2015 Schedule

Greetings, the 2015 schedule has been finalized and posted to the site.  Currently, we have no Trials Master, Mentor, or Helpers identified for any of the 2015 events.  Please take a look at the schedule and decide which event(s) you would like to signup for as a Trials Master, Mentor, or Helper.  The cut off date for sign up is 12/31/2014.  Please contact me (phirt@umta.org) as soon as possible with the  event(s) you would like to sign up for and work.   After the signup period ends, if we have a scheduled event with no Trials Master, the event will be canceled.  As I receive volunteers, I will update the schedule so everyone can see what events still need workers.  So please get back to me with the event(s) you wish to work ASAP!!!!!

Also, you will see on the schedule several new activities and roles.  In 2014, we had great success with the mentor program.  Marc Dittman rode most of the season mentoring and helping newcomers to MotoTrials.  In 2015, we want to make this activity a permanent part of our events.  That said, Mark will not be riding 2015 the whole season as a mentor so we need to have several upper class riders volunteer and mentor the newcomers to Mototrials. The mentor role is a great way to help grow our club and earn additional year end points!  In addition, we have added a training day to one of our event weekends.  Brad Villand will be the instructor along with several other upper class riders.  This event will be a great way to get some pointers to improve your riding skills!

As noted on the schedule, we have 2 work weekends identified.  Steve Anderson will be the Trials Master and work coordinator for those weekends except for Sunday 5/10.  As part of the first work weekend, we will be holding a Trials Master training session to help any new Trails Master with setup and any questions about setting up an event!

Check the schedule out and signup ASAP to help make the 2015 season a great success and loads of FUN!!!!!!
