OK guys, here it is, June 3-4 2006, Saturday is our Race For Life, double point and Sunday is our State Qualifer, double point. Saturday we will have the VBMX show, race and judging, Sunday will be optional, Hornets Nest has enough parking and camping, it`s easy to get to from I-77 and I-85 and there are Hotels close by. I hope you guys can make it.

We will have awards for the show and t-shirts(probably), and will have trophies for the vintage races(i think).

I'll try to get there. It will be my first gathering of sorts, about a 2-3 hr drive. Wifey has one in the oven so it will be alot of 'splainin involved. Hope to meet some of you guys there.
Mr. Clean
hey skyway, come on down, we would love to have you. If she's not too far along, bring the wifey with you. We have alot of bmx moms down here. We'll keep you guys posted on the events we have planned.
skyway72
Thanks for the invite. She'll be about 7 months. She
loves it when I say bitd. I put a post up on vintage
freestyle and typed bitd, she caught me. Anyway is this a vintage race and swap thing? I've got two skyways to bring if we are "bragging" a little. Just joking, they are nothing to special. Hope to make it.
Thanks
Chris
Mr. Clean
Yeah, bring whatever you have. It's gonna be a show, a race, and a swap meet. Hope you can make it.

Mr. Clean
don't have one yet, but soon.
Kastanman
What classes are you guys having for the show? I've got a couple of projects I hope to have done by then.

Life's been a little crazy here since Dec 31.

Here’s a list
Dec. 31 House was broken into.
Jan. 12 Mother-in-law passed away.
Jan. 22 house was broken into again.
Feb 19 Father-in-law passed away
And I volunteered at the track and have spent every extra minute there trying to get it ready to race this Saturday.


LOL
zero9pro24
I guess we`ll do the same class break-down the way ya`ll had it, do we need to add a mid-school class?

I hope your life gets back to the norm.
PRO-PAIN
You know I'm there new bikes and all

Kastanman
We'll need a 70's class because I'm bringing my 79 MCS Spider. All we had was 80's 20" & 24", Freestyle, and Best of show.

I need a hotel. Can you get me the phone number to one close. Are their any links on the website?
zero9pro24
Yes, there is a Hotel link on the web site.
ncbmx.com
Kastanman
Is the Holiday inn the closest one to the track?
that70sguy

good to see you back out at the track this past weekend

and we should be able to have a 70s if i have to lend one of my bikes to make a class
PRO-PAIN
LMAO , yeah it was great getting back out, can't wait till this weekend!!!!
Mr. Clean
Hey Shawn, i'll find out for ya. Later.
Kastanman
No worries. I just booked my room at the Microtel that you have on the website.

Now I have to see if the wife wants to go.
Mr. Clean
cool, have a safe trip and we'll see ya soon.
Mr. Clean
ok guys, we want to make t-shirts but need an idea of how many and what size. Even if you don't come to the gathering, you can still buy a shirt. Reply here of send me, zero9pro24, or bmxmc a pm.

Hey Rick, we want to put the vbmx.com logo on the back, would that be ok?
Mr. Clean
ok guys, time is running out. Only three more months. I know that seems like a long time, but it will be here before you know it. We want our first gathering to be a success. We will have awards for show and race. As well as a swap meet, and t-shirts. So come on, make your plans now and let us know if your coming.

thanks,
Michael
