We have a request for volunteers. Check your calendar.

Hi
I am the assistant director for the First Annual Pelican Point Triathlon to
be held just south of Fairhope, Alabama on June 30, 2001, starting at 7:00
AM. It will include a .33 mi swim, 19.1 mi bike, and 3.1 mi run. Virginia
Holland referred us to you because we are hoping that your club would be
willing to use your kayaks and members to patrol the swim course. We will
need 4-6 kayaks or canoes and volunteers to control them if possible. If the
volunteers are unavailable, we can find people to use them. The kayaks would
carry an extra life vest to give to any swimmer in need of one. We don't
anticipate any problems because the swim is so short and shallow, but it
would give us some insurance that if there were a problem help would be close
by. In return for your help we would be happy to add your club to our sponsor
list on our web page, and flyers, and put you on our T-shirt, we could also
include a flyer with information about your club in a packet we will give the
participants. If you wanted to set up a booth at the race that would be great
too! We expect about 150-300 athletes (mostly local) so it would give you
some good exposure. Let me know if you have any questions and please feel
free to call me or Chris (the director of the race). Our web site is

Thanks for your support and we hope this will work out!!!
