After too much procrastination, I have updated the results section of the website to include results from Fun In the Sun, along with the championship standings through round 2.
Our next event in this non-typical spring season will be at Hickory Hills in Lenoir City, TN on June 25-26. This is the weekend before Family Camp at TTC, so if you have trials friends coming to family camp from other areas, let them know about our event so they can come ride with us.
I know that Papa Joe is excited to be back on the schedule for 2022. Look for sign up information for this event in early June.
Next workdays for the National will be March 12-13. We will start placing perimeter ribbons, marking sections and marking some of the loop. We need 5-7 total volunteers to help with this effort. If you’re like me and don’t have a huge amount of experience setting up sections (especially at this level), this will be a great opportunity to learn from Ray about section design and setup. We will start at 9:30 each morning.

The first event of the 2022 STRA Championship Season is the Fun In the Sun trial hosted by the FTA on March 5-6 at the Croom Motorcycle area near Brooksville, FL. Registration is now open through March 3 at 7:00 pm. Go to the 2022 Schedule tab on the site and click on Rounds 1 & 2 to register. Registration is on-line only.
Our banquet to celebrate the 2021 Championship Season is soon approaching. The banquet will be held February 19th at the chirt pit in Ringgold, GA and the traditional fun trial the following day on February 20th. See flyer below for details.
Membership registration for 2022 is now open on the membership tab or at the link below. While you’re renewing or joining for the first time this would be a good time to check your AMA membership status.
Our first full work weekend for the TTC national will be this coming weekend (Jan 15-16). After the toy trial in December, we got a good start on identifying section locations, but will continue that effort this weekend and start clearing sections.
We have enough chainsaws so won’t need any more but bring loppers and/or battery powered branch trimmers if you have them.
Wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope everyone is able to spend time with family and friends over the next couple of weeks. If you’re able to get a little riding in too, all the better!
I have incorporated rule changes approved by the membership at the business meeting and posted to rules for 2022 to the Riding Rules section of the website.
After the toy trial at TTC we spent some time the following day to scout some section locations for the national. We’ve identified some good section areas that haven’t been used in a while (if ever). We will have a work weekend on January 15-16 (and 17 if that is a holiday for you) to start the work of clearing out sections. A couple of us will be bringing chainsaws and limb loppers. Come on out and pitch in!
The 2021 season championship results are in and have been added to the results page, or take a look at them at the link below.
Congratulations to the podium place finishers, as well as all of the competitors in 2021.

At least four sets of eyes have reviewed them so we believe everything is correct. However it is remotely conceivable there might be some discrepancies between what you think happened, what actually happened and what we recorded happening. This was not out of malice towards you, most likely a simple mistake, so please approach us with an appropriate attitude and we will do our best to uncover what actually happened.
