2023 Updated JOBS Worker Points Posted
 
The Board has approved the points for those who had administrative jobs.  Check the latest WORKER POINTS to see what color discount card you will get in 2024.  Please review to make sure that we redistributed your family points properly.  If something is not correct, send us an email with how you would like your family's points redistributed.  Comments will be accepted up until January 31, 2024 and if there are any changes needed, one more final update will be made.  If no changes are needed, then this will be considered the FINAL.

In Memory of Longtime PITS Member Jim Winter
It is with sadness that we announce that longtime PITS member and friend to many, Jim Winter, passed away on April 21, 2023.
 
Below is the announcement from his friend Bob Mark:
Jim Winter completed his last event on Friday, April 21st. He completed an incredible ride, his feet having never left the pegs and smooth forward motion his entire run.
 
Celebrating his transition are his wife of 62 years, his daughter and 2 grandchildren, and one beautiful great grand daughter. He will be ensconced in a memorial in the High Country, created from his collection of 2000 lbs of vintage 70's and 80's Honda cranks, pistons, and engine casings.
 
No memorial service is planned, but I'm sure he'd appreciate any support you might give to a novice rider, as he did for so many of us.
