Hello Volunteers and Potential Volunteers
We need you to volunteer if you haven't done so already. Attached is a list of people that have volunteered so far. There is only about 1/3 of what we need to make it a successful event.
The 5th Annual Criterium will take place on Saturday, July 11, 2009. This great community and sports event would not be possible without you.
"On Saturday July 11th, the downtown streets of West Chester will be humming with excitement as a hundred professional and USCF licensed cyclists race 60 laps around a 1 mile circuit. At speeds of 35 mph, racers will jockey for position while navigating narrow streets and tight corners. All the action begins at the intersection of Gay and High Streets, the home of title sponsor Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant."
The 2009 Iron Hill Twilight Criterium will take place in West Chester on Saturday, July 11, 2009. For the second year in a row the IHTC will be part of a 10 race point series called USACrits which makes us part of a National race series instead of just being a local race. You can see more information on the USACrits series by going to The benefits of this is that we will be promoted nationally and we should get a higher level of pro rider participation. As you will see on the usacrits webpage some of the other cities in the series include Austin, TX, Charlotte, NC, Athens, GA, Washington DC, Binghamton, NY, Dallas, TX and New York City with the finals to be in Las Vegas, NV on September 24th.
If you were a volunteer for any of the previous IHTC and have a preference for the task that you performed please indicate in the comments area of the on-line form and I will try to take that into consideration when I make the assignments. Also, if you were a Block Captain-Road Marshal and would like to work with your own "crew" please have them indicate so when they fill out the volunteer form. I will try to accommodate volunteers on a first signed up-first served basis. Also, if you are a member of another bike club, ski club or similar organization and would like your group to "own" a corner for the entire event please indicate in the comments area and I will try to accommodate your group.
You are more than welcome to ask friends, family, neighbors etc to volunteer with you. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
Iron Hill Twilight Criterium Volunteer Training will take place at the West Chester Borough Hall on Friday, June 26, 2009 in the Borough Council Chambers from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. It is not mandatory but I would encourage all to come participate and share ideas. I will try to have assignments finalized by then.
This is a great way to contribute to a community event, participate in an inter-club activity and promote cycling in Chester County.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
