i would like to take a min to thank brett for all the time he puts into this sport. as a parent i appreciate all the pics he takes, the videos, dvds ,not to mention the magazine and a host of other things he does to promote the sport. i know most of the time he hears a lot of grief but i think its appropriate during this time of year to say a big THANK YOU for all that you do… not just for cj but for njbmx in general…when a new idea is put out there and anyone has doubt you seem to look the other way no matter how many people say its not possible, and you find a way if it has anything to do with making things better for the riders….
there are many people who do things behind the scenes who do not look for a thank you or a pat on the back or brag about what they do for their track…. bret is one of these people.
a few thank yous:
thanks for your role in supporting the resurgence of the pro /am open in nj. bringing the older riders together is what will keep them racing for a long long time..
thanks for allowing people to communicate here on your website and for making it available for important news and info regarding bmx in nj.
thanks for posting all the pictures on cj website.. i have heard a few parents talk about it during the races recently at cj…how much it means to their riders to see themselves up on the site….(one mom was telling me her son brags about it during show and tell at school..lol)
thanks for listening to the riders and encouraging them to speak their mind( when they didnt even know they had a voice)
last but not least thank you christine for putting up with some of the bs and for giving up so much of your family time for the riders of njbmx.

I think hes smarter then all of us and started a bmx site right before the olympics. $$$$$$$$$ snow boarding shawn white……… olympics $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ get my drift there has to be another motiveDecember 9, 2007 at 10:31 pm #53316
Under that premise, this sport would die, why? Because at this point in time BMX relies on volunteerism. Thanks BrettDecember 9, 2007 at 10:32 pm #53317

Call or email any of the people under the “We Recommend” part of the front page and ask them if they’ve ever given money to me or for that matter product…
(I sorta think Scooter is busting my chops but that’s just me.)December 9, 2007 at 10:49 pm #53322
i know i have seen other bmx sites that appear to be 80% ads now thats the first place scoots should be looking….December 9, 2007 at 11:05 pm #53325bmiddaughMember
For the first time I actually did do something that required taking in money.
I told people if we could get at least 15 people to buy them I could get the price down to $15.00.
Guess I should tell everyone they cost $10.80 a piece to make, (no big secret go to cafepress.com and make yourself an account and you too can make calendars, lol)
Ok, mack where’s the $4.20 profit going?
Well, I promised CJ 2 bucks from each calendar sale goes to their track.
So that’s part of it.
I think the other 2 will go to the state, they will get a donation from here as well.
I have a few left that I have to get out to people, I’ll check the names tonight and give them a call or email, if I don’t hear from them by Jan 6, I’ll have em at CJ. Then in Jan, I’ll give CJ what I promised them, and at January’s state meeting, I’ll give them a donation as well.
Unless you grew up with BMX around you and were friends with people like Charlie Huber, Bob Warnicke, the Gleasons, James Cerullo, Fran from Clifton Speed Center, Harry Myers….you”ll never understand my motivation.
I am, also, MORE than willing to show people how to do what I do, get calendars going, DVD’s, websites, whatever it takes to make BMX (BMX racing, freestyle, flatland, yadda yadda) bigger and better.
I think the biggest thing though, right now, is someone needs to open a new track in the state of NJ…
I actually think that this year, the Cranmer’s deserve the biggest thank you as we would have lost a track this year, had it not been for their family stepping up.
So at this time, I say thanks to Scott, Donna, Scotty and the rest of them.
And I will also say that there will be more thank you’s coming.
Will be the year.December 9, 2007 at 11:09 pm #53326likemeyenutsMember

Bah humbug General Scooter. Get the stick out of your ***. He must be one of those guys who come to see what’s going on here at Brokenspokes then goes back and tells all the lurkers. Was this funny guy up for change in NJ or was he one that just said, “we will take that into consideration.”December 10, 2007 at 12:16 am #53332BIGANT-DOGMember
