It's best for you to keep your mouth shut than for me to expose you for the fraud that you are.
Fact is, people who are guilty of wrongdoing often change the subject
or make long posts in an attempt to confuse or misdirect people who are reading.

For example, the secretive addition of the 6 ludicrous ATV classes to the AMA rulebook, outside of the normal rulemaking process, was an act of unbridled narcissism and the greatest abuse of what a rulebook stands for I've ever seen. A rulebook is, first and foremost, about providing competitors a fair and equal opportunity to compete - giving one subset of those riders 2 versions of a 450 class, and 3 versions of an Open class, while another subset gets 1 each, is the very opposite of "fair and equal." Fixing that abuse of the rules was amongst the easiest things an official has ever done, so blatant was their wrongness.
The current AMA rulebook lists no redundant classes as being required. Having said that, it is always the club's prerogative to add whatever extra classes as exhibition as they wish to do - therefore, you should be happy that this year's nationals in Waterford, OH, will be offering all those extra classes - an inalienable right of the hosting club, which I would fight tooth and nail for. And, in fact, did - just this year, for the benefit of Pioneer M/C...and, in fact, specifically for their right to offer and award national championship trophies for those specific classes.
To answer your other question about ~260 entries being a "huge success" at IMC - first of all, it was a huge success, by any measure. Our all-time record for a single event entry (outside of nationals) at IMC is 284 - and last year, we'd averaged well under 250 for the year...off the top of my head, probably closer to 220-230. So, without a doubt, ~260 entries is by any measure a huge success for IMC. And realistically, would be for any club anywhere in the country.
A quick run of the results through Excel shows 106 individual rider names. Which comes out to 2.45 class entries per actual rider. Which is pretty much the way the sport has always been since time immemorial - the average rider enters 2 or 3 classes. Some only enter 1, and some enter 4 (or more...D16 actually allows up to 6). Somewhere around 2.5 classes per rider is right on the money.
And our numbers - both in rider count and entry count - vastly demonstrate that D23 is far and away the healthiest area in the country for the sport of hillclimb. And while that's great for us...the sad part is that it's really...well, sad, for other parts of the country where the sport isn't doing very well - or in some cases, on life support.
So there you go. Did I answer your question thoroughly and completely enough? Or did I, by way of being thorough and complete, somehow attempt to obfuscate a truth somewhere?
Finally, as noted at the beginning of this post, there is nothing to incriminate me on. I stand utterly proud of every action I've taken in support of this sport, either as an official or as an individual. And if you want to express a different "opinion" about those actions, you can go right ahead and do that.
If you want to complain about my performance as an official, you can call the other D23 hillclimb director, which is Tim Cain. His phone number is (651) 442-3888, and he's an impossibly patient man, and I'm sure he'll listen to all you have to say. You can also go to the head of the district - Mike Quinn is the D23 president, and has been for some time. His phone number is (507) 254-5386. Maybe you can convince Mike to get me thrown off the D23 board.
While we're on the topic of D23, if you want to propose a rule change for the district there are directions on how to do so on the D23 website: http://www.armca.org/rules/
If you want to complain about my performance as a club member, you can call the Indianhead M/C president - that would be Dan Prebe, and his phone number is (651) 345-4376. And/or call the Valley Springs M/C president, Mike Bronk. His number is (715) 325-4034. Maybe you can convince one or more of them to throw me out of the club(s).
Or if you want to complain simply because you like complaining, you can keep doing so right here on these forums. I absolutely, positively, encourage you to keep right on with your "incriminations." If you can manage to convince enough D23 members that I'm the menace you insist that I am, they can vote me out as a D23 director. Come to think of it, if you can convince the D23 clubs that I'm a menace, they can vote me out as an AMA congressman too.
But I don't want to limit you to just this one website either...come to an Indianhead M/C climb this year and I'll personally arrange for you to be granted time to address the ridership at a riders' meeting. On top of that, you can come to a D23 board meeting, and address not just the D23 president, but every other officer and member of the board. Our board meetings are at 7:00PM the first Wednesday of every month, at the Knights of Columbus in Bloomington, MN. I'd even sponsor you in to talk at an IMC and/or VSMC meeting as my personal guest if you'd like. Take your time and say your peace to the clubs directly.
You probably ought to have a talk with Ron Deeken down there at Over The Hill Racing in Troy, KS too. He's probably not aware of the fact that I'm a menace - he should totally refuse to allow me to provide a KOTH trophy for the KS state championship anymore, or to post his schedule or even mention his events on this here, personal-agenda-laden website.
But here I am, making a long post with the clear intent of distracting unsuspecting readers from my true inner darkness. My apologies. You'd better get back to posting more incriminating evidence on me, so that the supreme court can get that indictment made.
