Re-posting ride organizer Mike A’s post to the google group:
There’s a small update to NER policies and RUSA membership: you must have your permanent (digits only, not starting with T) RUSA membership in order to start an NER event. We don’t want to have to turn anyone away, but we will do so if we can’t verify your membership. If you are planning to ride this coming weekend, the time to check your RUSA membership is RIGHT NOW.
If you are joining or renewing to ride a ride within the next few weeks, you should pay with PayPal as checks can get delayed in the mail.
This is an administrative requirement of RUSA for us to be accredited to put on events. If the cost of joining RUSA plus the cost of attending your first event is prohibitive to you joining us, please do contact us; we don’t want cost to stop someone from trying the sport!
Here’s hoping for an exciting and enjoyable year of Randonneuring! Many new and classic events are in the works for events starting in the early Spring.
Details on the NER 2022 Membership, a season pass, etc will be posted a few weeks before the first event, currently scheduled for March 5th.
A 2022 calendar for RUSA approved events can be found on NER’s results page. Details for these events will be added to the list on the right column a few weeks before each event and updated periodically.
As a reminder, a good place to discuss upcoming events and other randonneuring topics is NER’s Discussion List/Group.
