Major Grant Success!
Soooooo much fun!
Good news everyone!
This morning I received a call from the Hon Peter Wellington’s office giving notice that the club has been successful in securing the following Queensland Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing grants:

Get Going Clubs ($7500)

This grant will fund training programmes in catering for people getting into (or back into) mountain biking. Courses will include training in nutrition, strength building, injury prevention and mountain bike handling. These are skills that can apply to all sorts of sporting activities and not just mountain biking. There will be also be a women’s only option supported by our Go GIRLs.

Get Playing Places and Spaces ($100,000)

Combined with the Sunshine Coast Council Community Grant this will fund the Parklands MTB Trials Project that will deliver a ‘green’ beginners loop, progressive flow trails and various other trail work activities.
