Call for CCC Volunteers

By Harv Koplo, SBC Capital City Century Chai

The 45th annual Capital City Century is coming up on September 10, the Sunday after Labor Day. To make sure this year’s CCC is another memorable one, we need your help! If you’ve volunteered before, we’d love to have your help again this year. If you enjoyed a volunteer position last year, here’s a chance to get your “dibs” on it for 2017. If you've never volunteered but would like to help we would love to have you! Bike club membership is not necessary to volunteer.

If you enjoy working with a friend, have them join you! Volunteering for the Century is a great way for folks to get to know other bicyclists and bike club members. There are plenty of jobs prior to the event for those who will be riding but still want to help.

To volunteer, please click on the Volunteering menu item above to view the various opportunities available (slots are filling up). You can also contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Scott Sievers, committee chairs or myself. Contact information is below. If you’ve worked on a committee before and don't want to use our volunteer website yourself (the easiest way), feel free to contact the chair directly about helping out. Any information you provide to chairs will be forwarded to me or our volunteer coordinator and you will be entered into our list of volunteers. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in an open chair position that is listed as TBA below.
