Nope..and KevH…I heard that they are working on being able to go to a “Non_paper” results whereas you can just download the finishes and fire them off over the net! Will make for less bookeeping.
BTW..the program does just that also..bookeeping, works like a cash register..all you have to do is type in the amount that you are charging for a race and it automatically tallies up the total as you go along. It even has discounts and free races for officals, or whatever promotinal thing you are running, built in.
Can also be set up to run two or three moto tranfer..does mailing labels..can keep track of how many wins a rider has..even how much money a rider raised for the Race for Life..it’s all in there and can be run on anything..except DOS!! (Snicker)
Just got off the phone with Bill…yes, the ABA software is basically the “Moto-Builder for Dummies” and can be installed in any computer pretty much.
Hey..If I can do it anyone can. Also..the Moto maker software is updated constantly and any changes are either sent by disc or emailed if you want and doesn’t cost you a dime.
By far, and this is not to get the NBL people here in an uproar, much…there is no comparing this program to anything they have, period. It is used at all ABA tracks so what is being done in NJ is being done in Alaska, or Pa, or wherever there is an ABA Track.
The support staff is excellent as well..Even if you are having a problem at a race on a Sunday afternoon..you can reach one of the directors and he will get it figured out for you. I have on occassion had to do just that and it was great.
So, yes..very easy, excellent support, excellent program. Why anyone would want to do it otherwise is beyond my comprehension!
Ditto here…drives ya crazy, one minute you’re on, the next..NOT!! 😕
HAppy Birthday Brett!!
I usually steer clear of political debates, but I can’t ignore this one.
We should have done to Saddam what the British did to a bunch of radical ragheads back in 1916 I believe.
They caught 7 extremists back then throwing bombs for Allah and what have you. Well, the Brits lined up 6 of them in front of a firing squad, took the youngest off to the side and said “Watch this” Before they were shot the officers smeared pig fat and bacon grease all over the condemmed. Now, if you know the Muslim religion, which by the way is a great religion unless it is twisted by extremists, you can’t go to Allah if you are “Dirty” Since Muslims consider a pig an unclean animal they don’t touch them at all…soooo, guess what..6 Muslims were condemmed to spend the afterlife without ever getting close to Allah.
No Martyers in that group!
The soldiers then released the one prisoner with the instructions to go back and tell his brethern ragheads what happened. He did, and the BS stopped until after WWII when they got all stupid again. Hence the situation we find ourselves in once again.
They should have done this to Saddam right before he dropped thru the trap door…and then let everyone know about it!!..CNN, FOX, CSNBC ABC..everyone! The hell with being Politically Correct with this vermin already.
The troops over in Iraq and anywhere else these problems arise should do the same thing. Dip there ammo in pig fat, along with the bombs and missles, and let them know that this is what is happening. How much you wanna bet they scurry back in their holes and hide? Maybe a simplistic answer and I bet someone raises objections over it because of religious implications and depriving bomb throwing radicals the right to practice their religion while heaving bombs and bullets. I say put the objectors out there as well..or let them go live in caves and holes in the ground with their friends.
We also need to bring back George Patton, Teddy Roosevelt and Reagan. They at least knew how to fight a war and didn’t turn it into a political mess. They got the job done.
You know, maybe I shoudn’t step into this mess, but the more I follow this thread, and problems surrounding the state organization and the NBL by-laws, or the lack thereof….a simple solution to this problem as far as accountability problem…each member of the NBL over the age of 18 has this power, since the Nj organization I am assuming is a Non-Profit” organization and files under the US IRS tax code of 501-C-3, all you have to do is ask for a presentation of the financial records. These must be surrendered on demand..no questions asked, no exceptions granted, period.
Faulure to comply will result in the loss of non profit status and a audit by the IRS and any illegal activities that are not covered will result in some pretty hefty fines. Also, anyone being paid thru the organization must record, both the payee and the payer, that payment either with a W-2 that shows income taxes witheld (Must also present proof of a W-4 record) or a 1099 MISC.
Very simple gentlemen…show them just how “Mature” you really are.
PS…. if they fail to comply to your request, just make a visit to your local IRS office and let them know…they WILL make them comply, and then most likley pull an audit. Remember,..Al Capone thought he was a tough guy until he ran into the IRS. CAn you say “Alcatraz”? 😯
It’s totally enclosed and is a huge convention center.
Just take a pic of Bill Hayden and draw horns on it!! 😈 Lol..sorry Bill, coudn’t resist!! 😆
I think I would use up the whole internet if I tried to post my experience! 😯

I know the feeling…I just had to get rid of the old Wyoming Valley BMX board because of an eruption of stupidity over the weekend. Although it wasn’t associated with any track anymore I left it up as a general board, but after this weekend, hoooBoy..got nasty, name calling, slandering. That’s why the bike shop board is so closely moderated..like this one, to keep out the idiots

They have these camera’s at WallyWorld that take 35mm film that snap a picture as soon as someone comes into range of the sensor, just like an outdoor sensor light. They are called “Game Lights” Maybe a few of them as they are not that expensive, about 40$, are battery operated, and may just catch them in the act.
….Certainly got my attention!! 😯
In Pa., there is a law, the Recreational Use of Land and Water Act of 1969, which, until a few years ago was unheard of, and the trial lawyers tried to keep it that way.
What it states is that an owner of land or water, if he chooses to admit the public onto his land for the purpose of recreational activites AT NO CHARGE, that owner is limited to the amount of liability that he can assume, in this case, $5,000. There isin’t a lawyer out there that will get off his ass for $5K.
That is why all of a sudden here in Pa you see a lot of towns opening skateparks, because it covers munincipalities as well.
We use this law at our trails here in Plains, WhiteSox Dirt Park. As long as there are signs posted with this law advertised, as we do, we are protected from lawsuits.
Just type “RULWA” in your browser and read up on it. I’m sure there is something in NJ that pertains to this, it’s probably just buried somewhere at the behest of the ambulance chasers and bottom feeders…( I don’t like lawyers..even my lawyer hates lawyers!!)
I think….wasn’t Dean Hickey, who at one time was with the ABA, then got involved with the ICA, then went back to the ABA afterward, involved? I seem to recall something like that going on about then.
