Wow...to chime in or not? Tough call.... Yes, it can be a problem, but I don't think making stricter rules or not awarding points is the answer. I've been fortunate enough to travel coast to coast riding trials and have met some amazing groups of people with some fab clubs! I can't tell you how ofter I'm asked about how NMTA keeps ridership up? And how do we find enough scorers? I don't think you guys realize how good we actually have it? I just keep hearing about penalties & rules to get enough scorers that other clubs are "forced" to use, and none of it seems to be working. I say we stick to the NMTA way that I was introduced to a few years ago.... Veterans...educate the new guys that scoring is part of the sport. If you know you can roll out later on Sunday...sign up for Sunday. If your buddy came in from out of state to ride....let him score the Saturday's. Don't wait to be asked...go check in & see if all sections are full. If you want to add a new rule....then make the TM deliver beers to the checkers. Problem solved!
