Gimil Event Help

Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

Our Sunday double header is fast approaching and I am looking to secure a number of people to help out in the transition from the skidpad event to the road course event. I know we always have some workers tear down the course and put things away, which we still need, but we have never simultaneously built a second course. So here is what I need:

0) I don't really need a volunteer although if anyone in our group can easily do this, I might call on you however I expect I will coordinate with Road Race to get the trailer relocated from the skid pad to the infield of the road course. This needs to happen before 1) and the last part of 2) can be completed.

1) 1 or 2 people to help Josh with setting up registration (i.e. open canopy, setup table, put our waivers, course maps, wristbands, etc.)

2) 1 or 2 people to help Matt tear down the timing equipment from the skidpad, relocate to the road course and test. Please note that the equipment must be turned off before collecting it. There is a warning that if the T-links (the little white boxes out at the start, stop and at the trailer) get too close to each other while on, they can mess up the devices.

3) I would like 3 teams of 2 - 3 people that will load some cones into cars and start setting up the road course. The course will be pre-marked with a paint dot so it will be mostly a matter of getting a map and finding the marks. Once we verify that the course is setup properly I would like that same team to chalk the course...it is too long to have 1 or 2 people walk the whole thing.

4) We will see if anyone is interested in ordering in food. If there is big enough demand then we would need someone to go collect said food assuming we can't get delivery.

So those are the big things that I can think of. Of course there are lots of little things that I know people will be chipping in for and that's awesome. The more we can coordinate this the better and easier it will go and we can minimize delays.

Please post up here if you would like to volunteer and let me know where you can help.

I’ll help as I can. Timing or where ever.

I'll sign up for #3 as part of "Team A".  Seeing as how I have a hatchback (Focus RS #65), I will load up cones from the skidpad and drive out to the road course and set up cones. All I need is another volunteer to ride shotgun and help load cones from the skidpad and deliver to our designated section of the  road course.  Any takers?

I will have the Jeep and a flat deck trailer. I could take a couple teams to setup course. Alternatively I can assist where ever needed.

Except for hauling cones around in my car, I'll be available where needed.

X2 No space for junk in the trunk, but I'll help with whatever else.

This may not be the thread for it (but I didn't see another thread related to the Gimli event)... But do we have an itinerary/timesheet for Sunday?

I ask because I likely won't be able to make the morning autox event, but I'd like to run the evening event. Is that going to be doable?
