NETRA EXPO AND AWARDS BANQUET
January 11, 2014
It’s time to celebrate the successes of the 2013 NETRA riding season. Attached are the details for the upcoming EXPO and Awards Banquet – please read carefully!
LOCATION: Holiday Inn, Taunton, MA , 700 Myles Standish Blvd (Exit 9 off of I-495) Reservations can be made by calling the hotel directly: 508-823-0430 and asking for the NETRA block or going to www.holidayinn.com, choosing the Taunton property and using the code: NET. Rooms are $99.95 per night (plus taxes). THIS RATE IS ONLY GOOD FOR RESERVATIONS MADE THROUGH 12/10/2013 – after this date the hotel’s normal rates will apply.
EVENTS: Plan to join us Friday evening (January 10) for an informal get-together with Rich Lafferty and his son, as they will share their off-season training tips, bike maintenance guidelines, development of riding skills, and answer questions. This is a great opportunity to do some low-key networking and socializing over snacks and drinks. Check into the hotel on Friday and join us for some arm chair racing!
Saturday’s expowill begin at 10:00 (new time) and in addition to the vendors and a vintage bike display, we will have some friendly Enduro vs Hare Scramble competition, scholarship raffles, and a SWAP area. Plan to spend the day. (If you are interested in being a vendor, click here.)

Family members may attend the program for free, but all who want to eat must have paid for a meal. No tickets will be mailed prior to the event – check in at the door. NO TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.
Awards Banquet: The Evening Awards Banquet will begin with a cocktail hour at 5:30 on Saturday. Tickets are available on line through the NETRA Store for $41.00 through January 6th. Again this year it will be a buffet meal. Tickets will not be mailed prior to the event – pick up your dinner ticket at the NETRA Booth during the Expo. Limited tickets MAY be available the day of the event, but to be safe, order your ticket ahead of time. For those attending the Awards only portion of the evening, the doors will open at 7:45 p.m.
Jackets: This year jackets will be given to the top 3 riders in each category (top 5 for Jr.’s/Minis) – provided the other criteria in the rule book are met (number of events ridden, work credit, etc.). The final results must be ratified by the Competition Committee after all events are posted, BUT, given the tight time frame for getting the jackets into the embroidery shop so that the work can be completed, we are asking that if you think you are eligible to receive a jacket, go to the JACKETS link at the bottom of the NETRA website, and complete the order form. This does not guarantee that you will receive a jacket, but it does guarantee that, should you be eligible, you will have your order placed. Jacket orders must be placed no later than November 22. You will receive a confirmation of your order. If you have any questions, please contact Crystal Arsenault: email@example.com.
Trail Bosses – go to the same location and order your jacket!
