Steve Langley and Kerry Byrne from the Three Waters High Country Holidays, are again pleased to host the weeklong Great Crackin’ Cancer – Cancer Council NSW Horse Trail Ride, which runs from April 13th thru 20th.
This event will see many of the 2012 riders coming back for the 2013 ride. The ride will be run out of Three Waters, which is a 1200 acre property situated 15 kilometers from Glen Innes, in the picturesque New England region of NSW and will take in large cattle and sheep properties surrounding Three Waters.
At this stage, the number of riders will be cut off at 50. A “cut off” date is yet to be decided however riders that attended in 2012 and their friends will get first opportunity. A deposit of $50 will apply to all riders.
Refunds will be available:(a) to those riders that miss the cut off.(b) to all riders, if the ride is cancelled and(c) to riders who can’t attend, should the organizers postpone the ride to a later date (for example, due to wet weather)
INSURANCE: For rider insurance purposes, all riders must be paid up members of Trail Riding Australia (or join Trail Riding Australia, to become paid up members) at the time of the ride (from April 13 to April 20 – 2013). To obtain membership for 2013 contact Trail Riding Australia. For your own benefit, please ensure you clarify all aspects of membership insurance coverage with Trail Riding Australia.
COST OF RIDE – SPONSORSHIP INCENTIVE: The Crackin’ Cancer–Cancer Council cost for riders will be $200. In saying that, riders can seek sponsorship money to help pay for all, or part of their 2013 Crackin’ Cancer-Cancer Council ride cost component – that being the $200 ONLY. For those wishing to participate, it will be on a 50-50 basis. 50% of the sponsor money you raise will be a donation and 50% will go towards sponsoring your ride cost.
Example: If you want to cover your full Crackin’ Cancer-Cancer Council cost of $200, you will need to raise $400 ($200 as a donation and $200 as sponsorship). If you wish to cover half your ride cost, which would be $100, then you will need to raise $200 ($100 as a donation and $100 as sponsorship). The sponsorship benefit is $200 maximum. This means, that If a rider raises more than $400, that rider can still only receive a maximum of $200 in sponsorship. All money raised above $400 will be a donation.
If you are interested, please send a self addressed envelope and a note requesting a Sponsorship Form to:
Crackin’ Cancer-Cancer Council NSW.
PO Box 531,
Any donation money over $2 is tax deductible, this means the 50% donation ONLY – NOT the 50% that goes towards rider sponsorship. This MUST be made clear to ALL sponsors/doners. Riders PLEASE tick (yes) on the Sponsor/Doner Form for any doner who requires a receipt that will enable them to claim their 50 % donation money, on their tax.
The Cancer Council will send a receipt to the address stated on the sponsorship/donation form. Please write ALL sponsor/doner particulars down so they can be clearly understood.
