Captains Quarters Happy Thanksgiving everybody, I know it’s an early salutation but we won’t have another issue available until the first week of December. I would ask that you all take the time to spend with family and friends and to be very thankful for all that we have. I know the recent weeks have been full of speculation, accusations, confrontations and hope for some as we work our way through this crazy presidential election. Unfortunately they sometimes forget about “We the People” and go off on tangents of their own. My prayer is for this country to remain strong and united no matter the outcome and that our leaders would take the same actions in hopes for a secure future for generations to come. Before we go any further I would ask all the local motocross racers, especially the youth classes to notice the DER Hare Scramble ad to the left of this article. Your MX season is about done here and the sponsoring club has put out a challenge to come see who is the fastest, motocross or hare scramble racers? They’re also offering up some free tires to sweeten the deal. So if you have the weekend open, check out the DER to see whose boss. I also want to send best wishes to all who will be traveling to Florida to compete at the Mini O’s. Have a safe trip, do your best and be happy no matter how you finish. You are a champion for going and remember that everything you do should be a learning experience. Next, I want to welcome any new readers who may be seeing us for the first time. Please enjoy our pages and our hopes are that you find something you enjoy or that is useful in your off road and snowmobiling adventures. Our content this month is a mixed bag of local racing and off road riding information with a little bit of snowmobile thrown in for good measure. Let’s hope for the last group that we get more than a mixed bag of precipitation this winter. We dirt bikers don’t like the white stuff a whole lot but early indicators are calling for it to be very cold here in the Northeast with plenty of winter weather around. Thank goodness we can travel south for the season to keep the wheels rolling. Also know that you can like and share us on Facebook, instagram and twitter and we thank you for reading and for all of your kind messages and support that we do get throughout the month. We’ll see you at an event soon and please remember to stay caught up between issues online at: www.brappmag.com B

Trail Riders club, along with other volunteers to organize Fall clean To Pre-Register or get morethe details go to: go.geisinger.org/cmnevents up on the Western Reserve near the popular Whaleback. More than www. .com two dozen enthusiastic participants listened to Dave as he expressed his overwhelming gratitude for the support of those in attendance, who volunteered their time to help make AOAA one of the top off-road destinations in the country. The 2016 Spring clean up had over 100 volunteers.
After briefing the group about the day’s planned event, Dave and the volunteers departed the community event pavilion and headed out to begin what quickly became evident as an act of incredible stewardship, by people wanting to take ownership in preserving and promoting what is quickly becoming the “go to” venue in the country for off-roading. The volunteers hailed from as far away as New Jersey, Maryland and other destinations, some traveling 3 and 4 hours just to honor their commitment to the day’s clean up. Bob from Bucks County, PA, who volunteers for other activities at the AOAA, said that he is an annual pass holder that frequents the park, and wanted to give something back because his membership fees paid for themselves in just four visits, and this was his way of showing his appreciation for AOAA’s reasonable prices for an awesome place to ride.

Other volunteers shared similar stories believing that the family oriented atmosphere in such a beautiful place that cannot be matched, and is well worth the efforts volunteering to be part of the AOAA’s growth. Dave Porzi reinforces these sentiments by emphasizing the park’s commitment to making the AOAA safe, clean and fun for all users. It’s noteworthy to mention that staff from the neighboring Reading Anthracite Company (RAC) were available to lend a hand in the clean up. The AOAA and RAC clearly demonstrate a working partnership in their efforts to put Pennsylvania’s Anthracite Region on the map. Is this a sign of bigger things to come? I don’t know, but it seems promising, only time will tell! The clean up ended with lunch provided by the AOAA and a group ride led by the ATR! B

