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.
