Re: [RC] Git R Done Special in January - Lori Bertolucci

But others have stated it didn't take them as much in the way of entry fees to put on an FEI ride.  Why so much now?

I don’t think we should be bashing ride managers for putting on endurance events.  If you had any idea how much work is involved, money up front in just sanctioning an FEI event, and fees after, the expense of getting officials and vets and paying to fly them in, etc. etc.  I am greatful to the GIT R DONE management team for putting forth the effort to put on an event that is not only wanted, but needed.  There are so few of these events on the west side of the US.  

And please do not take it personal by stating they “obviously do not want just AERC riders”  I think that is unfair statement that is misinformed.  A few key persons that make this particular ride happen are always going out of their way to support AERC and volunteer their time at AERC only events.  I would bet if it is worded that way in the fees, it is because they need the amount to break even.  Putting on an FEI event is not a money making venture in any way!
