How about an option to do local days with the options available, and travel for NESBA dates in the Southeast, and maybe a VIR trip or two?

STT and Motovid, which isn't really a change for the norm.
Although, budget may cut the number of total days for me.

Financial times baby, financial times. They ain't running the org like Obama, spending more money than they take in.

Don't blame NESBA for market saturation.

Just cause Midwest ain't here doesn't mean that riding with them at VIR, Barber, Jennings, NOLA, Barber, Road Atlanta, etc... ain't gonna be a blast.

Besides, still have good options to ride locally.

You are right Wink , but I think the better the region they expanded does the less of a chance we have in getting the MW back . Was'nt that the reason they gave for closing the MC region in 2010 I am sure we absorbed some of those members but it did'nt help .I would love to ride with them again and earn my A bump ! I just think I would be betraying the memory of the MW if I run right down there and ride with them !( See those guys up there will come down here and ride screw em up there )

STT days make sense since two of their primary tracks are only 45mins to an hour away, CCS will be a fun challenge as will be the racing down at putnam

Similar to the last few years minus NESBA.

STT events locally, Putnam and RA for sure, never ridden Grattan but it looks fun. Motovid Wednesdays for Blackhawk at least four or five times.

I've pretty much ridden with whatever group was at a track that I wanted to attend. STT Advanced will fill up fast this summer!
