PROBATION AND APPROVAL PERIOD:
2.2.1. Upon registration being approved after the 3 month period, the proposed new Club
will do a 21 (twenty-one) month probation period.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE, THAT ALTHOUGH THE REGISTRATION OF THE NAME AND
PROPOSED PATCH HAS BEEN APPROVED AND REGISTERED, THE CLUB AS SUCH HAS
NOT YET BEEN APPROVED.
2.2.3. During the probation period, the members of the new club will only be allowed to
wear a small front patch on the left breast of their jackets – no rockers, depiction of
type of club or patch on the back will be allowed. The front patch is compulsory and
serves to identify the club as a new prospecting club in terms of the protocols.

(MAWC) meetings as guests in order to familiarize themselves with the current
situation within the local biking community in the Western Cape.

type of club they intend to be
2.2.6. On proof of having fulfilled all the necessary criteria and requirements in respect of the
type of club they wish to become, the task Team will make a determination at the end
of the full term period and allocate them the status for which they qualify.
2.2.7. Once approved, the club members will be allowed to progress to wearing a full back
patch with all their necessary club depictions.
2.2.8. Upon approval by the Task Team, the club will be introduced at the first meeting of the
local governing body (MAWC) following their qualifying date, as having fulfilled the
criteria and be allowed to operate as a fully fledged club.
126.96.36.199. Where it is not possible for the new club to be in attendance at the meeting as
envisaged in par.2.2.8, that club will be introduced in absentia.
188.8.131.52. Due to the Presidents Meet (G2G) in the Western Cape only being a quarterly
meeting, all new clubs will be introduced in absentia with only the particulars of
those clubs being made known at the meeting.
