Posted by: Paul A Gares on 9/24/2011 aP 9:25 PMFolks, it may be too late to get help, but you all need to know that we have a club event taking place tomorrow. A number of members are riding and that's fine. The number of members who have responded to numerous requests for help is disappointing. At this point, we have around 20 volunteers... 4 are ECU students who were persuaded to help by their professor... we have three young teens who have been volunteered by their parents.... we have 3-4 wives who are helping their husbands out... So over half of our helpers aren't even club members!
I have heard from a couple of people today that they will not be able to help out because of illness. So right now, I have 1 SAG vehicle when we really could use 4; Mark Knowlton who will have organized all the food and drink, and filled water containers at the crack of dawn is in the position of having to man a rest stop for a fairly significant part of the day. And the only solution I can see to our SAG problem is for me to drive SAG after having spent the early part of the morning organizing registration.
If there is anyone out there who finds themselves with 2-3 hours free tomorrow we can surely use help. Driving a vehicle along the route to help out riders in trouble would be the primary need at this point. Please call me if you can help. 341-8184...
