AIDKA Code of Conduct & Social Media reminder

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL AIDKA LICENCE HOLDERS Sadly we are seeing an increase in complaints about intimidation, bullying and generally unacceptable behaviour via social media in OUR SPORT. This must stop as of now. AIDKA does have a Code of Conduct and Social Media Policy (which is in the 2022 AIDKA Rule Book). We would like to take this opportunity to ask people to familiarise themselves with the Code of Conduct and Social Media Policy. Penalties can be, and have been imposed (including a suspension for up to 3 months for the first offence) for any person deemed to be in breach. For those who have AIDKA members under 18 we encourage you have the conversation with them regarding what IS and IS NOT acceptable. Some discussion topics are listed below. Be nice. Mean behaviour is not OK. Make it clear that you expect your kids to treat others with respect, and to never post hurtful or embarrassing messages. And ask them to always tell you about any harassing or bullying messages that others post.Think twice before hitting “enter.” Remind them that what they post can be used against them. Once they hit enter their comments cannot be taken back. Follow the “WWGS?” (What Would Grandma Say?) rule. Teach kids not to share anything on social media that they wouldn’t want their teachers, parents, AIDKA Executive — and yes, grandma — to see.Use privacy settings. Privacy settings are important. Go through them together to make sure your kids understand each one. Also, explain that passwords are there to protect them against things like identity theft. They should never share them with anyone, even a boyfriend, girlfriend, or best friend.Don’t “friend” strangers. “If you don’t know them, don’t friend them.” This is a plain, simple — and safe — rule of thumb.Defriend “friends” who are harassing or bullying them. Encourage your kids to leave chats, groups or defriend people who make them feel uncomfortable or upset. Or if they feel they are being harassed or bullied.

The Strike Factory apply some minor grinding to ensure no material dislodges when these pistons are being used for racing. This is allowable, but must be done only by the Strike Factory. No additional grinding allowed. Regards. AIDKA Technical Committee. Posted:...

2022 SA Dirt Kart Title results

May 30, 2022

The 2022 SA Dirt Kart Titles hosted by Yorke Peninsula Dirt Kart Club has now been run and won. Congratulations to all the competitors who managed to walk away with a State Plate, Trophy and Sash. It’s a tough gig out there! Weather conditions weren’t the kindest to the club but through perserverance and determination, we managed to get through to the end. Some people were smiling, some were not! A credit to the track crew who ended up giving the drivers a pearler of a track. A huge pat on the back to all the Volunteers, Stewards, Officials, Pit Crew and Drivers who ‘hung in there’ and made the event as successful as it was. Many people are unaware of the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to produce such an event. So THANK YOU to you all.
