    All newer riders and those looking to improve their off-road skills:

    Proposed dates for the 2010 ODSC Spring training Day at Trailtours:

    Trailtours Dual Sport Clinic on May 8th. ODSC training day could beheld in conjunction on that day as well. Other possible dates May 15th, 22nd, June 5, 12.... All dates are Saturdays.
    These are dates that Steve has currently available.

    This has traditionally been a members event and very good value. It serves several purposes; helps folks develop skills and gets people out meeting other members face to face.

    More details to follow.......

    Respond here ASAP for date preferences. We'll firm up a date soon.


    $50.00 with lunch included, BYOBike and at least basic riding gear(helmet, gloves, boots).
    Trailtours has well equipped facilities for training and can also deal with many mechanical or medical issues that may happen.
    Minimum of 10 people and max of 40.

    The OCMC Mini Pine Trail ride is listed as being on May 16th on the OFTR & Off-Road Ontario Competion Clubs event schedules. The OCMC web site event schedule shows May 23. :rolleyes: May 23 must have been last years event date.

    Can anyone from the OCMC verify the date?

    Trailtours is located at the North end of the Ganaraska Forest very close to the intersection of Highway 115 and Porter Road.

    I would have 1 to 3 beginners for a May 8th date. I believe there were two skill-level groups last year?

    Is this a blue plate event or can we bring kids as well? I can't do May 8th - the 15th and 22nd look ok.

    If this event is to run this year, we need a minimum # of participants (10) and it doesn't look like we're there yet. If you want to do this, please reply to this thread ASAP. Geared towards anyone that is young or old, new to the sport, or just getting back in after some time away, or wanting to improve skills. The price can't be beat and is a steal for what you're getting; $50 for the day incl. lunch(BYOBike & gear)

    At this point, it looks like the best possible dates are May 15th or 22nd.(to be confirmed w/trailtours).

    I had a great time attending as a newbie would recommend it to anyone new to riding off-road. =D> Can't speak for others, but as much as I would like to go again, I wouldn't want to redo the basic functions & operation portion, accelerating and braking exercises, which took most of the morning.

    If more signed-up, it would be great if they split the group into newbies and those with some experience/rusty that say, started off from slow obstacle manoeuvring/tight circle turning portion, then progressed to the rest.(log/obstacle crossing, hill climbs, off-camber stuff, etc.)

    Also, from the available dates, May 15th looks to be the most logical. If you attend, you're already there, so camp over night for the Mini Pine trail ride/enduro the next day?

    I'd be up for this as I need some work on the technical stuff. My son (15) would be a beginner and I'm not sure what level my stepfather is (not beginner). But he is also interested.

    I need a date though. Any of the days works but I'm running out of time to make sure I have it off work.

    It would be myself +2.
