`Calendar of Events

The following is a listing of the events tentatively scheduled throughout the State. Confirmed sanctioned rides will have an "*S" when the fees have been paid to the State Sanctioning Chair. Until the rides are sanctioned, please contact the region chairs for information. Please note the dates of the State Quarterly meetings. No Trail Trials will be sanctioned on those weekends. Trail Trials are put on by various clubs and region chairpersons.

If you are interested in managing or helping with a ride, please contact your region chairpersons for more information. A package of materials is available to assist you with every aspect of managing a ride. Just add volunteers and, presto, you have a successful ride. Click here for the Ride Manager Guidelines

Help in the way of obstacle judging is greatly appreciated as well and being an excellent way to learn. Your experience can also be credited toward the requirements for becoming a Senior Judge. In addition, most region programs give points toward year-end high point programs for obstacle judging. Be sure to check your region rules or ask your region chairperson Region Chairs. If you would like to be on a mailing list for any particular region, please contact Victor Pedroza through his email.

Archived Calendars and Ride Results are available here.
