The Oregon 100 on September 14 near Brothers, Oregon, is promoted as a PacNorth fundraiser, and we wanted to be sure riders know just what the PacNorth is and what the money is used for.
Established as a not-for-profit organization, PacNorth helps provide funding for regional, national and international endurance championships. As an example, a North American Zone Team Challenge was held in Kentucky in 2009. PacNorth sent a team of six riders, and the funds raised at the Oregon 100 were used to pay for the team chef and the team vets to attend the event. PacNorth also tries to give back to the riders that support the PacNorth fundraiser by sponsoring speakers for the PNER convention.
If you are a member of AERC and AERC-I you are automatically a member of PacNorth. You do not need to compete internationally to be a member. PacNorth holds an annual meeting during the PNER convention, and any member can attend and have input into the organization. We hope all of you attend, and we thank you for your support of the Oregon 100. Enjoy the ride!
The trails are looking great, we've got Drs. Cassie, Willberger, and Esser lined up as vets. Preregistrations are due Sept. 1 to save $10. (Full refund if unable to attend). $20 discount for Jr. riders and 1/2 off for RMs. There's a 12 mile trail ride, too. This is a great, easy ride to move up to the next distance.
We have a wonderful lot of donated awards - gift certificates for Hought tack, Riders Warehouse and custom biothane tack by Karen Kohler. Very fun t-shirts from Riders Warehouse, buckets, leads, buckets of new e-lytes from Kentucky Performance, and more, plus the best tail end awards in the region!
