RE: [RC] Rider Cards (was FEI) - Ginger Bill

I was a ride manager for a few years and one of those years we had a little descrepancy with time. I was able to bounce the time sheets against the vet cards. We were able to iron the problem out in no time. Thank Goodness. This was for a 55 mile ride. We did not send everyone their vet cards, just the individuals that requested and that was only after all paperwork was completed and sent to AERC. The reason why we did not send to everyone was the expense. Ginger

I'm not commenting on anything to do with FEI.
But I have a question that I would like to ask you and Becky, and any other fellow RMs. I have officially been an RM for 4 years now and have been asst RM/Ride Sec for my mother's rides since I was 12yo so I'm not new to management and AERC's paperwork.
What information do you need from the rider cards (besides pull codes) that has to be put in your ride results for AERC? This is an honest question.
When I fill out my AERC forms all I have to have is my master registration sheet and my timer sheet. I give the rider cards back at awards because I don't need them for anything and it does save me mailing them out later.
I'm just curious, because I have heard several RMs say they have to have them and just as many that don't and I was just wondering what the difference was.

This is a response from Becky Hart to me

The rider cards are the property of the ride management.  They are our records and we use to to complete our forms. Riders should not expect to get the cards back. IN 30+ years of competing at every level I have never expected my card back.  I would suggest this person manage a ride to see the amount of paperwork and the need for the cards to complete it.

As far as FEI,  usually most people don't understand how it works w/ AERC until they have done it.  Often an explanation is all it takes, or maybe not....
