The Board has adopted a new member benefit for all you racers and potential racers. Under the policy, we are making a fund available to reimburse you for some of your registration fees. It covers traditional races AND other events so long as they post results. The policy is below. Racing is pretty expensive these days and we hope this will help. Rubber side down!
The Board has established a racer reimbursement program for the 2018 season. Reimbursement will be for race registration/entrance fees only. The pool available to qualified applicants will be $3000. If qualified requests exceed that amount, reimbursement to each applicant will be reduced prorata. Reimbursement will be limited to $200 per applicant for the season and $50 per event. In order to qualify, the applicant must meet the following criteria:
- Club member in good standing; and
- Complete 5 events which publish results. Published results include those posted on social media such as Facebook and other internet sites. Events can include road, cross, gravel, fat tire and other biking events so long as they publish results; or
- Complete 1 such event after graduation from the then current year's ARP; and
- Actively promote the Club thru social media.
Applications for reimbursement will be accepted and acted on only one time in the fall.
The Board, at its discretion and on a case by case basis, may increase the annual reimbursement for an applicant by up to $200 to cover national and international events. The total additional amount will not exceed $2000.
Look for more details, including what will be required in your application, as the season approaches.
