Default Changes to the Annual Rideout

AR changes

Iíve been thinking about the AR and the problems it seems to have generated over the last couple of years. Whilst I would always prefer a democratic solution to choosing the date, venue and organiser, it would seem that this just causes too many arguments and conflicts. So I think itís time for a change.

Going forward from AR13 onwards, the plan is that Iíll request tenders from anyone interested in organising the AR event. The organiser can choose their own date, venue, rideout route, camp site etc. So totally flexible. Iíll collate the tenders and discuss them with the Mods and weíll come to a decision based on what looks the most appealing, whether weíve been to that part of the UK recently and if we think that the organiser has considered the sheer workload involved. So itís not unlike the bidding system that the Olympics use.

I would request tenders via a PM in November, this will give the Mods and I a month to consider the successful candidate. Iíll then announce the winner in the new year, so that the organiser and attendees can start to put the plans into motion. Meantime if your thinking of organising AR13, you have a few months to plan your tender.

Regards

Does this mean you're expecting to be wined and dined and generally outrageously bribed by those tendering?

HaHa. that's the one thing I would not be tempted to do. It would cause right fuss amongst the clans.
