RACE DIRECTOR: For several years, this has been a difficult position to fill with a qualified and available candidate. The board is currently discussed a strategy for sharing the duties of Race Director among a committee of experienced board members to proactively address this need. To share feedback or suggestions, please contact Trevor Frederick or email

HEAD FLAGGER: Candidates who are interested in supporting Sunday race flagging at a per diem of $75 per day (hours: noon to 5 pm) should email with a brief summary of qualifications and general availability, for board review. Head flaggers will be need from mid-April through the end of October.

PROMOTIONS: Member Fran Johnson joined the board in January 2016. Additional support in this area is always welcome; to learn more, please contact Trevor Frederick or email
