Event #12 – Turkey Trial, October 28-29

10/15/2017

The Saturday Series was changed from the “Vintage Beginner Series” to the “Family Trial Series”. Since the change, Saturday Organizers have been easing up the difficulty to match the following Sunday Classes. So, if you’ve been competing in a class lower than what is recommended below and you are not competing for an Overall Placement for Series Championship, consider moving back up to your recommended class. Saturday “should” be easier than Sunday. There is always the OPEN Class (formerly the Pleasure Class) that allows you to ride whatever you want. For example, a rider that “should” move up but is not comfortable could use the OPEN Class to ride everything but the obstacles they are not comfortable riding.

4-Line = Not recommended for Sunday Class A Events
3-Line = Not recommended for Sunday Class A Events
2-Line = Sportsman
1-Line = SI
0-Line = INT
0+ (optional) = ADV

This Trial will be held at the Prairie City SVRA, CA.  Have a smart phone?  Use the Calendar Event Details and click on map to get driving directions and GPS coordinates to take you to the exact location of the signups.

Turkey Trial Dates Changed

8/17/2017

The Bob Williams Jr Memorial Trial (a.k.a. Turkey Trial) dates have been changed from Nov 18-19 to Oct 28-29. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We knew the possibility of the dates would change which is why the calendar listed these dates as TENTATIVE until now. We have to wait until we meet with Park Officials around this time of the year to confirm any dates. The new dates are better for our Organizers who won’t have to deal with the Lilliputian Hare Scramble Event (which has always been difficult to set up in advance due to that event closing off much of the park the entire weekend. These new dates also offer other advantages such as potentially better weather and it also now occurs before the time changes so more daylight. We do realize these new dates occur the weekend before Halloween. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Bear Valley TENTATIVE Dates now Confirmed

8/10/2017

The Bear Valley dates have been shown as TENTATIVE all season until now. The dates on the calendar are confirmed. There may be changes to the actual location of the signup area and/or main parking area due to construction. The Google Maps will be updated to show the new location when the Flyer comes out.

The only remaining TENTATIVE dates are the last Event of the year, the Turkey Trial. We are working with Prairie City Officials on nailing down a date that works best for our Organizers and competing clubs.

Checker Signup Reminder for Schaad Ranch Trial, April 29-30

4/23/2017

A message from the Schaad Ranch Trial Organizers:

As P.I.T.S members, we all know that we have to check at least a couple times a year – just to do our part. With that in mind, we’d like to remind you that we still need checkers for next weekend’s Schaad Ranch Trial.  There really is no better time to give back to your fellow members than springtime in the Sierra foothills. Just imagine yourself standing in the shade in perfect 70° temps, next to a rushing river or babbling brook, watching your friends do their best.

But wait, there’s more. Lunches this year will be provided by the world famous Andrae’s Bakery. I know what you’re thinking – “Stop, that’s enough. Where do I sign up?”  However, checkers will also receive the much coveted Schaad Ranch fanny pack bottle carrier!  Ask anyone who won a fanny pack last year, and they’ll tell you, they don’t know how they ever lived without one. The packs are in limited supply and when they’re gone, they’re gone. What would you pay for this opportunity? $200 or maybe 5 easy payments of $29.95. Well, not today – with your exclusive P.I.T.S. membership you’re eligible to get all of this for FREE! that’s right, just click on one (or both) link(s) below to sign up and collect your prize. Offer expires in 6 days.

Thanks.

For riders: if you own multiple pairs of boots, bring them along. Your feet might get wet.
