Point Arena Event Cancelled
The Pomo Tribal Council has cancelled this event. Rob and I know many of
you made vacation plans around this weekend, and the worst part for us is having to
disappoint so many people. I wish we could at least give a reason for the decision, but we
are not even sure what that reason is. All we can say is that the Tribal attorney got
involved with the contract Agreement in late March, and the next thing we knew in April we
were notified that they did not want to proceed.
Due to this sorry turn of events, we are bringing back the 2 day Tea Cup Trial event in
Point Arena on this same weekend, August 24/25. We ran this in 2012 and those who attended
had an excellent time, so some of you may wish to keep your vacation plans for this fun
event; please call either Rob or me for more information. Also, check out the calendar
page on the NW site soon for this event.

March NW Region Coordinator Report
(From the March 2013 Vintage Views)
Everyone had a good time at the Cycle Gear NW Region awards dinner.
Fortunately for those attending, the bar had several TV sets so we could follow the
Niners/Packers game. Many great raffle prizes were donated by George Gerstenberg from
Cycle Gear. Jerry Visman was the largest winner of raffle prizes. Could it be because he
was holding reams of raffle tickets? The money from the raffle goes back into the region.
We are happy that George announced Cycle Gear would again be the
sponsor for the 2013 NW Regional series. We appreciate the support our region has gotten
from George and Cycle Gear over the years.
Not much else to report, other than the season is rapidly approaching. First up is the
Oasis GP and trial on Sat. Mar. 30. The GP is composed of VMX bike and age classes. VMX
points are also given. The trial follows the GP. It is a fun event and we hope to see many
of you there.
Since there are many new members in the NW region, I would like to explain the grading
system. The AHRMA system is unique from any other racing organization. Race finishes and
championships are definitely a consideration, but observation of riders by grading
committees ultimately determines whether a rider should be moved up to a more competitive
skill level or moved back to a class in which he/she would be more competitive.
Please see 11.3 in the AHRMA handbook for a concise explanation of the
grading system. Every region has a grading committee. I am familiar with the NW Grading
Committee, so I can speak only of it. There are 15 members of the NW Grading Committee. No
decision is made by any one member of the committee. Three or more members are involved in
If a rider believes he/she should be competing at a different ability level, they can
request to be observed at sign up at any region or national VMX. Two or more people will
observe that rider.
If a member has a request to be considered for a change in ability level, they must
contact a member of the NW Grading Committee. Do NOT make the request to Cindy Cowell, our
I am listing members of the NW Grading members. Since there are 15 members, you will
probably know several of them. Feel free to contact anyone on the committee, they will
make your issues known to the other members of the committee.
If anyone would like to be on the grading committee, please contact Kay
Mann, chairman, @775-721-5325 or email email@example.com
Looking forward to seeing you at the races.
PS Editor's Note: Yes, the Early Sportsman Stock class in the AHRMA NW
Region will continue for 2013. Bring out those ESS bikes!
