|Angus Tyner||Aug 11 2014, 10:33am||Also first aider, race marker needed.|
I'm busy with NC 1 so not in position to RD. If race is going ahead, I need laptop, preferably not at last minute so I have time to relearn how it all works again!
|Rene Borg||Aug 11 2014, 3:11pm||Just replied to Rachel, Angus. Its too short notice for me to race direct but can mark the course and help any race director with advice on how we organised this event in the past - so if anyone wants to step up I can take a call with them and run over the main things to know.|
|Rachel Cinnsealach||Aug 11 2014, 4:00pm||That's great Rene. karen is going to do Race director. I have sorted permission from Coilte. do we deffo need a key to the gate? will the gate be opened and what time will it shut at?|
|Rachel Cinnsealach||Aug 11 2014, 4:02pm||Scrap that last comment, I have just heard back from Helena, in Coilte and the gate will be left open until 9.30 pm.|
|Rachel Cinnsealach||Aug 11 2014, 4:03pm||Now we just need a first Aider.|
|Regina Kelly||Aug 11 2014, 5:45pm||Is anyone leaving relatively late to this? I would love to get a lift if possible? there's nothing on the carpool at the moment. I work in Ballsbridge so can get to N11 etc |
|David Pender||Aug 11 2014, 7:46pm||Hi what time do you need volunteers for? Thanks,|
|Karen Devenney||Aug 11 2014, 8:55pm||Thanks to all who've volunteered so far. Still looking for a First Aider though...any takers??|
It'd be great if volunteers could get down for 6pm or as close to as possible. If anyone particularly wants to marshal on the course, please let me know and other than that we'll figure out roles on the day depending on who we have.
Happy to accept any tips, advice etc on what to do as complete novice when it comes to RD and I'll do my very best to keep the blonde questions and blank looks to a minimum!
See you all on Wed:)
|Caoimhin MacMaolain||Aug 11 2014, 10:07pm||I am happy to do first aid. I'll run as well, but should be fine to do the two things.|
|Rachel Cinnsealach||Aug 11 2014, 10:54pm||Hi Caoimhin, you are very good to step forward. In general, The RD, Laptop operator or First Aider cannot run, (IN case some-one gets injured, on the course, while the first aider is running). Caroline was around at my house tonight, she is injured herself and can't run, so I put her down for it. |
I have added you as a running volunteer thoufgh, cause Karen is short on volunteered and she could realy do with a hand. Hope that's OK?
|Eamonn Hodge||Aug 12 2014, 12:58am||Hi Karen, I thought I had already volunteered in a non-running capacity but I was mistaken. Happy to marshal or do whatever is useful. |
|Karen Devenney||Aug 12 2014, 4:17pm||Thanks a million to all the additional volunteers, makes my job much easier!|
A few reminders about tomorrow...
*There will be no early start
*Please car pool where at all possible as parking is limited - there is parking at Ashford House
*Prize giving is at Ashford House

|Farrant Stuart||Aug 13 2014, 1:30pm||Hi James. A lift would be great if you still have space. Let me know where you're leaving from. Stuart firstname.lastname@example.org|
|John Collins||Aug 13 2014, 1:47pm||Hi James,|
Would take a lift from Donnybrook as well if space left - jcollinsdub at gmail dot com
|Shay Foody||Aug 13 2014, 3:07pm||Hi James,|
Would you have another space left in your car? shayfoody at gmail com is my email if you do.
|Shay Foody||Aug 13 2014, 4:19pm||I have a lift now. Thanks.|
|Michael De Burca||Aug 13 2014, 5:10pm||devils glen adventure centre is not on google maps|
|Karen Devenney||Aug 13 2014, 5:43pm||Coming from Dublin, turn right at the first roundabout when you come into AshFord, then stick to the Glendalough Rd until you see Devil's Glen on your right. Remember to carpool from Ashford House if at all possible. Car park is free after 5pm|
|Caoimhin MacMaolain||Aug 13 2014, 10:30pm||Great race tonight. Really well marked and interesting route. Thanks to Karen and others for the organisation.|
|Karen Devenney||Aug 13 2014, 11:44pm||Well done to all who ran tonight. Thanks to my crack team of volunteers, you were all brilliant! Special mention to|
Rene and Aoife for marking the course
Eamon and Caoimhin for demarking
Photographers Kevin and Jerome too
Zoe for taking charge of the numbers
The Walker family for the best Cash system I've seen yet!
And a massive, massive thanks to Rachel, Angus and especially Vivian for all your help and advice, tonight wouldn't have done so smoothly without it!
Have to admit I was more than a little nervous about taking on this role, especially as really I'm still a newbie but it was a great night and I'm delighted I did it. So for anyone else out there that has ever thought about doing RD but worried that their too inexperienced, in my opinion......just do it!
|James H Cahill||Aug 14 2014, 6:05pm||Thank you Karen and all your volunteers for a very enjoyable, well organised race.|
|David Pender||Aug 14 2014, 10:20pm||Hi caroline. Thanks for all your excellent help at race. Made it home in one piÃ¨ce.MRI tomorrow so fingers crossed.|
|Angus Tyner||Aug 15 2014, 10:38am||No wifi in Ashford House so results could not be uploaded then. The laptop is in transit to its next race, but results will be posted ASAP|
|Barry John||Aug 16 2014, 7:05pm||Are there any results for this race from last wednesday yet? thanks|
|John J Barry||Aug 17 2014, 10:02am||Mr Barry,|
As Angus said results were not posted since Pol did not have WiFi connection on wed. Im sure Pol will post results the second he gets the laptop and/or results.
|Pól Ó Murchú||Aug 17 2014, 10:08pm||Results up...Finally! Apologies for the delay. There was no wifi in the pub Wednesday to get them up after the race - the laptop wnet off and there was some trouble sending them on to me... and then I was busy myself having a life...Sorry Barry John - won't happen again! ;-( me bad ;-)|
