    Used to be lots around NEPA...

    ... Millford, White Haven, Bear Creek, Merli, Coburn... now NONE, other than Tour de Tikes, Danville, other than that your gong to have to travel to Williamsport Wellsboro or hit the H2H or MASS series races further out!

    People have talked about doing a race at mOOn, but all I ever heard was talk. I have approval at HCGA in Hunlocks to host a race, but I have too much work maintaining and doing Moto races to be involved!

    HCGA is a group of private property land owners...

    ... much like a hunting club, they are into races and racing...

    ... but from another aspect involving people in our area it is a shame no one will step up and do races like the old days, but I know from experience and have been involved in many of those races back in the day. It takes a huge amount of work and commitment to get them done.

    More so the key word is "commitment" You pretty much have to blame the big mouths who always say "Oh I'll be there to help" or show up and do nothing on race day that ruined it! Lots of lazy deada88es in our area! It's always the same 15 guys out of a 100 or more member club that shows up and get the job done! Sorry to be so blunt but that's the way it is!

    That's pretty much how it is all over, IMO. Some better, some worse, some very very few are excellent.
