Original Norsemen Member Floyd Martineau lost his battle with cancer 12/17/2020
Floyd was a true Norsemen who did so very much for our club and he will be sorely missed. There will be a ceremony celebrating Floyd at his Trail Head in the spring of 2021, information will be posted as it becomes available. The following is a post by his niece Tammy:
"My uncle passed away today, he was 76. Floyd Martineau (aka Marty) was the baby of 7 children. After graduating from South high school (in Minneapolis) he went into the Navy. When I was in high school he taught me how to use a 35mm camera, leading me to a lifelong hobby. He liked to race motorcycles and when he took a tumble and broke his leg I was right there with my fluorescent paints to decorate his cast with flowers. Motorcycle racing was his passion. He built a motorcycle trail called the Martineau Recreational Trail in the Paul Bunyan State Forest."

Consider the AMA annual release below to save additional time.
AMA offers a Card to save you time and effort
For some time now, the AMA has offered to both minors and adult racers the Annual Release Verification Card. This allows the adult racer to skip the multi forms at sign up. It allows all minor racers the opportunity to skip the two sided Minor Release which requires the presence of BOTH parents at sign-up as well.
The card is free, and is issued when the Competition Membership card has either been purchased or renewed for the entire racing year. The form requires notarization of some signatures. Most banks and UPS Stores offer notary services for free or a nominal fee.
**Be sure to print the form in color, some of the wording is printed in RED and the AMA requires that and will not accept black & white. If you cannot print in color, please call AMA Organizer Services at 614-856-1900 and request an original color form be set to you via U.S. mail.
