we have lift off...event is on and paperwork is submitted....PLEASE NOTE, FINDING VOLUTEERS FOR THE THREE ROLES NEEDED, AND SUBMITTING IT TWO WEEKS AHEAD OF THE EVENT IS IRRITATING....I am not looking for sympathy, only a more willing group of drivers, willing to step up to make events happen...that is as close as I get to preaching....so if you have held back, step up---I personally will walk you through new roles if that is your issue...we all love to do this and it is unfortunate so few people are willing to do the less glamorous work to see the events happen..... :)

I hear your frustration Mel.

I think there are two things at play here -

- this forum no longer gets much traffic most stuff has move to FaceBook.

- most folks show up and race and go home and assume that the tasks are too difficult and specialized to just sign up for or they just assume everything is taken care of (largely because they don't check in here) and never think that help is needed to make these events a reality.

I don't have the answer for this but wanted to point this out.

See you soon I hope.

We have been really low on turnouts to all events this year. Can we round up worker assignments for all events longer in advance. Like starting now can recruit people for the remaining events now so everything is lined up? It might come to us personally contacting people to get commitments.

Good idea. But as hard as it is to get volunteers for a near event, I doubt we could get a volunteer for one a month away.

Hello All -

I'm just touching base to be sure we have everything lined up for a fun event this weekend. Who ended up as EC for this event?

I am EC once again. Mel has kindly offered to move the van Friday, so I'm heading over Saturday sometime to rope off the parking. Porta potty has been ordered. Do we have someone that can do timing?

You can put me down to help wherever needed, I've never done timing so not sure i can help there.

Unless something dramatically changes, I am planning on being there. I can run timing, and Brad, if you want me to train you on it I can do that too.

Just a quick thank you to all that made today possible and so much fun. It was silly hot but everyone running with us was super cool (sorry but that wording was just too easy to ignore). I hope we see you all again in Helena for Top Gun and then back in Bozeman after that.

And.......like Mel noted at the end of the day we need help to make the events run smoothly like it did today. Many hands make for light work and I urge anyone that would like to help in any way to speak up. Nothing is hard to do nor all that time consuming but these things need to be done nonetheless and we don't want to have the folks doing much of the heavy lifting to burn out. So please dive it - we'll make it easy for you.

Thanks again!

Late to this thread, sorry about that.

Huge thanks to Alex for coming early and getting the timing set up. We managed to run through the day with minimal issues. It was nice to see so many newish people there, maybe our attendance numbers will start to go up? 20+ people with most of our regulars gone was impressive. See you guys at Top Gun!

No problem! Also, it took me a few days, but I finally got the results posted last night. Sorry for the delay there.
