Corner marshals are key to a safe and exciting criterium. Their key responsibility is to keep the race course free of vehicles and assist observers in safely crossing the race course.

Corner marshals are needed for the 2017 Melon City Criterium to be held at Weed Park on May 28.  Below are the various corner marshal posts along the route. Volunteers are asked to staff a post during one of three shifts: 8:00 – 11:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., or 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. Volunteers must be a Melon City Bike Club member.

Volunteers who have other commitments are asked to indicate times available when signing up. Information will be emailed directly to the corner marshal chairman, who will respond to you once all positions are finalized. Once the positions are filled, you should receive an email stating your time and position for corner marshaling.

The corner marshal chairman will need to do some rearrangements to make sure all positions are covered. If you have a preferred location or time you want to marshal, send your response in early.
