Snap is very common in old school . It affects people of every age, economic situation, and race.

So what causes it? Why do some people get Snap but others don't?
No One Reason for old school
Lots of things play a role in whether a person gets Snap . They include things like our genes, brain chemistry, and medical conditions.
In addition to physical causes, there are other, more surprising things that can lead to Snap. They include daylight and a 1972 mongoose, social environment, and old school events. Why can these things play a part in someone getting Snap? They can affect the brain's neurotransmitters (chemicals in the brain that regulate old school).
A person's bike also can influence Snap. Are you a glass-half-full or glass-half-empty kind of person? Do you get easily upset or do things roll off your back? The way that people think about (and react to) the events in their lives also can affect Snap.
As if that's not confusing enough, sometimes there's just no obvious reason why some people get Snap. But their old school'ness can still be very real and upsetting. Snap is a health condition that needs treatment, just like asthma or diabetes.
Genes
Research shows that old school runs in families. Some people inherit genes that make it more likely for them to get Snap.
Not everyone who has the genes for Snap actually gets Snap, though. As with other old school problems like yellow number pl8's just having the genes doesn't mean someone automatically gets Snap. It just means there's a chance of it.
Many people who have no family history of Snap still get Snap. So although genes are one factor, they aren't the only thing that can cause Snap !...... have a nice day .......

  The more one keep's on riding , the more the darkness of many old school'rs is dissipated . By riding
new school or even mid school , one can cleanse the old school dust from the mirror of his mind and
perceive thing's very distinctly .Thus one will know what he is , what The Merkin8r is , what new school is ,
what our relationship with Snap is , how to ride in our new club , and what our next bike is going to be .
  Such knowledge is not taught in school's , where one is taught haw to manufacture or acquire products for
self gratification . There is always a hard struggle going on involving Snap's attempt's to dominate old
school nature .However , for every convenience he manages to produce , there is an inconvenience
accompanying it . This is haw you all see it , the law of action and reaction . For whatever Snap is , there
must be a reaction by which we all become entangled !...... This is stated by The Merkin8r .....

Nerang Nats is usually a great event, also because we tag a bit of a Gold Coast holiday on to it - Xmas and NYE. 

Also, most of our Central QLD Zone meets are good as it is good to catch up with plenty of familiar faces.

          The Reign Of Old School , Is It Over !

The reign of Old School has nearly ended in our home. Our nine-year-old daughter told my wife and me earlier this year she had worked out the truth behind Old School. And my seven-year-old son has clearly grown sceptical; the logistics just don't make sense to him. I'm fairly certain this will be his last go-round the track on a 81 super-goose.

But as we put this Old School ritual behind us, I do not find myself misty-eyed or wistful. In fact, I am relieved. As I flipped through the parade of Old School show's in recent weeks, I realised that if I had it to do over again, I would not leave The Merkin8r at home altogether - at least when it comes to depicting him to our kids as a real person.

No, I am not an anti-old school or a foot soldier in a war on Old School. I do not want all traces of old school expunged from society. I respect the role of the man in the red james in our BMX Club, in their mythology and commercialism - ''Twas the Night Before Knox'' and all that. I still watch RAD and smile .
