Here we go NYOA! Round 11 is up next. This is our final round of the 2020 season and our annual #PINKOUT event! We are excited to see your creativity "pinking out" the field this coming weekend. There will be pink containers are the event for donations. All proceeds will be donated to Traci's Hope in Apalachin, NY. This non for profit assists breast cancer patients with different aspects of their care and financial needs.
As always, we ask that you monitor your own health. If your temperature is above 100 or you have any of the symptoms as defined by the CDC, contact your healthcare provider and sit this one out.
We look forward to seeing you all this weekend at Round 11- Broome-Tioga!
50 Shaffer Rd, Richford NY
Friday: 5pm- Event Conclusion
-MECHANIC WRISTBANDS: In order to be in the starting area, you will need a MECHANIC WRISTBAND issued by Broome- Tioga at Registration. If you registered online, please see Jennifer at the AMA table to collect your wristband. ONE WRISTBAND PER RIDER. Broome-Tioga staff will be enforcing the one crew member per rider in the start area at each race. The crew member must have a face covering on in the start area.
-SOCIAL DISTANCING: PER PROMOTER- NO MASK, NO ENTRANCE!!! NYOA was fined due to the lack of mask wearing by attendees at a recent event. Your cooperation with this mandate is essential for our ability to receive County approvals for future events. IT WILL NEGATIVELY IMPACT TOM HURD & BROOME-TIOGA IF YOU FAIL TO COMPLY. This means face coverings must be worn in the start area, by the start area, in vendor row, groups gathered by scoring, etc. Social distance in the woods if you don't want to or are unable to wear a mask. There are hundreds of acres for crew members to spread out and support their riders. Follow the instructions of the officials or risk disqualification.
-PARKING: Per our promoter- there will be NO SAVING SPOTS! Arrive together is you plan to camp/ park together. Campers must park parallel. Please allow 10 feet between campers. All campers must park facing the same direction by row per Tioga County. The promoter will have parking staff to direct you.
-COMMON COURTESY: Guys, this is our final event for 2020. We have some fun things planned and we are looking to close this really challenging season out on a high note! Please respect each other, our host, and the property. Remember, your rider can and WILL be disqualified for actions taken by the pit team/crew.
-TRUNK-OR-TREAT: We will be having kids trick or treat around the campers from 6:30-7:30pm on Saturday night! Bring your costumes, decorate your camp area, and bring treats or candy to pass out! Please remember to respect social distancing and avoid cross contact. Putting candy or treats spread out on a table by your camper so children can choose one and are not grabbing from a bucket or having another person hand it to them would be best. Adults, please escort your littles as we want them to be safe. Consider wearable glow items to have better visibility and for child tracking purposes.
-PINK OUT: Get that pink gear and get those machines pinked out! Full Action Cycles (Ken & Sue Rose) have some really fun items to help your ride, and you, get pinked out! Stop by and see them! Donations to Traci's Hope will be collected all weekend throughout camp to support the work they do for breast cancer patients in memory of Traci.
Again, this is our final event for the season. We know that it's been challenging, but our behavior and actions at this event can effect next season. We want to show our community that we can do what we love within their guidelines. Please help us with that and wear your mask, social distance, and wash your hands!
*IF YOU AREN'T FEELING WELL, experiencing ANY symptoms, or have a temperature greater than 100.4, please stay home.
We will see you all this weekend!
In support of October as breast cancer awareness month, we are looking forward to the annual Pink-Out event that we have traditionally had at the finale of our season. This year, our last round will be held on October 11th, 2020 at Broome-Tioga.
We will have pink free will donation containers at the event and the money collected will be donated to Traci's Hope in Apalachin, NY. CLICK HERE to check out their website! They provide help to breast cancer patients through donations.
We would like to thank our very own Bob Johnston (BobbyJ) for the idea for this event!

Attention Racers & Families:
We know everyone is excited and anxious to get back to racing. In an effort to provide accurate and as current information as possible, we will be posting updates for every race starting on the TUESDAY PRIOR TO THE RACE WEEKEND.
We communicate through the OFFICIAL NYOA Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and website. The social accounts are linked at the bottom of the website. (SNAPCHAT- nyoaxc_official)
There are other social media pages out there that are about our series and are great places for members to talk and share, but they are not run by NYOA leadership or managed by out social media team and we do not post official information on them. Sometimes members will copy and paste the official updates on those accounts or pages to share information, but we do encourage you to follow the official social media accounts as well. If you have questions you want official answers to, as always your best resources are your Rider Reps, or one of the official NYOA accounts.
Please understand that this season has presented a unique set of challenges for our series. There are individuals out there who do not want to see our series succeed or even continue. They are actively trying to get our events shut down every week. We have been made aware and have responded to calls made to the state and local authorities where 100% false information was given about our events. Because our promoters and NYOA leadership have been proactive in working with municipalities before our events and fulfilling their requests, we have been mostly successful in dealing with these anonymous calls and internet complaints citing false information. We are pursuing all avenues including filing FOIL requests and consulting legal counsel to advise us on legally pursuing the slanderous claims.
We appreciate all of you and your patience. Please know we will provide all updates as we have them.
-Chip Mann, President
We have many new members and day riders coming out to our event, so we wanted to share some important reminders with all of you to keep us all on the same page.
PIT RIDING: We have had some concerns brought forward about this. IT IS NOT ALLOWED. If you have a reason to have a handicap pass, please see Lori Calkins at Budget Racing to get the proper paperwork. In addition, DOUBLE RIDING IS NOT ALLOWED. If our officials see people riding like that with or without helmet(s) we can have you, or your rider, disqualified.
VENDOR ROW: There are NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES allowed on Vendor Row. This includes going to and from the start. It is a safety issue and you can be disqualified for riding through there.
PARKING COURTESY: Again, this is common sense. DO NOT block other vehicles. DO NOT block roadways/ driving lanes. You may have to walk a bit to get where you're going. Be respectful of each other.
REGISTRATION: Hours will be 4:30-6:30 Saturday and 7:00-2:00 Sunday. PLEASE HAVE ALL FORMS FILLED OUT BEFORE YOU COME, an UNexpired AMA Card (or a photo on your phone), minor release (if needed), exact change, and your own pen. FACE COVERINGS SHOULD BE WORN TO AND IN THE TENT. One person only in line, please do not come in groups. Respect social distancing.
*THIS EVENT IS FOR RACERS, THEIR TEAMS, AND THEIR PIT CREWS ONLY. NO SPECTATORS ARE ALLOWED*
