Mt Buller Alpine Assault - Saturday 15 February 2014.
[from the organiser]
I was hoping you could put a call out to the MMBCC members for assistance with the Alpine Assault MTB Marathon event.
We are looking for people to help with course marshalling and manning some road crossings. The duration of the event is around 12 hours so we are looking for quite few people  starting at around 7:00AM through to around 9:00PM.
Everyone who helps gets paid (so no volunteers). Payments can be made out to individuals if they wish or the payments can be donated to the club, it’s the individuals choice which.
Payments are based on an hourly rate and shifts are typically 4 hours long. Lunch and drinks are supplied also. If any of your members are interested in helping us stage this brand new event for Mount Buller they can contact me. My details are below.
