    Seth: Meteor MC the club that hosts Sandy lane, has access to private land and can have single track there. They also use part of Wharton Forest (The forest I was talking about) to get to the private (good) sections. So Sandy Lane should still be a great enduro this year.

    Doug: The PB's are alot of fun, even without the single track.

    Best of luck Jack, they're trying to limit all our fun. Once my guns are gone, then they'll take my dirt bike. Life won't be worth living:cry

    On a happy note, Sites 4 ,5 and 10 have been reserved at H Cooper Black!
    Come hang out if you're bored:lol3

    Racing the Sandlapper National Enduro the day after SandBlast, but I'll be down to volunteer and cheer you guys on like last year.
    Entry list is filling up and the SB should be a ton of fun for you guys this year. MD class looks to be extremely competitive. Glad to see Mike back on the SE. Going to miss that Appy that Conger rode though.
    If anybody wants to run some similar terrain to SB pm me.
    Thanks for fighting for our rights to ride Jack!

    I doubt bill is going to miss the Ape, at least the points after it stopped running.

    Wish i could go do the enduro with everyone else

    looking forward to seeing you, Greg!

    Thanks for the good fight, Jack!

    Want to race, bad. :norton

    Do you have a row assignment yet? Known controls..... you guys have it easy down there. It's a Hare scamble divided into sections hahahaha

    Haven't seen it posted yet, they just posted for the Cherokee enduro and with registering 20 minutes after the opening I got row 99 :ear If it's wet I'll not even bother showing up as row 48 last year was ridiculous in wet weather.

    That wasn't Bill, Jack, that was Mark Ely. His seat was pinching the fuel line at the start of Jerden falls. I liked when we ran Jerden falls in that direction and made the hard right at the Sand pits. Great road!

    Sounds like the potential for a miserable time if the row assignment sucks.
    Heading to the Winter scramble in the morning, should be fun!

    Why don't you bring the 500 down and come run the Sandlapper with us. :deal

    As far as row assignment, Bobby is right...not out yet. We had one guy sign us all (5) up at the same time on the 1st day of registration. He requested the same row for us...row 25. :D

    Sounds like a few folks are running the Enduro on Sunday after SandBlast. Anybody doing the harescramble? Any scouting reports from folks who've done this race before?

    This sounds like more fun to me after a rally:lol3 My 500 isn't set up for Enduro yet and I probably won't have time with all the other stuff going on.

    Yep, but it's not a National like the Sandlapper. :evil

    $30 cheaper....Now that's funny :lol3:lol3...and you're traveling how far and paying how much to run the SandBlast? What's another $30? :deal

    Hey Crankshaft, You said the Sandlapper ain't nothing but a Hare Scramble divided into sections, so what's the difference in setting your 500 up for 1 HS or a bunch in the same day? :scratch

    I don't care if it's an international, I'm not interested in row 130, especially if it rains:lol3 Did this race on Sunday and had a blast....

    Sounds like a good format for a stage at Sand Blast. Wave start like a couple of years ago in Dakar.

    Yep, back rows are going to have a tough time at the Sandlapper if it's wet. :evil
