I honestly thought we’d not have to find riders. I thought we’d have to beat them off with a stick! But no. We still need more riders.
Anybody got any good ideas where we can find them? Do you belong to a riding club and can talk it up? Or would you like us to come and talk it up to your club? (We have a spiffy Powerpoint presentation we could bring.) Can you hang a poster at your local gas bar? Boarding barn?
I think the biggest problem is that we don’t have a huge advertising budget like “The Ride to Conquer Cancer” or “The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers”. So we have to find other ways to get the word out — because I’m sure that’s the problem. Once people know about the ride, they’re all gung-ho. If you have any ideas for me, please drop me a line.
Oh! And don’t get me wrong! We certainly have enough riders to make this ride viable, but I want it sold out. Sold out every single day. Would it not be the coolest thing ever if we were able to hire at least one full time researcher for an entire year? What if we could hire two? Would your chest stick out just a little further?
Exactly! It would be awesome!
