How many of you would be interested in a little mini-spode fest in the upstate NY area? Im thinking about possibly the Modena area, although Im open to just about anyplace within a 4 hour drive of the Island.

Sounds good to me

I’d love to. I was going to put something together but have been too busy. There is a MX track for rent in Montrose,PA that is very nice. http://www.mx573.com/ Small parts store, camping, pond, watering system. I don’t think there are trails to ride on though. It would be a great place to hold something. Maybe we could work out a deal with the owner. I talk to him next time I’m there.

There are suppose to be some trail system near Deposit,NY but I lost the phone number that Silver Bullet posted in a thread last year. Silver Bullet, you out there???

Lets get this rolling…:)

I would definately be into a NY Spodefest! Modena could be cool or perhaps the track RM Guy mentioned. It would have to be a fairly easy road trip so I could get up and back the same day. I'd be into just about anything to get together. RM Guy- I had that phone number I sent you but I will have to try to find it again. I think I got it from one of my NETRA newsletters. I will try to hunt it down again. Keep me up to date. Wayne we still gotta get to the track together. Maybe week after next? I'll let you know.

I found the number

I think the original thread was deleted but I actually found a printout of it in my briefcase (don’t ask:eek: ). I haven’t called yet but the guy’s name is Eric Krobath and the numbers is (516)889-1375

Count us in for a NY spodefest, but there'd better be trails to ride on! Everyone always laughs at me if I ride the MX track with barkbusters and a headlight...:confused:

Sounds great! I will do trails or track, just let me know
and I'll bring some friends too. It would be great
to meet everyone!

Hey Lori, if I can ride in the woods with wide handle bars then you can ride on a track. Besides I have bark busters on my bike. They add to the spode effect.

Gotta have my woods!

It just wouldn't be a spodefest without seeing someone... RM_guy... tag a tree at speed. :p

I've heard of a place near Albany that has a SX track, old school MX track and an 8 mile enduro/hare scramble trail. If anyone is interested, I could find out some more information.

Modena, NY?

From the looks of everyone here, I would think that Modena, NY, http://www.atvnewyork.com/
would be the choice spot to accomodate us all. Theres a little of everything, so it should suit us. They also hosted a HS in April. Its about 125 miles from Binghamton, around 75 from Albany, Not too far from Jersey, and around 110 from here. Let me know what you all think?!

I think we could drive 4 hours for a NY Spodefest! Sounds like a good location, with electric hookup for trailers and on-site showers.
Now, the next big question: When?

July looks doable for me. I will probably not stay overnight, just get there early and leave late.

Is anyone a club member for this place in Modena?. It looks like a good place but I wonder how crowded it gets. Maybe we can make it a week day and miss any crowds. Any thoughts?

I noticed there sound restrictions of 65dB at 200 feet. Does anyone know if stock MX bikes will meet this?

Papakeith, you’d better be there. You’re the #1 DRN support team member :)
