SUNSHINE STATE BMX ASSOCIATION, INC.
ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION
November 11, 2006
State Points Keeper ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Kathy Bostrom ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Wanted to explain the changes that have been made with the new points system regarding the pointÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s structure & class structures.
1. Local Level Only- Mains will be pointed as rider finishes per their class.
5. Pilot Program- Alice stated that the NBL is hoping other states will adopt the New Points Program. Florida is the pioneer and is actually being used as a pilot program to find glitches and to see what works and what doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t. We will be able to tell them where they need to make changes in the program at the NBL Competition Congress. Alice encouraged everyone to have a positive attitude.
State Race Commissioner ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Alice Bixler ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ stated that we started our New State Season last week and she has received phone calls and emails about the new points program. Most are complaining, however, some are stating they like what we are doing. Alice stated that the silent vote of people spoke for itself today when we had more riders today then we had last year. She feels people are looking for change and this is a good change.
