RE: [RC] regional awards question - Bob Morris

Joe: I believe you were the maker of the motion that is now
the current rule. As I remember there was considerable
discussion about the move and it was determined that it was
in the best interests of all competitors to go the way it
went.

How do you folks feel about the following - concerning AERC
regional awards?

Currently it doesn't matter where you ride, only which
region you belong to.
Theoretically a rider can earn a regional award w/o doing
any rides in the
region of residence.

What are your feelings on this - pros and cons? Should
there be any
limitation on the number of out-of-region rides or miles
that can be applied
to regional awards?

This has been considered in the past.  The reason it's done
this way
is that many AERC members live near Regional boundaries, and
split
their rides among different Regions.  Riders who go to more
than one
multi-day ride usually go to multi-days in different
Regions.  They
couldn't compete successfully for Regional awards against
the people
who do all or most of their rides in one Region, if the
awards were
given based on the Region the rides are held in rather than
the Region
the rider lives in.

With the current system, no matter where you live, you can
go and ride
wherever you wish, and know that the points count toward
your Region's
awards.

When considering a change like this, also watch out for
unintended
consequences.  For example, if the system is changed, riders
wouldn't
be able to count points from multi-days held outside the
Region they
normally ride in, which could hurt attendance at multi-day
rides.
