We are no longer accepting payment for 2023. We will reopen payment in 2024. However, if you are not a member you still need to submit the waiver in order to ride with us.
To join the SOBs there are 2 steps: Sign Combined Waiver and Payment. NOTE: The Waiver has been modified for 2023 so even if you have signed it before, it would be valuable for you to read it again. The major change is that it is a combined waiver for both Covid and liability, but there are other wording changes as well. Membership dues for 2023 are $20 via PayPal and $25 if you insist on cash or check.
To sign your 2023 SOB Combined Waiver just fill out the form below, entering your email address as your signature, which means you have agreed to the waiver. The wording of the waiver has changed slightly for 2023.
READ THE WAIVER (below) so you understand what you are agreeing to. At the bottom, fill in the form boxes. Name, date, email address for signature, cell number, select whether you are ok with being listed on the SOB membership list (yes,no), and enter your street address. The date will automatically be set to the current date. The yes / no question defaults to yes but you can change it to no.
When you are done filling in the form you must Agree to it to submit it. The form will be submitted to the SOBs and you will get an email confirmation. New members NOTE: Check your spam folder for email if you have not gotten any confirmations from our site. We suggest you whitelist *@santafesobs.com so that you receive our emails.
