When and where is the banquet?
Any dates released for 2003 season?

Anaheim I pix....
I haven't seen the RMEC schedule, but it's usually published after the banquet.
I think the banquet is sometime this month but I'm not sure.
You can find most of the first few RMEC/TSCEC co-sanctioned races on the TSCEC site
at www.tscec.org The first is Caprock Canyon on 3/23 (PHX sounds like the first
race) and Lone Star follows on 4/6. Rumor has it there's no "Last Chance" this year.
David, best of luck in your first enduro... Phoenix can be a butt kicker. Ride to finish.

The reworked RMEC website had the tentative schedule posted for a couple of days, but it was hidden near the membership field. They've since pasted a different pop-up over it, don't know if they don't want anyone seeing it before the banquet,which is this Saturday.
True enough, missing from the races for this year are: Nebraska, Last Chance, Peetz, Montrose-still. Additions are:
Calamity! Ye-ah!, Del Norte National, Elk Mountain, WY(pretty much due north of Calamity). Also scheduled are the Texas races, Kachina, Jumping Cow, Inyan Kara, Mile High. There was mention of an ISDE qualifier-type event, TBA.
First impressions are mixed feelings, will be missing some great events while welcoming others.

About the two-day event, I'd heard that the bunch at Inyan Kara were thinking about
doing something along these lines for a couple of years. Depending on when it happens,
I may try that one too. Some of the best times I've had were at qualifiers.
Given the amount of snow we're getting (or not getting), I wouldn't count on Calamity... Hopefully, I'm wrong.

I hope you're wrong too on Calamity, it's high time the multi-time enduro of the year came back. Haven't they been getting a bunch of snow in the Rabbit Ears Pass, Steamboat, Routt Forest area?

My suggestion for your first enduro is to 1) find a non-time keeping event or 2) check out the A, B, or C riders on your minute with time keeping equiptment. Introduce yourself and ask if they wouldn't mind if you hang out behind them. Many may reply with something to the effect of "...sure, if you can keep up!" Otherwise, just go out and enjoy the one-directional trail ride. That's pretty much what I do

I'm also wanting to try an enduro, maybe we can get a group together to go over timing and beer . Kindof a drunk workshop, I vote for Keener as workshop leader.

I'll be happy to answer any questions if I can.
IMHO, timekeeping events are what made enduros for me. I like the challenge of trying
to out-think the promoters while also trying to ride fast. I'm better at the former and
suck at the latter.
