Wow, time has slipped away and the Tranquility Tire Tantrum is next week! This is a special mtb weekend celebrating the 20th year of the Psycowpath series, with a TT at L&C, and STXC and XC at Tranquility. See http://www.psycowpath.com/ for race info.
BMCC is host for the STXC and XC. Besides wanting the club well represented in the races, we need volunteers to help put the race on.
First come, first choice to serve. Or just tell me what time period(s) you can help and I will place you where needed.
Prerace:Friday night - mark race courses.
Saturday 11:00 - setup tents, generator, etc.
Saturday 19:30 - teardown tents, generator, etc.
Sunday 10:00 - setup tents, generator, etc.
During Saturday races:
11:30-18:00 Registration - two people to have riders sign waiver and get bib number and timing chip.Will need multiple shifts or rotations.
12:30-19:30 Results production - two people to be trained on chip timing system. Working with computers to record chip timing and generate results. They will work with two USAC officials.Hopefully, can rotate or take breaks. See Ryan for more info.
Course marshalls - Saturday to keep non racers off course and direct racers to registration. One position needs different people through the day:
announcer/gopher: keep it lively, make race start time announcements, ask finish racers to exit course and get new racers lined up. time between stxc races will be at a premium.
During Sunday races:
10:30-13:30 Registration - two people to have riders sign waiver and get bib number and timing chip.
11:30-16:30 Results production - two people to be trained on chip timing system. Working with computers to record and generate results. They will work with two USAC officials.
12:00-13:00 Course marshalls - three people
announcer/gopher: keep it lively, make race start time announcements.
13:15-13:40 kid's race director - call up, run, and award kids race
kid's race trail leader and sweeper.
kid's race course marshalls - two or three
16:30 Course tear down: a crew to ride course afterwards & pick up markingTeardown tents, generator, etc.
Your help is greatly appreciated. As you may know, Dan and BMCC bought a Scag zero turn mower to help maintain Tranquility trail. I pledged the profits from the TTT races to pay the club’s half over the next five years. A good turnout requires a good group of volunteers to help racers enjoy their experience and want to come back next year.
