We are going to set up a booth at the AERC convention again this year to promote our club and our rides. We need volunteers to sit at the booth for two hours at a time, or longer if you are willing.
The convention is at Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. The booth will be located in the Trade Show area on the bottom level of the building. We need volunteers to sign up for both Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9, from 8:00 to 4:00 both days. Its a great chance to see old friends and meet some new people who may have questions about our organization. We are using the Sign Up Genius app for scheduling.
Please go to the link above to choose a two hour slot, or more slots if you want. It has been set up so at least 2 people can sign up for each 2 hour slot. Robert Klix and Micheale Tristram will be setting up on Thursday night. We will need help taking things down around 4:30 to 5:00 on Sat as well but there's no sign up slot for that - just show up if you can help.
Paralleling the Triple Crown, to challenge our 50- and 30-mile riders, complete all three rides in either the 50-mile or the 30-mile distance at: NV Derby 30 / 50; NASTR 30 / 50; and Red Rock Rumble 30 / 50 in the same year to be awarded either the NASTR Trifecta or the NASTR Hat Trick.
As with the Triple Crown, you may nominate yourself and your horse (for a progressively greater fee) at any time up to the start of the Red Rock Rumble. And as with the Triple Crown, same or different horse and rider will be recognized, please see ride entries for the series rides for specific details.
Awards will be given for:
Thanks to ET Thomas, a "fillable" PDF ride entry is now available for NV Derby 30 / 50. No more searching for a pen, no more trying to make your handwriting legible... :)
