Heyo, in lieu of a larger update as I am in the midst of race planning, I wanted to take some time to basically just BEG you guys to help with our race this weekend. We need everything on this sheet https://volunteersignup.org/QTYFB I understand y’all have some questions so I’ll answer them. Without a full complement of volunteers, we will not be running this race, as we will not sacrifice safety of our racers just to have an event.

  1. You don’t need flagger training to be a course marshal.

  2. You don’t need to be there right at 8am if you are just helping in the afternoon (although it helps)

  3. You don’t need any special training at all, actually.

  4. You are able to race and help out at the same time - if you are racing in the morning, you can help out in the afternoon, and vice versa. There is plenty of time to transition. Just sign up on the sheet and let me know

  5. If you are driving a car, you don’t need a big one, and your gas will be reimbursed.

  6. You will be fed. And well.

  7. If there are any other questions, you can always hit me up at president@ertc.org
