Except for the occasional “April Flurry”, Calgary’s weather is getting warmer...which means that another BMX season is right around the corner!
In this regard, please remember to obtain your 2013 Alberta Bicycle Association License and Calgary BMX Racing Membership, to ensure you’re ready to hit the track when we drop the first gate.
Our Season Opener Race is scheduled for May 16th, with coaching beginning May 14th...weather and track conditions permitting, of course.
We want 2013 to be a HUGE breakout year for BMX Racing and we have big, BIG plans to put our sport on the radar of all Calgarians, but we really, REALLY need the help of our members to make this happen!
In support of BMX DAY in Alberta, an initiative presented by the Alberta Bicycle Association, we are planning the Largest Spring Awareness Campaign that our club has ever had. Many family fun activities are planned as we host many new visitors interested in learning about the sport of BMX Racing.
The event is scheduled for Sunday, May 26th, 2013...10:00am to 3:00pm. Please make yourself available to help us host this amazing event. More details will be made available closer to the day, but rest assured...you do not want to miss this!
Help will be needed in the following areas:
NOTE: The Calgary BMX Volunteer Commitment has been increased for 2013 to $200.00 per family (or 20 hours of volunteer service). This is a great opportunity to trim 5 hours off of that (early in the season too) by helping out at, what is sure to be, one of the most exciting events our club as ever seen!
All of these items, and the work needed to open the track later this month, will require big help from our members, please watch your email and our facebook page for work party details and track maintenance updates!

For all members of Calgary BMX Racing, 2012 was a great year. We built a complete new track, paved our corners, facilitated world-class coaching programs and hosted one of the most memorable Provincial Grands and Alberta Championship events ever. Thank you to all volunteers, officers and executives who "Gave All That They've Got" to help make it such an amazing year.
With the changing landscape of BMX racing throughout Alberta, 2013 will be another pivotal year for our club, as many critical directions will need to be established to maintain the forward momentum of Calgary BMX Racing. All officer positions, as well as some very key executive chairs, need to be designated. It is extremely important that we have all the right people in place for the continued growth and success of our sport. We strongly encourage participation of ALL Club Members in this year's AGM, as your input in the electoral process will help form the future of our organization.
Key club positions to be voted upon are as follows:
