I will be there!

I've never run a hare scramble, what type of trail should I expect? Is it going to be enduro trail, or stuff you'd see at the hammer run, or something totally different?

In any case, I am super looking forward to this!

Hare Scramble is part (mostly) Enduro part Motocross. Nothing crazy in the MX section just an open pit with bermed sweeping turns, hills and a few small jumps.

Sounds awesome. I'm pumped for this. I am probably going to get my ass kicked, but that is totally fine! I will start at the back of the C riders. :)

Won't know unless you try! C class riders(beginners) ride a 8 mile loop.

Here is a link to the official flyer:

http://www.teamhammer.org/2012%20Stu...02012feb15.pdf

Quoted from the Team Hammer Website:
Quote:
the flyer has been updated to show these changes below:
Flyer change for scramble:
Super Seniors: Super Senior B and C's
will ride in the "C" event.
Super Senior A riders will be in the main.
(last year we pulled SS A out of the main because it was a national and they are not supposed to go 3hrs)
Flyer change:
Starting Saturday 50cc's at 12 noon (was 12:30), since they now run for 45 minutes instead of 30min
If you need a place to stay and want the nicest accommodations for the family, check out our deal with Fairfield Inn by Marriott. Mention Tri County Sportsmen. Discount will also include some discounts for Texas Roadhouse. It is not the cheapest place, but if you want the best we got a deal worked out for you.

Wish I were ready to ride "event level" this early in season. Cracked my hand up, a few weekends ago, and have not ridden last couple weekends. I am sure it will be a great event with awesome trails and terrain. Uncharistically good for "south NJ".

Only requirement that I know of is that you be an AMA member.
I'm not sure about the ECEA "licensing"/"test", but if that's the case, it's likely you will be able to do it at signup. There will be AMA signups available on site from what I've heard.

Nope, this isn't a rally, they won't make you pay seven thousand dollars to ride on public roads.

My understanding of the rules is you only need to be an AMA member. If you want to accumulate series points you need to be an ECEA member.

Bummer. Just sold my bike and haven't found a replacement yet. I was looking forward to it too.
