I have been reading alot of the posts that have been going on. There are many different views and different ideas. It is not easy to get 13 different promoters together and to agree on doing this or that. Yog has been president of the CRA for many years and as being president at these meetings is not an easy job. He can not say to much because his job is to run the meetings. As for rumors that CRA is closing up, WE ARE NOT. As promoters of the CRA we should stick together and try to fix things. Having clubs and single promoters within the CRA causes tension at these meetings. You have clubs deciding to go to OMA thinking they will get better turnouts, you have promoters quitting to go on there own. Tracks need to step up to the plate and make their tracks so people want to come ride at them, to make them presentable, fun, challenging and safe. They need to take pride in what they are doing and presenting themselves and their track to the riders. Yog, Peggy and I put alot of time into the CRA behind the scenes that alot of people do not realize. We want to make the CRA what it was, but I believe those days are gone. We have to make the best of it now, and the promoters need to step up to keep the CRA going instead of backstabbing each other. There are many practice tracks out there now as to where there were not years ago. It is not about seeing who can have the most members, CRA, OMA, or AMA, it is about giving the riders a place to ride, to take their families for a day or weekend and enjoying themselves. We have 3 girls, 24, 20 and 3 1/2 and we have given up alot in our lives to be at the race tracks whether it be setting up the track, mowing, trimming setting up for the banquet, or even working at our track or helping out at some other tracks. Our family puts our heart and soul into it. As far as going in and changing class structure and all of the other ideas, we may have to start back at taking baby steps again to rebuild CRA to what it once was. I think this has been a real eye opener to everyone, I hope that you guys do not give up on the CRA and will continue to support us and trust that we are going to try to fix things. Like I said, it maybe taking baby steps, but please bare with us. The CRA banquet is January 9th this year which is a couple of weeks earlier that it has been. The prices have not gone up, and what other banquets can you go to and receive the stuff that CRA hands out. This is what you have been riding for all year. The CRA is a sanctioning body of these promoters and the funds that are taken in all year are put into the banquet to give back to the riders. EVERYONE IS INVITED TO THE CRA BANQUET, NOT JUST THE WINNERS. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE STARTING MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH. PEGGY HAS SENT OUT MX, FLAT TRACK, SERIES RACES AND 3 WHEELER SERIES CERTIFICATES. Sorry that I have taken up so much of your time to read this, but CRA IS HERE TO STAY.
