RMMC Race Gas Program, Changes

During the latter part of 2018, those who were volunteering time to the Red Springs Trail Project were earning RMMC Race Gas credits for their RMMC account. Recently I received an email from Mac L. of RMMC. Unfortunately we will no longer earn Race Gas credits for work on the Red Springs Project. Review Mac’s message below.

Hello George,

Here at Rocky Mountain we appreciate everything that organizations like TRS do for the sport and for trail maintenance. You guys have been great!!

However, as we move into 2019, we find ourselves at odds with the terms of the RaceGas program. I know that Tyler was able to bend a few rules to help out your group in 2018. Unfortunately, Tyler has left the company. The RaceGas Program remains the same for 2019. I have included a link outlining the program.

Please respond with an acknowledgement to the terms of the program.

Should you have an event with 50 or more participants, we would be happy to provide RaceGas credits.

I have also attached a PDF letter that you can provide to your riders. This will help them understand the program better, access their credits easier and provide you more complete data.

I’m looking forward to great season with your group. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Mac L. // RaceGas Director – Rocky Mountain ATV/MC

Patagonia Likes TWBD!

Steve Brown and George Wysopal were in Patagonia last night to attend the bi-monthly Town Council meeting. While at the meeting they presented an appreciation plaque to the Town Council for their support of TRS’ motorcycle event and fundraiser, There Will Be Dust VI. Thank you letters were also issued to the Gathering Grounds and Stage Stop Inn. Both of these businesses provided TWBD participants and guests outstanding service and meals.

After Steve handed off the plaque and thank you letters, all in the audience and Council members applauded our expressions of thanks. Their reaction certainly surprised both of us. Several of the Council made it known they were extremely pleased with the success of our event and the respectful behavior all participants demonstrated while visiting Patagonia. The Council also made special note and high praise for the $1,500 donation to the local food bank. Further discussions with the Council confirmed TRS is welcome to come back in November of this year for the next running of There Will Be Dust!

January 8, 2019 Club Meeting

Thanks to all who turned out for last night’s meeting. We had a full house again. Heard some great stories about memorial trail rides and the bar banging action at the last AMRA race.

There was a very special guest in the audience last night. His name is Joe Cook. Joe is the father of TRS club member Mike Cook. Joe is a WWII Navy Veteran who served his country in the South Pacific. At a very young 92 years of age, he serves as an inspiration for all of us. We were honored to join us for the club meeting.

Last night we also congratulated all the TRS racer’s for their fine performance at the last AMRA race, the Buckey Hare Scramble.

News From The AMA, USFS Travel Management Rule

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Off-Road Vehicle Association joined 18 other groups to petition the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Forest Service to rescind or revise its 2005 Travel Management Rule. The rule requires designation of roads, trails and areas that are open to use by motor vehicles and prohibits motor vehicle use off of the designated system. Before the rule was put in place, motorized access was permitted unless specifically prohibited due to evidence that significant environmental damage would result. The petition was filed by the Texas Public Policy Foundation on behalf of 22,497 individuals represented by organizations in six states.

(Not sure how far this will go, but TRS will keep its eye on this story)
