predicted retirement of eventing officials

The Licensed Officials Committee did a study and discovered that over the next 10 years, eventing may lose 55 percent of USEF “r” judges and 45 percent of “r” TDs as well as 66 percent of “R” officials due to retirement.The program now in place for training new officials; is a good one; I have attended the first part, labeled "classroom" and found it very educational; the USEA did an excellent job of pulling together/ compiling the information needed by officials in order to officiate at all three phases ; My complaint, individual/ personal hurdle is transportation to complete the apprenticeship requirement;with 28 years of eventing experience I have much to give back; but, had found it thus far impossible to find transportation to the events, they do tend to be located outside the service area of local paratransit service; obviously, I would prefer to go with my power wheelchair but, could take the lighter manual chair if a helper could be found to push the chair through the grass; Are there any local service groups/ clubs who could help? in this matter? because of the difficulty I was finding in locating such assistance I had set the plan to become licensed "on the back burner" until a later time when I might have a wheelchair and someone to drive it/ me, and my power wheelchair, could anyone help me in this area? I could reimburse$e for gas /or with lesson(s)/ clinics Centered Riding TTOUCH ; given this statement regarding the large percentage of licensed officials retiring, I need to get back on track
