Hare Scramble Round 4 – Miller Meadow – August 20th, 2016
Congratulations to the winners this Sunday’s Round 4, Hare Scramble Winners! NSORRA recorded the highest attendance numbers of the season with 141 riders coming out to race. The race trail cover 12 km and used new trail built in 2015 and 2016. This new trail was funded with the support of the Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Organization, National Trails Coalition, and the provincial Off highway Vehicle Infrastructure Fund. When a bike is registered the $40 plate fee goes into the OHVIF fund and contributes to the maintenance and building of the trails you ride on.
The day would not be possible without the many volunteers and our race coordinator, Stewart Colquhoun, putting in a great amounts of effort. NSORRA would like to thank all the volunteers, riders, family members, friends, and spectators who came out for the day and and Miller Meadow landowner, Kyle Ledwidge.
NSORRA would like to extend a sincere thank you to Craig Cairns, Tim Parks, Grant MacLeod, Grant Lingley, and of course the racers and spectators who helped us with the injured rider. To Craig and our CSPS Patrollers…you are true professionals in every sense of the word. Speedy recovery Liam!
