[RC] re: regional awards - Teresa Van Hove

I think Joe's and Bob's and Truman's comments on this were good; also
these "regional awards" are paid for by AERC out of the national
budget.  I think the reason we even need regional AERC awards instead
of expanded national ones is to balance the field a bit for regions
where it takes a lot more travel to get to the same # of rides.  Most
regions have their own organization and have awards, presented at
their regional conventions, where I believe they do only count rides
within the region, and often have state awards for the person who rode
the most miles in say Wyoming, Colorado, ....  (though I don't KNOW
what criteria PNER, SERA, ... use in coming up with their awards)  So
I cant see any reason for the AERC regional awards to change from the
current system.
