This is a discussion on Mini fmx contest [In Georgia] :: within the Mini Bike Events forums, part of the Event Forums category; Delete please...
There will be a entry fee of $40 for each rider.Depending on the amount of riders entering there will be trophies handed out.
Sounds like a really great time. I really need to head down there soon! Will there be big bike fmx practice the same weekend?

I have some more info for those of you interested.The day/date has been chosen no specific time yet.I am pretty sure we will be aloud to have a warm-up session earlier than the actual event itself.The owner of D-town is really cool and is ok with the idea of everything.As of now the day will be Saturday May 23,2009 That following Sunday the 24th is a poker run at the trails so it will be too busy for hem that day.
As far as the prizes go there will only be a 1st and 2nd place trophy.Everyone else respectfully will go home empty handed but with remembrance of a good time.This is my first ever attempt at an event period so try and go easy on me.I am not to sure on the judges I know it will be possibly 3 if not more? nothing on that yet.I personally will most likely be one of them if I can not get my bike in time.
I'll be sure to keep everyone posted on any info/news.
We have decided to allow the crowd be the judges.That seemed to be the best idea and easiest route.Also the owner informed me they will allow us to use the PA system as well.
Is anyone interested in this at all?.I know it is not racing but c'mon!
i wish i lived closer sounds fun

Mini Fmx Decoration Day Contest [Decoration Day is Memorial Day's original name]
your from Augusta or Savannah? Any riders coming from your side of GA? Its going to be tough getting a decent entry list of riders. I try to make any mini related event in GA just to show support, somebody has to. Its hard getting people to the track for a race, only thing I havent tried to get people more intrigued to come to the mini races is get some good video. I even put up a add on craigslist when I rented the BMX track converted to mini moto, and suprisingly I picked up a few local riders. Might try that and see if you can contact FMX east, they might have pitbikes, or know people with them. Word of mouth is best to get people out. I'll do what I can do on my side of town. Wouldnt hurt to make a flyer and post it at your local cycle shop.
wish it was closer i would come hope it turns out good for you and you get some riders . how big is the gap's an is it just a best trick type thing or timed runs
the gaps right now are set at 40' and 60'. We were hitting the 40'. The owner prob doesnt mind us shifting them however we want, they move them around alot. They have 3 huge ramps, and you got two huge landings, so its a two jump pass. There are some pics in one the d-town thread.
dont know about the best trick or timed thing. James22 will have to answer that.
see ya at the 2upTomahawk race, and come to think of it that track is about identical to d-towns SX track.

Anyone help you can bring please do,regardless of what it may be! thanks.

This event may actually be put off until the summer.The next week or so will tell if the event can go down or not.
