The Story of South Gippsland BMX Club
It’s only been established for a couple of years but the South Gippsland BMX club is gaining momentum quickly. In the first year of the club the focus was on building back the track which was led by current President Nathan Evans.
Many hours of planning, working with Council and hard labour was put into the project.
“With great support from local companies BJ Earthworks, Allens Contracting, Evans Petroleum and Leongatha Garden Supplies the track was slowly brought back to a facility that we could start to enjoy again.“
Nathan Evans explains.
The word got out and memberships started to grow with many families coming from beyond Leongatha, including Mirboo North, Korumburra and even Phillip Island. As membership grew so did the need to spread the load and in his in own words,
“I quickly realised this was more than a one-man show so we needed to become more formalised and have a structure which didn’t just rely on me so after advice from South Gippsland Shire we reached out to GippSport.”
