Thursday Night Race Committee Volunteers:

The Thursday Night Races are upon us and we’re looking for a few good people to sign up. As we did last year, there will be a trained PYC instructor aboard the Lindsay Lord who is experienced running races. You will be scored a first place in the Thursday Night Race the night you run it. And finally, there will be snacks and non-alcoholic beverages provided. We recommend you have at least 3 people to man the committee boat.
