Results from Rounds 1 of the 2015 SWVTA Series at Willis’ Woods in Palestine TX have been posted – here.
The CTTA quarterly meeting will be this Sunday March 15th. We are going to have a CTOR workday in the morning, eat a pitch-in lunch, then have our meeting. There has been a lot of work completed at CTOR for the upcoming State Series event, but there is a good bit left to do. Work will be primarily concentrated where it is most needed in the Saturday loop or “back area”. For those who are only attending the meeting and not bringing a motorcycle, BJ is working on getting the daily rate waived. BJ will let us know that answer shortly. A single day rate of $20.00 per person applies for those who are bringing a motorcycle. If paying the daily rate is a issue and will prevent you from attending this workday, please contact me or BJ and we will work something out. I’ll post an agenda and more details shortly.
We are very excited that CTOR has ramped up developing and if you haven’t seen the new riding areas (especially in the back area), come check it out. Texas Trials continues to strengthen and CTOR is an awesome addition. Come out and be a part of developing CTOR this weekend.
Despite the 6″ of snow that was on the ground Thursday morning, Ray and Laura Peters pulled off another fine event at Dawna & Sid Mauldin’s ranch in the Palo Duro Canyon. They had a little help from the fine weather that graced the weekend – it was a beautiful weekend for a trials event with temps in the 60s. Thanks to everyone that helped with the event!
Just a reminder, the Diamondback National is only a month away. Please plan to help Ray and Laura make the National event a huge success – they need your help. They will especially need experienced observers, please volunteer!
The dates for this years SWVTA Series have been set. Just like last year, it will be divided up between Spring and Fall. It is as follows:
Round 1: March 29 (Sun), Willis’ Woods, Palestine, Tx.
Rounds 2&3: May 2/3, Rio Bravo MX Park, Houston, Tx.
Rounds 4&5: June 6/7, McMahan Ranch, Smithville, Tx. (ITSA National)
Round 6: Sept. 20 (Sun), Bluebonnet MX Park, Deanville, Tx.
Round 7: Oct. 10 (Sat), Huffman Frams, Donie, Tx. (AFSP)
Round 8: Oct. 24 (Sat), Luchenbach, Tx. (Harvest Classic)
Round 9: Dec. 5 (Sat), McMahan Ranch, Smithville, Tx. (Awards Banquet)
Like last season, the best 5 rounds count towards year end trophies. Hopefully everyone can try and make as many as possible.
We had to shuffle around the date for the American Fallen Soldier Project (AFSP) to avoid some conflicts. By doing so, we’ve extended our series into early December. At our final round in December, we will also be collecting toys for a good cause. More on that later.
Also, even though it is not required to be an ITSA member to compete, I would highly encourage you to join. It cost $40 a year and will save you $10 entry per event. If you ride 4 rounds, it pays for itself. If it wasn’t for Bob Ginder and all of his hard work at ITSA, it would be damn near impossible for a group as small as our to provide liability to the land owners and the club to host an event. So please, if you can, join. The ITSA web site is:
Keep your feet up!

Hope to see y’all at Rounds 3 & 4!
