Fellow Biathletes,

To brother Woodard's outreach  reprinted below, I add only, 'Yeah, what he said!' and ask the expansion of your collective vision to January 28 (and beyond).  If you were fortunate enough to race in our CBC season opener Saturday, you know how exhilarating it is to be in on a well run race; smooth and welcoming check-in, a smartly set and managed range, well drilled timing starts/finishes/results, and a  fine & challenging course - groomed and marked specifically to fulfill your masochistic fantasies  All of this stuff is the bedrock of the reward and enjoyment we draw from CBC race events.

If you've perused the CBC calendar lately (And who hasn't?), you've noted that the 2012 Relay event is on the books for January 28.   Kyle Boschen and I are Competition Co-Chiefs for this baby.  This of course means that the success of the Relay is far and away way the most crucial of all priorities on the 2012 CBC calendar.  We invite you to join us in that success story.  I believe the Relay is rather a special format.  I believe that in the CBC setting it's a gas, adding heightened elements of camaraderie and a delightful twist on the competitive norm of all the 'every skier for themselves' formats.

The Relay Event needs a Range Chief, Course Chief, Timing Chief and of course the company of the folks who work with the Chiefs on event day to make it all read like poetry.  I am still grateful to those who made it real at the 2011 Relay.  Some of you volunteered your service thru the full day's schedule of races (above and beyond the call of duty), however I believe I'm correct when I say that everyone who volunteered and wanted to race was able to race.  Kyle and I will accommodate your wishes.

If you would consider becoming a member of the 2012 Relay support team, please drop me a line.

On behalf of Kyle and me, thank you very much for your attention.

Subject: Range chief needed Jan 14-15 weekend (remember: "chiefs" race all season FREE)

This email is a specifically a request for a range chief for the upcoming January 14th and 15th two-day race weekend. You can split this job with another person so you can race.

Things to remember about volunteering:
1) Our races don't happen without volunteers
2) You get a free trail pass
3) You can still race by sharing volunteer duties with another person
4) You do not need any biathlon experience and anyone is capable of all jobs
5) And most importantly - volunteers for what we call "chief" positions race for FREE the entire season
6) Sneaky loophole: you can get another person to serve as a chief in your place and YOU race for free (significant others and friends, this is your time to shine!)

Continue reading below if I have your attention but you're not convinced. If you don't require more persuasion, email me with your range chief (and free racing!) interest and I can describe the position.

January 14th and 15th is a two day event. Note, you do not need to participate both days. Two races is twice the fun but also twice the work.

If you have yet to volunteer for a CBC event, now is the time. And if you didn't catch the above detail, if you volunteer as a "chief positions" for a race, YOU RACE THE ENTIRE SEASON FOR FREE. And specifically, if you serve as a chief for a race later in the season, you still race for free for all races before your "chiefing" race. Note, you can split your chief role with someone else so that you can still race, which means you would be a co-chief for two races to qualify for free CBC racing this season AND you get someone to server for you as a chief.

If you are not interested in serving as range chief but would like to help, we can use a timing volunteer. Note, timing is not a chief position that earns free racing.