and new pDrive ™ drive pulley to deliver incredibly responsive and agile sleds. It’s what you come up with when you’re creating what’s next.
We snowmobilers are driven and excited by what’s ahead. That next stretch of impossibly winding trail. The next zone we’ve never dropped into. The next vista that takes our breath away. The next epic trip with our buddies that we’ll talk about all year. Maybe it’s because we spend so much time looking forward to the snow falling. Whatever it is, snowmobilers never stop pushing.
MORE POWERFUL AND RESPONSIVE
At BRP, we too are always looking ahead, pushing ourselves to take your snowmobiling experience to another level. Faster straights, easier sidehills, more comfortable tours. Our passion for creating what’s next has reshaped the industry with the REV platform, E-TEC® engines, ACE™ engines with iTC,™ rMotion™ and tMotion™ rear suspensions, Pilot™ TS adjustable skis, LinQ™ cargo system and so much more.
There’s 165 horsepower, and thanks to freer breathing and an improved E-TEC injection system – including new booster injectors at the intake – it’s 30% quicker to respond. Power comes instantly and forcefully, but is easily modulated... you lift or plant the skis at will.
Efficiency has always been core to the E-TEC equation, and we really took it to the next level with the 850 E-TEC: you can now cover 40% more distance per liter of oil. Many riders will not have to add oil during a season. And even with the gains in power, torque and response, fuel efficiency remains impressive, at up to 19 mpg (12.3 L/100 km).

4th Annual Kevin Crine Memorial Race Mama Pro Am Budds Creek MX Park
Kevin Crines 2005 Honda was on display at Budds Creek
Sept. 24-25, 2016
The last weekend in September took us to one of my favorite races of the year to date. It was a bittersweet event honoring the life of a local pro racer who left this life way too soon. It was also a feel good tribute to a great man who has left a great legacy on the local sport of motocross racing. I give props to the entire Crine family and all the sponsors who made this event a success. I honor and respect the family for keeping Kevin’s legacy alive but also feel sorrow as they in some way have to relive the loss of a son, a husband, a father a brother. A man who touched all he came in contact with while here with us and even as he is with his eternal Father in Heaven. The weekend kicked off on Friday morning with a free riding clinic to the riders of MAMA hosted and sponsored by Traders MX Racing. Close to 80 riders got tips from pros both past and present and a great learning experience was had by all. Then Friday afternoon Jonathan Beasley offered a practice day on the Budds Creek course to finish out the day.
John Crine awards the Dash for Cash participants
Saturday morning rolled around to a packed house and a full day of racing for the Mid Atlantic Motocross Association or MAMA as they are better known. This group has been hosting amateur racing for over 40 years in the Mid-Atlantic region and they remain a local favorite. Saturday evening after the racing is when the real festivities began. The Crine Family got to share their memories and thanks with the crowd before the awards ceremony for the Dash for Cash race. Again Traders stepped up along with all of the families of MAMA to host a huge meal in Kevin’s honor. Hundreds of folks participated while
watching old racing videos of Kevin and previous memorial races, listened to entertainment from MX 51, a local rock band with roots from MAMA and just spent time together as one huge family celebrating Kevin’s life and the sport that we all love so much. Sunday we awoke to another gorgeous day. A memorial lap was led by an old team mate of Kevin’s, Ty Wallace. Ty has come out every year to help support this event and a huge crowd took to the track in Kevin’s honor. After that the Pro Am racing started along with an entire line up of classes. The day went off without a hitch and in the end it would be home town racer and Traders Racing fast guy Tony Archer sweeping all four expert motos. Thanks to all involved and thanks to Kevin Crine for being the man he was both while he was with us and for continuing to make an impact even after he is gone. Check out some pics and results here then head over to: www.brappmag.com to see thousands more images and a couple of videos from the weekend’s events. B

