All racers and volunteers MUST be registered by 6:30
Our Track Operator cannot build our motos until our racers are registered, so late registrations means late racing start, and late racing start makes for antsy kids, grouchy parents and late late nights.
Volunteers - if you volunteer to be on the track, you need to be on the track as soon as you sign your name to the sheet or there is a rider out there. NO EXCEPTIONS
To register your racer on race day
Until 5:30 SHARP
From 5:30 to 6:30
Please Back your cars into their spots - we have a lot of little people
on bikes that are hard to see when backing out.
Please also remember that we are all parents of BMX'ers on the track
and filling volunteer positions oursevles :)
Welcome New Riders!
We have quite a few new faces on the track, which is awesome to see.
Parents and kids if you see someone standing at the track looking a little like a deer in headlights, please go over and introduce yourselves, show them some of our famous Stony Hospitality - and maybe help them out a bit, because we all know what those first few races were like!
New Families, welcome. The best way to catch yourselves up to speed on what the heck you've gotten yourselves into is to head over to the newsletter link on our website and take a look at the early May posts.
Provincial Series 1 & 2
YOU GUYS!!!!! What a weekend!
Parents please give your racers a big huge congratulations - every single one of our Stony Plain racers got out there on the track and gave it their all, and should be very proud of what they accomplished. It was incredible to watch our kids come together on and off the track - we are a true team, and it showed this past weekend.
Provincials 3&4 are in Red Deer July 21 & 22, watch the Alberta BMX website and facebook page to see when registration opens.
Sign up for your casino shift NOW so you aren't stuck with something you don't want in order to avoid having your Vollie Cheque cashed....
Remember: if you're racer is winning and you think they may be close to an upgrade, email firstname.lastname@example.org and cc: email@example.com so we can count down together!
We love to celebrate our athletes accomplishments, so the more aware we are the better - we can celebrate together! And we love to post their awesome mugs on Social Media when it happens too....
Like those awesome green and black jersies but don't have yours yet?
Then GET ON IT QUICK!!
The last Jersey order for the season is going in July 6. That gives you a little less than two weeks to get in on your opportunity to order a free jersey.
Apparel has also been extended to July 6 - that is for all hats, shirts, hoodies etc. There will not be another order this year, so this is your last chance to wear our logo loud and proud.
Water Bottles - for anyone who ordered a water bottle, we are still waiting on them. I'm sorry - as SOON as they're here I will get them to the track.

Our kids are making some amazing Random act of Kindness artwork. Colouring will continue to be ongoing for the month of July.
Now comes the most important part:
For our club to have any chance of winning, we NEED participation of all members! I can’t stress enough how important rider involvement is for this.
Our kids need to go out into the community to give the artwork to random people. With that, we have a few dates where can head out as a team to spread kindness.
July 1st - Canada Day!
Spruce Grove has a huge celebration. The more club families that can come for one hour, the better. How amazing would it be if we could all be there!
We will meet at the entrance to Jubilee park from 1:00pm-2:00pm. Please let Lei know ASAP if you can make this one firstname.lastname@example.org
July 7th - Stony Plain Farmers Market
We will meet at 12:00 pm at the Stony Plain community center 5008-51 Avenue
July 15th - Spruce Grove public market
We will meet at 1:00pm at Columbus Park 116 Main Street
If you absolutely can’t make any of these dates, please let Lei know, either by email or stop by the moto shed. There are a few smaller events in the area that might be a better option for some in the coming weeks. And we can add a date or two as well.
Also, if your child would like to give a picture to a random stranger in a store, park, walking down the street etc… that is great too! Just take a picture (with permission, of course) and post it to social media so we can track our impact! We understand that this option may be a better fit for our families that live a little further away(events local to your area are great too).
If that is the option you choose, please come to the moto shed to grab a couple of labelled pictures
When posting, please use these hashtags and mentions
@stonyplainbmx #RideStony @bdcctc #ctc_parkland
And finally, to sweeten this a bit, time spent participating will count towards your volunteer commitment! Spreading joy, AND ticking off some hours! Can it get any better?
Ps. Rock painting is coming too…
Any questions or comments can be directed to Lei, email@example.com
