I have decided to take it upon myself to have a meeting with everyone who wanted to come to CJ on the 9th.
There will be a little BBQ action and an informal BMX relaxed atmosphere.
Then when everyone else decides they are ready, we will already be 3 steps ahead.
This Saturday Sept 9th about 4:30
Brick, NJ (It’s about 10 minutes south of CJ)
There is a public skatepark minutes from the house we will be meeting at for those who want to ride afterwards.
PM me for directions.September 6, 2006 at 3:47 pm #34229CrazyCraigMember
Man am I glad you posted that right away, I almost told my wife there was no meeting this weekend. Whew! If I had told her she would have plans made in 2 seconds, Not that I would mind, but then try telling her the meeting is back on and her plans are done. 😯September 6, 2006 at 7:01 pm #34246imwatchinMember
Bmiddaugh I think this is a good idea. But you need to have 2 people represent your side at the next state meeting and not this whole gang of people that you have. I feel this is where the problem is between your group and the board members.September 6, 2006 at 7:11 pm #34251
That’s a good idea. Then we should figure out who should be the ones.September 6, 2006 at 9:44 pm #34259BIGANT-DOGMember

I see your point too. But there is strength in numbers. As long as we are organized there shpuld not be a problem with all of us attending.September 6, 2006 at 9:52 pm #34263tuffneckMember
unless its a closed meeting that the board set up everyone is welcome to go its an open meetingSeptember 6, 2006 at 11:56 pm #34266
What I would do, is sit down, and think of a way to get your idea across!!!!
First, like the NBL, have a rider, who is voted on at every track, one for each, to represent the riders at the state level. Remember the idea isn’t to take over but to work together!!! That would give the state board at least six members, plus commish, plus treasurer, and secratary. To me to many chiefs, but it seems to be the NBL way!!!!! And the meeting (private that is) won’t be overburdened. Definitly have open meetings too!! As to include everyone and have you committee’s, again too much in the way of a buearacracy, but this seems to be a way to start.
The biggest thing that can be done however, is at the track level, and that is to promote promote promote!!!! The flyer thing is the way to go!!! Ask Rob Vargo at Cedar, when I was about six weeeks ago I asked “what have you been doing to increase the ridership?”. His reply “flyers, flyers everywhere!!”September 7, 2006 at 12:20 am #34269felt20Member
Good point Raiden promote and they will come this is how you get exposure for tracks and the sport.I feel with the internet the whole world should know.September 7, 2006 at 12:57 am #34278
Just gotta warn everyone that we have 4 small dogs at the house.
2 boston bulldogs
and a pomeranian.
They’re all friendly and cool, but just want to let those who might get freaked out by dogs know that.September 7, 2006 at 1:29 am #34279
