May 2012 Upcoming Events: Trial & Relocated HS

May 13th is Round 2 of the A&E Racing & Marine Provincial Trials A new location on Lee Fryberger's private land near Warlow, AB (Brooks area).  Don't forget it's Mother's Day, so make sure you buy your gifts and then head on out for a few loops around 8-10 sections in the beautiful valleys/prairies of Wardlow.   Preregistration is OPEN at www.secondgearclub.com/events


Directions from Calgary: Hwy#1 East, south of Bassano turn East onto Sec#550, continue East through 4-way at Rosemany.  Cross over hwy #36, continuing east on pavement, which turns to gravel.  Turn left (north) at T-intersection at hwy #876.  Cross Steveville Bridge on the Red Deer River.  Turn right (east) approximately 500m past bridge on gravel (you will immediately cross small green bridge over creek and climb out of valley).  Turn approx 1.5 miles, turn right at RIST crossroads (small sign says TAQA NORTH 11-13-21-12w4).  Travel approx 5 miles until you hit valley floor (pink ribbon will direct you to staging area).

May 26-27 Hare Scramble TENTATIVELY RELOCATED to Whispering Pines (Waiparous).  Sorry for the changes but for all the dryness we had in Lethbridge, there is excess snow in Invermere that has caused grief with setup and approval.  Therefore, we are hoping to swap the two events but we are at the mercy of the Forestry to approve.  Now it is a time crunch and there is a crew out GPSing the course as I send this email.  We have to get all the info to the SRD by Friday with hopes we can finalize the event.  Therefore, get your camping units ready and wait for update.
