Guest Pass for Non-Members to Ride on the Club Grounds with You
Good standing members may complete the form below to apply for a one day riding pass for a Non member to ride on BMC club grounds. The form must be completed, notarized and approved by a BMC board Member to obtain a guest Wrist Band. Guests must be attended at all times by the sponsoring BMC member.
Event Entry Forms
There are different entry forms that are used, differing because of the class structures of the different types of events. The two forms that utilized are the Closed Course form and the Hill Climb form. Competitors are urged to complete the forms prior to appearing at an event. This will help speed up the sign up process and ensures that your information, address, sponsors, etc. are correct.
In addition, BMC issues IRS form 1099 – Misc. for each tax year. This means that if a Pro level competitor earns prize money for the entire season, for all events combined, of $600 or greater, they will receive a 1099. It is critical that BMC have your correct SSN or EIN and address. This information is acknowledged to be private information, and will be retained only by the BMC accountant and held as a private record, not available to club members nor the general public.
Spectator and Rider Releases
Spectator and Rider release are available at the events. BMC follows generally accepted safety and risk management practices for operation of its facility. With respect to competitive events, the short answer is if there is a safe, well marked and secure spectator area (“non-restricted” area), spectators will be allowed to enter the “non-restricted” area without signing a liability release. All areas on BMC grounds that are outside of any designated “non-restricted” zone are considered “restricted” areas. If there is no designated “non-restricted” area, all areas are considered “restricted”.
To enter a “restricted” area, an individual must sign a liability release form. For adults, the process is easy, simply provide proof of age and sign the release at the gate. For minors (under the age of 18), this becomes a bit more complicated. Below we address a couple of the most common scenarios and the forms required to work around and hassles.
For minor spectators (under the age of 18) that will attend a BMC event and want to enter the “restricted” area (typically the pit area), it is required that the parents and/or legal guardians of the minor execute a release of liability on behalf of the minor in advance of the event. When the minor presents this fully executed, signed and dated form, they will be allowed to enter the pit area. Without this form, minors (under the age of 18) that are not accompanied by their parent or legal guardian will not be allowed to enter the restricted (pit) area. For events that have a non-restricted (spectator only) area, unaccompanied minors will be allowed into such viewing areas without parental accompaniment or release forms. Download the Restricted Area Minor Release form.
If any minor (under the age of 18) will be attending a BMC event without their parents and/or legal guardians present, but will be attending with other adults, the parent and/or legal guardian can choose to give the attending adults the right to sign releases on their behalf. This is accomplished by the parents and/or legal guardians of the minor executing a Power of Attorney form, which is the legal document that allows for the non-parents to sign on behalf of the parents. This transfer of authority will work for both situations for minor spectators (simply watching the event but entering the “restricted” area in the company of the authorized adults) and minor participants (racing under the supervision of the authorized adults).
