Volunteer Requests

The early volunteer sign up for duties was a HUGE success and we only needed to auto-roster a small number of duties - THANK YOU!

However, unfortunately circumstances do change, and we now have a couple of people looking for swaps:

12 February 2017 - Senior Race Officer

If you are available to help it would be very much appreciated. Please remember that you can always swap datesif you have already been allocated a duty, or if you haven't completed 2 - 3 duties during your membership year, we can allocate a duty to you.

Members are reminded that it is your responsibility to find a replacement if you will have difficulty attending.

Further details about all volunteer duties can be found on the website HERE
