The league could not run without the hard work of many volunteers.
Each race meet requires several people available to perform various duties without which, the racing cannot be run.
So if you are coming along to watch, bringing a younger racer, or even just taking a week off from the league, why not volunteer, because the league cannot run without you!
Below is a list of the positions we need to fill, and a rota of the positions against race meetings to fill for the coming few weeks. Please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can volunteer and let them know which slot(s) you can fill. Also let them know if there is one particular task you’d like to do, or any that you would prefer (or simply can’t) do.
What will I be doing?
