Rattler's Run Farms
Here is the pristine "Chunk O Palouse" we'll get nostalgic with again this year at Rattler's Run
August NW Region Coordinator Report
Sadly, we offer our condolences to Sylvia Bickers. Dave Bickers will be missed by his many friends. The motorcycle world is less bright with his passing. We admire the 55 year friendships, camaraderie and competition enjoyed by Dave, Jeff and the other competitors from that golden era of motocross.
We will also miss the smiling face and friendship of John Ford.
Anyone who raced against John will appreciate his racing ability and sportsmanship. Many
years ago, a group of Yanks traveled to the British Bike Bonanza. John and Pete Ford were
part of that contingency. The weather was quite British and the track became
very muddy. Mud lovers, John and Pete were the stars of the meet. They outshone all the
Yank riders and made a big impression on all the competitors. Their muddy smiles were a
joy to behold.
It will soon be August. The Cycle Gear NW Region events have been very successful. We are looking forward to the events that are on the fast approaching horizon.
As you receive this issue of VV, Big K Guest Ranch weekend (Aug. 9 &10) is just around the corner. Last year, the trial and VMX were excellent and we are sure Cliff and Venice Mee will produce another winner. Hope to see many of you there.
Rattlers Run, (September 13th & 14th), and Hollister Hills SVRA, (October 18th & 19th), are both Cycle Gear NW Region and NW Maico/CZ sponsored National weekends. Speed and Sport National trials will be run on Sat. at both of these events. Support classes for the Early Sportsman Stock (ESS) bikes are being offered at both events. It will be necessary to sign up as a post entry for the ESS classes, but pre entry prices will apply.
Famous Glen Helen Raceway hosts AHRMA VMX and PVMX Nationals on the weekend of Sept. 6 & 7. Well worth the drive to San Bernadino for this event.
Please pre-enter these nationals. The amount of trophies, ordered by the promoters, is derived from the pre-entry numbers. It also makes it much easier for the promoters and volunteers during the weekend.
Cycle Gear regional event, the Robert Bushey Memorial Weekend is Oct. 4 & 5. We cant think of a better place to spend an autumn weekend, riding trials and motocross racing on a grass track at the beautiful Bushey Ranch near Canby CA.
See you at the races.

The AHRMA NW Grading Committee
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 13 members of the NW Grading Committee. No
decision is made by any one member of the committee. Three or more members are involved in
