Major Event Volunteers Needed! - Mt Baw Baw VDHS Round Feb 2016

22 JAN 2016 | BY GRAEME TREWERN

2016 is shaping up to be another big year for mountain biking events returning to their absolute best! All of our club social rides are already rolling along nicely with many new members and newcomers to the awesome sport of mountain biking! Our mountain bike parks, skills areas, coaching, lessons and new projects are hurtling along in top gear!

Together we are Co-Hosting Round 4 of the Chain Reaction Cycles and Nukeproof Victorian Downhill Series at Mt Baw Baw on the 27th and 28th February 2016 in 5 weeks time with Gippsland MTB, Red Hill Riders and Bike Baw Baw.

This major annual event is going to be a great opportunity to showcase our clubs to riders from all over Victoria, Australia and the World!!! At the same time, any profit that we make will go towards infrastructure that will benefit ALL Gippsland MTB and Red Hill Riders members!

To make it all work – we need VOLUNTEERS!

It would be great if you could donate at least half a day’s work for this event.

Currently have volunteer positions for:

Shuttle Bus Pick Up and Return to Traralgon x 5 positions (pickup Friday 5:30 – Return Sunday 5:30) – Gippsland Residents should apply
GMTB Shuttle drivers x 12 (working on a 3.5 hour shift only, either morning or afternoon)
RHR’s Marshals x 7 (working rotational shifts)
Registration x 2 (Saturday only)
Nick King is our volunteer coordinator for this event. You can volunteer for a whole day, half a day, 2 full days – whatever you choose. If you have any friends/relatives/neighbours who’d like to help, they are more than welcome. Accommodation and lunches will be supplied to each and every volunteer at the event plus you get trail kudos for ever!

Not only will you be helping out YOUR AWESOME CLUB but you’ll also get to see some of the best downhill riders in Australia in action. Plus there is the awesome social side to this event which is a great way to meet like-minded mountain bike riders! Bring your bike and join in on the FREE SOCIAL EVENTS!
