    OK 10th Annual North East Husky Gathering info. (Yes 10 Years guys!)

    When: 7-9 October 2016. Friday is a get there/settle in/relax day. Casual riding. Sat is XC race or casual trail ride or casual MX ride.Sun is MX race and casual XC trail ride.

    Where: 2754 South Cortland Virgil Rd. 13045-8988. Sherman Rd is a cross street and road leading in to the ride (may or may not show up on your navigation device) This is the Logan Farm proper, on the east side of the road. The farm road up to event location, is on west side about a tenth of a mile south. It will be arrowed and ribboned. We will have plenty of arrows up as you get close and also we will have signs in braille for some of us real old guys

    Who: Any Husky and buddies on non husky are ok as long as there is a husky "sponsor" so to speak. We love our Huskys but it is all about the fun. All years vintage is ok too (in honor of the fierce competition given to Husqvarna during the "glory Years" that are soon coming back. We may have some former and current ISDE vets show as well. How often do you get a chance to bang bars with that?

    Our own resident photographer will be on hand to make you look famous (or infamous).


    sun_mx_162.jpg Cost: "Husqvarna-care" is in effect. What is "Husqvarna-care"? Registration goes back to 2007 inaugural fee of $40! Also a small parking fee to be used as a thanks for the land owner. Per car, RV, truck, Camper, giant wooden rabbit, M-1 Abrams etc.Also as far as there being co-run with a race the same weekend......no worries. You DO NOT need any AMA, AHRMA, AARP, Social Security, Starbucks frequent buyer, or any other "cards" to attend. If you are wanting your AHRMA event/series points then yes you need AHRMA membership.Bottom line…..going for AHRMA Series Points…..sign up with AHRMA…..Wanting just fun and not worrying about race points see Norm or I for sign up.

    What: As usual, all about the fun. We've always run it, as a fundraiser. In the past we've helped: Husky/non Husky riders with health problems, their family members, Husky mounted ISDE riders and more. Good things happen, when Husky Riders get together! This year we are trying to help Fred Hoess and his crazy saga of Doing the vintage ISDE in Spain on and 86 WR250.

    There is open riding on a separate MX and XC courses (except when the AHRMA race is utilizing that venue). This year North East Huskys will be sponsoring its 3rd AHRMA MX/CC race the same weekend. The vintage XC race is Saturday and we will have a special “Non AHRMA Husky class” for those that want to race in it. Non AHRMA points competitors only, your XC race fee is covered in the $40!Another plus.Those that just want to trail ride can as well. Sunday is AHRMA MX .8 mile, old fashioned, off camber scrambles track, with no jumps.So MX open course is just Sat.You can register for Sun MX races but this is on your dime.

    MX course all cut in. looking good. a little rain yesterday and fri were good. MX course just under a mile.

    XC loop is just under 4 and alot of new virgin trail flowing and nice. mix of terrain and mostly woods single track,

    Got mauled by wasps on sat finishing up and had to cut in a bypass (stung 14 times....thankfully not allergic as Epi pen is like a million dollars!)

    cut a bypass and new section around wasps. gave them clear berth so no worries guys

    the mx and xc courses share nothing common this year so whatever your passion there is no issues about running either and having to look out for incoming traffic

    We will be there around noon friday for the early birds campers bring warm bedding as it gets colder here at night.

    super wal mart just down the street so if you forget anything it is there

    Remember....you get a free entry into the XC race with your husky Gathering sign up registration.

    We will have special Husky gathering classes for the xc race both modern bikes and vintage/PV bikes

    See you all there!