motorcycle repair assistance offered by Solid Performance, + free race entry for all females, courtesy of my good friend and nice guy “Irish Hammer” at Eastern Medical Gas. The Jr Enduro Series also sponsored a FREE raffle to any Moonshine adult newbies that included a Rekluse Clutch, a Factory Connection Revalve, a $400 Boyesen Cert and a $250 rafting cert to nearby Adventure Sports. Couple all that with a Kids Sprint Jr Enduro on Sat that was meticulously run by the Mackniks with two kids endurocross sections, a closed course adult event on Sunday (no head/tail light, license, registration nor insurance required) and no time keeping, add great food vendors and you get the perfect storm. Oh yeah, pitting out of a WWII air strip just added to the coolness. But the moonshine wasn’t all about the clubs hard work, it’s a lot about the trails and how awesome they are. There were six sections for the day, with an average length of six miles each plus two cut offs for the older - less experienced. As a bottom dwelling AA myself, I found it to be enough mileage for me to leave fulfilled; conversely, a good friend of mine made it his first enduro back since a knee replacement and with the rider cutoffs (no pun intended) he finished with a smile too. Moonshine offers a nice mix of wheel banging rocks mixed with flowing dirt and even some berms! The race consisted of predominantly established trail but I wouldn’t say it was hammered, in fact, the used trail had a nice useable rut to keep the bike in the grove. Gas trucks were provided and spectating was available. Plenty of time was given to riders to transfer from test section to test section. Results unofficial at this time, but Jarret Mohn edged out Mike Lafferty for the overall, followed by Thorn Devlin. Next year if you can make the Moonshine enduro you won’t be disappointed. All clubs should take a good look at the recipe dished out by these fine PA rock hounds at VFTR and HMDR, because PA events rarely get turnouts like this and 450 + riders says a lot about what people want.

Registration, Titling and Insuring Your ATV Who must register and title?
All ATVs in Pennsylvania, except ATVs used solely for business or agricultural purposes, need to be registered and titled with DCNR. ATVs used in Pennsylvania must be registered and titled with DCNR’s Snowmobile/ATV Section. The ATV registration and titling fees are NOT user fees for the privilege of using trails on state-owned land. The fees provide funding to administer the program, maintain trails in DCNR-managed parks and forests, and provide grants to profit and non-profit organizations for developing additional riding opportunities.
Two Types of Registrations Apply: • Registration
For ATVS used anywhere off of your own property or property leased by you, such as designated State Forest trails. $20 fee every two years
• Limited Registration
For ATVs used solely on your own land or land leased by you. Free registration No expiration, unless ownership of vehicle changes.
Plates and Decals
An ATV owner will be issued a registration plate for the vehicle. An expiration sticker to be affixed to the plate will be issued for standard registrations.
If you are using your ATV solely on land owned or leased by you, you are not required to get liability insurance. All other riders must carry liability insurance. Proof of that insurance must be carried with you when you ride. There are no minimum requirements or coverage standards established by DCNR or the Snowmobile/ATV Law for the liability insurance.

