The Motorcycling Western Australia Night of Champions is only a few short weeks away, a few short weeks before not only will the state champions of each discipline be announced but also two of the most highly prestigious awards within our sport.
The awards for Club of the Year and Most Improved Club are very difficult to win. Each club affiliated to MWA is measured against set criteria based on actual data, such as administration, reporting, media and so on.
Winning one of these awards can mean so much more than receiving a trophy at the MWA Night of Champions, it can open up a whole new path and direction for your club.
In 2015 the Cranbrook Motorcycle Club were highly deserving of being awarded the Most Improved Club and proactively used the prestigious honour as leverage for funding to help grow their club and its facilities for their members.
Looking back current president of Cranbrook Districts MCC Justin Shepherd said "2015 was a year of acknowledgement of our contribution as a sporting club, from the local community and our governing body winning two prestigious awards; Shire of Cranbrook Australia Day "Community Achievement" Award followed later in the year by Motorcycling WA Night of Champions "Most Improved Club" Award."
The timely achievement of these awards meant they were able to be included in the Feasibility Study to move motocross venues from Rockwell Flats to the more suitable natural terrain Sukey Hill site compiled by Steve Prezel for Trial Bike Management.
Justin agrees that the awards definitely contributed to the clubs successful government grant $200K application with Great Southern Development Commission (Formally Royalties for Regions), towards the construction of a multipurpose Scrutineer/First Aid Hut at Sukey Hill Regional Motorcycling Facility.
"This grant really kick started the committee and gave us a vision that we could offer something different at Sukey Hill and aim above grass roots motocross level. This grant also has been equalled with the work from my dedicated sponsors and track maintenance team. In eighteen months we have built a track that I'm proud to say that track inspector Steve Scragg signed off this month to host open events. I'm got my fingers crossed for 2019 WAMX series at Sukey Hill"
