Thanks for all the replies!
Unfortunately "Local Competitions/Clubs" just do NOT exist. If they did I'd be there in a minute.
The camp thing is a thought though. I think I'll try to set-up some logs and obstacles at the local ORV place; it's pretty sad but there just isn't that many people around here that are very interested in riding difficult terrain. The local cross country series is mostly MX guys and only the top guys are clearing the obstacles the rest of us are taking the by-passes. I'd like to ride the obstacles with ease; right now I know I could ride some of them but am not confident enough in my abilities to do it in competition for fear of crashing, getting stuck and holding up an XC1 or XC2 rider..