Winter Is Back… From the: www.farmersalmanac.com While last winter was a reprieve from shoveling and high fuel bills, the party is over. According to the 2017 Farmers’ Almanac, “winter is back!” The 2017 Farmers’ Almanac, which hit store shelves everywhere on August 15, 2016, forewarns that exceptionally cold, if not downright frigid weather will predominate over parts of the Northern Plains, Great Lakes, Midwest, Ohio Valley, the Middle Atlantic, Northeast, and New England this winter. The Farmers’ Almanac’s long-range weather predictions also suggest shots of very cold weather will periodically reach as far south as Florida and the Gulf Coast. In contrast, milder-than-normal temperatures will prevail over the Western States. NOVEMBRRRRR? While winter officially starts on December 21, 2016, the Farmers’ Almanac predictions point to some snow and cold conditions in mid-November in the Northeast, Great Lakes, and Midwest. However, the good news is that the frigidly cold temperatures really won’t take hold until much later in the season. DOWNRIGHT FRIGID FEBRUARY The Farmers’ Almanac, which breaks the country into 7 zones, and offers predictions for three-day intervals, forewarns of a mixed bag of wintry weather for both December and January. But it’s really February when the frigid temperatures take hold (northern tier states could see ambient air temperatures as low as 40 degrees below zero!). This is the month you want to make sure your heat works, your long johns are washed, and your slippers are nearby. WHAT ABOUT SNOW? Get the snow blowers ready in the East and umbrellas in the West! An active storm track will deliver above-normal precipitation to the Southeast, Northeast and New England states throughout most of the winter, especially February (see above!). In addition, another active storm track from the Pacific will deliver a dose of above-normal precipitation across the Western States. Meanwhile, near or below-normal precipitation will cover the nation’s midsection. (Find out how much snow is forecast for your region in 2017 Farmers’ Almanac.) SNOWMOBILERS REJOICE! Farmers’ Almanac is also red-flagging February 16-19, when a small, but intense storm develops near the Virginia Capes and delivers a heavy snowstorm with strong winds for parts of the Tennessee Valley, through western North Carolina, the Virginias, Maryland, and Delaware northeast into southern New England – some locations could receive 1 to 2 feet of accumulation!
Hyner Mountain Snowmobile Club Hello from Hyner Mountain. We wanted to let everyone know what has been happening up on the mountain. Well, first of all with us being deep into the fall season, the summers’ heat is finally gone! The leaves, especially up in the north central counties of Pennsylvania, are in full color and beginning to fall. The archery deer season is in full swing with the “rut” right around the corner, and all of the small game seasons are underway. One real testimony that fall is well underway up around our snowmobile club or “lodge” as we affectionately call it, are the sounds and smells. This being the sounds of chain saws running, with fire wood being cut; and, the smell of wood smoke in the air from cabin wood burners and fireplaces. Well, if you put all of the above together, it can only mean one thing…..winter is fast approaching! For us at the lodge, that means a new snowmobile season! Hey, as you are reading this, the start of the new season is only a few short weeks away! Now all we have to do is to wait and see what “Mother Nature” has in store for us this year; she was not very kind last year! Due to last winter (or lack thereof), we at Hyner Mt. will be more than ready this winter if and when the snow flies. That said if you are riding this winter and you find yourself up around the lodge and there are sleds in the lot and smoke coming from the chimney, stop in and say hey. We always welcome guests and visitors. Come in and get warmed up, have a hot cup of coffee, and just maybe we’ll talk snowmobiling while showing you around the place. Who knows, you may like it enough to think about joining. We do presently have memberships available. Well that’s about all for now. Talk to ya again. B THINK SNOW! Dan Casey

COOPER COMMANDS KROC 2016 By Scott Lukaitis
2016 marked the 40th anniversary of the Kawasaki Race of Champions at Old Bridge Township’s Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. Originally sponsored by a local country club, Kawasaki and the local Kawasaki dealers came in as the title sponsor in the early days of the event and over the last 40 years the who’s who of American Motocross came to NJ each fall to compete. Mother Nature has not been Nick Romano was a kind to the event the last double class winner at KROC 2016 taking couple of years. 2014 had victories in both the torrential rains on Saturday 85cc 9-11 & Junior Mini classes. morning, 2015 was delayed because of the threat of a hurricane and 2016 suffered from Mother Nature’s wrath again. Despite the drought conditions in the Northeast, KROC weekend was when it finally decided to rain. But motocrossers are a hearty breed and the race went on anyway. Friday’s constant mist lead for interesting conditions but the competition was nothing short of exceptional. Only Barry Carsten, Nick Romano, and Daniel Congdon were multiple class winners. By the time Sunday’s feature motos came along the track was typical KROC, rough, rutted and technical. Yamaha mounted Justin Cooper was the top rider taking 3 out of 4 motos and the overall in both the 250 and 450 Pro classes. Cooper was followed by Husqvarna mounted Bobby Piazza, the other rider to win a moto, in second and Kawasaki mounted Nick Gaines in third in the 250 Pro Class and Yamaha duo Brandon Hartranft and Joshua Clark in second and third in the 450 class. KROC 2016 was also part of the 2016 WMX Championship series and the ladies didn’t disappoint with excellent racing action. Kaitlyn Morrow and Mackenzie Tricker split moto wins with the overall going to Morrow. Canadian Eve Brodeur rounded out the podium. KROC Sunday also features 4 special single moto events. The Fast Fifties was won by Cobra mounted Canyon Richards, the 65cc Kessler Cup was won by KTM rider Tyler Devers, the 85cc Top Gun Shootout was won by KTM rider Gavin Towers and Jake Pinhancos won the Ironman Classic and the new Kawasaki KX250F that went along with the win. Justin Cooper was the man at KROC 2016 winning both overalls in Sunday’s racing action.
Kaitlyn Morrow made the trip from Texas and went home with the WMX overall win.
Mark you calendars now for the 41st annual KROC next October and hopefully Mother Nature will comply and bring the sun. See you there. B

