Can you help CX on 25th January.

7:00 Sat, 25 Jan 2014

Distance: 0.00km

Hi all, Richard Shenton has asked me to put this up.

We've been asked to help at the last Notts Derby Cyclo-cross League event on 25 January at Broxtowe Country Park near Nuthall.

It's short notice I know, but can you help?

Plenty of people will be needed to set the course up and marshal before and during races. People will also be needed to control car parking and register riders, as well as dismantle the course and tidy away at the end of the day.

Any assistance you can offer during the day would a great help.

Please let Richard Shenton ( know when you're available and he'll be in touch with more details.

Richard has also emailed those that offered to help at our cancelled Bramcote event.

All the best


yep I can help, for the whole day

Thanks Russ and Lee. Will send details round next week about meeting up at the park to walk the course and talk logistics.

Hi Richard, I am 50/50 at the moment as I am away the following Friday to Monday so need to see what I can offer without upsetting the family. Cheers Gareth

Thanks Gareth. Would be great if you could help but don't worry if you can't.

To avoid wasting time on the morning on the event I want to get as many helpers up to the park this Sunday (12th Jan) to walk the course and get a sense of the roles they will be given. I'm going to be up there at about 8am putting up signs as well as trimming some overgrown bits to make them ride-able. If you want to join me then or if you can make it up to the park at 10am please let me know. I'll have a much better idea about teams by then.

(BROXTOWE COUNTRY PARK - Off Nottingham Road (parallel to the A610). The nearest post code I can find is NG8 6AX. The entrance is next to the Acer Court Car Home which is opposite a BP garage.)

I'll be going in the car on Sunday to get there for 9:45 if anyone wants a lift. I will need to leave straight after as Nadia needs the car.

Richard and I can help in the morning til12 ish, can't make it this Sunday tho off to Hope with mtbs.

A good course walk through today. Lots of capability brown to make the wooded area safe for the riders.

Thanks Sally and Richard for making yourself available for part of the day on the 25th.

If anyone can give some time on the 25th that would be brilliant.
It could be to set up the course or marshal the races. As the park has many public crossings you can't have enough marshals.

Please put your name forward here and email Richard so that he can arrange roles for you depending on what time of the day you can help.
Course setup : 7 -10:45am
Marshalling and/or course break down is the rest of the day finishing about 4pm


17:16 Sun, 12 Jan 2014

The success is in the planning.


17:19 Sun, 12 Jan 2014

Even the flattish open spaces will be tough as the grass is quite deep.


17:22 Sun, 12 Jan 2014

Sarah working out how much soup to cater for all the helpers!


17:27 Sun, 12 Jan 2014

Sorry, would like to help but I'll be in between night shifts so in bed all day.


10:01 Mon, 13 Jan 2014

Sorry I couldn't make it yesterday. I can still help on the 25th though.


14:04 Mon, 13 Jan 2014

I can definitely help set up now


22:13 Wed, 22 Jan 2014

Russ - thanks. Did you get my recent email with set up teams and marshal roles on it?

Mark - that's great - would be a real shame if you could help set up but couldn't enjoy the racing.


13:01 Thu, 23 Jan 2014

@Rich...yes thanks. See you at 7.
