Trials now.

My man, Paul, poster boy for keeping it real, all Summer long.Wow! All of July just passed like a train, and there sits the poor little SoCalTrials.com website, on a seemingly endless summer break. But NO! Fret not. I'm (the so-called web guy) back. Deadlines met, clients happy, and all that. So thank you to everyone for hanging in there.

Now lets get down to bizness! The season is starting soon, yes?

Yes indeed. September 27, we kick off the 2015-2016 season right, with the Plonker's hosting the opening round at Cougar Buttes. And that's not all. If you've been poking around this here site, you may have read about a secret fun trial, up high in the Piutes, the weekend of September 5. Check it out and if it meet's your idea of fun, then by all means, get on up there. It's a CharliE thing!

The All-New New Season!

What's that? We have calendars for the 2015-2016 competition season? Dang, I'd say that is pretty cool. So mark your calendars, request those days away for extendo-camping, and we'll be looking for YOU at all the fine trials of the coming season. Big shout out to the SCTA Board and outgoing President Chris Cullins for getting this all squared away so swiftly. (Frankly, I'm the slow poke around here!).

 

Without further ado, here ya go.

But download the PDF, my friend. And then RIDE.

A word from the Captain

Sometimes you just might miss this, so I am passing along Paul Oswald's much more eloquent words.

-d.

 

Hi Friends,

Tori Carillo and Jake Malmquist. The Stone Trophy and the Markham Trophy. Every name on those two trophies is a formidable reminder of the work and dedication it takes to keep trials going forward, or be successful as a young competitor. Tori and Skyler Corrillo, and the unpictured Joseph. Yeah team!Thank you Tori for all the selfless work and great lunches. Your Youth Trials are just pure magic and important to our sport.

Jake, take a look at that trophy. The names on it are all special. Your name is now on there too. Honor that special notice you have been given by working hard to improve, and be the great example of a young rider on his way to the top, that I know you will be. Congratulations to you. (Dad too!)

No one will ever know (except me and Sarah) how hard Chris Cullins has worked to keep our trials world alive and healthy. Every event, every stake and ribbon, every meeting, literally everyday and every month of the year our president is banging away at making sure things go smoothly on the SoCal trial world. It is a labor of love, it is daunting. Chris, thank you one thousand times! You have done a super job with our organization.

See you all next season!

Paul Oswald

The Kids Are Alright.

Well, as my good old friend Shakespeare would say, All's well that ends well. And this 2014-2015 SCTA Season has finished so very well. First there were the championship awards. Big shout out to our latest round of class Champions, Jake Malmquist, Novice; Grant Alten, Sportsman; Russ Victor, Intermediate; Erik Mattson, Clubman B; Tim Holm, Clubman A; Chris Cullins, Advanced; and Ty Cullins in Expert.

The Youth award went to the young and very dedicated Jake Malmquist. I rode with this young man, and he is super serious, and definitely on the way up. Big things ahead for young Jake, that's for sure.Jake Malmquist and outgoing SCTA President, Chris Cullins.

Also pictured is our outgoing SCTA President, Chris Cullins. Chris has been dedicated to creating a thriving trials scene here for so many years, and we all here at SCTA thank him for all his hard work and persistence. It isn't always easy, or fun, or even cheap, but Chris has always been there to make sure each and every trial, award, stake and ribbon, were done, and done right. Now maybe he can just relax, and ride!

More later, work becons. Thanks for coming out y'all!

About that Fun Trial..

Howdy all. So, this Sunday is the fun trial, and end of year awards. A few items of note:

We can ONLY ride (for this event only) within the ribboned in area. Very important! As this is not a full-fledged compettition, we have a special permit, and need to stay inside the lines. Please please don't be the guy that gets us thrown off Mount Romoland! Thank you in advance.

But the fun trial: Always fun, kinda goofy, and followed by the end of year awards, for class champions, and IronMan awards, for those that participated in every SCTA event this season. Its awesome, its fun, and before you know it- Next season baby.

Oh Yes We Did.

Cleaned it! The happiest two words in the sport of trials. Today these words took in an altogether different meaning. Romoland: It's not spotless, but it's one dumpster cleaner that's for sure.
