I'm not an AERC member and to be honest have not read the
complete "thread" of conversations concerning ride shortages, but just was
wondering about something???
I have friends who are members of AERC and regular
competitors, they want to have a ride in New York State and have inquired about
ride dates several months ago. Last I heard,they are still waiting to
hear. I had another friend in New York, who tried several years ago
to put on a ride and had trouble getting any cooperation from AERC (I think
regionally). Could this be part of the problem? I ride manage a
competitive ride and know how difficult it is to be a ride manager and the
organization I work with couldn't be more cooperative. I can't imagine how
much more difficult it would be if there wasn't that support.
Again, I don't want to talk "out of school" about something
I've really had no experience in, but just wondered if that could be "part" of
the problem. I just thought it was curious that there are people who want
to host a ride very much and are having difficulty getting it
Just some food for thought.
