    DELIVERYThe delivery goal of District 14 News is normally around the middle of the month.

    OCTOBER2014 BOO! Looks like our racing season is almost over! :(

    Once October is outt a here like a ghost, only the Enduro division will hold races in November. But fun ti mes spent with your D14 buds are being planned as I write this, and they're just around the bend. So be sure to check back next month for some banquet dates that will be coming up in the near future. Ice Racing will also be here before we know it. Haven't tried it? I think this winter just might be the one that gets you out on that ice. Go for it!! If adequate coverage of your division is a bit frighten-ing this month, please ask your division leader, "What's up with the vanishing act?" I'd like to know too! Lastly, there's no "trick" about it, this month's con-tributors a real "treat" to see on the pages each month. Thank YOU for all you conti nue to do for District 14, this newspaper, and your division! SERIOUSLY!

    On September 14th at Portland Trail Riders one of the nicest guys in D14 motocross and the Vintage MX chairman since 2008 had a very serious crash. Steve Baginski had his throttle stick wide open off of one of the biggest jumps at Portland. In doing so he jumped off of his bike mid air and landed on his feet. The crash resulted in some very serious injuries including both ankles being fractured, broken Tib/Fib in his left leg, dislocated right hip and a fractured pelvis.
