- must have a cell phone to communicate with race directors.
- must be assertive and independent to perform light flagging duties.
- requires lifting, sweeping and setting up signage.

Kulis Crit (1st of a Series)
Watch Monday for updates! Why???
We got some not so good, but good news regarding Kulis that will effect the start of our Kulis Crit Series. Yesterday, we found out that they will be demobilizing a building just off the course and repaving the road. There plan was to start construction, Friday the 24th. If that’s the case we would not be able to hold the first 2-3 Crits at Kulis. We are already making plans for another location but will not be able to pull it off for the first Crit scheduled onWednesday, April 29th.
We have NOT cancelled the crit for Wednesday barring any construction postponement. If things are delayed we will still host the crit at Kulis. If in fact they are on schedule and start this weekend we will postpone the first crit to later in the season.
Stay tuned and watch for complete updates as soon as they become available.
REGISTER ONLINE NOW!
Volunteers – We always need Volunteers too! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you or a family member can help!
