New Member Orientation
All New members need to attend a New Member Orientation Session down at the Club Grounds, to go over freedoms and safety points.
- For any general questions, ask your BMC Sponsor or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Receive the BMC Club Emails: send an email to email@example.com
Next New Member Orientation Session:
- Why: Get an overview of the Club’s facilities, Safety Guidelines, Best Riding Practices, and get your Gate Key
- Where: At the BMC Grounds, Big Shop near the Big hills. Enter the grounds (big white gate), drive down the road a mile, the road veers left, then turn right through the gate and park at the Big Shop (the first shop on the right).
- What if I cannot attend? You’ll need to contact Darrell Devitt at 406-855-9988 to arrange for your Overview and Gate Card Pickup at the Grounds.
- Will There be multiple New Member Orientations? Yes, we’ll have a few different dates.
- Can I ride after the New Member Orientation? Yes, but you’ll need your BMC number on your front plate, and certainly a helmet for any rider. Note that riding conditions may not be the best, due to unpredictable Spring weather.
Overview of Member Safety and other Guidelines
• All Members MUST WEAR A HELMET AT ALL TIMES when on or riding a Motorcycle, 3-Wheeler, 4-Wheeler or other off road ATV
• Display your BMC number on bikes’ front plates, and if competing, side plates also
• Do a Preflight Inspection on your Bike before and after you ride
• Full safety gear is strongly recommended: boots, gloves, goggles, chest protector, riding shirt and pants, knee pads, neck brace
• ATVs (4-Wheelers, 3-Wheelers etc) are restricted to the lower main grounds and full width roads (such as behind the Great American hill).
• Ride slower on the roads and gravel and flat parking areas, no burn outs or heavy throttle which damages these areas
• Do not ride on soft mud track conditions – this causes ruts that are hard to repair. Wait till tracks dry.
• “Stay Right” on trails, roads and hills when possible and approach hill crests carefully for oncoming riders
• Ride with a cell phone and let others know if you plan on riding alone
• No Dogs, fireworks or firearms on Club Property
• Parking/staging/picnicking with trailers/bikes is open to several places, but use common sense
• Restrooms and other Portable potties are available year round
• Please use the trash cans and do not litter
• Camping is welcome with tents, RVs and other trailers (camping only, NOT winter/summer RV storage)
• Your Gate card will open the gates from 5 AM to 12 AM
• Non Member Guest passes can be obtained for Members in “Good Standing”
• Read and understand the contents of the BMC Hand Book (new editions available each March)
• Stay in touch and participate in Club changes and Additions, by attending the Wednesday Meetings
• Pay attention to “TRACK CLOSED” signs and other grounds or trails Warnings
• Equipment and facility operation is for designated Members only
• Fires are allowed, but not during events and, not during Fire Alerts
• Secure your riding, trailer and picnic gear – the BMC is not responsible for theft
There is a meeting on the first and 3rd Wednesday of each month (January through April).
