Carnegie Forever Attended the AMA D36 Awards Banquet on January 31, 2014
On Saturday evening January 31st a table with Carnegie’s Alameda Expansion support petitions, was set up outside the banquet hall at the Placer County Fairgrounds in Rocklin, CA. Jerry Fouts, D.36 President, gave us 4 tickets (admission + dinner) for some of the Oasis for Kids guys to attend and work. Paul Wolfson’s son, John, who was there for an award, also helped these 10 year olds sign up over 300 supporters from Northern California. These signed forms and others collected previously at MotoMart and at the Riders’ Appreciation Day, will be submitted to the CA OHV Commission and the Governor’s Office to help get the Alameda Expansion approved and opened for use.
Signing the petition is Eric Lueder, a CA OHV Commissioner, helped by Marius and Stephan.
Jones Hall at the Placer County Fairgrounds was filled with racers and families.
Jerry Fouts (Carnegie rider and D36 President) presented the top AMA award, the Jim Hutzler Service Award, to Jill Patterson for years of service to the AMA and the riders and racers ofNorthern California.
Motocross Legend and AMA Hall of Fame Member Bob “Hurricane” Hannah (blue shirt center) was the guest of honor and helped draw the winning ticket for the KTM 380 auctioned off by Dave Pickett (left of Hannah) the D36 Legal Affairs Officer to help fund his legislative projects.
The kid in the middle and the kid on the right had their trophies but the kid on the left did not. The kid in the middle tells his buddy “don’t worry, you can SHARE mine”. Now you all know why we have to expand Carnegie; it’s for them.
