Autumn RR - a fabulous event - please can you help
Hi folks, the Weaver Valley Autumn RR on Sunday October 11th is going ahead, with a full field (and some WVCC riders in action), guaranteed good weather (!) and a new amended/longer course, kindly created by Graham Gregory (in response to Cheshire Police's request that all road races should have laps of a minimum of 10 miles).
The course HQ is Wincham Community Centre as usual, and the race starts at 10, with the HQ opening at 8.30, and marshals asked to arrive at 9.
Our club is renowned throughout the region for the races we promote, and these depend entirely on the support of members to marshal. You are always brilliant at signing up for this one, and this year we'll need more of you than ever because of the longer lap.
Garry Brown is organising the course and marshals for us this year, so please can you indicate your support here, or e mail him direct on email@example.com
Put Elaine and I down for marshaling
All being well, I should be racing 🙂
Sorry but Caroline and I will be in Majorca that day. I hope the race goes well.
Gary, I can help out first thing, but have to leave there by 11am latest as I have to get youngest to a senior colts rugby game at 12:30,, so happy to help with signing on, or making tea or being an extra bod marshalling for the first hour of the race..
Still in need of help for this event. Please let us know ASAP if you can help.
Thanks in advance
A massive thank you to everyone involved in helping today - a huge and impressive turnout from WVCC. I received lots of compliments from riders about the organisation of the event, and the fact that they felt well protected out on the road. So whatever you did to help, whether clearing thorns this morning, marshalling, helping at HQ, putting signs out, or the 101 jobs that need doing to make a race happen, THANK YOU!! I'm really conscious that this involves everyone giving up their Sunday morning ride and it's hugely appreciated by the riders.
