Mustang Invite Help Needed

posted Aug 29, 2016, 9:50 PM by Mustang TrackXC
Well, the preparations have been made.  The course is in really good shape (thanks in large part to Bart, Brad, and Amy who came out Sunday to help again, and to Ron, Jim and Tyler before the 11th Hour Meet.  The finish area is much improved and is going to add to the atmosphere of our race, as well as improve spectator experience.  
To pull this all off on meet day, I would like to ask for your help in the following areas:
  1. Melinda Banister and Elicia Haskett are going to head up the concessions/T-shirt table.  It would be nice to secure commitment from a few others to help relieve them so they can step away at points when needed, like for Elicia to watch Austin try to bring home win #2!
  2. Interchange/Chute prep. (1 Person)   The new course layout makes this job WAAAAY easier.  Once the runners start their second loop, all you have to do is move one single rope.  Bart got it all set up to work seamlessly.  We would like for a boys parent to help with this during the girls race, and vice versa. 
  3. Finish Line (4-5 People is ideal)  Either myself or Kelly Smith will be actually running the scoring/timing computer.  We need one person to write bib numbers on the sheet as finishers come across; 2 people to grab kids and keep them walking all the way through the chute; 1 person to tear off bib tags; 1 person to act as a floater between chute walkers and bib tearer to help when things get hectic with a rush of finishers.  Finish line workers, I would also like to alternate between boys and girls parents, so that each parent gets to see their own kids compete.
