Title: MARRC and Summit Point
Post by: FoodCrewMARRC on May 29, 2002, 08:16:16 pm
First off thanks to Shawn for creating this new forum.

I thought it would be a great place for corner workers and safety crew to share ideas and stories.  I have been with MARRC for 3 years now and I have to say MARRC is more of a family than a club.  Any time volunteers come together it's because they want to be there.

For those that don't know our website is www.marrc.org and it contains lots of info about being a corner worker and other ways to volunteer.

My role this year has changed from being a corner captain to being the cook and chief bottle washer for the club. I make sure that the 30-40 workers get lunch and dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday. The way I see it I need to make sure the workers are well fed and well hydrated.

so..with that said.. I am glad we have a new place to talk and of course racers are welcome to comment here too because without them we would be awful bored. :)

For anyone that is interested MARRC provides corner worker training every race weekend on Saturday morning.

Some of the benefits of being a MARRC corner worker are: free admision to the track, you get fed three meals over the course of the weekend, you get a formal classroom training(we don't just throw you on a turn and hand you a flag) and the more days you work the more clothes, hats and other items you get.  You also earn your MARRC membership by being a corner worker and after you are a MARRC member you get a discount on the MARRC road racing school.  

We try to suggest that all racers come out, take the class  and work at least one day(if not a weekend).  Seeing the race from the turns instead of on the bike gives them a totally different view of racing, the track, and the role of the corner worker. Especially for the newer riders, this can also give them a view of race lines.

Excellent! Our own place to talk about corner working etc.
I had the dubious honor of working in turn 1 at Summit on Friday and Saturday and then crashing in the same turn on Sunday! I must admit it was kinda cool to get picked up by people you know, even though it was painful. Kudos to AGV for protecting my hide.
