All members are requested to consider offering their services to marshal at least once each season.
As an added incentive, as well as doing your part for the club, everyone helping out on the evening gets free tea and cake
and a free ride on your next Tuesday 10 !
Rota organizer: Mac Adcock
|Signing On||Help riders sign on.|
Take their money and hand out numbers.
Write rider names in the “blue book” for the Recorder and on the large “Results sheet”.
Ensure the “Blue book” and post it notes are taken to the start prior to the first rider starting.
|Results||Write the times on the large “Result sheet” as they come in.|
Collect race numbers.
|Usually the Signing On and Results duties are done by the same person, but you can always split it with a friend. If you engineer it right then you could both get to ride.|
|Turn Marshal||Collect 2 large triangular “Cycle event” signs from HQ to put up at the turn island. A vehicle will be required to transport the signs therefore this role is unsuitable for a person attending on a bike.|
Watch / direct the riders as they go around the turn.
|Pusher-Off||Collect 2 large triangular “Cycle event” signs from HQ to put up at Pesto island. Hold up riders at the start.||6:15pm|
|Second Watch||Stand at the start and say 3,2,1, Go…||6:15pm|
|Recorder||Sit with the timekeeper at the finish to record the race times in the “blue book”.|
This job requires a little maths, but is pretty straightforward. Ask Mac for instructions.
Depending on who is doing the signing on, it may help if you write the names in the book.
|Time Keeper||Usually done by Trevor Page, but occasionally we need to cover while Trev is on holiday.|
If you fancy giving it a go then get in touch with Mac.
Below is our Marshal Rota. Please contact Hcrc mac via Facebook Messenger if you wish to volunteer.
