CANEY CREEK ENDURO - Sept 27, 2015

The 2015 Trail Riders of Houston Caney Creek Enduro was a success.  Thanks to Cycle Shack North and Wild West Motoplex for the event sponsorship.  TRH cannot run this huge event without their help, so please go by to visit their shops soon, buy something, and tell them THANK YOU for the support!  We welcomed over 200 Texas State Championship Enduro Circuit and local riders to the trails of the Sam Houston National Forest.  Once again, with the enormous support of the NWISD school board, we staged the event parking, sign-up, and start at the New Waverly High School football stadium.  With the help of the Walker County Sheriffs Department and Texas Dept of Transportation, we transferred the riders safely down FM 1375 and out to the trails.  The trail conditions were very dusty, but all of the hard work from TRH, Old Dudes of Dirt Bikes, and the Forest Service created a very clean and safe trail for the riders to compete.  Even though we had a scoring issue that prevented race day trophy presentation, the riders were happy overall.  When we spend the energy to promote an epic event like Caney Creek, it validates our effort when the riders and supporters are satisfied with the experience.

I cannot express how much I appreciate the support from TRH members to make this legendary Enduro run so smoothly.  If you sat on a road crossing ensuring the riders were safe, thank you.  If you worked all day on a checkpoint to make sure the riders were scored properly, thank you.  If you rode sweep for over 60 miles to ensure all riders were assisted and supported if in need, thank you.  Sign-up and scoring, sound test, and gas trailer transport are a few other vital parts of the event that need to be accomplished flawlessly.  I hope that everyone gets the point that this event has numerous single points of failure and TRH always pulls together to make sure it works.  I'm still gathering all of the names of workers, but the list that I do has over 100 people that helped run the event.  That is impressive and as TRH members, we can be very proud of ourselves.





FINAL WORDS:


 The TRH Board is still engaged in a two pronged issue:  the search for quality properties to ride and potentially lease similar to the Skull Creek lease, and the ability to obtain a General Liability policy for the lease property.  This is not to be confused with event insurance.  TRH is still insured on all of our events.  We had the 1100 as a lease property, but had to cease our riding activities as we search for adequate and affordable insurance.  Once we obtain GL insurance, we could potentially regain the use of the 1100 for club members.  This is a time consuming task, but one that we are working on.
For 2016, our plan is to continue having fun days and TRH competitive events at locations like Brunes Mill, Sterling Ranch, Rio Bravo and the Sam Houston National Forest.  All is not lost, TRH existed well before Skull Creek.  We promise to continue holding fun events.  Please watch your emails and updates to the TRH website for membership renewal and 2016 events schedules.

In a few weeks, once the Board can plan the end of year activities, we will start making plans for the legendary TRH Christmas party and an awards ceremony to hand out trophies to the Family Series winers.  Please watch for that and offer to help.

It is time for TRH members to step up and help out with several Board positions.  It is not as time consuming as you may think and the current crop of Board members (pick one) has worked in the same or rotated to different positions for the last 5+ years.  If you have fresh ideas and an opinion on the direction that TRH should evolve, please speak up and volunteer.  The club stays strong if everyone participates.  Hope to see you out there!

Thank you for your support,
Lynn Bailey
VP
