    Yeah, well sometimes things are too far gone to be fixed.... Ha ha ha! See you NEXT Sunday???
    With the extended forecast, there may be no snow left by next weekend.
    I have FRIDAY, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday off (and Tuesday, but I'm getting a colonoscopy, so it doesn't count for a ride day!). Hey, I just realized that this will be a 3 day week!!! I'm sooo happy!
    Just let me know if you want to ride.
    It's all about balance! And clutch and throttle control! :lobby

    If there are enough NETA events this coming season riders will need two work credits for year end awards so you may have plenty of riders looking to work another event.

    Right now there is not enough events to require 2 work events. But that could change. As a wise man once said; "Build it and they will come." I will build the event, they better show! Ha ha ha. :jack

    Right now we have 10 proposed events. We need 13 to require the 2 work event rule to kick in. Unless Vermont, GMP, change their mind and do a two day, I don't see it happening.

    SUUUNNNNDAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!
    Riding in Berwick tomorrow.
    Snow will be frozen solid, so it will be fun, but cold.
    I have 30 pairs of toe warmers for anyone who needs a pair.
    (I guess I better take my Gateraid bottles with ice out of the freezer and let them thaw out!)
    See you there. 11:AM.
    Side note: I found a porta pottie at Hussey Septic in South Berwick for only $85/month. That's the best price I found yet! Ask for Debbie and tell her Jareth sent you if you want the deal for your event. At least for the month of July we'll have one in Berwick, maybe longer.

    Of the 10 NETA events proposed so far, none are at the RI club. Looks like they had 3 last year. Are they just posting late, or are they really doing none this year ? I have emailed them about their customary early season trials school but did not get a reply.

    GMP has also not posted an event yet. Hope they do.

    I didn't notice that. I'm sure they will do at least one, maybe more. They may still be a bit burnt out from the World Round and not as ambitious as usual.
    I heard a rumor that the attendance in Vermont was so low at the last event that they wouldn't do one this year.
    I got an e-mail from Tom a month or so ago, and he said they are doing their own little mini-series as they have before, but not a NETA event.

    RITC is hosting a 2-day National event June 24th and 25th, so most of their focus is on that. I've heard they will probably do a couple NETA events in the fall, but no firm dates yet until the Banquet on Jan 28th. A Date for the Trials school will probably be set then too, but am told they will definitely have the school this spring.

    Its been about a month or two since I heard of this, I think I heard it here, somewhere. GMP is reorganizing to get something going in more central VT. Thus Bolton Valley ski Area, this summer a fun ride, and possible NETA event the following summer. 2 NETA members from GMP are organizing it with Bolton or at least trying to. This is from my memory back in time a few weeks. GMP has a website, maybe it was there.

    Good time today in Berwick. Sure wish someone else was brave enough to come out into the cold and snow.

    I can't believe that with the temps in the teens at night and 20's in day, there was STILL water in section 7!
