Season Results are in

Hello STRA folks,

If you are interested in seeing what the leadership of the STRA thinks the Season points look like, head over to the Results Page and have a look.  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.  The competition director can be contacted here:    Dawn Shirley 423-593-1134     CompetitionDirector@stratrials.com

We are currently working on the schedule.  I would encourage the promoters who spoke up at the annual meeting to contact Ray Peters at your convenience before December 18th to get locked into your desired dates.

At the annual meeting, we elected our 2021 officers and here’s how that turned out;

President: Mike Dalmaso

Vise President: Ray Peters

Media Director / Web Site: Francois Saint Laurent

Secretary / Treasurer: Kim Bronstein

Competition Director: Dawn Shirley

Youth Director: Randy Sharp

Membership Director: Juney Shober

Sporting Director: Eric Mattson — Subject to confirmation by the executive board

We are also transitioning the executive board to 2021 and I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome and thank Mike Dalmaso for stepping up to the plate.  He will be writing his own message soon so keep a watch out for that.

I think I’m out of useful things to share for now, keep practicing and have a Merry Christmas.  See everyone in the New Year.

ps you’ve read this far, dedication is important.  We are looking for a couple of volunteers to assist with the Year end awards.  Please contact Ray Peters for all the details.

At the link below the results for each day can be viewed.  I believe these have been error checked but if you see something that needs our attention, please send me an email and we will get to the bottom of it.  I am aware the sheets say spring splash in them.  I could fix it but I really don’t want to, please be assured these are the droids you’re looking for…

The Spring Splash was a hit in June.

I think the results speak for themselves.  Over 70 riders on Saturday for a great event.  Below are the results.  Overall the format worked well, we will continue to refine the scoring system at the table to minimize the delay between event completing and the trophy presentation.

I look forward to seeing everyone at Papa Joes Aug 29,30.  Online signup only again, stay tuned for online membership very soon.  If you are having issues with signup, contact one of the club officers BEFORE signup closes and we will do our best to resolve your issue.

Season Reopening — Changes to procedures

06/05/2020 — We will be kicking things back into action at the Trials Training Center for the ” Spring Splash – June 27,28.  There will be some temporary procedural changes for the event.

NO onsite sign up.  Please go to the Schedule on the STRA website and click on the green link to sign up. We need to know who is riding so section scoring clipboards can be prepared for the event.

When you arrive at the event, please come sign the releases (AMA and TTC) and receive your event number.  Please put this on your number plate.  The checker will ask you for this number to record your score, without it, no score.  There will be no punch cards.

We are exciting to see everyone again after such a long break, please be considerate of others regarding masks, social distance, etc.  If you aren’t feeling well please stay home.

AMA Federal Action Alert

AMA Action Alert

Push back against proposal for higher import fees on certain Motorcycles Tell your senators and representative your opinion today!
Take Action

Red Bar

Urge your federal lawmakers to oppose the Office of United States Trade Representative’s proposal to include 100 percent tariffs on motorcycles imported from the European Union with an engine size between 51cc and 500cc in the E.U. – U.S. beef hormone trade dispute.

Use the American Motorcyclist Association’s convenient tools to urge your federal lawmakers to oppose the USTR’s ill-conceived proposal before the Jan. 30 deadline to submit comments. Motorcyclists should not be penalized with exorbitant tariffs because of a beef trade dispute.

The AMA opposes the proposed tariff, because trade disputes residing within the boundaries of the agricultural industry should not be solved with trade sanctions levied against non-agricultural products.

Specifically, a 100 percent, or higher, tariff on these motorcycles is proposed. This will cause serious and potentially irreversible harm to American small- and medium-sized business owners selling the vehicles. Additionally, consumers will be denied access to certain models of competition and recreational motorcycles that contribute to the lifestyle and wellbeing of millions of American families.

Affected manufacturers include: 1) Aprilla; 2) Beta; 3) BMW; 4) Ducati; 5) Fantic; 6) Gas Gas; 7) Husqvarna; 9) KTM; 10) Montesa; 11) Piaggio; 12) Scorpa; 13) Sherco; 14) TM; and 15) Vespa.

Should the availability of product be hindered through unjustified trade sanctions on European-produced motorcycles, dealerships may close, leaving countless Americans without jobs.The negative effects of the proposed trade sanctions will not only harm the motorcycle sales industry, but will spread through the aftermarket equipment sector, recreation equipment sales, the sports entertainment industry and further down the line.

Make our voice stronger by sharing the AMA alert.