Pagoda MC - Big Bucks Jim Munch Memorial Race 2016
Oct. 9, 2016
The Path of the Jim Munch Memorial Race By: Randy Kastle I actually went to high school with Jim but we really weren’t even friends at that time in our lives. Until one day at a private practice track in Perkiomenville PA where we met and realized both of our kids (Richie and James) were into motocross. Soon we became pretty close going to races together and working on bikes during the week. As time went on Jim and James both joined Pagoda and our friendship became even stronger. In 2002 I was racing at Atco and was hurt fairly badly and that turned out being a life changing event for me personally. Jim lived very close to me so he was always stopping by helping out and talking moto. You have a lot of time on your hands when you spend months in a hospital bed in your living room. That night at Atco I screwed up a rhythm section while leading a Vet C race. The race wasn’t really significant in this story but it was that night because I got to know Kevin Kolb better too…. much better.
Cooper makes the pass on Peters in Open A racing action
He ended up taking my son and following the ambulance to the local hospital. I’ll never forget under pain medication I “deputized” Kevin to make decisions on my leg, ha ha. None the less after my leg healed up I started working for the company where both Kevin and Jim worked.That is when the moto/work obsession started between us. Jim and I both worked on the Pagoda track, went to D6, AMA and promoter meetings as we started to run the race program at the club. Jim, Kevin and I worked at the club, raced, worked for work, and had a blast going to nationals. We definitely had our ups and downs but we were the best moto pals you could ask for. We eventually stopped working at our jobs together and went our separate ways, but moto was still a link between us. Jim started his own business and he and I had a falling out that pretty much took us all the way down to merely saying hi in passing. Kevin and Jim stayed great friends. I got a call from Kevin one morning telling me Jim wasn’t in good health; I could only say I didn’t even know he was ill. Tragically the next call came in saying Jim was gone….. Regardless that Jim and I hadn’t been on good terms the news bothered me greatly. At the funeral we all met again with some others we had as mutual friends. To my amazement Jim’s life had changed drastically since we spoke as friends. It turns out Jim’s focus had turned from moto to a life of finding God. At the funeral Kevin and I spoke to a bunch of old acquaintances, one of which being Joe. The three of us started talking and decided to meet weekly trying to figure out “life”. We met and our group grew a bit and it ended up becoming more of a bible study. We still meet to this day and in one of our meetings it came to us that the only way to say Thank you to our friend Jim was to be sure the riders of District 6 knew how hard he worked at Pagoda and on moto issues for the good of our sport. Many didn’t know Jim but those that did know how passionate he was about Pagoda and motocross racing in general. Thank you Jim for your friendship and all your hard work just to make sure people had a great time riding their dirt bikes. And so in your memory Kevin and I came up with a day to recognize you in moto with, The Jim Munch Memorial Race at Pagoda Motorcycle Club. Rest easy my friend until we meet again. B

The RORR Dual Sport Reading Off Road Riders - Pine Grove, PA. - October 9, 2016 - By Chris Borger
The Mighty RORR Dual Sport was held Sunday, October 9th at Pine Grove, PA. The weather conditions were absolutely perfect this year, with clear skies and temps in the low 60’s all day. Trail conditions were outstanding throughout the entire course, groomed out nicely for the event. The event begins with the traditional RORR breakfast at the North End Fire Company’s pavilion and camping area. The crew from North End are great hosts and put a huge effort into this event. They provide very good meals, and great staging and camping areas for the event. The sign-up at RORR is quick and easy. They have a great team of friendly folks and they are very well organized. Rob Feldman from the Rausch Creek club conducted the riders meeting, and most all of the riders were out on the course by 9:AM. This was RORR’s 6th year at Pine Grove, and their partnership with the North End Fire Company and the town of Pine Grove has worked out well. This year’s course had some new routes and some new sections of trail. The 45 mile morning loop begins with a quick road course over to the Rausch Creek areas, where the club set up an awesome route with 7 A/B options. The trails at Rausch Creek were in prime riding condition, with miles of single track action, hill climbs, two-track ATV trail, and some neat elevation changes, with plenty of central PA rocks. The coal based loam soil was fantastic throughout the entire course with a perfect consistency for hooking up and laying down the power. The Finger Hills hill climb and the Tower City Mine Trail are always a couple of favorites in this loop. Overall, the Rausch Creek Club trail system was awesome, and their club’s support of this event is greatly appreciated by all. Their trails are well managed and fun to ride. The lunch and gas stop were located back at camp, where the North End crew served up huge double pulled pork sandwiches, a pile of beans and coleslaw, apples, and drinks. RORR has a tradition of feeding you well at their events, and this year was no exception. The second loop of the day began after lunch. Most riders were out on the course by 1PM. The loop began with another quick road course, over to the Black Woods area. This area had some of the best trail in the event. The club really went all out on preparation and course layout on this loop. There were 5 A/B options in the afternoon route, with fabulous single track action. The trail had many elevation changes, stream crossings, rolling hills with bermed turns

