October MATT Newsline with QC 2016 Results

 

From the Presidents’ Desk:

 

The Mid-America Trials Team had a fantastic Quarry Cup event.  It takes a special group of people to be able to put on such a great trials weekend. There is no way to single out just one person to thank, everyone in the club and people from other clubs, worked hard to support this event in some way.  (Clearing and setting up sections, clearing and setting up the loop, determining routes, selecting sections, test riding, providing arrows, setting signs and cones, flyer and webpage, email reminders, newsletter, trophies; food ordering, setup, and servers; cleanup, mowing, cleaning facilities, servicing facilities; handing all the score shed sign-in, score cards, totaling and posting; checker packs and goodies, fabulous Checkers, cleanup, herding Cadets and Rookies both days, riding in the mud, ...

There was a great turnout with 85 riders signed up!  With 20 riders in just the Rookie and Cadet categories we have a bright future ahead.

Thanks to everyone!

Richard Bowden 

ps: Our October Hot Dog Trials will be pushed back one week to the October 22nd and 23rd due to the CRTC event forcing Nebraska's two day event back a week.

I would like to add a special thanks to MATT members who sought out Checker officials to fulfill their obligation to score a section.  Additionally I want to thank the competitors for their patience in sections and their willingness to help keep things rolling by helping the scorers clear long lines.  And “Ditto” to the Presidents’ message above.

I do not normally use this forum for my political view but it is an important time.  An undocumented but often quoted rule is when there is no rain at a MATT QC, the sitting Presidents’ term is automatically extended for the following year.  President Bowden was “railroaded” into the position last year but has done a great job as president. I believe we should enforce the aforementioned unwritten rule. Heck, Richard spent his career with the railroad, he’s used to it right?

Unique handmade awards by MATT’s own Russ Amos were given to top 3 overall class finishers.  Additionally a similar award is given to the person with the “Best Crash”.  This year’s recipient is long time MATT member Expert rider Steve Morgan. Section 2, loop 3: Steve is making his way thru the tight rocky challenge when he reaches a point of making a quick short climb combined with a right floating turn when it all went wrong! Steve took a dive down and to his right. His trusty GasGas continued running and tried to save the day by attempting to have his pilot remount. Instead it fell upon Steve pinning him to the ground! At this point one of the very young Carpenter boys advised Steve that he should have taken a dab!

 

It is always great to be around trials people and when the weather was as great as President Bowden commanded, it is even better! Hope you all had as much fun as I did!  

 

The following is a note from AVTA’s Greg Gann:

 

The Flint Hills 2-Day is this weekend at Sedan, KS.  10/8-9.  If there are any minor riders coming we need a release form signed by both parents & notarized.  The form is on our main page.  If both parents and minor will be at the event, we will provide the notary free of charge.  Could you let everyone know?  Sections are set & we have great weather forecast for the weekend!  Hope to see you there!

Greg

 

The Flint Hills 2-Day is a great event on excellent grounds.  See their website at http://www.avtatrials.com/ for more information. This is CRTC rounds 7 & 8. Kansas’ first national was held here May 31 and June 1, 2014 and it was a terrific event! BTW: They will be hosting their second national next year on April 8, 9. 

 

MWTA is running their Cornhusker Cup on October 15, 16.  MWTA has hosted a number of successful National events on these grounds thru the years.  While this is not a CRTC round, it does promise to be a fun, challenging event held on terrific trials grounds. See their website: http://www.mwta-trials.com/ for more information.

 

MATT’s annual Hot Dog trials will be held on October 23.  This is a one day event but come join us Saturday for a fun day of riding and comradre. Chili, hot dogs and more will be dispatched Saturday night for all in attendance.  A large campfire will be ablaze in Carver’s campsite to recount trials tall tales perhaps with an adult beverage. But BEWARE: the place is said to be haunted! Perhaps a ghost, zombie, witch or two or even super hero may seen in camp after dinner!  (Psssst: we will have Trick or Treaters so bring treats if you don’t want to be tricked!)

 

For CRTC followers: The NTTA club elected to move their event, CRTC rounds 9 & 10,  to November 5, 6. It will be held once again at the Red River Riding area near Muenster, TX. Both Nationals and World Rounds have been held here over the years. Some info is available on their website: http://ntxtrials.com/.

 

NOTE:  Both MWTA and NTTA require AMA membership. If you are not already a member they can sign you up at the event.

 

Fall is a very busy time of year for some great events!  Take advantage and come and ride!
