Help Wanted

I just want to let you all know that at the end of this season I am stepping down as the race director of ArcticCross.  It's been a great 5 years and it's truly been a pleasure watching this thing grow.  You guys are all awesome and it's the racers that make this series so great!  But, now it's time for a new adventure for me.

With that said, we are looking for a new race director.  We hope to have someone commit by the end of the season and be able to announce my predecessor at the awards ceremony on Sun Oct 12th, so if you or someone that you know are interested, please let Bruce or me know in the next couple of weeks.

It's an exceptionally rewarding position and really isn't that much work except for a couple of weeks before the season and the last couple of weeks of the race season.  The duties include the following:

Promote the series in August
Obtain Permits
Rent Portable Toilets
Organize the Awards Banquet
 - Rent the venue
 - procure food
 - procure beverages
 - procure prizes
 - get Swag giveaways

There's also about 3 meetings a year with the rest of the board, these usually involve sitting around at someone's house drinking beer and planning the details of the season.  Along with some other misc. duties that I can't recall at the moment, but the big ones are listed above.

Thanks and see you on Oct 10th for the night race at Kincaid (I'm out of town this coming weekend)!

John
