2.2.        The MOTORCYCLING GOVERNING BODY hosting the meeting will chair the SANBCA meeting whilst the meeting is held in their respective area of jurisdiction.

2.3.        All Presidents attending the SANBCA meeting are on equal standing and a permanent chairperson is therefore not appointed.

 

  1. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NEW MOTORCYCLE CLUB

3.1.        It is important for anyone wanting to start a new club/ club chapter to first understand all the protocols and rules and to follow the guidelines so as to avoid any confusion and/ or misconceptions.

3.2.        No new club in the South Africa will be allowed to start off as a MC. Any club that wishes to become a MC, will first have to operate as a RC or MCC and will have to fulfill all the criteria with regards to an MC within a period of 5 years.

3.3.        No new clubs or club chapters with International affiliations will be allowed to open in South Africa.

3.4.        It is highly recommended that a person/ persons who intend starting a new club, first consider riding or socializing with existing clubs in their area in order to familiarize themselves with the protocols and/ or behaviours of the local biking community.

3.5.        All clubs which were established after 1 November 2016 and not affiliated to any MOTORCYCLING GOVERNING BODY will be seen as a new club.

3.6.        Minimum period for any new club to qualify for acknowledgement as a full back patch club, is 9 months from the date on which the club registration is formally approved.

3.7.        The full process entails a minimum 12 months period consisting of:

3.7.1.    3 month whilst awaiting approval for registration

3.7.2.    9 months’ probation period from date of registration.

3.7.3.    During this period the club will attend all events hosted by the MOTORCYCLE GOVERNING BODY but will have no voting right and may only participate in discussions with permission

3.8.        No person/s subjected to a cooling off period and without the consent of the local motorcycling governing body will be allowed to wear a patch identifying them as being part of the biking community.

3.9.        A club may not consist of less than six independent riders each with their own bikes. One family group of six do not qualify as such independent riders.

 

  1. COOLING OFF PERIOD

4.1.        New clubs are often founded by persons who has left an existing club, whatever the reason might be. However, it is an accepted practice that any person/s leaving a club, has to wait for a given time before joining another club.

4.2.        This is also applicable to such persons starting a new club or a new chapter on behalf of an existing club.

4.3.        This time period is referred to as a “cooling off” period.

4.4.        The “cooling off” period has been determined and accepted by all SANBCA affiliated governing bodies to be a minimum of 6 months and is applicable in all situations. The following can be regarded as exceptions:

 

4.4.1.    Patch-Over

(a)          This is where a whole club or club chapter is closed down thus no longer to be in existence and absorbed into another club or different chapter of the same original club. In such a scenario the members of the club/ chapter being closed down are absorbed into the other club/chapter as full members. This normally entails a negotiated process between the relevant parties.

4.4.2.    Patch-up

(a)          This is where an existing club/ chapter changes its name and colours with all reference and ties to the original club being removed. The group membership remains the same, but starts to operate under a different name with a different patch.

(b)          In both these scenarios the original club/ chapter will cease to exist.

 

  1. BAD STANDING

5.1.        The term bad standing emanates from the old school biker traditions and describes a person who has committed a very serious transgression which adversely affects the biker community, e.g. stealing from a fellow biker, etc.

5.2.        Utmost caution should be exercised before a person is placed in bad standing status because this effectively means that the person is banished from the biking community.

5.3.        A proper investigation needs to be conducted by the respective Motorcycle Governing Bodies when a club places a person in bad standing.

5.4.        Care should be taken that this status is not merely allocated to a person as a result of internal club politics or petty infights between members.

5.5.        Allocation of a status of bad standing should therefore be a well informed decision based on valid facts and merits.

5.6.        It is also advisable to rather use the term “undesirable” than bad standing.

 

  1. PROCESS FOR STARTING A NEW CLUB

6.1.        The period involved to start up a new club is 9 months and can be divided into 2 phases:
