Elis from Touchstone who most of us know is a kindred Bella spirit, has done much work to making the BAWC a success in our district. This series is almost entirely responsible for seeing so many more cat 3 and 35+ 1/2/3 categories races for women in our district this year. Linda posted this letter on the vbrace list, and I am copying it here. If you need Elis's contact info, PM or email me,
I was wondering if you would mind asking the Bellas whether anyone would be interested in helping coordinate the Women's Series in 2011. We're looking to bring one or two more volunteers on in 2011 because I won't be able to participate as fully for personal reasons (work-related). Lisa Hern will be staying on as program manager. For the last two years we have had two people splitting the work, which has worked out very well, and I will be around for help if it's needed. I'd say that it's taken me a few hours a week during the schedule-setting period, then just little moments here and there to put an update on the FB page and/or do results after the races.
If you would please see if any of your women would be interested, I'd really appreciate it. If I should be asking somebody else I can do that if you'll tell me who! I'm putting the word out early because I'm hoping to be able to pass on my experience with the Series before I go back to full-time in September...and if you know of someone who isn't a Bella but might be interested please let me know! Thanks so much for the help.
