Transport traffic cones to/from race venue

June 15, 2024

Details

Racine Multisports is marking the course this year, but FSRC is supplying the traffic cones. We need someone with a truck to pick up the cones from the FSRC storage unit and deliver them to the race venue and then return them to storage after the race.
The timing is somewhat flexible - it's even possible that the cones could be dropped off on Friday if that helps. We just need to make sure that they are onsite by Saturday late afternoon and removed from the race venue Saturday night after the race.
