Hey Ryan, any details on the poker run this year? If I remember correctly, you start at 10? Looking forward to it, hope the weather holds out.

I'd like to come, if the weather holds out. Missed it last year but did it in 2001 and it was a great time.

Yes the start is at 10:0am. I just back from Boston so I will post more when I see what's going on. I think the loop is going to be around 30 miles long and a little easier than last year, or at least a easy and hard arrowing layout do to it being a dual sport.

I do know that lights must be mounted, no MX bikes this year.

Take IL Route 2 two miles south of Byron, IL to Townline Rd, then follow arrows.

Excellent time! Little more road than in the past but still great. Wish there was more than one of these a year. Keep up the good work!

Thanks to all that came, it turned out to be a great day and everyone had alot of fun. Most of the club members got to ride for once and got to enjoy themselves.

We had a very good turnout this year which is what the club needed. With the good turnout this year we will be able to make donations to many local places, Fire department, Future Farmers Assoc, etc. This helps us maintain a good relationship with our landowners and the local people in the area. So thanks again to everyone that came out.

We are looking at having 2 dual sports next year. There would be one in the spring and one in the fall. Both would be on different trails to keep things interesting. We would also have the enduro, so that's three times you could ride in the area.

We are also going to try to get more land this winter to keep us offroad, maybe all offroad. So wish us luck and maybe you'll be riding new land next year.

Two D/S events? Sounds great. My Enduro days are over, though. I was a lousy timekeeper and rider 25 years ago! I actually enjoyed the road sections. It was a time to rest a little. It was nice to have a fun event so close to home without driving all night to get somewhere. Thanks again.

Thanks to Ryan, Greg, Daryl, John, Roger and anyone I missed for the help on the Dual Sport event. Thanks to all who chose to ride this event, this will help spread some money into the local economy, great PR for the club. My thanks also to the many club members over the last three years that have made my job as President go smoothly. Thanks again to the riders that understand and support the efforts of these clubs that host events, special thanks to the FCR membership and their families that put up with our motorcycling habits. See ya next spring.....1st Enduro of the year late March
