OLD SKOOL TT on 04/07/2012

Postby Andy D » Sun Jun 10, 2012 8:39 am

Folks,

I am looking for helpers and assistance for our upcoming 'Old Skool' TT on Wednesday 4th July 2012 at 7pm.

HQ is the Ythanbank Community Hall.

I need helpers for Marshal duties, hudder up and timing.

Due to road works we have to use a revised course and it will be as follows:

2 x laps of course starting at entrance to Quarry (just after sharp right hand bend at Ythanbank over the bridge), towards Methlick, left turn at Raxton junction (cross roads) over Raxton to emerge on Ellon-Tarves road (confined 10 course), turn left towards Ellon, left turn at top of hill (after section between avenue of trees on confined course) back towards top of 'Shire Brae overlooking Ythanbank. Through start line (Quarry entrance) for 2nd lap to finish at a point just prior to the descent of the 'Shire Brae. (approximately 11.5 miles)

If someone can 'map' that course with Map my ride or similar, that would be very helpful - I can't seem to get any of that cr@p to work on my computer (probably my computing ability).

Need marshals for Left turn to Raxton, Left turn after Raxton onto Tarves Road (2 marshals here would be best), Left turn back to 'Shire Brae, Bottom of 'Shire Brae. (5 marshals minimum)

Need several folk to assist with timing/recording as we are having a 2 lap race, so need someone on start timing, someone on finish timing and a recorder (at least 2 but probably 3 people for timing)

Also need folk to make tea, manage the sign on etc (Carol is taking over as organiser on the night only and I am Commissaire - it seems)

All help would be welcome and please let me known on here and/or via E-Mail if you can assist.

Full 'rules' for Old Skool event will be published shortly.

Thanks,
Andy D

Hi Andy

I had intended riding this one, but I've just buckled the wheel on my auld bike and I doubt if I'll get it sorted out in time, so I'll be willing to help. Not sure what I can do, but willing to try anything with guidance.

The only slight issue is that I'm starting a new job that week, so as long as they don't make me work late.

James, will pencil you in for marshaling duties.

Stand, Point, Wave Flag - have cup of tea afterwards, not difficult :D

Updated list of helpers,

Marshals - Mike Giles, James West, Claire/Adam Loney, Graham Parley

Hudder Upper - Sean Monaghan

Organiser/Sign On etc - Carol Middleton

Will see you all from 6pm onwards - would be helpful if someone ha sthe signs and starts getting them out or has them ready for me to put out.

Colin/Russ need you to set up the chequered banner at the finish and man that point for final timing/lap counting - I'll see you before hand to arrange (along with Flora).

Cheers,
