Napa BMX Practice

I went out to Wednesday's practice at the NAPA track on May 13, 2009. There where a lot of riders for that practice. The track is really long and fast and I didn't crash. That was one of my main goals for my first practice on the new NAPA track, not to crash. I was pretty tired once I made it around the track. Since I'm from the old school of BMX I guess that was expected. I was looking at the young guys doing jumps over the expert section and was wondering if I could jump those jumps. The next time I go to NAPA I will take a closer look at the expert section of that track. I really would like to do one of those jumps but I'm not to sure if I will. But watching those kids jump to me it looks so easy but it does look high and a little far.

May 11 Meeting

When I went to the meeting on May 11, 2009. They put me on the end of the calender for that meeting. When they got around to me it was 11pm at night. So once I passed out my proposal in written form they decided that they wanted me to come back to the next meeting on June 29, 2009 and present first. So of course I agreed with them since I was tired also. So we still haven't had a chance to present the proposal yet but things seem to be looking good. But that's hard to tell when dealing with the establishment. We will just have to wait until June 29, 2009 to see what they think of the proposal. So stay tuned for a update at that time and date on BMX in Berkeley, CA.

So keep up with this blog and add any information that you might have to help in getting a OK with the city for the BMX park.
