Taking A Leap
I'm trying something new. I'm done with the amateurs getting the shitty end of the stick. We pay all the big entries while the pros have their clients pay for them. Prices go up, we are left in the dust. I'm going to do something about it to help out the ammy riders in Ontario. Since the events claim they can't lower costs or offer good prizes, I am going to start a Non Profit Organization dedicated to helping fund entry fees of amateur event riders in Ontario. I have a lot of ideas on how to raise money. It will be a lot of work, a big project, but it's worth a shot. I have no idea what I am doing. But I can learn.
We already have a Board of Directors. I started a Website. For those with web talent I would really appreciate your input and ideas. If anyone wants to donate time/talent to help create a better logo I am open to this. Also images for the website would be appreciated ;)
Ontario Amateur Event Riders Fund
If you have ideas on how to help fundraise, comments on who should "qualify" for funding, or any other ideas, I would LOVE your input. I know you are all ammys like me, and your voices are the most important.
Hopefully this works out, and we can save some fellow riders some money this summer! The sky is the limit. Wish me luck :)
