The short answer is that I doubt there will be enough (any?) single track trail built in time for you to hold an event in September.
While there have been ongoing discussions between GORC and some of St. Louis County Parks decision makers concerning Queeny, we aren't quite ready to "apply tools to dirt" yet.
Not having spoken with Queeny's Super, I don't know if they would be interested in holding a mountain bike or cx event on the property. Even if they like the idea - and the site allows fun trails to be constructed - the layout might not be conducive to holding a multiple lap event. A local example of that would be Matson, with it's limited space for parking, a start/finish area, scoring table, etc.
I'm cautiously optimistic that something positive will happen, but don't wish to speculate on the WHEN.
