NOVEMBER 9, 2012 Update Blast... October has provided us with an assortment of weather from unseasonably mild to considerably wet and windy at times. The Gopher Dunes '2012 CMRC Sandstorm Finale' unfolded on October 14 and although attendance was lower than expected, it turned out to be an amazing day with temperatures reaching well into the 20's. The highlight attraction for the day was the Red Bull 'best whip contest' which attracted some serious and daring contenders. The best whip winner was Jeremy Medaglia who received the biggest round of applause from the spectators! The Vintage Show & Shine & Racing proved to be a successful nostalgic event attracting many participants and drawing lots of attention. Our local member, Ken Gilmour pulled off 1st. place in both the Vintage and the Post Vintage classes while our 'ol favourite Helmut Clasen was awarded the 'Hard Core' award as the racer with the highest number combination, that is, age of bike + age of racer! Kudo's to you Helmut, our well-seasoned enthusiast! And a BIG thank you to Ann & Ron Harten for making the Vintage Event happen.
