Racers and Non-Racers,
Dedicated Race Committee
We are excited about the great start we’ve had in establishing a Dedicated Race Committee at ECSC. Three Wednesday night races have been run so far with this new program and we’ve had great participation by our new PRO (Primary Racing Officer) team who have been running these races (and learning to do it well!).
The new PRO’s are:
R Tom Moore
A special thanks to Tom Moore in getting this program off the ground. Tom has been the PRO for these initial races and has been helping the other PRO’s get up to speed with our specific ECSC process. Thank you to Geoff Endris, as well, who taught an initial course on Race Management and has remained a continuous advisor to us.
We couldn’t be more excited about the talent, skills and enthusiasm these volunteers have for the program. This new system and focused talent should bring many improvements to racing at ECSC. I hope you will give a strong welcome to these new volunteers and share feedback with them often.
Upcoming Mayor’s Cup Regatta – May 21 & 22
The Mayor’s Cup Regatta is coming up quick. The regatta will take place on May 21st and 22nd. The NOR, SI and Registration form are posted on the racing page of the ECSC website (click here). We need racers to sign up as early as possible to help us prepare trophies, awards and food for your enjoyment. Whether it is your 10th regatta or your very first regatta, I hope you will join us! We very much welcome beginners to these events and will do all we can to help you learn. Volunteers are still needed to assist on the race committee and support functions of the event. This is a good way to earn work credits that help pay for your membership dues the next year. Please get on the Racing page of our ECSC website and click the SignUp Genius icon to sign up to for racing or non-racing volunteer activities at this event.
Volunteering for Racing Activities throughout the Year
There are many racing activities and events planned this year. A schedule for all of them is posted on the ECSC Racing page of our website. ECSC’s normal racers participate in these but we are particularly interested in providing opportunities for non-racers to come out, observe, and become more familiar with racing. One way to do that is to encourage non-racers to volunteer on race committee or to help with other pre- or post- race activities. We know members that enjoy just being around the racing activities, while not racing themselves. We hope that many non-racers will volunteer by going to the SignUp Genius on the ECSC Racing page and start enjoying their time with us! Work Credits that help pay for your membership dues the next year will also be earned.
This SignUp Genius site has just opened up so many slots are available to fit any schedule. We hope to see you soon!
