rechecking, I see some have been moved and races have been added.
I'd say go with the dates on the RMEC website.
Sorry for the confusion.
PS, which races are you thinking about going to?

The ones down in Texas are great!!! I'm the membership officer for the RMEC so if you have other questions let me know.

I'd recommend for first-timers. The two races in Texas are two of my favorites
and are great first time events. Unfortunately, the best first timer event (Last
Chance) isn't on the schedule for this year.
I've heard that Jumping Cow is a great event, but like you said, is late in the year.

For an early season group ride (Feb., March, April) how about the Pueblo area? I have never been there myself, but I hear there are many trails and tracks. Sounds like there may be something there for everyone. Any thoughts from those who have been there?

The area used to be a prime wintertime place to practice. In the last 10 years or so, it's turned into the local dumpground. There's broken glass, shot-up washing machines, tires, the occasional flipped car (no joke) and people of all speeds, abilities and mental capacity going in ever direction possible. There are a couple of small canyons that are fun to run, but that's about it. There used to be a semi-enduro trail laid out that they used for the HS they ran down there a couple times. Last time I ran that trail, there were a couple washing machine and a few tires thrown into some gullies.
I know some people like riding there, but it's not for me. It's a shame that it's been so abused as it once was a nice place to ride. You should go sometime and see for yourself. I'd suggest a warm sunny Sunday in April.

the fact that we were glad we didn't buy a new 450 this year. I have no doubt you'll
get yours tuned up.
As far as Texas, yea, I'm going to Turkey and Kalgary for sure. I might even do
Kachina this year. There isn't going to be any water in the local lakes so I
might as well race a little!
BTW, send me your email address... I've got a little list that I send notices to
when we're all heading out the track. Saturday was a hoot. Perfect weather
albeit a bit crowded. Got in around 40 miles.
