TMCC Camping & Families
Camping at TMCC is one of the best features of our club, after having a great day riding on the tracks, there is nothing better than sitting around the fire with your friends.
We do allow fires in the camping area in the designated fire pits, and only when there are no current fire bans. You can bring your own brazers. Wood can be collected from around the camp area, please do not go walking through the trails to collect as bikes are riding around.
Please manage your own rubbish when camping, you can drop it off at the industrial bins at the entry to TMCC.
While there are some bins located around the grounds, these are emptied infrequently by volunteers, and fill quickly, so we ask for you to drop off your own rubbish as you leave TMCC. Please feel free to empty the small wheelie bins into the industrial bins for us.
While camping at TMCC, it is a requirement that you keep your camp site clean and clear of any dangerous equipment.
We have quite a few people camping at the club over weekends and holidays, so please be respectful of other campers and their area.
Refer to the map opposite that shows the allowed camping areas, which are the mowed areas down from the Club House, at the entrance to the training ground area. Tracks are changed from time to time and the map maybe out dated but it will give you a basic idea. There is currently no maps for the new land beyond the road crossing.
There are toilets located around the camping area, and an amenities block. These are open and available to members at all times.
Please ensure when using the toilets and Amenities block, you keep it clean and respect other club members. If you make a mess, clean it up. A hose is availble for cleaning the floors if needed.
If the hot water runs out or the water tank is empty, please advise the committee via email at Info@tmcc.org.au or through the club Facebook page so we can get it fixed.
TMCC Family Information
If you are a family of riders and you have joined TMCC then you will love it!
We hold regular training sessions for children from beginners to advanced, so your Child can grow and develop in the club at a rate that suits you and your family.
Our Trainers are MQ qualified and are there to help and assist you and your child, but please remember they are volunteers and offering their time freely, so please be considerate when participating in Training days and events.
We have volunteers trained in first aid and able to get to remote parts of the TMCC grounds as required, however, they are not always on the club grounds, so please ensure your children are always supervised, know where they are at all times, and we encourage 2 way radios for the more independent kids, so they can contact you if they get in trouble.
In the case of an emergency, please contact “000” and call for an ambulance if required.
There is no set recovery of equipment (Bikes) please be mindful of weather conditions as you may have a long walk back to self recovery. We maybe able to assist if availble but this is not a guarantee. Try us on the club Facebook page if you get stuck.
If it rains heavy, the tracks will become very stick and the clay could chock your wheels.
Kids get excited, but please ensure your children follow the club rules at all times. Ensure they never ride alone, obey the speed restrictions around the club house and camping grounds, and always wear their safety gear.
The camping grounds are not a riding track, nor is the main road. Please ensure that your kids ride on the tracks provided and not through or around the camping grounds unless travelling to and from a track.
*Family membership does not include children over 18*
The more you put into the club, the more you get out of it.
Please feel free to bring a whipper snipper down and do some minor trimming around the club grounds if you think it is needed. Contact us on the Facebook page or email at Info@tmcc.org.au to let us know prior.
We have a volunteering system that will work towards your next membership as a discount, and as you spend more time with the club members you will grow to become part of a family of people with a common interest and a true passion for the sport.
Your kids will get to experience what its like to be part of and working within a group for a common goal, while having a tonne of fun.
