[RC] EN covers and 100's - Michael Maul

In response to:" But with ALL this talk about the promotion of 100 mile rides, why is it that the covers of EN do not reflect the winning horses of the big 100's ???? "

First - there has to be a picture of the winner taken sometime during the day when there's good light. You don't know they are winners then...

Second - someone has to submit the photo with the photographer's permission to the AERC office as a possible cover picture. The office doesn't solicit pictures - they just get them sent by members.

The photo is chosen from those submitted on the basis of whether it looks good and can be enlarged to cover size. Sometimes with the new digital cameras - a photo is submitted that was taken at low or medium resolution to save space in the memory and it looks pixelated at cover size. I've had this happen after a photo of Julie Suhr at Ft Schellbourne was selected but was medium resolution.

So all these things have to happen for a photo to reach the cover. Plus the rider has to be wearing a helmet if mounted for the photo to be used.

There's certainly been photos from Tevis on the cover but I don't know if the winner ever made the cover.
