NEOC IMPORTANT PRESS RELEASE
Brian and I would like to announce with much love and heavy hearts that we are hanging our helmets up at the conclusion of this season. There are a hundred reasons we could give to explain why but just simply said…It is Time. We have for many years devoted our time, love and passion to the youth of this sport and in turn we were blessed by being part of so many families’ weekend adventures. We have formed life long bonds of friendship that if not for this sport we would have missed out on. Every single hug and smile we received or gave was sincere and treasured in our hearts. The NEOC has only been half of the years we spent trying to make our small part in this world a better place. As we all know, Life dictates the way our path winds around the mountains we climb and we couldn’t be more blessed then having all of you take that walk with us, especially when the climb was steep and full of obstacles. We have seen and shared many life experiences, happy times, sad moments, accomplishments, devastation, new life brought into this world and many angels taken from it……The hurt and sadness you feel for those you care about is soothed by the love and friendship from those very same people. The Good, The Bad, The Ugly and The Beautiful is what life is made up of, however, it is up to you on which one you choose to seek out and embrace. Of all the things we promoted over the years please remember this one; it’s always about the faces not the races. The love you shared and how it made them feel is what they will remember not the finish. We cherish the friendship and every hug that was freely given to us over the last 20 years. Our life has been rich with emotion and passion that will last a life time……This isn’t goodbye but until we hug again….after all, if you know the Hartem Family, then you know we don’t sit idle or watch the parade go by.
