STONY PLAIN DENTAL COMMUNITY DAY
Parents needed! June 8 3:30-6

Bring A Buddy Day
June 13, 6:30pm - Have a friend who wants to try BMX? Bring them on June 13! Mayor William Choy will be joining us and has invited his buddies, Mayors Houston & Shaigec for a fun night of training and some fun races at the end. We'll have the BBQ going, tunes pumping and guarantee your friends will have a great time.
Aurora Lights Series
June 15, Edmonton - We’ve FINALLY worked out details on the Northern Tracks Aurora Series. YEGBMX is hosting round one on Friday June 15.
This IS a DBL points district race, but the series itself is a club/team competition that will be scaled in a way to even out the larger and smaller clubs.
Cost is $5, and you will be given a raffle ticket at each race you do. So the more races you do, the more likely you are to win a prize. ALL entry funds collected go back into prizing. Prizing WILL be rad.
The team that wins the series will get to keep the soon to be revealed Aurora trophy for the year, AND A MAJOR AWARD that is the clubs to keep.
That is all for now.
Provincial Series 1 & 2
June 23 & 24 - Registration for Edmonton's Provincial is open folks!
Click here for a direct link to Alberta BMX.
Provincial races are open to ALL BMX ATHLETES with an alberta BMX license. It's an incredible experience, and we encourage all of our athletes to try to fit in at least one race if they can.
What does Series 1 & 2 mean? Well, it means that Saturday's series of races are race 1 and Sundays are race 2.
Seriously how fun was that!!???
We were PACKED Saturday Night - so much so that the bar had to pull over two other servers to help out. Thank you!!!
It was great to see everyone outside of the track - and have a conversation or two NOT centred around the race for once ;)
Thank you to everyone who supported our 50/50 and Silent Auction, and a big, huge, gigantic THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! To Sue Mitschke for putting it all together for us. You rock.
FARMERS DAYS PARADE
It was like the fun of Pub Night for kids!!
But without the pub. And the night. And with kids. And crowds. And candy. LOTS and LOTS of Candy.... But we digress.
The parade was amazing - the kids had fun, the crowds were supportive, and the adults had many many conversations with parents and kids in the crowds interested in trying BMX. So thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to allow your kids to ride with us.
We want to see your pictures! If you took pics in or of our riders, please feel free to post them to our Facebook Page...
Tuesday was SO FUN!!
St Albert loved being able to host so many Motos, and have invited us back whenever we want. Great job team.
Stay tuned, our next field trip will be to Edmonton for a race. We'll let you know when we know more.