Riders on the trail cut in, some deep puddles along the way, and smooth loamy action where you could really gas it. The later options were challenging technical rocky sections, well laid out and very fun to ride, especially if you like rocks. The main course back to Pine Grove was lots of fun as well, where you could really rip down the open trail sections. RORR threw in a final option at the end, a short sweet trail of black mud and roots over anthill type terrain. With options, the total course ran 93 miles. Comprehensively, this course had it all, the very best of central PA. The trails were laid out perfect and were very well marked. The event route sheet was spot on accurate. RORR had dozens of patrol riders out all day in every area of the event. They put a huge effort into this event, and the results were awesome. The RORR Dual Sport seems to get better every year. Their partnership with the North End Fire Company, Rausch Creek Trail Riders Club, and private land owners has made this one of the best Dual Sport events in the east coast region. A very special Thank You to the Reading Off Road Riders Club and their members for another great Dual Sport event this year, and to their partners the North End Fire Company, the Rausch Creek Trail Riders Club, the private land owners, and club sponsor Matto Cycle. See more at: www.rorr.org **Please note that this event is held on private property and there is no riding or trespassing after the event.

Sometimes I to feel that way also. He is Holy and good, and we need more of that down here too. Yet if he were to fix it all he’d have to fix me too and if I was to never hurt anyone again he would have to fix me completely and instantly. “not sure that wouldn’t hurt”. Lol. No really my point is truley many ill’s in this world can be traced back to someone being self centered. Not sure where God would have to draw the line and stop the self centeredness. Would he have to take away free will making us programmed robots or maybe he would eliminate people, which hurtful people would he kill, all of them or just the rapist and murders? You see God’s “MO” is to be good and patient not quick to wrath. So he waits, not sure I always like what I see around me but I still believe in Matt. 6: when Jesus said, “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these thing will be added to you”. So rather than seek me, I seek him, he takes care of me. This would help solve lots of the hurtful actions in this world.
There is much to be said race fans about this world. Many people think that God should just fix it all.

The 6th annual Bras for A Cause raised over $3,300.00 in support of the PA Breast Cancer Coalition. The PA Breast Cancer Coalition represents, supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania through educational programming, legislative advocacy and breast cancer research grants. Volunteers from the PABCC enjoy coming to the Bras for a Cause event each year to answer questions and meet the riders. The action took place at the Lost Trails ATV Adventure Park in Dunmore, PA on Saturday September 10, 2016. The day began early with anxious riders geared up and ready to go! The main attraction for Saturday was focused around finding bright pink bras hidden throughout the trails. If you were lucky enough to find a hidden bra you could have won a helmet camera, a big screen television, riding gear, an over night stay at the Sleep Inn or a year membership to the New Lost Trails ATV Park! The event ended Saturday night with a splash for the Lost Trails night ride. The night ride attracted over 130 riders filled with excitement for a three-hour adventure. The night ride consisted of varied terrain such as rock crawls, railroad bed, winding trails, hills, mud, and historical tunnel and the best part of all was when the group made huge waves traveling down a hill in the play area and hammering the water.
