Honda 2017 CRF50

The CRF50F is Honda's longest-running off-road model and choice of first-time riders the world over. The CRF50F offers up an ideal combination of features: Its tough, reliable four-stroke engine develops smooth, easy-to-use power. Its three-speed transmission uses an automatic clutch, so a rider learns to shift, but never has to worry about stalling. Its tough suspension stands up to youthful enthusiasm. And for adults, the CRF50F makes sense too: an adjustable throttle limiter lets you tailor the power to the appropriate skill level, and the proven reliability means more time riding and less time taken up by maintenance and repairs.


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.


Where D23 ARMCA Began

Dale Greenwald started AMA District 23

Dale & Louisa Greenwald

My husband and I, both from Mora, MN, married right out of high school in the late 50's, and my husband was a motorcycle nut. So, there was no doubt that it would be a big part of our life. He was the original Fonzie, wore his hair slicked back with a duck tail, and rode a Harley. Along with that he had a passion to compete and be a part of a bigger organization. In the early days, he would ride to the event, take off the lights and put on a number plate, ride the event, put everything back on and ride home. Life and kids changed us a bit and we started driving to the events with the bike in the back of a van, so the children and I could come along, as the children got older I started working at the events, most of the wifes helped if we could.

During the 60's, clubs from Brainerd, Mankato, Rochester and others around the State were putting on the Hill climbs, TT's, Flat Tracks, Scrambles, and Enduros. My first Enduro that I worked, I was pregnant with Rex, he didn't have a chance of not being involved in motorcycles. It was not until the early 70's that Motocross moved into Minnesota. We attended as many events as we could.

We joined and continue to be members of the Norsemen Motorcycle Club which was founded in 1961. In the 60's our club sanctioned and put on all the different AMA events we could. In the early 70's, after the club bought a 40-acre piece of land right north of Highway 95 on Highway 47 west of Cambridge. We built what we still feel is the best TT track in Minnesota and then in 1972 built our motocross track. We sanctioned and worked many motocross events along with all the other events we did. So many great people were involved and all the members put in many hours at the motocross events, but we still had a fun time.

But Dale and a few others wanted to figure out how the AMA worked, so in the fall of 1969, Dale, then 30 years old, became the first Minnesota AMA Congressman, jumped into his new Chevrolet El Camino along with his good buddy Ron Schmidt (20 years old at the time) and made the 800 plus mile trip to Columbus, Ohio to the AMA for the Congress meeting. During the meetings, Dale began to understand that the AMA was growing and, more importantly, that each geographic location had different issues. Out east where the population is denser, there were many motorcycle enthusiasts, the AMA had already started building local AMA Districts as the sport of motorcycling was growing in the USA. During this natural progression, it was time for the AMA to build out with District leadership and organization. Dale knew it was time for Minnesota to get in the game and put together plans for an AMA District in Minnesota.

As usual, it was over a beer at the bar at the hotel after the meetings when Dale and Ron struck up a conversation with a man named Harley Phillips from Pennsylvania. Harley was one of the leaders of their District in Pennsylvania and Dale asked if he would send him a copy of their By-laws and organizational information. That is how bikers work, we work together with a common bond to help each other along with having some fun.

Weeks later the information arrived, with a few people right in our kitchen in our little house in Robbinsdale, MN, Dale and Dick Bielke, his wife and myself, wrote up the By-Laws, started the first set of District 23 membership cards, and the District was born. District 23 is part of the larger community of the AMA with the same basic goals besides helping and giving us rules and the ability to participate in sanctioned events, it makes us all part of a community of motorcycle enthusiasts who are passionate about our sport, and work to support and promote it. The conversation around our kitchen table was all about fair play, helping each other, being organized and having fun.

Over time and during all this along with raising our family, building a machine shop business, Dale has been involved in many organizations in our community. But, he has alway maintained his love of motorcycling. He continued to make at least 30 more trips to the AMA congress with other fine prople from Minnesota and is very proud of District 23 and its leadership and direction. Dale was at the December 2016 District 23 sanction meeting and the representative from the AMA recognized District 23 (ARMCA) as one of the finest Districts in the AMA.

AS DALE WOULD SAY - IT'S BEEN QUITE A RIDE!!
