Who would Boycott the race that would show New Jersey who is really in control.November 4, 2007 at 2:55 am #52017RaidenHaydenMember
It’s definitely time for something drasticNovember 4, 2007 at 2:39 pm #52041likemeyenutsMember
Are you kidding? For some reason there are parents out there that are so point hungry they don’t care what is going on with the issues in Jersey.
I for one will boycott it. Now if you can convince everyone from out of state not to come then you will be good to go because a ton are out of staters who come race it since their tracks are closed for the winter now.November 4, 2007 at 3:09 pm #520424130forlifeMember
im not goingNovember 4, 2007 at 9:01 pm #52046BIGANT-DOGMember
Did not plan on going anyway.November 4, 2007 at 10:26 pm #52050sickryder83Member
i’m not going to let politics stop me from having fun. i am going to race and hopefully there is a big money open with some good competition. The only people that are going to boycot it are those that are on this site. not many others know of the things going on. The way to deal with these people is at the state meeting on the 9th. if i tried to stay away from idiots all the time, i would never be able to leave my house. i’m not viewing racing there as supporting eht. i’m looking at it as one of the last chances of the season to get some good racing in.November 4, 2007 at 10:30 pm #52052s4lnjMember

ThatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s where you are wrong. EHT will be brought out into the spot light for others to see what is going on. Maybe then you will have a different opinion.

With you having to race class to race open I hope you win, this way you have a chance of breaking even.November 5, 2007 at 12:39 am #52080moderator2Member

Maybe it is time for the riders to have a say. Not some board member.November 5, 2007 at 12:44 am #52081RaidenHaydenMember
This is the only way to make a difference, as I stated talking doesn’t work, they either yell, or if they don’t like what is being said walk out, that is not condusive to dialoque. So since talking isn’t working, walking mightNovember 5, 2007 at 4:10 pm #52102bmiddaughMember
I’m going to have to agree with sickyryder.
The time to address political issues is on December 9th at a state meeting.
Race the race.
I can’t attend as me and my gal are going to an Animal Rescue that day.
I will say this again, just like I did about the state championship.
If someone would like to take some pictures and write something, I will be more than happy to post it out there about the race.
Mike Vanderhoff will be there running it, speak to him, he is a personable guy , give him a hand.November 5, 2007 at 6:18 pm #52114
i can see jims point… the riders in nj are fortunate to have the vet day race this time of yr esp since most tracks in the north east are closed or ready to close… for some who are not doing much traveling this winter for races it may be one of the last big races ( besides iron man)
i agree with brett bring whatever up during new business at the state meeting…and encourage other parents or riders to attend so that they know what is going on..
boycotting a race blindly will do nothing constructive except make less riders/ less motos and addresses none of whatever problems you are trying to solve.
the riders and kids have to come first.in order to make a statement that says something specific, i would bring it up at the meeting and deal directly with the people you have issues with.
just my 2 cents.November 7, 2007 at 7:22 pm #52150bmxer901Member
Um what actually happened for you guys to want to boycott a race. I can see why its stupid to have to race class in order to race open but is that a reason to not go?November 8, 2007 at 5:46 pm #52186
