One more note, please do not put any more classes in so some will be competative. I am not even in the same zip code with those in my class now. I dont care, would be embarrasing to take a trophy home that had under50 and over 49 1/2. You know your slow when you are the only rider that shows up in your class and you still get 3rd.

We have had just a few on this discussion and look at the different goals we already have between us. Some like sprint, some like restart, some like timekeeper, some like grand prix. What would it take to bind the majority if not all together? I thought the love of riding dirt bikes, competing, good clean family fun was that binding agent. I have no good answers for how to make the experiance better, because regardless of the format(we have tried it all now) its the same outcome. If the children love it the parents and grandparents will follow. Look around where are the children? Why? I know some reasons. Ride in the front rows in a few of the races and just pull your helmet off and listen. Check workers, who do not have a thing to do with rider position or class selection getting reamed by someone because a kid had problems in front of them and slowed them a little, or getting reamed because of riders lack of trail reading skills. 200 riders 190 find their way just fine 10 riders have trouble and the trails are poorly marked.lol A lot of a riders experience is what they make it. I think a lot of the rider participation would return if we would get back a Muenster, Callisburg, Nacadoches, Draper and throw in a Gilmer once in a while. Those folks use to have several riders support TSCEC when we had more races in their neck of the woods. That has been a huge hit to the rider count no doubt. I know its redundant, but kids love competition, if you could get several competing in the sixteen and under classes more would want to come.

Point out any errors I made. You gonna climb in my truck and travel 20 hours with me to ride maybe 2.5? Or continue dirt biking's greatest sandbagging career? Huh?

Nope, the gloves are off. I am having a long talk with his Mother and Dad this evening. An interdiction is in order. Been trying to salvage him since he was messing his pants on the tank of his Dad's scooters but he has taken a turn to the dark side since he turned FIFTY. By the way, don't get downwind of him, he still has a "control" issue!
