** Rocky Cassone Memorial Race **

Above is the image that was on each of the plaques that was awarded to our trophy finishers on this racing day.  Its an image of one of the club's closest friends, Rocky Cassone (on left), racing with Ace Club president, John Barton, when they were both only 16 years old (the year was 1976 and the district was OURS).  As fate would have it, Rocky would pass away of natural causes, while racing his YZ450 at Ace Motocross last year and the Ace Club has decided, that "forever", the May event will be dedicated to Rocky.  Here are some more details about the life of Rocky Cassone.

We want to thank each of you who came out to support us on this glorious, spring day.  It was a milestone for our club, the largest turnout ever, and we thank each of you (and probably Rocky too) for making that happen.

These are all very LARGE, very CLEAR images.  If they appear too small to you its because your browser is automatically resizing them on you.  Here's how to fix that:  Bring up a desired result image (the one you feel is too small) then move your cursor over the white space area (probably on the bottom of the image)  for a moment or two, then move it back over the green result hardcopy.  Magically should see a small box with arrows appear on the image on the lower right hand corner.    Click on that and the full size image will be present.

Meet two major players from district 34:

Jeff Dirago (left) is the machine operator who grooms the face of every jump at Walden, Diamond and ACE before each of these track's Sunday events.  Jeff is a former district champion who spent many of his earlier years challenging Carlo Coen for expert class wins.  Certainly rates as one of the finest riders our district has ever seen.

In center we have Phil Klemens, the president of South Woods motocross.  Now that I had Phil right in front of me I asked him a question that I know all of you have been wondering about: "Phil, is South Woods going to run as scheduled?".   Phil's answer is "Absolutely, we have a track and its  ready to run. We had to make some routing changes so it will be somewhat different than previous years.   But we feel these are quality changes and, most importantly, we are definitely going to run our events as scheduled."  So there you have it, the president of South Woods looking you right in the eye now and telling you the way it is.  Now, as for all those South Woods cancelation rumors you had been hearing?  "MYTH BUSTED !!"
