VOLUNTEER MOUNTAIN MAIDEN
The Mountain Maiden is an important race in the Alberta circuit, and a showcase for the Spin Sisters. This is one of the most well attended XC mountain bike races in Alberta, and it's the most important race for the SS race team. Most of the women in our Learn To Race program will do this as their first ever race! Our club is starting to show up on the podium in many women's categories. Hosting this race allows Spin Sisters to give back to the mountain biking community, and is great promotion for our club. But we need lots of volunteers to make this event a success!
Volunteering gives racers a chance to give back to the cycling community, and innocent bystanders a chance to witness the mayhem firsthand. There will be great food and prizes drawn for volunteers as well so come on out!
Remember that volunteers DO NOT have to be members of Spin Sisters so drag your friends and family along with you too!
Please sign up for this event so I know what positions are filled and what is still available. Thank you!
What volunteer positions need to be filled?
Sign-On: Help set up the sign-on table, as the athletes arrive check names and give out race packages
Course Set-Up: People are needed Friday afternoon to set up the course tape and markings in the stadium area. One person needed on Saturday morning to ride the course checking signage and condition.
Volunteer Coordinator: Be on-site to direct various volunteers to their required places. Communicate with volunteers on the day of the race, to ensure all course marshals are in place.
Starting, Timing & Results: Sit at the timing tent and help with racer identification and timing.
Course Marshalls: You will be stationed on the course, watching racers come through and calling for help in case of injury or other emergency. This is the most entertaining volunteer job since you usually get to watch the most technical sections of the race.
