Blue Ridge Ranch....what a beautiful location.  It is truly a breathtaking view of mountains and blue skies.  If you are wanting a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of "city" living, Blue Ridge Ranch would be your solution.

We leave the serenity of the mountains and head back to the solid ground of South Carolina.  Saturday April 8th, we will be at Chestnut Corner in Laurens.  This is a very spectator friendly track with lots of level parking.  Each year we have a jump at the back near the rocks.  Remember this is a ONE DAY EVENT!!!  Everything, all bikes and quads will race on Saturday.  I have listed the schedule below.  It is important that we stay on schedule so we can have everyone out of the woods before dark.

There will NOT be a strider or stacyE bike race this weekend  Also UTV's will not be racing!!   I would encourage you to sign up on line to save from standing in line and being able to get to the starting line on time.    Online signup is open until 11:30 p.m. on Thursday night.

After the event at Blue Ridge Ranch, several of you have reached out with names of riders who are not in the appropriate class.  I have seen those and I will have them moved and results updated within the next couple days.  We have had this conservation before, know that what you race in one Series, you must race in all!!!  If you feel that you are not ranked correctly with AMA, you will need to file an appeal with AMA.    Once you move from C class to B class or B class to A class, you are that higher ranked rider from that point forward.  

Questions have been asked about the contingency programs with Honda, Kawasaki, Husqvarna, Gas Gas and Suzuki.  The link to these contingency programs can be found on the Contingency page of this website.  Also, the April 8th race will be the deadline to sign up for contingency with Parts Unlimited.  The form for that can be found at the sign up trailer.

A huge shout out to Debbie and Cameron Taylor and the paramedics from Wilkes County!!  With their knowledge and skills, they were able to save the life of Keith O'Toole on Sunday.  Thank you for understanding why we had to postpone the start of the 2:00 p.m. race.  Thank you to Davi Souza for getting help to Keith as quickly as he did and for staying with Keith until he left on the helicopter.  After undergoing surgery Sunday night, Keith is  on  the way to recovery.

Please continue to remember Langdon Miller, Hunter Sigmon, Zachary Capps,  Keith O'Toole, Tommy Thompson and Buren Hamrick,  Each of these Mideast family members are recovering from surgeries or accidents and could definitely use our positive thoughts and prayers,   Also, would you remember Don Blanton, Charlie Blanton's father in your prayers.   Don has fallen and broke his femur.

"The art of edifying one another is lost.  Nowadays we'd rather find shade and dirt to throw on one another.  Let me tell you, you have no idea how far your encouragement can go and its impact on one's life.   Try it today! "  Pervis Taylor

Online signup is open until 11:30 on Thursday, April  6th!!!  Take advantage of the opportunity to sleep in a few extra minutes and still get to the starting line on time!!

Thank you for your support of Mideast Hare Scramble.  We may not be perfect but we try hard and are appreciative of our Mideast family!!

Buren and Sheila
