are working on something to assist those that stay on board. I recommend keeping an eye on the ACTBMXA web site for updates and if you have questions send an email and ask them rather then playing Chinese whispers on here.

NEWS on the 2012 ACT Titles
« Reply #56 on: March 15, 2012, 08:50:23 PM »

New date set for the 2012 ACT BMXA Championships is 8/9 Dec 2012.

Firstly I would like to thank all that entered our event, the calibre of riders and the number registered would have made this event one of the biggest BMX events in Australia. It is always a difficult decision to postpone events and I believe a right call on this occasion and those entered deserved better than what we could have delivered over period of the 2-4 March 2012.

For those that watched the news, travelled to Canberra or had travelled through Southern parts of NSW would have realised first hand that there was a lot of water flooding roads and towns, Canberra included.   The week leading into our Event broke weather records that had stood the test of time for over 60 years and were overshadowed by the rain which occurred during Feb/Mar 2012.  There was that much water laying around on saturated soil to the point where the track and surrounds just wouldn’t have coped with holding the Titles event, our planned car park was under more than 1metre of water as an example. This making it a sound decision to postpone our Titles a few days out on the advice of the weather mans predictions which were proved correct on this occasion.

I suppose the two major topics on most people’s mind is; will it be re-run? and if re-run what about my entry?  more so if I cannot make the new date. I will try and adequately explain these questions below.

Why the 8/9 Dec – There are many reasons for this decision but below are a few we considered.

 Rather than create a new event in an already busy Calendar, this date we had set aside for our Pre-Titles event. It appears to work with a build-up of large open events in the lead up to the 2013 Nationals. This commencing with the Vic Titles in November, ACT’s in December, Nerang Nationals and the UCI event in WA during January, SA Titles in February and the ACT’s again in March.  Some may realise the importance of 2013 as this is the year the Worlds will be conducted in NZ. The racing schedule on offer in these open events gives our Aussie riders a marvellous opportunity with some excellent racing to prepare them for that event. We may even be able to attract Santa on his Harley to this one also.

Where to from here - There are two options available to entrants, one is to hold your entry for the new date or to request a refund if the new date is unsuitable.

Holding your entry. If you chose this option you do not need to do anything. For those that chose this option we will offer discounts for your loyalty to our 2013 ACT BMX Titles Event.  The suggestion is $20 for your 1st Class and a $10 discount off the 2nd Class along with the existing family discounts with normal entry fees fixed at the 2012 rate.
Request a refund, This process is available through the on-line system if you had entered the event electronically or by contacting the ACT Registrar through actbmxa@gmail.com or mail PO Box 325 Kippax ACT 2615. Unfortunately refunds will incur a $15 Administration fee.

The period for electronic refund is from 15 Mar 12 until 5pm ESDST on 30 Mar 12, then this process will be closed until the event is reopened again through ezeventing .
I thank you for your patience and if you need more details on the above or if you have any questions relating to your own circumstances, can you please contact our Registrar on 0419487677.

Yours in BMX

Steve Thomas
