Welly Mtbc Dh Series - Volunteers Req - Long Gully

Postby Mike_the_Hippy on Sat 28/Aug/10 2:44pm

Well its been a long time coming but finally we are gonna go for a wicked downhill series this year.

gonna be three rounds :

RD1 - Maidstone 19th September
RD2 - Karori Park 3rd October
RD3 - Long Gully 6&7th November (part of AKDH series)


We are still sorting out a huge number of details and will do a proper event release next week. Alot more details will be confirmed then.

But for now we would like to do a bit of a shout out to see if any one would be keen to help lend us a hand.
Like most events , the people and friends around us want to partisipate in the events so it can be hard to string enough people together.
So anyone is welcome to come help out!
Parents and partners of riders make really really good helpers too :thumbsup: (dont be shy , ask away)

Here's a list of tasks that are suited to your talents:

Van Drivers - Could mean picking up and droping off to hire companys.
Truck Drivers - just for driving at the event - Could mean Pick up/Drop Off - but will need drivers with HT licence.
Track Marshalls - Ensuring the saftey of riders on track (blow a whistle, stop riders when needed and rind for first aid help when needed)
Registration - Accepting people entry form and processing them (2-3 hours)
BBQ - 2-3 hours of selling food & drinks - this makes for a good fundraiser for the club.
General turn up early and ask if anything needs to be done - first 3 hours is always chaos for organisers.

Also at the the end of any event there will be a ton of tidying up to do, not just rubbish & track but vans too.
Feel free to do your part to ensure that running events is a postive exiperiance for the few giving up many many hours of their riding time, trust me they will be very thankfull.

Please keep in mind that a bit of advance warning of your willingness to help will make the world of differance as to how much sleep the organisers will get :)

Any pledges of support with home contact details (email/phone) can be sent to: Volunteers@wmtbc.org.nz

Thanks for your time ,hope to see you at the races :thumbsup:

Cool

You only need to race the rounds that you want to, but if you want overall points for the series you'll need to race all three.

So if you only want to enter for long gully, that's fine.

yea sorry about that, i busted that post out prior to jumping in a taxi to the airport for a holiday. sorry i dont do email and phone on holiday.

But yea got everyones messages, thanks heaps for your replies , ill need a few days to back into the swing of things and find out where we are short staffed.

Before i left richard out maidstone seem to have most things on track and sounding very much in control as per usual.

The karori park race is looking abit thin on the ground for helpers, so spread the word on that one.

The November race will be a biggie for us so its nice to get a few welcome supporters for that race. still gonna need some more ,especially truck drivers. Plenty of time to work on that one though.

By the way we give free entry to the groms that rope their parents into driving :thumbsup:

Anyway thanks to all that have replied so far :thumbsup: awsome!

Thanks

hey everyone ,less than two weeks till karori and we are really running short of voluenteers.

currently we could do with some people to help with:

driving , pickup/drop off of hire vans (task would suit racer)
registation , BBQ Managment, track marshalling ,etc.

Also as per usual we always need help setting up first thing ,turning up at 8:30am and pledging some support will be great.

alson please ask if you can help after the race as there is a ton of cleaning up and gear to that will need to go up to the gully for the next race.

Cheers

There is an XC race the same which will swallow quite a few people who would otherwise offer.
