Request for Volunteers:
May 31, Saturday: Pelican Pointe Triathlon
As previously announced, the Pelican Point Triathlon is this Saturday. Last year our club provided about ten members with kayaks to help monitor the swim portion of the race. They need our help again this year, and only three paddlers have signed up so far.
The race is on Saturday, May 31st, located at the Pelican Point Grill in Fairhope, Alabama, down by the mouth of Weeks Bay. They have arranged a special area for the kayakers to park and launch. Signs will direct people to the parking area. They would like volunteers to be there between 6:15 and 6:30am.
The race starts with a swim at 7:00 am. Search and Rescue will be there to deal with any serious problems. The kayaks are there for flotation if someone needs to rest, and to keep swimmers on course. After the swim is completed (~8:15 am) the kayakers are welcome to hang around and watch the race and stay for the post race party (~11:00). They expect to have T-shirts for the volunteers.
