    They have been at the sign-up table. They did not make it out of the box at the last event though (mostly because I did not dig them out). The smaller "No 5" and NMTA logo stickers were free just 'cause I thought the club members should be rewarded with free swag. This was the thinking when those stickers were first made available over 10 years ago now, and when I had the current batch printed up 3 years ago I kept that line of thinking. Free swag is always fun, especially to those who rarely podium at events or at the end of the year.


    Crisis mode certainly could describe the chaos that is this place anymore. A very, very kind way to describe it. :bluduh

    I have never seen them, and they were not in the box at the event I was trialsmaster at nor at the table.

    I'm glad that they are available. I'll take two. :D

    Sure, :nod but the point is:

    They should be available, advertised as available, and used as a fund raising. Maybe new ones every few years or so??

    We can put them in the Swag Button on our new web site (right next to the t-shirts and coffed mugs) :D

    Did I mention that a new web-site was on my 2013 wish list? :bash

    I'm willing to fixum up, with no promise of just when. I can do some printing/graphics too. Been a while since I've seen it, is the basic frame and posts and roof in tolerable shape? Is the box with the plexiglass something that can be removed and replaced? I'm thinking of working in the shop, rather than on site.

    Cool! Count me in for some material and labor. We just need the approval of the powers behind the curtain.

    Bob, could you print up something that would honor the history of the club and would be big enough to fill up the display? Maybe a trail map too? Maybe we need an artwork meeting over a few refreshments.
    This is assuming it would be OK to do something to that eyesore-I mean artifact!:lol3

    Can someone send a bat signal to the board? We have volunteers.

    Thanks to you too, NMTrailboss, for getting pics with feet on the pegs! And, if you look closely, your section was so easy that I must've fallen asleep while riding...or wait, was that right before I crashed and burned??? :puke1:rofl

    cheers

    The one thing that I am kinda worried about is the sign out front, yes it is a nice sign but it encourages hiking, mountain biking, canyon scrambling, and bird watching. And if a lot of those type of people start showing up we will probably get kicked out.
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    I just think all the signs in the area should stress that this is a trials motorcycle area
    <o:p></o:p>
    I would love to get permission to rebuild this sign if we can agree on the wording

    Bob, I can look at it closer next weekend if we ride and get you some better pics and some ideas on what it would take We have built a few outdoor type bulletin boards for construction projects. The biggest problem is waterproofing the doors. We have found it easier to just laminate everything and screw down a sheet of plastic over it all.

    If this is to be a permanent shrine then maybe a painted sign would be better. What would that kind of a deal cost us?
    We could still cover it with plastic to minimize vandalism. I'm just tossing ideas out here.

    SY Sign Assessment, Remedial Measure, Restoration and Implementation Plan. The SYSARMRIP. After we perform the FONZI and the NEPA report, I think then maybe introduce senate house bill SB-BR549, and proof that our building materials contain no lead since the trials heathens do eat motorcycles and signs, and of course with board approval..........Should be good to go.

    Count me in, generator, materials, screws, saws and I will have my PhD at hand (post hole digger).

    Offer free beer and the masses will come.

    Only problem with that grizzz is the area IS open to those activities, so I doubt they are going to allow redoing the sign.

    Quote from BLM website on San Ysidro Trials Area:

    "San Ysidro Trials Area

    The San Ysidro Trials Area is a unique slot canyon area that offers recreation for anyone with an appreciation of natural wonders. The entire recreation area lies at the southern tip of the Jemez Mountain range and is open for hiking, primitive camping, equestrian activities, and mechanical vehicles such as mountain bikes. The area is closed to off-road motorized vehicles except for the special use permitted to the New Mexico Trials Association who uses the area for competitive and practice events."

    Curtis is correct. The original signs just included NMTA with the note of contacting the ALB. office. The wording still has us first, with bike riders included. All BLM land is open usually so just making the complainers happy. I did post pictures of the old brochure on yahoo groups. (guess i need to do photo bucket etc to get current. Damn clouders.)

    Diane and Budd did this in what, 2000 or earlier? I say be out of the closet. Lets push for capitol improvements. The BLM will furnish supplies, they just need the free labor. I would love to see a pavilion there, bathrooms and leveled RV designated parking spots and an expanded parking area. Why not show case this for the BLM and display awesome stewardship. Ultimately, road repair in select areas. [​IMG]

    That would be good to put on a sign. Maybe right on the gate. I get tired of all the stink eye from guys when I walk up to the gate, unlock it and drive in. If we could get the BLM to furnish said sign, all the better.
