    Auburn Oak Tree Super D cancelled

    From Jimmyboy himself:

    All my events within the Auburn State Park have been canceled due to contact
    problems and changes that have come up late in the game. The park is making
    it harder and harder to put on any events. Some areas are being closed due
    to what they over use and high inpact. The state park and some of the other
    race directors are at odds as the ASRA has not paid there water bill and
    there is no water at some of the areas we hold our events .This is one of
    the reason we are having problems with the event contacts as they want us to
    pay the high fee's but have no water for cross country or endurance events.I
    am asking for them to cut the events fee's down as there are not holding up
    to there end of the deal.
    I have work for many years to put on good clean events for MTB riders. I
    will be sending out full refunds and will let you know what day we will hold
    the free Oak Tree Super D. Free shirts, and metals to each class.
    This contact for this event was put in place in Jan of this year. I did not
    cancel the event they did.
    I stand to about $3,000 that I have already put into this event ,But I
    would still like to put on a free super D as the shirts amd award metals are
    all ready here. I will e-mail each racers in the weeks to come on the
    loction and time. Again ,I am very sorry as I have worked very hard at this
    event. This is what happens when you stand up to the "man".

    Bummer.

    Snarky comments that don't add value to the thread aside, Jimmy is one of the hardest working promoters out there and always puts on a first class event. It's a shame that this is tripping him up. It sounds like he's not the only one getting the cold shoulder and that has to have some real measurable impacts financially for the local community.

    Could these dollar amounts of lost revenue quantified and would that information help move the powers that be to a more affable position?

    I'm with kidwoo, Jimmy's emails are hard to read. /grammer b!tching

    Jimmy puts on great races!
    I think if he puts on the free race he should put up a tip jar. I bet there are lots of racers out there that really value Jimmy's hard work and would be willing to part with a few bucks to encourage him and keep him in the game.
    Take a look at and consider "liking" my Vegan Athlete Facebook page.

    Come on guys, let up! Jimmy states regularly that he does not have the best online grammar,, cut him some slack and just translate his posts,, it's not that hard.

    BTW,, as him being an ex Navy SEAL, I'm sure Jimmy knows how to listen to the man.

    I'd like to respond to this comment with how I really feel but I won't....
    A lot of us have great respect for Jim Northey and the the aforementioned comment is simply classless.

    That's a real bummer too, in addition to the Olmstead Loop Challenge being cancelled. I couldn't find any info on the free super d he's talking about, would that be on the same day as this one was supposed to be? I think the tip jar is a great idea!
    Thank you Lord for strength, endurance, and salvation.

    Tip Jar? Tip #1: Don't have a race unless you have a permit for the race.

    Don't you think you have stirred enough crap up about this??

    Can't you read? Jimmy had a permit. ASRA pulled the rug out from under him. Cut him some slack. Jimmy is working his a$$ off trying to put together high quality race events.
    Naysayers like yourself are not helping.

    Jimmy...

    I feuded with Jimmy here on the forum a few years back. I also slammed him for his bad grammer. Then I got to know him and see the fruits of his labors as a race promoter and promoter of MTB in general.

    He has been doing this.... with ASRA and other agencies for years on behalf of the MTB community.

    It's your right to bash him all you want but I suggest that you find the opportunity to meet him in person.
    What is a "healing vibe"???

    Thank You, Jimmy

    For all you do for us...
    +3 on that tip jar

    ss34x18 dude, get some class before someone enters you in the "chain-less" class against your will somewhere preferably somewhere remote...

    Tip # 2 - Don't give tinker jaurez a broken grand prize and claim it as New. Putting the ferrari in reverse didn't work for Ferris Bueller to take the miles off, so why would a drill to the speedo work on a scooter?
