That is totally awesome that you guys got that venue.

I remember looking up at that mountian from my grandparents place years ago thinking wow that would be awesome for trials.

Have fun.

Originally from Saugerties and Hunter is great.

Years ago a guy from NY was out here in california riding one of our events and said they had events there, I believe in the 80's.

We're from Connecticut. There is an event in Exeter RI that same day, but we thought your event may be a good change of pace and scenery. Sounds a little goofy with no checkers? How many riders do you guys get for an event? We both ride adavnced here in NETA, mid pack finishes, what are your advanced sections like?

They are really laid back crew but have a huge following. You ride in groups of three or so and check yourselves. Its actually pretty cool because you can ride with a mix of tallent and you end up learning a lot. The whole lack of checker thing works off of the honesty pollicy.

No problem Jim! My event up in Flint Michigan lands on that same day so I will be all tied up. Have a blast!

For those of you who don't know the area. It is right outside of Phonecia in the heart of the Catskill mountians and only about 30 mins or so from Kingston. It is also over the hill from Woodstock and there are tons of state camp grounds and great white water rafting in that area down the Esopus river. If you love the outdoors then make a long weekend of this trip. My grandparents used to live in Boiceville just down the road from Hunter mountain.

Jreilly,

It is only a SMALL fracture that means there is room for improvement....with all that time off work just think of all the riding you could do........besides that's what a helmet is for. :banana2::thumbup:

Take it easy, get healed up. broken bones suck. especially in the noodle. :huh:

Dude that stinks! I am bumming that I really have not made any trials out there this year. I need a good New Woodstock or Oneonta fix. Take it easy man and maybe leave the helmet on full time from now on... hahahaha.

JR, we had a great time at your event. You guys definately do things differently!!! The focus is clearly on FUN!!! Your boy is very talented, but looked bored with the sections? Are you guys doing the CATRA event Saturday or Sunday? You should consider bringing him to more NETA events.

Drhud,Thanks for the good reply.Yes I was a bit disapointed in the level of the sections,but with the short time everything had to be put together Bobby did what he could do.Normaly I would have got down to help but with my injury was not possible.Most years we ride all over the northeast including a few NETA events,Galway being one of the places.Pete does a good job up there and I had planned on riding both days to end my season but Dr says not a good idea.As for Cody he would like to be there but not sure of his work and family thing.His wife is about due to have baby in couple of weeks so he has a lot on his plate.And you are right he has always gotten bored with easier sections he likes the bigger and steeper stuff.Plus with doing the nationals in the expert line this summer it is hard to come up with stuff to keep his interest up.He started riding when he was 6 years old,so I think he might need a bit of a break.Which sometimes is not a bad thing.So you may see us sunday or just me as a spectater very tired of staying home.I get very jealus of watching people ride when I so want to be also.But I have next year to look forward to.See you in the woods.JR
