Chip timing will be available, come early to get set up with a temporary chip. We are currently looking for experienced chip timers, please post here if you can assist. Post-Race BBQ of King St market sausage on a bun, corn and beverage! Thanks to our sponsors – WILD ROCK – for always being amazingly supportive.
Parking at Harold Town will be at a premium… Consider parking your car at the intersection of Ashburnham Drive and Old Norwood Road (near the McFarlane Street Bridge) and riding out to Harold Town Conservation Area as a warm up!
If you are coming to watch, we may need of a couple of volunteers to act as marshalls on the course and we can definately use some help with preparing the BBQ and shucking the corn. Little children like to do this job, so bring your kids!
See you Sunday in the sunshine or in the rain.
