This Saturday is the Greensfelder Challenge Mountain Bike Race at Greensfelder Park.  DRJ Racing is generous enough to donate the proceeds of this race back to GORC along with donations we receive the day of from the mountain bike community.  St. Louis County Parks also gives us use of the park for all the hard work we do in their parks.

 

What we need from you is your help in making this a fun, safe event for everyone.  If you would like to come out and help with the following, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Early Morning Race Prep - Ride course and finish taping the intersections.  Tape will be preset, just need to make sure everything is still in place.

 

Course Marshall - Scenic Loop (2 shifts)

9:45am to 11:45am

11:45am to 1:30pm

I like to have someone at the entrance to the Scenic Loop drive for the start and then move down to where Declue crosses the Scenic Loop for the duration.  Then have someone replace them at the start of the Noon races.

 

Kid's Race is at 11:20.  We need help with following the kiddo's around the course.  Tear down the course marking as well.

 

End of Race - Course Tear down.  Remove all signs and tape.  Make it look like we were never there.

 

Food - We have a couple volunteers for this, but I'm sure they could use help when the crowds move in.

 

If you can help with any of this stuff, please let me know either here or show up the morning of the race.  The most important things I want to make sure we have covered are the course marshalls.  If I could get a couple sets of 2 or 3 people to volunteer for that, I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Bryan

Okay folks, I'm still looking for help tomorrow.  If you can spare a few hours, please come out and support the main fundraiser that helps us cover our operating costs.  If you want to race, do it or else just hang out and enjoy the day.

 

My list above is still valid.  I need help with everything.  There will be a sign-up sheet at the GORC table(s) in the morning.  If you want to come by and sign up to be a course marshall, sell stuff, etc. please do.

 

Priority #1:  The course is marked, however it needs a final run through tomorrow morning to finish it up.  What I need is someone familiar with the race course and willing to take a lap around 8-8:30 to finish taping the intersections.  It will be way more riding than marking.

 

See you tomorrow for a great day at Greensfelder!!!

I can help.  Just tell me what to do and I'll do it.


Pizza is life. Beer helps.

What time do you need people to show up in the morning? I will be there to help out. I just live down the road. I was going to ride anyway so I will bring my bike and help out then go ride and help clean up the trail after.

Thank you everyone.  We could use some people to show up around 8:30 to 9 to help with setup.  People that would help with course marshaling around 9:30.
