The 2014 series is due to get underway on 11th June and needs some help please.

This fantastic local series is made possible by a collection of local clubs. Aside from riders we will also be making pleas for assistance in a range of ways. Here are the most immediate.
  • Promotion of local Clubs and the SCRS at the Suffolk Show. We have previously done half day shifts enabling people to view the show too. If you could be available for a morning or afternoon on either or both 28-29 May, please let either Tim or Adam know ASAP please. Tim Snook tsnook@btinternet.com 07919 499942. Adam Keer adamandjustine@sky.com 07880 601396
  • Be part of the First Aid team. Working with others to cover a race or an evening we would be very interested to hear from those with experience and qualification please. All equipment will be provided. Please contact adamandjustine@sky.com 07880 601396 .
  • The Line Judging Area is the focus for all the racing buzz. This year the finish line will benefit from elevated staging platform, restricted access, improved rider race numbers and HD Cameras. To ensure BC Regs are covered however, we still require a number of volunteers to act as Line Judges. Please contact the SCRS Marshall Coordinator Phil Barrett at Philbarrett@tesco.net .
A contributions of help are gratefully received and make the series so successful.
