Hello Buggy Alumni community, thank you for your patience while we prepared our nominees and ballot for you all. The time has finally come for the new cohort of officers to be elected to the BAA Board. All members have already been contacted with this information, so if you have already voted, thank you! Otherwise, here’s all the info you need:
Now that we’ve all had a chance to recover a bit from this year’s intense races, we’re going to take a moment to look back and thank those who were generous enough to donate some of their time and energy to help organize & plan, lend their voices for events, and sit behind the scenes during the races to make sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. Thanks to their efforts, everyone was able to enjoy the races without spending the entire time in the shadows.
One quick note, if you were nominated to an officer position, please remember to respond before Sunday April 21st.
First and foremost –
Congratulations to all Teams!
The competitive spirit and amount of effort pushed forward this year was visible in the results and every team should be proud of what they accomplished this year. Below we list out all of the additional awards that were announced and handed out during the Saturday ceremonies as well as a certain article that missed their deadline so hard we’ll only have time to release it later this week.

If you believe Buggy is a sport that should continue, please consider being a part of the team that makes it happen. The BAA operates solely on the generosity of the alumni and the few who donate their time for a couple years to keep things running.

In lieu of a rolls report this week due to the wet weather, let’s continue the Raceday HYPE and introduce the people you’ll be primarily hearing from this Carnival. BUT! before we introduce all of our amazing broadcasters for this year, a quick plug that we are still in need of some volunteers to help us with a few of the necessary Raceday operations. In particular, we need people to help identify and transcribe finish line times. The only requirement is that you be at the finish-line tent during the finishes. If you can spare a few races during the mornings, we would be incredibly grateful and have some physical gifts in return for your service.
This year, if you’d like to try and see what being a commentator is like, you can have your chance during the Exhibition races! Swing by the BAA Tent at the top of the hill and we’ll get you a spot!
You’ve now heard a bit from our Head Reporter and Head of Communications and what it takes to fill those roles. It’s now time to hear from our head honcho, and how much work really goes into leading this band of fools! The BAA operates solely on the generosity of the alumni and the few who donate their time for a couple years to keep things running. If you are interested in any of these roles, would like to challenge someone’s position, or know someone who would fit the role, nominate by clicking the button below!
