VOLUNTEERS
We need you. If you are keen to help we are still looking for:

2 people to help with start area setup (7:30am sunday)
2 traffic marshalls for race 1 (9-10:30ish sunday)
1 traffic marshall for race 2 (11-12:30ish sunday)

We require traffic marshalls to stand at two designated spots on the course. This would be ideal for someone not racing or someone who races but can be around for the other race. If you are available to help set up or pack up or assist with anything else please get in touch with Aurelia Strozik via email: racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au
