    To all our Ride Managers, volunteer staff, and riders: THANK YOU!!!!
    Once again we were able to offer and host another outstanding year of OD rides, clinics, and competition by virtue of the hard work and dedication of our AMAZING group of volunteers who are the outstanding and greatly valued backbone of our organization. Their dedication makes the competition possible, and some even give up their chance to ride in order to make it possible for others to enjoy the trails that day. So...if you are riding or crewing or even just helping a rider get through their competition next year, make it your goal to take a second here and there throughout the day and THANK A VOLUNTEER. Guaranteed it will not only brighten their day, it will brighten yours as well. :-)

    AND if you'd like to throw your hat into the fun and social Volunteer Corps for a ride (or clinic, or more!) just let us know through our Contact Form. If you have a preference - like helping at the Vet Check, spotting out on the trail, riding sweep after a division, trail clearing and marking, In/Out Timing, or camp layout - let us know as well.

    Mark your calendars for
