19 Club Members in Tour be Bowness!

We've got a lot of Speed Theorists racing in the Road Race, Hill Climb, and Criterium this weekend! The best events to go watch are the Hill Climb at COP since you can bring the kids and hike up the road and cheer like mad and then the best opportunity is the Criterium as it is coupled with a big Bowness Street Festival so it is really family friendly and extremely fun to attend.

Good luck everyone!

And we'll be seeing all our club members out next weekend either volunteering or racing at the JayLap Road Race. Please see the post below to sign up for volunteering!

Jason Lapierre Memorial Dog Pound Road Race -- Volunteer Sign Up

SPOTS ARE STARTING TO FILL UP. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS. THERE IS STILL A BIG, BIG NEED FOR DRIVERS

STC folks,

Here's the link to the Volunteer sign up page for the Dog Pound Road Race on Sunday, August 9: http://speedtheoryteam.ivolunteer.com/event_004

Races don't happen without volunteers. PLEASE CONSIDER EITHER VOLUNTEERING OR PROVIDING A VOLUNTEER. Here's a brief summary of what each role does:

Picking up food: Pretty straightforward. Head to the local Tim Hortons or Costco, pick up food, and bring it to the hall. We'll give you a list, a budget, and reimburse you the costs.

Course Marshalls: You'll be at a corner helping to make sure all racers make the corner safely. One corner on this course is very fast, so we're hoping to have at least three people there. Hopefully you'll be able to work on your tan.

Drivers: This is a big need. Comm cars will have a you and an official in your car, and you'll be following the race making sure everyone follows the rules and plays nice, this is a cool perspective of the race. Wheel cars will carry spare wheels for racers that flat, you don't have to do anything but stop for someone that needs a tire, no experience necessary. Two cars per category.

Course Set-Up/Tear Down: Head out and help set up the course with cones, message boards, the tent for the finish line, etc. You can do this and race.

Hall Set-Up/Tear Down: Get the hall ready and clean up at the end of the day. Many hands make light work...

Registration Help: Help the ABA Technical Delegate hand out race numbers and make sure everyone signs on on race day. You could still race if you help out here!

And I'm sure I'll come up with more tasks...

Our last WNS race THIS Wednesday.

Club, it is our last Wednesday Night Series event THIS week July 15th before Peloton take over the last 5 races. Alan would like to hold a fun event that would involve an Australian Pursuit, but needs a few more volunteers than normal. Please consider lending a couple hours if you raced Rundle Mountain and aren't quite ready to race again, or maybe bring a partner and get them to help out for 2 hours. It is a very easy volunteer commitment.

Alan has devised a cool course but it has a few more corners than normal. So come out and lend a hand. More info on the course here. Please email Alan here to throw your volunteer hat in the ring.
