Message from Travis, Chief of Race:
Hi folks, looking to recruit volunteers for race day on Saturday Jan 28th for this year’s Snow Valley Open. Some jobs are in the stadium, some are out on the course, some start before the race some during and some after. Some jobs even happen the day before in the set up of the race course and the stadium start and finish zones. So if you feel you can help out please let me know as soon as you can and I can place you somewhere that I hope you will enjoy. Pre race jobs: Course set up and Stadium set up Usually happen on the day before race day (Friday the 27th) or the morning before the race. Race jobs: Registration and bib hand out. 9:30 to 10:30 at the lodge to hand out bibs and organize racer info. Starter/ finish controller for Atoms race on the troll trail. 10:15 till 11 in the stadium Start line for all other racers. 10:15 till about 11:30 On course controllers 10:30 till race finish (usually 12:30 at the latest) Finish line controller 10:30 till race finish. Plunging finish times or writing down bib numbers, collecting bibs handing out choco bars, running race sheets etc. Clean up after race 12:30 or so till complete. So anyhow there are many jobs that need doing and more smaller jobs than just those listed are available. If you can help in any way, email me and I will set you up with a position so we can make this a fun event for all. Thank you very much Travis Carter Chief of Race
Snowflake Cafe will be serving out soup and buns and goodies in an outdoor concession. $3 for soup and a bun, $1-ish for goodies. Of course, we need people to help with the food preparation (soup and sweets), serving, and washing dishes. Email Lisa if you can make a pot of soup or a batch of ccokies, or help out on race day.
McBike & Sport from Smithers will be on site as well, with an assortment of Nordic gear, equipment, clothing, wax, etc., and lots of good advice about gear, for every level of skier! Click here for poster if you don’t see it below.
