Early Morning Race Day Setup

October 12, 2019

Details

We could use a few extra hands first thing in the morning...but it's early, y'all! We usually start setup at 5:45 am - 6:00 am. The shelter is a little bit of a walk from the parking lot and when you are carrying heavy-ish boxes and tables in the dark, it can get a little rough. Any early risers?
