As Dave has said, THANK YOU!!!!

Sundays Cyclocross event wouldn't have happened without everyone's help, from the early morning setting up of the course, manning the carparks, course marshals, chip collectors, enthusiastic words of encouragement to the riders and of course those that stayed behind to help dismantle the course...

A lot of the riders came over at the end of each race and said thanks to everyone for a great event and a great course with a little mud and snow thrown in for good measure :woohoo:

What a team!!!!

On behalf of Dave, your bike club and me, Thanks!

Big thanks to everyone who helped out yesterday - it's a long day standing out there in the cold! The Scottish CX scene is booming and the races are hugely popular - however they do not happen without the help of a large number of volunteers - so thanks to all for yesterday's efforts.

Huge thanks to Colin Chisholm, another massively successful event as race organiser! Put your feet up (for a we while) Colin! :)

Marshal pack has just gone out via email. Here is the text of the email, in case anyone has not received it:

Hi all,

First up - many thanks from Colin and me for volunteering your time to help make this day of racing run on Sunday. It would not happen without your commitment to help out.

Please find attached the marshal pack - it shows where you have been allocated for the day, and includes a map of the courses with the marshal points marked. These points will also be signposted on race day to help you navigate in the park.

You can also download the marshal pack from this link: www.dropbox.com/s/tl6xxbtkj4p7gcw/2017%20Plean%20CX%20Marshal%20Pack.pdf?dl=0

For those of you who have offered to help with course set-up, please can you be on site at 6 am?

Racing starts at 10 am - marshal briefing will be at the race sign-on at 9.30 am.

For those allocated to the car parks - you will need to be in position by ~9 am - marshal briefing not necessary. For those on car park duty - we will use the Plean Country Park car park first, and when that fills up, please start directing competitors down to the car park at Plean Precast (down the hill towards Plean village).

We will have relief marshals to allow people to take a break. I am also keen for those marshals allocated to car park duty to be able to swap out with those on course marshal duty. It is a long day and it is unfair to expect those on car park duty to stay there all day - please offer to swap out for a bit if you are a course marshal.

It will be cold - so please make sure you come dressed for that. Currently the course is quite icy, but if it thaws between now and then, it will also be muddy, so please also come prepared for that.

I will have vouchers for the marshals so that you can get a hot drink and a burrito from Bonnie Burrito.

See you tomorrow!

Dave

Thanks Heather.

Marshal pack should go out tonight, maybe tomorrow morning at the latest.

We are still on the lookout for a couple of volunteers, just to make everyone's life a bit easier. Please post up if you can help out on Sunday.

Can help marshall, plus a non cycling friend. She has a train to catch after lunch so we need to be away by 12.30pm. The 2 of us can do a 2 hour stint from 10.30 - 12.30, preferably stationed at the same marshall point. Hope this helps.

Racing in 50+ but happy to marshal after the race - even if just to let someone get away for a bit

Hi all,

SBC are putting on a cyclocross race at Plean Coutnry Park again this year, with Colin Chisholm organising things once again. It's on Sunday 26th November and the day of racing will run from 9 am to 3 pm

We'll need around 18 helpers in total: 3 car park marshals, 5 course marshals, 2 to remove timing chips at the finish, 3 at sign-on plus, ideally, 4 or 5 relief marshals to allow people to have a break (and to have their free burrito and hot drink!) during the day.

We'll also need as many people as possible to help with course set up at 6.30 am. (and to take it down again at the end of the day).

Please post up if you can help out, either with marshalling and/or course set-up.

Thanks in advance

Dave
