Volunteer Roster (Online Spreadsheet)

Peel District Cycling Club is a volunteer organisation. The club really values its volunteers and we rely on our committee, club members, family of members, and other interested community members to assist the club in order for us to be able to serve our members. We simply cannot race without the support of our volunteers.

Each club member has a responsibility to the club and fellow members to assist the club at least once per year in an event. It is your club, and without the support of our member volunteers, the club will not be able to run cost effective racing as it does.

The club needs to know before any event if you can assist. With all the activity on event day, it is very difficult if you volunteer on the day, please let us know before hand. The roster is online with the link above, shoot an email to volunteer@pdcc.asn.au with the dates and positions you can fill. The earlier you advise the club, the better organised we are.

Without your help, the club cannot run events.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What does a Race Marshall do?

A Race Marshall is responsible for directing or stopping competitors and reporting any incidents to the race committee for the safety of the races. Only those trained in traffic management will be allowed to stop / direct traffic as per the Traffic Management Plan for the course. The committee will assign the Race Marshals to the specific parts of the course on the day of the race. Majority of the winter season racing will start at 2pm and usually wraps up just before 4pm, and summer racing starts at 0800 and is finished around 11am.

What does the Registration Desk do?

We no longer take cash entries on race day, the responsibilities are to

  1. Hand out numbers and transponders as per the start list supplied.
  2. Collect licenses of competitors
  3. At the end of racing, receive numbers, transponders, and return licenses.

What does the Toilet pickup / return mean?

We hire a toilet for events where there are no facilities, this is on a trailer, and requires a vehicle with a tow ball to be able to tow it. The toilet is hired from Kennards in Rockingham for all of the Winter racing, and the Rockingham based criteriums, and Kennards in Mandurah for the Pinjarra races.

In Summer, the toilet needs to be picked up at 0700, and will be returned by 1200. In Winter, collection is at 12pm, and return before 5pm. A suitable vehicle and drivers license is required.
