Join 2013 USEA AREA II Year End Awards!
The 2013 Registration is now open so go ahead and join and have some extra fun in 2013! Remember this program differs slightly from the National program. Please tell a friend to join as well, the more applicants to better the prizes! It’s a good idea to read the rules and review eligibility, how points are calculated, fees, and deadlines. The 2013 Forms and Rules are now available on USEA Area II website under Points and Awards Program - FORMS. The Points system follows USEA points, so if you participate USEA Area II Junior/YR or Amateur division, you will be awarded upgraded points in accordance to USEA rules, check out the rules! There are a few additional exemptions to the in Area II three to one in area rule for 2013.
Third Year: For all you TB owners/eventers! We have again a very generous USEA Area II contributor, Judith Lamb, she is again sponsoring a special TB award (donating a silver plate and beautiful cooler). If you sign up for the 2013 USEA Area II Year End Awards Program with your TB you are automatically eligible for this Special Award. A separate points tally will apply for TB's the "smurfs" are equally eligible at all levels (Beginner Novice through Advanced). We will be assigning separate points system from YEA for this Special TB Award - placings 1-6 and assigning points 6-1. We can not thank Judith enough for the very generous sponsorship!
For a mere $20 registration fee you can be part of the fun! (unless you register late than it’s a little more)
If you are registering for the 2013 USEA Area II Year End Awards Program, please don’t forget, the program has a “Volunteer Incentive” component. Our sport can only exist with everybody getting involved so please volunteer, this can be by volunteering as a fence judging, scoring, scribing, set up, take down, stuffing packets, or really just about anything directly relating to eventing. The total hour requirement can be completed in any variety of ways. For example, volunteering for one day at an event, or two half days at different events. So when you plan your 2013 competition calendar, schedule to do some volunteering of at least 8 hours during the current calendar year, preferably at an Area II recognized event. All you have to do is contact an organizer to find out how you can help. They are waiting for your call! Please don’t make us chase you for a volunteer confirmation, volunteering can be just as rewarding as competing!
It is the rider’s responsibility to check this website during the season and verify that the points shown are accurate. All of the points tracking are done manually, and mistakes can be made, so please contact me with any possible discrepancies.
