I need the following volunteers:

2. A commissaire

4. finishing line judge

Please email me on raikkonen at btinternet dot com to volunteer.

Btw - I haven't decided on a course just yet.

I have now set up the above event for online entries. Please enter at:

http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events ... -Road-Race

So far I have 2 entries so I am looking for a few more. I will now only accept entries via the above link.

Please note that the course is the D*ck Longdragon course (likely 3 laps) and the HQ is likely to be at Knockburn (and definitely not at Echt as per the BC website).

Entries close on 19 July.

Thanks.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered so far. I am in desperate need of a further 2 drivers and a further 3 or so other helpers. Please volunteer asap by emailing me on raikkonen at btinternet dot com

For anyone unfamiliar with the D*ck Longdragon course, it is as follows:

1. From Strachan, Aberdeenshire, head west on B976;
2. turn left on to the Old Military Road;
3. turn left on to B974;
4. turn left on to B976 to complete the lap.

I'm on the scrounge. Does anyone have signs, flags, CB radios and race numbers that I could borrow?

cheers.

I still require more helpers. The following roles have either been filled or are required to be filled, as noted below. Please note that the role allocations are provisional.

1. Driver for lead commissaire (Peter Clark) - Colin Sim
2. Driver for assistant commissaire (Neil Kininmonth)- Shelley Farrar
3. First aid driver and first aider - Fiona Wallace and Colette Cowie
4. Lead car 1 driver and assistant - Mark Heady & other half
5. Lead car 2 driver and assistant - Phil Duncan and Becky Watson
6. Neutral service driver and assistant - Andy Duncan. Assistant required.

7. finishing line judge - Isobel Smith
8. marshal 1 (corner of B976 and Old Military Road) - Debbie Lay
9. marshal 2 (corner of Old Military Road and B974 - marshal required
10. marshal 3 (twisty bit on B974) - Ellen Thornell
11. marshal 4 (corner of B974 and B976) - Bob Gibson
12. marshal 5 (narrow bridge on B976) - Trudy
13. marshal 6 (narrow bridge on B976) - marshal required (i.e. two marshals required at this location
14. marshal 7 - tight corner marshal required
15. marshal 8 - tight corner marshal required

16. sign on helper - Denise Raikkonen

I have a couple of conditional offers of help which I am grateful for (conditions being work commitments etc).

Please volunteer to help if you can by emailing me on raikkonen at btinternet dot com.

I am confident that all the positions will be filled. However, I am looking to finalise all positions by 19 July by the very latest. The drivers will need to be allocated before then so that I can get the relevant insurance form sent to British Cycling. If the above roles are not filled by 19 July I will likely have no option but to cancel the event.

thanks in anticipation.

With less than a week to go to deciding whether this race goes ahead or not, I still need 6 marshals and two drivers. Please volunteer as soon as possible if you can. I will confirm on the 19th whether the race is going ahead or not - depending on whether all positions have been filled.

Sorry Veli we are all away then, otherwise we would have volunteered.
Hope you get the helpers that you require and don't have to cancel.
