I am not positive as we stopped being members a while back, but at one point FORPWC was talking about doing a 1-day trial membership for people who were interested in joining their club. You'd still have to buy a bike (darn) to make it worth while.

Their main property is just south of Nokesville, VA, on the county line with Fauquier. It's woods and MX there. Shoot them an email to find out if they are doing the 1-day pass or not.

I guess, the first elements of this event are:
a) do you know a good training diverse (hills, rocks, wood trail system) ground to help us to hold this event
b) any of you is interested it in this event?
c) how much would you think it is worth for you?
d) Graham told me he can take up to 20 students per day
e) we will probably need sponsors for this event, probably local dealerships, etc. If anyone has any ideas, suggestions please feel free to share.
f) I was thinking of doing a weekend event 2 day (Saturday & Sunday) and probably organizing 2 packages (1 day pass and 2 day pass). Again any ideas are welcome.
I am doing this because I really want to bring GJ over here to the US of A and get a chance to meet the legend and pick a few tricks from him.

I already posted on Facebook to the questions. I wanted to ask what riding level would this be for and what types of bikes would this be open for?

Lurking in the commuting thread I notice that NOVA seems to be very well represented on this site, so I wondered if there was a thread pertaining to us around. I guess I found it, hello everyone. If you're looking for a good turn, hit 286 north from i95, take the Boudinot Dr exit

Goes right then left, hit a u-turn to go right again; there are a lot of good turns in that area if you look for them with great sight lines all the way through
