It is a good event, and it drew big numbers this year.

First you'll need to sign up as a member of a club. Diamond Valley, (dvmcc), is about $90 for a senior 12 month membership.

If it's just this event you're thinking of doing you can hire a transponder for the day, and you can get a day licence, (MA race licence).

If you were thinking of doing other events it's probably worth getting a 12 month transponder subscription and a 12 month MA licence....depending on how many races you want to do.

You can do it Ironman, (3 hours), or pony express with a partner, (4 hours).

Chuck some race numbers on the bike and away you go.

There is camping on the property and it's a great weekend.

Ok, Awesome and thank you for the info. I had already got a membership application for the DVMCC and was planning on joining in the new year.  I would like to do a few this year so maybe the 12 month transponder sub would be a good idea as well as an MA license.  I just wasn't sure wether there were any pre-requisites. 

 

Thanks again Bushyaz.

Mate do you have a link to a calendar ?

They haven't put it up yet. At their first general meeting they will roughly go over what they're planning for the year. Good chance to meet a few people involved in the club.
