Oz Nationals

Just thought I'd share a couple pics of what to expect for those coming to the 1st ever AMA/NATC national in Kansas, this May 31st/June 1st. For those that don't know, Kansas isn't completely flat! Ark Valley Trials Association has done a great job preparing for this event. These pics were taken before clearing limbs and leaves, but now most of the areas are ready for ribbon! Check out www.avtatrials.com for more info. There's some pretty cool club history tid-bits on the website too, including NATC hall of famer Bill Grapevine.

Peru is One of my favorite places to ride tied with Langley OK. It rained a lot during the 2 day at the central regionals last fall and it made my intermediate (similar to clubman sections) a little more challenging but i liked it better than if it hadn't rained as there was plenty of grip still left. AVTA is another great club friendly and accommodating should be a national to remember.

Sorry for the confusion..."Oz National" is what AVTA has dubbed this event, located in Sedan, KS. Kansas is home Dorothy and Toto from the Wizard of Oz. So I guess Oz is kind of a theme for us here.

Surprisingly there has only been one snake sighting there that I know of. And after this weekend there won't be any leaves to hide under when we burn (just big rocks).

As far as rain, my favorite trials there were during/after a big rain. It wouldn't be any different from any other place where it rains. The moss won't be an issue.

I only wish I could have gotten pics of when Smage was there playing!!! Should be lots of fun
