Re: [RC] okay, another question - Joe Long

A horrible ruckus broke out over this rider breaking the rule. The ride
manager climbed down the entered rider's throat and the throat of the
other riders to the point that the Water Management District ranger had
to step in and remind the RM that she had no authority over anything or
anyone not associated with the endurance ride. The ranger gave the RM a
pretty good dressing down and I think she deserved it. 

That wasn't a problem with the rule, it was a problem with application
by the ride manager.  In that example, a simple warning, an explanation
of the rule, would have sufficed:  "Sorry, but you're not allowed to
have un-entered friends riding with you while you're riding an AERC
ride."  No penalty was called for, unless they continued riding together
after that.

You can always find examples of a rule being misapplied or abused, that
doesn't mean we can go without them.
