    This is only a FEELER, nothing is set. A discussion was held after our setup yesterday as to the possibility of having Ryan come down for a clinic. Dates were not discussed but I'm sure it wouldn't happen till after the first of the year.

    With that said, all I'm looking for is people that would be interested in making the trek to sunny Florida :jkam for a break from your wintery mix and to get some great instruction to build your riding skills. I'm not asking for hard commitments nor money, & I won't hold you to anything.

    Lastly, I'm not the organizer, one of our club officers brought it up. But I jumped on it & volunteered to see what interest there might be here, so I'll pass along any and all info as I get it.

    Who's maybe kinda sorta in?

    I'm a definite maybe!

    Good luck, Ryan's clinics are well worth attending.

    As I said, potential dates were not discussed. But personally I would hope so.

    8:21 for me. I'll say I'm interested but the date will determine if I can commit.

    Most people my age are booking vacations to Branson, Missouri at least I am doing something physical riding trials. Besides my wife likes going to the classes because she gets at least 17 hours of my captive ear in a car to brainwash and manipulate me. If I was smart I would delete that last statement encase she should see it.

    Will they be making a list of local riders at the event this weekend possibly?

    I dunno. I imagine it'll be talked about since the crowd will be bigger. You can shoot Jerald a line & ask, he's the one that brought it up last Sunday.

    Nope. His program begins with the very basics. Both clinics I've attended had riders that had never been on a trials bike. And he usually has a few available for rent if needed.

    Oh I’ve got one. I just suck at riding it

    In that case. I’d be in. Since I’m in Florida, I’m flexible on time.

    I’d only suggest doing it before April before Florida turns on the heat again.

    That’s what’s amazing about RY classes is that he can have beginners and experts in the same class and nobody feels left out or disappointed. Everybody goes home recharged and glad they went.

    Although no dates have been discussed yet, that's the general idea.

    Out of curiousity, has anyone here been to Trials Training Days and a RY event? Which is more valuable? 8ish hours to FL for me but I'm 6ish to TTC in TN. I can't do both events but I am shooting to make one or the other. My 6 year old daughter would likely make the trek with me. She would be on her Mecatecno. Not sure she would benefit from the class nor am I sure she is even old enough to participate. TTD is a great event but I like the idea of a smaller venue. Thanks for any thoughts.
