Full Version: Anybody up for a ROSEVILLE VINTAGE MEET - April 22nd?! > BMX Events & Gatherings > Member Gatherings
My brother Scott and I are throwing around the idea of hosting a VINTAGE MEET at the "Rockford of the West" -- Roseville track, during the U.S. Nationals. ABA's told us "go for it."
It'd be the same successful format as Rockford - Saturday only, with a Awards-type pizza party at Scott's Shop -- PATRIOT BIKES, in Fair Oaks (about 3 1/2 miles from the Roseville track).
Adding to the retro-ness, it sounds like there will be a good sidehack contingent showing up.
What do you guys think?! Anybody up for it?
--gOrk & Scott Barrette
i might be up for the 6 hour drive up there! be nice to yak attack with the NorCal/NW crowd.
Planning on it Gork. Me and Pimpin20 will both bring a couple cruisers and freestyle bikes. I finally get to make one of these get togethers and I only have to drive about 5-10 minutes to do it. Sweet!
If you guys need any help LMK.
I will talk to Scott when I get a chance. Guys the shop is actually on the same road as the track about 15 minutes away so it's easy to get to.
I'll be there with some bikes. Thumperpilot has a post on this somewhere also I think?
I will try my best to make it.
Heck yea. I'll be there with bells on.
sounds cool, I'll do my best
I'm down for the Nor-Cal/Gothe Park/U-Hills revival!!!

Have Scott put a replica of the Del Campo 1/4 pipe in the parking lot!!! don't forget to spray paint "Windsor shaves his *** with a norelco" on it....

I have a question for gOrk. I intend on racing, is there going to be anyone watching these bikes? I'd like to keep my #73 30th Redline retro if you know what I mean.

Scott sounded like they were gonna try and keep the Vintage stuff in a semi contained area. Just for that reason.

That would be a good idea. I was planning doing the hack race and class. Plus wifey and two kids are racing. I won't be there a lot of the time.

Do we need to register an entry for the vintage show?

Hey Gork,

Does the name Noel Painter mean anything to you? He and wife owned a shop in Nevada City and ran the track in Grass Valley in the 80s. He was good friends with John Owens which is another name that might sound familiar from the GV area. Scott Clark rode for John Owens' company, Bear Development for a short time. I met Noel a couple years ago and he couldn't think of your real name at the time. He kept telling me about a shop near Roseville that had a bunch of vintage stuff hanging on the walls but couldn't remember the name.

See you all on the 22nd.

I wondered the same thing myself so I called the number the ABA website had listed and it was the Patriot Bike Shop. I think it was gOrk's brother that answered.He told me that they hadn't been taking any names or entries yet and that I was the first to call. He took down my info and that was it. I would call and see what he says.

I might be up for the drive up there. I though I had a concert to go to but its sunday. Look for the puke green KGB Pyschoconnecta!
Sounds like a pretty cool event. I'll see you all there.
Is there a registration process for the Vintage show?
I'm still not sure about the registration, I'm guessing not...

It will be good to meet y'all, look for me in an ICEE jersey stalking around..

Hey, we got a little posse coming up from the SF area. We'll be disguised in Curb Dogs shirts. See you up there!
