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 a free ride on your next Tuesday 10 !

Rota organiser:

Who?What?When?
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.
5:30pm
ResultsWrite the times on the large “Result sheet” as they come in.
Collect race numbers.
6:45pm
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 MarshalCollect 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.
6:15pm
Pusher-OffCollect 2 large triangular “Cycle event” signs from HQ to put up at Pesto island. Hold up riders at the start.6:15pm
Second WatchStart 1st rider away at 1 minute past the official start time.

Stand at the start and call riders to the start and give countdown warnings for: 30sec, 15sec, 10, 5, 4, 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 Mark or Eleanor for instructions.
Depending on who is doing the signing on, it may help if you write the names in the book.
6:15pm
Time KeeperThe timekeeper is responsible for recording the time of arrival at the finish.  He/She will work with the second watch.  1st rider away will be followed by the next rider 1 minute later.

Start 1st rider at 1 minute past the official start time.

Have sufficient time to get to finish point before 1st rider’s approach with the recorder.

If you fancy giving it a go then get in touch with Mark or Eleanor
6:15pm
