Re: RC: ride managers

Terry, I agree with your rationale, and have willingly paid the full price as 
a veterinarian, even on years that I have not ridden.  It has just been my 
experience that sometimes by offering such things as the non-riding 
membership to those who work, you encourage them to eventually become full 
members.  Of course, RM's are a captive audience because they "have to" 
join--but what about other ride workers?  Wouldn't it be nice to have an 
inexpensive way to involve them voluntarily in the organization, make them 
better educated, and maybe even increase their interest?  Just trying to look 
at the possible benefits here, and I think they could be enormous if we went 
about such a thing in the right way.
