I know the hot days of July seem a long ways off right now when it's still 30 degrees overnight, but the Hamel Time Trial (Velo Bella's 2006 MCF race) is coming up in just 3! short months and it's time to get planning. Lucky for us, Sheryl Golin has already done a ton of leg work on this race (new to the MCF calendar) and we have our course & start/finish area already identified. Now we need to make sure we've got all the pieces and people in place for another wildly successful MN Velo Bella Race!
So, here's the plan:
What? Hamel Time Trial Race Planning Kick-off
Who? All Bellas interested in having a hand in planning & executing the race
When? in 2 Weeks - Wednesday May 2nd, 6PM
Where? contact Becca privately for address & directions (this is a public board after all!)
What will we be talking about? Race details and assignment of race committee/team chairs (Ex. Registration Coordinator, Volunteer Coordinator, Sponsor Coordinator, Race Director, Facilities/Equipment Coordinator, MCF/Officials Coordinator).
Our goal is to make sure that no single person on the team feels like they need to do everything to make this race work; if we get enough Bellas to help out with the race planning, we can make sure that we can all have fun on race day. So, please come out and help the team - this race is the most visible event for the Velo Bellas in the MN racing community and we want folks to show up and have a great race. Let's continue the tradition of fun and well executed Velo Bella races with the Hamel Time Trial!
If you're interested in helping out with race planning but can't make it on May 2nd, let me know. Also, please try to give me a heads up if you plan on attending the meeting - I'll have pizza & drinks and want to make sure I get enough.
Finally, even if you can't help with planning, be sure to mark July 15th on your calendars to volunteer for the race - we'll need as many Bellas as we can get to help out the day of the race!
That's it for now - please email or call with any questions and I look forward to seeing you on the 2nd!
