Summer Jam ( Fan Jam Tastic)

Postby Gary B » Sun Feb 08, 2009 9:52 pm

How good is it to have someone so keen to promote Moto-Trials as Paul Arnott.
What a fantastic day at Pacific Park.
Sure it was hot, but well worth it.
Free morning Trials schools, then a Red Hot "Jam Session".
Jack, Jack, Kyle & Sam put on a great show.^W^
To whoever missed out make sure you get to the next one.
(Thats if Paul's keen enough again in the future).

Lot's of thanx to all involved with setting up (and there was a lot of that). =D> =D> =D>
Paul, Toby, Kyle, Michelle, Jack F, Jack K & all the PP crew.

Thanx heaps from Team Boniface. :gasgas

Totally agree…
A superb event - from the air conditioned marquees and copious amounts of free hydration to the expertly run trials schools so, it’s a Huge thanks to Paul A and the team form me.

And a special thanks to OUR masterful coach Toby C. I learned more in two hours than I have in 25 years of riding and if you don’t think trials schools are for you… from observation, I’d say even Garry B learned a trick or two and to see Les B riding the arena style pallet pile and young Jarad B sucessfully tackling the huge see saw was a joy to behold.

And then the awesome display from ‘the Jacks’, Sam R and from Kyle M who joined in to demo some of the most elegant stacks I’ve ever seen.

Bloody fantastic job Pauly and the team, and just because the heat kept a few people away – even though you had the challenge well covered (It shows that a ‘proper job’ in extreme TV production means you know you’re your doing…) - I for one hope you make this a regular feature of NSW trials so that all those that missed out yesterday get another chance to experience it.

What a great way to start the year, it may have been a tad warm but Paul and his crew had generators, fans, ice, drinks all in place to ensure no one suffered any distress.

A truly professional operation and a good fun day.

To the coaches, those who helped set up and those who help run the day thank you. :wink:

A fantastic day and an unbelievable effort Paul and all ^W^

I'd just like to mention that amongst all the tricks and stunts Kyle Middleton really stood out with the precision and agility of his riding abilities. Not forgetting that this is what Observe Trials is all about I think Kyle is really shaping up to be a top world class rider.
And it doesn't go without notice the dedication that Kyle and his dad put into all Trials events they attend.

Best of balance Kyle.=D> :thumb:

PS....Hey Paul, any chance of holding an indoor event in that air-conditioned tent of yours :lol:

I'd Just like to thank everyone who did attend on Sunday, even though numbers were down on what we expected. I hope all those who attended had an enjoyable time, and I apologise we did not run everything we had planned...... but it was too damn hot!
I have a heap of Hell Team Trials T-Shirts that I was going to give away, so if any of the people who came would like one, just post me a self addressed, stamped satchel and I'll send one to ya!

My greatest appreciation goes out to all those great friends who helped me put it together.
Keith Marchant's expert work on the earthmoving machinery especially.
Toby Coleman for his really excellent Coaching, and help all weekend.
Also Michelle Owen and Jamie O'Neill who pitched in with the training.
Brad Marchant
Tony Coomer, and Kristie McKinnon for a great job setting the sections
Darryl and Cindy Kavangh
Chris Chellas beyond the call of duty on the wrap day.
Jack, Kavvy and Rhianna
Kyle Middleton who is always willing to pass on his knowledge to other riders. He is always the first to put his hand up to help with coaching, and never shy to give back something whenever possible. He jumped at the chance to help entertain the crowd with his superb riding skills. His grace and poise on his Gas Gas is a rare treat.
And everyone else who made it happen.

I am already thinking about the next one, and it will be way bigger and BETTER.
Thanks again

Paul

Thanks to Paul and the hard working crew who put on a top day! Yes it was too bloody hot, but I enjoyed it all the same. I wasnt going to miss it at all. Thanks to Toby on coaching me, trying to get me over that damn log, next time I'll nail it.
To the Freestyle blokes, well done and very entertaining. Great set up and lucky to have the shade for us spectators.
I didnt have the energy to test all the new bikes on offer, so that will have to wait till next year.
=D> =D>


Feet up, as always!
