ROMP at the Sea Otter Classic

ROMP is working with The Sea Otter Classic on two events: the new marathon/epic ride on Thursday April 14, and the Fun ride on Saturday April 16, 2005. I am working directly for sea otter on coordinating these two events. ROMP will be championing both events with volunteers for marshaling, feed zones, pre-marking and riding the events, and some clean-up afterward. Volunteering for the fun ride will also involve riding with the participants, encouraging new riders, assisting with participant technical difficulties, and having a wonderful time.ROMP is looking for volunteers for the whole week, and especially on April 14th.

What’s in it for you? Sea Otter is comp-ing ROMP a 30 person camp site, parking, and compensation to ROMP for volunteers. Also, each volunteer for an event, will receive free registration for the race/ride of their choice. We will have a ROMP party Thursday night to kick off the sea otter festival. There is also a sea otter staff party on Sunday ROMP volunteers are invited too.

This is the single greatest fund generator for ROMP. Paul and many other are taking the week off and coming down for the week. The new marathon/epic, includes the west side of BLM Fort Ord land, which had not be open before. There are miles of new beautiful single track to ride, and volunteering for the marathon on Thursday April 14 is a great introduction to it. I hope you all will consider coming down for the sea otter classic. It begins of Thursday, April 14 and ends Sunday April 17th. I am sure Paul Nam will fill us all in on the other ROMP activities, such as our booth.
