SCBC HOSTS 2016 HALL OF FAME SR OLYMPICS CYCLING
ON JUNE 9 AND 10
Well, it is that time of year again.
Once more SCBC is handling the Cycling events for the Hall of Fame Regional SR Olympics organization.
After an exciting and extremely busy 2013-2014 hosting the Ohio State SR Olympics Cycling events,
we are back once again to the Regional Games.
Yes, the pressure of running the Games at which National Qualifiers are selected remains off,
but we still need to ramp up and do a good job running this year's Regional Games.
Soooooo, that said: we are once again looking for volunteers to help with the games on Thursday
and Friday June 9 and 10. The volunteer opportunities are pretty much the same as before.
Descriptions of all the jobs are on the SCBC website on the "Other Links: SR Olympics" tab.
If you would like to do the same job as last year, it would be fabulous.
Examples are Registration (Check-in), Set Up and Take Down, Marshals, Refreshments Coordinators,
Starters, Holders, Timers, Spotters, Recorders, Computer Operators, Photographers, Car or Motorcycle
Lead, Sweep Vehicle or Cyclist, Informal Podium Girls, and Tee-Shirt Distribution. In many cases, the
same person can do several jobs which makes for more variety and fun. Please call, text or e-mail me
to volunteer or to get additional information. I will send info to volunteers by the end of May
The cycling will be held on the same roads as before at Marlington High School near Alliance.
Headquarters will be at the Pavilion at 10115 Moulin Ave. by the Horticulture Center.
The 10 K Time Trial and 20 K Road Race will be Thursday, June 9 and
the 5 K Time Trial and 40 K Road Race will be on Friday June 10.
RACERS: The Regional Games website is www.halloffamegames.org. You can register now to participate
in the racing at this site. Cost this year is $25. for one up to all 4 cycling events. Our Regional
Games could serve as a warmup for the State Games on June 14.
These State Games (in Springfield, OH on June 14) are where you can qualify for the Nationals to be
held in Birmingham, AL, in June 2017. At the Ohio State Games the 2 Time Trials and a 20 K Road Race
will all be offered on one day June 14. The top 4 finishers in each age group in each race will
qualify for the Nationals. Registration for this is online. Just go to www.ohioseniorolympics.org
Thank you so much for the fabulous support in the past years and looking forward to your help again this year!!!
