MA Rule Change Submissions closing 1 March

February 27, 2012

Motorcycling Australia (MA) would like to advise that rule change submissions must be received by 1 March 2012 to be considered for inclusion in the 2013 Manual of Motorcycle Sport (MoMS).
The MoMS contains the General Competition Rules, which govern the participation and conduct of Motorcycle Sport in Australia. Changes are sometimes made to these rules to make competition easier or fairer, to reflect changes in technology or equipment, or to make the meaning of the rules clearer.

MA acknowledges that those most involved with the sport are in an excellent position to provide feedback on the rules, and encourages those within the Motorcycle Sport community to provide feedback on the current rules.

Clubs, State Controlling Bodies and individuals are welcome to submit suggestions for amendments to existing rules, and suggestions for the addition of new rules, to help make the sport better for our competitors.

All submissions must be returned to MA on an official Rule Amendment or Inclusion Form by C.O.B on 1 March.

Submissions will be forwarded to the relevant Commission for consideration.
To find out more about the Rule Change process or to submit feedback, please visit MoMs Homepage.

That's right
Here is the chance for all those that are not happy with the guidelines we ride under to have their say through the proper channels and get something done rather than complain on forums ;D

News up here today from out west (of Qld) is that 2 more clubs have pulled the pin on MA and are going it alone with their riders as far as events/insurance et al is concerned.
The Stanthorpe club ( sth west of here) has gone this way some time back and is going great guns, holding good big events with plenty of riders of all ages and pocketing all the dough MA usually grabs.

The first club that will do that in SA will have my full  support .

it was done last week by Tea Tree Gully ( 60 new riders) this weekend at mud and tars, so did a few others.  Any club even today has the right to host up to 4 come and try days of there own per year ( free permit wise)

I'm so over MA and the state bodies and their cash grabs. The organisation started out to look after motorcyclists rights and to promote the sport but they've morphed into a money grabbing autocracy whose only reason for being seems to be to suck money off the little guy and his club....kind of like government and big business. When was the last time these pricks did something that assisted the little guy racer and the small club or promoter?

They're driving people away from the sport in droves but the pricks are so set on figuring the next way of making a quid out of us they're blinded to our needs. >:(

Generally termites , fungal diseases , root rot , salinity problems and in some cases old age make trees very unsafe.

Many circuits are surrounded by trees and particularly the pit/spectator areas which present rather significant public liabilty issues.

Tree checks would be carried out annualy by Tree Doctors or Arborists qualified in this type of assesment.

Motor Cycling Australia are our governing body and modern society requires modern solutions particulary in repect to insurance liabilities , so the gradual rises we see in levies are generally link to insurance repsonsabilites.

So lets not be to hard on the governing bodies ,

There's always more to it I guess, so Rob what is the safety aspect/risk they're inspecting for? Is it about trees that won't take someone crashing into them too well or the unexpected fall risk should they be in areas that are likely to have lots of spectators/participants nearby?

So lets take it out on the insurance companies that milk our hard earned dollar in every facet of our lives. Public risk liability and OH&S are killing small business, sports associations and just about any organisation that has human interaction involved. The leeches are continually finding new ways to scare government and administration bodies into adopting new legislation (and more expensive insurance coverage) to protect us from ourselves. Look behind everything we do in modern society and you'll find a smiling fat cat insurance company stuffing hundred dollar bills into its pockets by the millions.

Whew....That's got my two pet hates, insurance companies and MA off my chest in one fell swoop. I feel better now. ;D
