Once again, the Sea Otter folks are looking for course marshals for races to be held April 12-14. Team Wrong Way and MBOSC has again agreed to organize volunteers for the Dual Slalom, and possibly other events depending on how many of you donate your time. The DS schedule is:
- Thurs, Apr 12: 8am-3pm
- Fri, Apr 13: 7:30am-Noon
- Sat, Apr 14: 8:30am-4pm
The first priority is to fill the Dual Slalom roles. Half-day requests (morning/afternoon) will be accommodated, if possible, with the morning shift getting the food bag.
We can also supply volunteers for the Downhill event: Fri, 7:30am-6pm
As well as the all-new Super D event: Thurs, 8am-4pm
Volunteers receive an event t-shirt, lunch (higher quality promised this year), festival pass for the entire weekend, and the warm fuzzy feeling that you are contributing to an exciting and important event on the domestic and international racing calendars. Volunteers do NOT
receive a free race entry this year, sorry.
If you are interested in volunteering this year, please respond and include the days/times you can commit, shirt size, and sandwich preference (turkey/ham/roast-beef/veggie). If you are flexible with events and/or times, please indicate that as well. I’ll send updates to you every so often to let you know what I have you down for, and to relay more details as they become known to me.
The SOC has added more events this year, and spread-out amateur events a little. Check out their web site www.seaotterclassic.com for details, but I know they have added SuperD, BMX, and Adventure racing. The village area has also been reorganized to offer a better experience for everyone. Seems like they’re really trying to make the event interesting and fun for more people.
Hope to see you all out there!
