Butch Sivulich and his kids have been long time members of MSC. Butch has been dedicated to working at Diamondback for many years and his son Josh also works at Diamondback doing the checkered flag.

Recently Butch and his family found out terrible news that his wife Amy was diagnosed with brain cancer. As we all know, medical treatments are costly and we are looking to support and donate to Butch and family during this difficult time. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to help please follow the “go fund me” link below.

Championship Points for Echo Valley MX 4-12-15

Just to let all riders know – I will begin checking your background colors on MAY 10TH at Twister Valley. From that point on if you do not have the correct colors displayed your points will not count.

Expert needs to have White backgrounds – black is not acceptable

Amateur needs to have Yellow backgrounds – white is not acceptable

Novice needs to have Black backgrounds – white is not acceptable

Youth 65cc and ALL Mini classes need to be Yellow – white is not acceptable

50cc Pee Wees need to be White

This is in the MSC rulebook.

Also, please consider how hard it is to score your bikes when the plates are covered in mud. It’s your responsibility to clean your plates in between moto’s.  And one last thing: Please have your number on all three plates!!  Think of how hard it is to score when there are no numbers….

March 29th – Round 1 – OCFMX

Motocross commences on March 29th, 2015 as Round 1 of the MSC Championship Motocross Series gets underway at the Orange County Fair Motocross facility in Middletown, NY.  Speaking with track owner, Mike Gurda, he says most of the track work is complete and they will be ready for action come Sunday morning.  Some new additions to the track will develop early in the season and they are excited to get racing underway.

James Slaughter, Chairman of the MSC, says,”We are very glad winter is over, although we had some snow on Friday, the forecast going forward looks good and typical of spring in the northeast.  MSC is grateful that all of our sponsors and contingency programs remain intact for 2015.  Our 2015 membership is looking real good, we have to thank our dedicated riders who come back to MSC each and every year to participate in the historic series.”

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.
