i dont think its a matter of what shouldnt be done its just called “brainstorming” and you get the pros and the cons and you go from there.. you have to look at both sides you cant walk around with a bag over your head can you?November 7, 2006 at 4:44 pm #36214
well that depends on how you look….. 😆November 7, 2006 at 5:35 pm #36215CavemanMember
I think an all girls team would rock. I would also like to offer my services as team manager. 😆
I think if anyone started a team they would have enough common sense to pick ladies that aren’t going to race each other.
Around 1990 I believe it was Colour Control that fielded an all girls team with Dianna Bowling, Cindy Davis and others. (Right now all of the NiBbLers are saying, “Who are those people and what’s Colour Control?”) It rocked.
If somebody wants to do it, they should push for a rule change and do it. Problem solved.November 7, 2006 at 5:53 pm #36216
oh….Cavey….marry me!November 7, 2006 at 5:58 pm #36217RaidenHaydenMember
Caveman, letting you run the team would be like letting the fox into the hen house, but yeah I remember Colour ControlNovember 7, 2006 at 6:38 pm #36220
bill you said what i was thinking.
maybe caveman should just get more sleep so HE can race.
:wink:!November 7, 2006 at 6:42 pm #36221

and no more of these before a race… CHampagneNovember 7, 2006 at 7:02 pm #36224bmxgirlmomMember
I actually like the idea of an all girls team…but to maximize their points potential, most of the girls on the team would have to race as Rookies, Novices or Experts to avoid the beating their own team-mates conflict.
Currently there are only about 15 girls who race in NJ. The vast majority of those are in the 6 to 10 age group which means 6-7, 8-9, and 10-11 girls would be the teams main draw. There are (3) 16 & over girls-1 away at college now, 1 going to college next fall, (1 or 2) 14-15 girls, and maybe (1) 12-13 girl. Amanda Robbins races as a Novice, so she would be a good pick. All the others are registered as girls and as such, unless they opt to race boys for the day, have to race girls. If they choose to race boys for the day, they have to be manually changed from girls to novice (girls registered as girls, have to race Novices) they would then be pointed as a Novice in regards to finishes. Not usually a help for the team in the older classes 13 and up cause most of the girls cannot beat all of the boys in their age group.
Can we change the team rules? Yes. Should we? Well, that depends on if there is someone out there that wants to run an all girls team.November 7, 2006 at 7:35 pm #36226
Maybe one of the mom’s could encourage their daughter to sorta co-manage a team. Teach em the ropes.
It could very well give one of the ladies who was thinking about quitting motivation to stay with it to help new girls get into it.November 7, 2006 at 11:00 pm #36229
I would also like to offer my services as team manager.
I know Dave was busting…
But, it has a ring to it..
The Cavegirl Team?November 7, 2006 at 11:57 pm #36230CavemanMember
The Cavegirl team. Yeah, there’s a good idea. Me managing a team of underage girls. The guys from Dateline NBC would have a field day. 😆 You better believe I was busting.
But seriously, once again we’ve all gotten sucked into another hypothetic idea and started pontificating about it for no reason (Including me and now I feel like a dope). Janeen is right.
Can we change the team rules? Yes. Should we? Well, that depends on if there is someone out there that wants to run an all girls team.
If somebody actually wants to do it let them press for a rule change. If not, we’re wasting our time pontificating about nothing.November 8, 2006 at 12:10 am #36231
But it is better to have loved and lost….then to never to have loved at all.
I think what I was going for was something like we finished up with.
Yea, we can do it, just need someone to run it and a simple rule change.
Instead of starting with a can’t do attitude.
Do ya sorta know what I mean?
Cave, are you coming to the banquet? I believe the pa system thing is being discussed there.November 8, 2006 at 12:22 am #36232SullivanMember
