It is too bad that no one will work collectively in the ECEA to make a change or move forward..
Nothing at all wrong with time keeping.. even in a check in/ check out/ format the E seconds count so ya need some equipment if you are serious to win.
Anyway IMO the testing of different ideas is a good thing.
If the Time Keeping Tradition wants to be a real thing and live on then why not band together and make it easy for the rider to get involved. One can sit here and list all the pro's and cons, maybe we should, then analyze what is the best and the worse aspects etc etc.
I see the AMA released info on am WESTERN USA TRADITIONAL ENDURO SERIES.. maybe there can be a market..
IT SHOULD BE DONE by a few key players (the GUYS THAT MAKE IT HAPPEN) from each club that agrees to become the Enduro Race Committee and take on the tasks of building the future. The ECEA meetings are great but we babble ideas and say what we hate and like and it is a broken record, same issues , same conflicts, Actually the last 2 years there has been very good open conversation and lots reality checks.
PLEASE KEEP THIS STUFF IN THE ECEA CLUB FORUMS, why do we hash this in the Event PROMOTION, sure chatter brings attention but it must be positive driven...
