We've sanctioned a trials event for Saturday August 12th.  This will be a very unique and fun event.  The course will be on the rocks of the Whiterwater Park in Downtown Manchester Iowa with great spectator potential.  Late afternoon/evening, the Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Bacon and Hops Festival 3 blocks from the trials course.  Details for that event can be found on festival's Facebook Page.  There will be beer, bacon, vendors, live music, and a 100+ classic car cruise.  I'm working with Kevin to finalize the details and will post more as soon a possible.  We hope that this can become an annual event during the festival.   I'm working on free camping and shuttle service for those that wish to stay and attend the evening activities.  Please spread the word about the event.  Any offers to help with designing the sections would be appreciated - text or call me at 563 929 0420.

Thanks,
Chris - CMJ Raceway

I was in Manchester today checking out lines.  Since this will unofficially be the Iowa State Trials championships and close to CR, Condron has promised to come out of retirement.  I wanted to make sure there were plenty of Champ lines.  Looks like that won't be a problem...

When the OP said Kevin, I thought he meant your husband?

Yes, I am the Kevin that was mentioned.  Shari got a little confused since only  Champs line was talked about, all classes will be able to ride.  This week I am at Door County finishing setup.  Sections are looking great, weather forcast is good for this weekend.

It's all rock.  Big rock.  Large pieces placed on top of each other creating stair steps.  Steep stair steps.

I will try to put some pictures on the WOTA Facebook page.  Manchester is 45 miles west of Dubuque just off Highway 20.  Event will be AMA so you need an AMA card, but will not be points for Wisconsin, Illinois or Minnesota.  Looks like price will be $25 and start times will be riders meeting at 11:30, start around 12:00, and will finish in time to attend the Bacon and Hops celebration a block away from the trials area.  Will post more info when available.

Chris and I are meeting Thursday (tomorrow) to walk and get a preliminary plan for sections and go over some other details is any "Iowans" are available, stop by.

From my conversations with Chris, looks like all section marking will happen Friday evening with some touch up Saturday am. With it being a public area we can't set up too early.

Sounds like he has a good group of bodies to help out sat. too.

We will be meeting Friday at noon to arrow section, will probably stick around to 7 or 8. If anyone would like to come out and camp out, Chris will have room at his place to camp.

Pit area will be next to Burger King.

After walking the area last week I think this should be a really fun event with good sections for all classes included some sections to "show off" the champ class riders abilities.

Got to say that was the coolest trials I've ever been too, outside of a World or National round.   Thanks Chris for having the vision.
