D23 Rule Changes
Rule submission deadline is September 15, 2019 for the 2020 season rulebook.
All ARMCA competition events are governed by the AMA rulebook as well as the ARMCA rulebook. Changes to the AMA rulebook are done at AMA Congress in October every year - if you want to suggest a rule change for the AMA rulebook, talk to one of the ARMCA AMA delegates before August. If you want to suggest a change to the ARMCA rulebook, SUBMIT A PROPOSAL online before September 15 to be considered at the annual meeting.
Here's how the process works:
- Rule change proposals are due by September 15th each year
- Proposed rule changes are submitted to the D23 Board for review and authentication
- The Board determines if the rule is valid and accurate from the AMA and D23 standpoint
- Rules are sent out to the members for review before the annual meeting
- Rules are voted on by members present at the annual meeting
- Successful rule changes are added to the rulebook for the racing season after the annual meeting (i.e. December 2019 annual meeting rules implemented in 2020)

DNR invites public input on proposed forest trails in Rum River State Forest and nearby scattered forest lands
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites the public to attend a meeting on October 21 to review proposed changes to recreational trail systems in the Rum River State Forest and nearby forest lands. The affected lands are in Mille Lacs and Morrison counties. The meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Onamia Lions Community Center, 806 W. Kathio St., Onamia.
Proposed changes include adding 5.9 miles of off-highway motorcycle, 5.1 miles of ATV (class one)/OHM and 1.1 miles of off-road vehicle. The draft proposals reflect feedback gathered during an open house in March 2018.
The forest is classified as "limited" with respect to motor vehicle use, which means that OHV's may only use forest roads and trails that are posted open. The DNR does not propose changing the "limited" classification.
The DNR invites people to attend the meeting to review maps of existing and proposed trails, discuss the DNR proposals, submit comments and suggest modifications to the proposed changes. The DNR will also accept written comments through 4:30 p.m. on November 4.
Comments received at the meeting and during the public comment period will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR Commissioner for approval. Changes to state forest trail designations must be made by Commissioner's order and published in the State Register.
Written comments may be submitted by fax to: 651-297-1157, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail: Joe Unger, DNR Parks and Trails, 500 Lafayette Rd., St. Paul, MN 55155-4039.

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.
