Ok, if you're a member, hopeful you read my rant on this subject on the members only side.  So......below is the 2016 1st half list of races requiring a pit.  It may not be 100% as I didn't see Jackrabbits which should be in mid-January, but this is all I could locate.  Also, those with 2 days listed is how it was listed on the tentative calendar, but I suspect because they weren't clear if it was a Saturday or Sunday race at the time, or that the Youth Race is on Saturday.  Take a look, take your pick, and reply here with your choice.  Thanks to those that step up. 

Here is the 2016 Tentative Race and Pits Schedule, please sign up for pit duties.

PIT CREW NOTES  (in addition to following the established club pit
rules & responsibilities)
1.   Afternoon before race, pick pit spot and mark with ribbon
      and Viewfinder signs. 
2.   Morning of race, set up Participant sign up sheet and collect rider gas
      cans/goggles etc. to take to pit.  Make sure racers know where
      you are on pit row.
3.   In addition to the dump cans/pit bags, make sure you have the
      following at the pits:
      Water for racers?A tool box?.towels/rags
4.   Pit Captain will assign pit responsibilities?..who will remove gas
      cap and hold throttle, hold towel between rider and gas cap, dump
      gas, give rider clean goggles and water.   
5.   Determine what order you think riders will arrive and pre-stage
      their gas/goggles.  As riders complete their pit,  go to the next
      riders on the list and so on down the list.
6.   Monitor the finish line for both 1 and 2 loop riders?.although the
      club policy is that no one leave until all riders are in, it is primarily
      the pit crews responsibility to account for all riders, and to arrange
      to get anyone hurt or broken down on the course. 
7.   Pit Captain is responsible for safety in the pit area.  Non-pit crew
      will be directed to remain out of the immediate are where racers
      are pulling in so the pit crew can do their job.
8.   At completion of race, note which club members were present and
      what pit duties they performed.
      (Make sure the sheets stay with the clipboard.)


9.  Members performing pit duties are responsible to sign the back of the
      pit sheet if they want to receive points for working the pits.


*THE PIT CAPTAIN WILL TAKE ACTIVE CONTROL OF THE PIT AREA *

Chris, thanks for updating the schedule and attaching the pit duties.   I am sad and surprised to see no Jackrabbits race on the schedule.  That has been the anticipated first race of the year forever.  And big thanks to those that have already signed up for a pit.  Way to Bleed Goldenrod.

Thanks again to all those that have signed up already.  Your Goldenrod is awesome.  And in that spirit, I will take pit for ROVERS.  Chris, I'll let you update the list since you made it look so purdy : )

Hudy? ;-)

It has been updated. Don't forget we still need support crew if we have more than a couple of riders in the same class. We still need other members to help out in the pits when available and needed.

Chris, Charlie sent me an email saying he will work the pit with you.  Can you add him to the schedule?  Thanks.

Just wanted to bring this topic back to the top.  As always, we have to stay on top of pit support for our racers.  Not sure who ended up with the pit stuff after 4Aces, but the next race on the calendar with a pit is Prospectors March 20 (Dee and James) so please make plans to have it out there.  Dirt Diggers and Rovers race pits are covered, but we have 3 more races after that before the summer break that will require a pit and need members to step up to provide Pit Captain and support.  Look at the calendar and let me know your choice.  See you in the Dez.
