Credits are good for 1 year from the date of issue. If your membership expires before you use them, you'll just have to renew before using the credits.

How's the shoulder?

HA! Just got out of physical therapy, I was just about in tears. Getting range of motion back slowly, when that comes back I get surgery. How are you doing with the collarbone? *Reminder* Jim you and I are NOT allowed to pit next to weach other!

Yeah i have some credits in my account still even though my membership is expired, they'll stay for 1 year, so I plan on renewing my membership right before my first trackday next year and using up the credits then.

Especially not at the Chili Cook off! I'm doing much better and actually went on a street ride today up to Lake Geneva on the Beemer. Finally got the use of my arm and hand back last week after I had an adverse reaction to some of the locals they used in addition to the general during surgery. Took almost a month for me to have any use of my right arm and hand. I thought I was screwed for life.....

Good luck with the surgery, it's a bitch no matter what....

that's great news, jim!

another quick fact... credits that are transferred have a 1 year life from the transfer date (so if ur not gonna be able to use them in time, sell 'em )

Directly from the NESBA Rider's Manual:

e. Membership Rewards Program
This works very much like a frequent flyer miles. For every track
day you do, you get points. Different tracks have different point
values. Once you reach 5,000 points, a $50 credit is placed in
your NESBA account which can be used for towards trackdays or
memberships. Points will NOT expire! Individual point totals are
available on the website via your account.

I did 16 NESBA track days at various tracks in 2009 and I have 3500 points. Not sure if that includes anything from 2008 and don't know how many points each track day at any particular track is worth...

reward points are just a big tease. according to the events i've attended and my point balance, it comes out to around $1 a trackday hey, every little bit helps, right?

Glad you two are healing up! Hope this winter goes well for you guys, and that we see you back in the saddle next spring.

I'm pretty sure you can use credits for membership also, when you renew. I didn't decide to ride on the track this year after my big off last year until May 09, when I signed up for June events. It was a toss up between selling off my bikes, gear, and credits, and getting back on again and riding. Finally my "wife made up my mind for me", with a "don't be a pussy" speech, and I burned the credits on membership and track days.

After a painful crash, it can be hard to make the decision to get back on again. I know what you're talking about with range of motion, it's been over a year and I *still* don't have full range of motion in my neck. When I turn it to the right all the way, it hurts and I can hear and feel cartiledge grating between the C2-3 vertibrae.

Oh well. Shit happens.

I'm very stubborn. I got rid of the street bike a week or so after crashing, and got my new track only sitting pretty in the garage now! Looking forward to riding with you guys again.
