The Kids are Allright!

Keeping right up with the weird WHO (that's a band from the 60's kids ... go ahead ... google them) theme that I seem to suddenly be on with the last couple of posts ... Lynnea Rankins sent along these pictures from the Wisconsin State Championships a few weeks ago in Wisconsin Rapids.

These dudes and dudettes are sportin' some serious hardware for sure.

In the top photo, one of the dinky darlin's of Milwaukee BMX, Rachel Rankins is showing off her new State #1 plate, while those boys muggin' in the bottom photo include (left to right) pocket rocket Max Schmitt, Jacob Hinzpeter, RJ Eckert and Reece Rankins. Max and Jacob also both earned #1 plates, while Reece scored another #2 -- and while we know that RJ finished second on the day -- we're not sure quite where that left him in the overall. Ray, if you're reading this ... give us a shout ... I will definitely make the correction!

Great job, guys and gal ... you sure make us "home track" types proud ... not to mention, you represent us well.
Aint No Cure for the Summertime Cruise

Well, there's just one race to go in the 2008 season at Milwaukee BMX and with the official end of summer happening yesterday ... we're slowly winding down and beginning to turn our thoughts to the upcoming indoor season.

We want to thank everybody who has made the 2008 Milwaukee BMX season such a great success, despite the best attempts of Mother Nature to wash us away this past spring.

To all of our loyal and dedicated Milwaukee BMX Volunteers, donors, sponsors, competitors and parents ... please accept our ongoing gratitude ... we couldn't do any of this without you folks!

October 4th will be our next, and last, scheduled race, and we are planning our season ending "bust up" for that day as well ... we'll be grilling burgers, brats and hot dogs and serving up cold beverages as well ... if anybody is interested in bringing a dish to pass ... please do. Otherwise, just plan to come on out ... race and spend a great Saturday afternoon at the track.

And, for those of you who couldn't join us last Saturday, a new photo album with plenty of racing action has been added here:

We hope you enjoy it !!!
