So which ones are good for a first timer again? Asking for a friend who didn't make it last year...

okay, that was no help at all...
I'll pencil in Apple and Lucky for now, If I do one, it will be a win already
So when do training sessions start? After slamming my ribs on gravel last week, I know there's some serious lack of CX skills on my part.
In all honesty, every race is beginner friendlyish. Some may have more climbing (Marty CX, Town Hall) but they're all about a 2-3km/lap. Some are set up better for party atmosphere, but that also depends on who actually shows up. Bubble CX and Hippo CX are both fun times. Bubble and Caffeinated are prolly the most fun to ride.

This was Caffeinated last year. Don't do this.

Is this Craigmeur Park you speak of the one in Newfoundland, NJ? The man pointing the gun at me says Rockaway, NJ but I'm not aware of such a place in Rockaway.

If so, good on you for restarting that venue. MTBNJ did a 1st Annual race there in 2014 that never saw a 2nd Annual. Also there were the ones back in 2007ish. Great terrain for racing CX there. Either way, good on Team HB for firing up a race this year.

Yes it’s weird. It’s in Rockaway but the mailing address is Newfoundland. So yes it’s that one. Where Mtbnj ran the cross race in 2014?

The old ski resort on Green Pond Rd...

People liked the course (I think) and it has the facilities to create a great festival vibe. I have a bunch of possible course configurations overlayed onto google earth if you’re interested. Also, we’d be happy to share some thoughts on how to make the venue work given that the lot is so far from the fields and covered picnic areas.

Yeah.... that course was good... it rained the day of the race.... those off cambers had absolutely zero traction... can't wait....
