Just a friendly reminder that the LSU Cycling Team is still in need of volunteers for this weekend's LSU Invitational collegiate race. Below is an outline of positions, places, and times we will need people. The team time trial and criterium races are Saturday in and around Baton Rouge. The road race is Sunday in St. Francisville. The LSU Cycling Team volunteered their time and effort last fall at the Senior Olympics and this past Sunday at Rouge Roubaix.
If you can donate your time, please contact our race director Dustin Drewes, ASAP (contact info below). If you reply to this email, please reply to me only so as not to clutter up the group's inbox.
These are the positions that need to be filled for the weekend of our race. Below are all of the positions that we will need to be filled. If you are not racing, it is heavily suggested that you find a spot to fill for volunteering. If you are racing, it would be helpful if you could find someone you know that would be willing to help. Please include what times you can be available to help. For some positions, is ok if you cannot stay for the entire race such as TT registration or crit setup/takedown.
