Hammer Nutrition Round 3

AMBC-Hammer-Series

THIS WEEKEND!

The final round of the Hammer Nutrition 4 Hour Enduros is on this Sunday 21st June 2015.

The venue is Craigburn Farm. The gate will be open, so parking is available track side. Make sure you park West (further down the road than the) of the first trail head – this avoids disturbing local residents.

Race starts at 9am with sign-on opening at 8am.

Online registration only, closes at 10:00am on Saturday 20th June 2015

Volunteers required for this round:

  • BBQ cookers – if you can turn a snag that’s what we need. Ideally two people for this – 1 x cooker, 1 x money handler
  • Track pack up – the more, the merrier!

If you can help out in any capacity send an email to info@ambc.asn.au (our Volunteers coordinator is on leave for this race).

Course map is:

and course marking will be happening at some point on Saturday.

Sadly, the next episode of FatChat will not be available until after this race – the author is away for the next two weeks. I’m sure they’ll make something up to give this round some coverage though!

Hammer Nutrition 4 hr – Round 2

enduro 2015 poster horizontalThe next Hammer Nutrition 4 hour enduro is approaching – Sun 31st May.

Entries are open and available by clicking here. Links are also available on the Calendar page along with the rest of the AMBC MTB season. Registration will close at 10:am on Saturday 30th May. If you are struggling to get to an electronic device to register in the next week send a quick email (ironic?) to timing@ambc.asn.au or call the club phone.

The next round is set to be held at Prospect Hill – directions available here.

If you’re interested in lending a hand to your club on the day of the race, then let racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au know in advance so we can plan for it.

Free BBQ, drink, and transferable race entry for all volunteers.

We’re looking for people to help out with:

  • Track set up. This will occur from 09:30am Saturday 30th May. Contact racedirector@ambc.asn.au to register your interest.
  • Track pack up. Crucial. Unfortunately the arrows don’t decompose and we have to go around pick them all up. We’ve got scientists working on it, but for now it takes good old fashioned humans to go around and pick up the bunting/arrows.
  • Holding down the registration desk. The wind can be a bugger and the more people we have holding onto the paper the more people can sign on to the race and receive their race plate and transponder.

On a seperate note (or two):

  1. The elite winter series table has been formed and is available on the results page.
  2. Chelsea has managed to print off another Fat Chat. Not sure where she found the time in the last four weeks, but it’s another cracker:

For now, that’s all!
