Only a week to go and we'll be cruising down the BRP!
Looks like we are going to have a large crowd on hand. To help with that, we'd like to get some folks to help out as rally leaders. Looking for folks willing to do any of the following:
Segment leader - lead the whole pack of MINIs down the BRP as the lead MINI. Would be for a segment or two from one stop to another. Great practice for leading a drive. And you usually have open road in front of you (in case you have gotten tired of looking at the same MINI boot from the last segment).
Rally assistant - these will be folks interspersed in the line (every 12th to 15th MINI or so). May effectively become a ride leader if we break up the group some. Main thing will be when getting into town and such, will help the MINIs behind them to the next assistant to stay together and get to where they are going (so someone fairly comfortable with where we are headed, how to get there, or handy with GPS). We'll be advising folks that if they are starting to feel lost, one of these people is who they should find.
Sweeper - this is the last MINI in the line. Help let the leader and others know where the end of the line is and any issues coming up from behind us. If we have a problem (e.g. flat tire or something), may need to stay and help and then guide folks in to the next stop. Basically need to be able to run the route on your own.
If you are interested in helping out in any of these roles, please post up here or drop me a PM. If anyone takes up this offer, we'll try to get together Thursday evening after dinner (or if you are joining us later, we'll find time to coordinate).
