cx rider days, 11498, down 22% for 31 events, down from five YoY
#hotlinetake : bet there are sooo many that are basically pay-to-play groups (looking at you, Hot Spandex Model Teams)
JD reminds #nebrasummit that every region is different for membership requirements
also Colin can be INDEMNIFIED and theres insurance for that so sue away folks (don't actually do that)
*mike N might bust an artery here
cool anecdotal example of targeting female runners to try Cross (S Weigard?) then offering discounted reg
JD tosses out a Club of the Year Award as an incentive
presidency has changed you, yo #nebrasummit
whether or not the discussion focuses on quality of events, this is a nice shift towards that as a the driving KPI for events
this is HUGE, because John Frey knows specific logistics relevant to bike race events, which is money/time saved
best possible step of @nebranews for being there for promoters
JD says yes, because it's a memento of an event. if you only do a few events and are social media-ing your event, the little extra to customize is a damm good deal
Hope you like Twitter, Jesse!
Hodges say it was a call to Rob, asking if he had references, Rob said, "Why not me?"
They get a free coupon to a discounted membership code!
Never heard of it? welcome to promoting
brush up and get ready if you're a last-minute promoter- might be a new UI #nebrasummit
premiums went up. two claims this year, nothing a 'surprise' if you promote, but so's not crashing your car. It happens, that's why you have insurance, but if you cash in on that premiums go up
JD reminds everyone to ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE THE EVENT
public question by meeee on what mechanisms are available from USAC for this #nebrasummit
maybe it's the beer talking, but I almost don't want to talk about this, because it's a stomach dropping topic, hearing this stuff. sooo pic time:
he sits on the phone and talks with RD who are crying because a rider died at their event and not only did someone DIE the RD has massive bills now to pay out from insurance claims that will financially break them #nebrasummit
He sits for an hour with this riders family
Then, in his words, he “sits before a jury and explains what happened”
"This is a risky sport, and we are here to help you mitigate risks"
totally didn't go to the bathroom to puke #hugyourracefriends
Officials also pool in their event availability. These logistics, this "jigsaw" puzzle, is part of the process

Concentration on growing ground officials, not doing a new motor officials class. Open request for USAC C Officials from USAC clubs, send interested members, it's on BikeReg:
what's a good hashtag for the NEBRA officials? Truthfully, it's a different pool than promoters. Weigards comment the process is more of an apprenticeship
Really, what better way to save costs than having a team member double up as a USAC Official ? Yeah they'd have to pay to become one, but that's both cheaper and easier to coordinate that booking
