AVTA Club News:

Thank you for supporting AVTA - Celebrating 50 years! 1973-2023! This year has been a great one for Kansas trials- thanks to all who joined us as well as the club members who worked hard to make each event such great fun!

Big thanks to Augusta's Twisted OZ Motorcycle Museum for hosting our annual awards banquet. The museum is free and open to the public - a recommended stop anytime! Be sure to look for the AVTA display!

Our next club trial will be held on Sunday May 19th at Douglass, KS to avoid conflict with Mother's Day. 10 am riders meeting and we will ride in groups. Something new for 2024, if you are a new to trials rider you may ride free for your first two consecutive events (2-day not included). It is a great way to learn about trials and discover your balance, too!

Our next club meeting is Wednesday May 22nd at Mack Burnett's garage, 7:30 pm. Pre-meeting for food and conversation at TJ's Burger House, Douglas & Walnut at 6pm - all are welcome!  

The club's calendar has been set for 2024. ***Flint Hills 2-Day is now September 28-29. Click here for a downloadable, perfect for posting on your refridgerator calendar of AVTA events!  

Hats off to our section builders!   The idea here is to SHARE in the section building process by volunteering to build 2 sections a year.  See Jeff Kuhn or Rick Rexroat for more information.  Our heartfelt thanks to the Wednesday crew of Mack Burnett, Bob Saathoff, Steve Williams, Kent Irick, Tiffany and Wes Bucher, Jeff Kuhn, Dean Metsker, and many many others.  Thank you!!!

Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at the Douglass quarry are good days to find club members on site and building sections.  Everyone is encouraged to participate in section building.  Bring weed eaters and clippers for section grooming.

Club officer elections - 2023-2024 officers are:  President - Rick Rexroat, Vice President - Jeff Kuhn, Treasurer - Ed Norfleet, and Secretary - Greg Gann.  Terms are one year each.  If you would like to serve the club and help support our club efforts just ask how!  We appreciate the help!

Ark Valley Trials Association club trials are traditionally held on the 2nd Sunday of each month unless otherwise noted.  Event locations subject to change.  Saturday vintage fun trials will return in the Fall (check the club flyer for details if held), Sundays are the regular club trial with points given towards the annual Kansas State Championship total. Points totals so far are found in the menu on your left.

Please take time to review our club rules, revised September 2023 which are aligned with the NATC scoring rules.  We do not follow all of the rules beyond scoring. 

You can find the current AVTA rules by clicking the menu link on the left labled "AVTA Rules" - included at the bottom of the Rules page is the link to the Kansas State Championship scoring.
