2014 MSC BANQUET WAS A SUCCESS

On February 15th, 2015, motocross riders from all over the northeast trekked through the ice and snow to the Hudson Valley Resort & Spa in the quaint mountain town called Kerhonkson, New York.

With the entries to the banquet growing year after year, we had to expand the area we used once again.   This is such a good sign of the health of our sports committee.  MSC is now 56 years old and the representation of 3 generations from the Stempel family shows the commitment of our members.

Just like your commitment, MSC has worked extremely hard to to secure the prizes that were given out and raffled off.  No other banquet can boast the offerings we have, and we are very proud of that.  Two brand new motocross bikes were raffled off.  Big Boyz Toys Kawasaki of Marlboro, NY gave the MSC a great deal on the 2015 Kawasaki KX250F and KX450F.  Those bikes were #38 and #39 of bikes raffled off to our riders over the many years we have done this, which is over $195,000 in motorcycles raffled.   These figures are astonishing.

Special mention to Jim Moroney’s Cycle, whose raffle of their GoPro Hero 4 camera was once again a big success.

Here is the ADVANCEMENT POINT CHART so those of you who are getting close to moving up can keep an eye on where you are standing.  As soon as a rider reaches 125 in Novice or 250 in Amateur advancement points, you will no longer be allowed to run those classes. You will be moved up and your Championship points will remain where they are. Those of you getting close should check with me to see if you number will be available in the next higher class. If it is not, you will need to change your number when you advance.

Please remember that Championship Points and Advancement points are different. A lot of people look at the Championship points and think that riders are over their limit for advancing.

Proper color backgrounds need to be run in order for your points to count! Pee Wee’s should have WHITE. any Youth class above 50cc, needs to use YELLOW plates for the points to count.  We know that other districts may use white, but we do not. A simple fix is putting yellow duck tape around the edges when you race with us and I will count it.

Novice riders should be running BLACK plates.  Any other color will not count.  Colors are checked every race and if I miss anyone, I check on Vintage 54’s pictures.

 

All of this information can be found in the rule book located on the top of the website.  If you are a newer rider – please read the rules and know what is expected of you.
