The Intercontinental Cup Race is a next Saturday and we still have some spots to be filled. Take a look to see if there is something that interests you before someone else snaps it up!
If you are at Big White on Friday night, perhaps you would consider signing up as the race office assistant from 5-7pm to help out with putting bibs together and race volunteer kits.
Remember, volunteering is not only a great way to learn more about the racing world but allows your child to see you be part of their world
