Motherís Day motorcycle race at Johnson's Mill May 9

   The Orofino Motorcycle Club (OMC) is gearing up for the three races the club puts on every year. The Johnson's Mill Motherís Day race is scheduled for May 9 and the 4th Annual EnduroCross race is set for May 22. The fall race date is yet to be determined.

   The EnduroCross takes place at the City Park arena only. There was some confusion about going out into the streets also. The bikes will not be on the streets. In the future the club would like to put on a two-block area street race on the Friday night before the EnduroCross, but at this time there are not enough funds and a lot more planning is necessary to do this.

   The street race will have pro riders only in this event. There are safety issues that need to be work out as far as the riders, spectators and businesses.

   The club has meetings the first Monday of each month at the OCI building at 6 p.m. The next meeting is scheduled for April 5. Anyone who would like to help (volunteer) are welcome to come to these meetings. Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped in the past.
