Its done and in my hand. The check should go out next week say around Thursday. For the record this was one of the fastest grants I have worked on. I know it seems like a long time,but many things go into putting these deals together. And to clear up any confusion, Rich Farside in no way held up or slowed down the process. This is in refrence to keepitreal. Sometimes it takes several drafts of a proposal to come to a complete understanding and a workable deal. In this case,it came together quick after everboby understood the procedures. I really think the work being done will help NJBMX,and provide a better program for all. We need to stick together,and keep our eye on the ball. NJ has many very talented riders,and hopefull we can bring more new riders out.

Rich, thank you very much for all your work and especially your persistence in making this happen in the face of all the roadblocks that you came up against (me included). Most would have given up.
What I find amazing about NJ is that we have an incredible amount of riders with talent beyond racing or riding bikes, who are more than willing to donate their time and talent to get this sport we all feel so strongly about back on track.
Maybe it’s just that tenacious NJ attitude.
But we are taking over, that’s that.
Excellent job, now let’s get this thing on…
