Wow, okay. So starting a new thread wouldn't have been more prudent? Sounds like big brother stuff.

Anyway, Skull Creek was pretty wet, obviously. The creek is the highest I've ever seen and there's only one crossing that is still crossable in order to access the rest of the property, which is the one by the end of Skull Creek trail (or the beginning). But it made me cringe every time we rode across because it looks like it's ready to go at any time. Other than that, the trails have a lot of standing water in them and we got a whole bunch of fourwheelers and razors stuck in the mud bog trying to go back through for picture opportunities. Thanks for that Toby!

With the extremely limited amount of access, running a race this past weekend would have been not only logistically tough, but dangerous as well. The property's going to need some time to dry out.

TORCS race on that weekend. There are alternate (rain) dates, but it will probably be pushed further into the summer or to the second half of the season.

here are a few pics of SC from yesterday. hmmm, any takers on crossing the creek? this was part of the course.

btw, I didn't see the need to kill the thread either because the information needed was up front.

Wow, now that is a wash out.

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 04:51 PM

If the race was cancelled, why were there people out there on the course? Just trying to go mud bogging?

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 04:52 PM

Why is double booking against a TORCS event an issue, but double booking against an Otis event not an issue (doesnt Otis run at Brunes Mill the same weekend as Gator Bait)?

Maybe the makeup date will work better if its in the "dry" summer season (if the course needs to include the creek crossing). For spring (wet) races, maybe the NW section or SE section of the property deals with moisture better. Just brainstorming.

The pics of the levee made me think TRH should hold their first annual kayak and jetski hare scramble!

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 05:42 PM

I'll try to answer your questions in order.

1. Skull Creek was still open to it's members as it always is. The race being cancelled has no bearing on people being "on the course." Not sure the motive behind this question. If you're worried about us seeing the course ahead of time, fear not, we are the people who made it and will be working it while you're racing it!

2. There is a very limited number of weekends to work with. If the Events coordinator only scheduled free weekends, we'd have maybe 3 races this year. You can't please everybody, no matter how hard you try. I can't speak for the events coordinator, but from what I've heard, the rider turnout is greater at TORCS events. If it was me, I'd overlap the series that have smaller turnouts as well. As for Gatorbait, did you just argue with yourself? If you have a problem with that event date, you'll have to take it up with TSCEC or Lynn Bailey. I'm sure he'll take your complaints under advisement.

3. The northwest section holds water more than any other section in the property. The East and south section of the property (which is where this race was to be run) is historically the dryest.

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 06:19 PM

Howdy!

1. I was trying to have a laugh with the people who went out there (after it was cancelled due to rain and mud) and got stuck in the mud. Seems like an inevitable ending.

2. I thought recent events at skull had bigger turnouts than the ones at the SHNF. I didnt know this was due to TORCS riders though. I was just curious. I am bummed about the gator bait conflicting with the TXORR Brunes Mill event. I bet the TRH event at Brunes Mill draws a big crowd from TORCS too.

3. Oh, didnt know that. I will just shut up now.. LOL

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 06:42 PM

Well you would have had quite a laugh if you'd been out there. We managed to get every fourwheeler stuck (3 of them), a Razor and almost a dirt bike stuck as well! That mud bog would have been awesome for the race!

Well, I don't think there's much of a difference in rider attendance between the Forest and Skull Creek for the TRHFE series, and I don't think it has anything to do with TORCS. But you asked why it was okay to overlap an Xtreme race, but not a TORCS race. And the answer is that its not necessarily okay, but its the best option at the time. The powers that be in TRH need to schedule the races to maximize rider attendance.

has anyone even thought that maybe TRH didn't schedule Gator Bait on top of another event..?????

nough said.

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 07:17 PM

I thought the TSCEC dates were set well before the end of 2011,at a TSCEC planning meeting, but I'm too lazy/tired to research that right now.

That's what I was thinking too Greg, but I wasn't sure either.

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 08:47 PM

The date was set back around Nov '11 for Gatorbait.

Re: Warpath VS Rain thread - 02/20/12 09:29 PM

The Gator Bait Enduro was scheduled back in Sept 2011. Both TORCS and Otis were contacted by TRH leadership to deconflict the Gator Bait Enduro on the weekend of April 21-22. TORCS responded and worked with us. The problem remains the same...too many events and not enough weekends. Heck of a problem to have! With that thought, TRH always does its best to work with other event series. We actually take all of that into consideration.

Remember this is supposed to be fun...even for those that coordinate and put on these fun events. See you at the first Family event and the Gator Bait Enduro. It's a awesome year to own a dirt bike in south Texas. Go out and ride.

I didnt mean to get anyones tighty whities in a knot! Thats cool that TRH had the date/event set first. I should have worded my post(s) better (as usual).

I would love to go mud bogging at Skull on a 4x4 quad or someone elses bike... but wont catch me out there on my new-used 300 until it dries out a little. The last mud event I did was at Cowboy Badlands and a couple miles of 10-20 inch deep mud ruined a lot of parts quickly. I burned through 2 toothbrushes cleaning the steed after that round of practice.

No new date at this time...so it's not this weekend.

We'll get a look at the property this weekend and see how much the water has dropped and go from there.
