Re: [RC] regional awards question - Rides 2 Far


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.

I once came in 2nd LW in the SE and the first LW beat me by going out
west and doing a multi-day. That was alright. I'm still in favor of the
current system. 

I ride in rocks & mtns. I have no place to train for sand. That knocks me
out of the FLA. rides, JD's, & Liberty Run. (I have done the 100 there
but paid for it with a layoff).  I am now looking out of region for some
rides that might fit our abilities better.  If the points wouldn't count
I doubt I'd travel to do those 100's.

Our regional club (SERA) only counts rides sanctioned in our region.
Riders in Kentucky are at a disadvantage compared to me when competing
for SERA awards. I'd hate to punish them twice. I live in the dead center
of the Southeast. I think SERA's awards can satisfy the question of what
horse & rider team was tops competing in OUR region. The AERC system of
counting residence only can leave the rider free to travel. Good system.
