Flag2GC 2021 Volunteers Needed 8/6-8/8
« on: October 30, 2019, 09:13:14 AM »
Make the commitment now, can you make it?!

This years event we will need more volunteers! 2019 we needed to a minimum of 12 rigs to cover the first 12 checkpoints, but in 2021 we will need more. Our plan is to help recruit volunteers to cover checkpoints from start to finish. There will be an email that goes out to capture everyone's contact info and get your committent so we can cover checkpoints ahead of time as best as we can.

If you would like to add yourself to the Flag2GC Volunteer email list, you can do so at this link (This list is maintained by the Volunteer Coordinator on the Flag2GC committee and not by AZXC, so you will get emails regarding the coordination of all volunteers.)
----->Click here to add yourself to the email list. Select "AZXC Group Support Team" if you have questions about other roles please PM Pinchel. <------

Last year, AZXC helped raise funds for Randy Miller. We raised less than $300, the highest amount in years past was just over $1000. Please consider pooling any donations you plan to make with ours. It will increase our chances of winning swag which we plan to raffle off every year to those who donated. Even if you do not attend or are able to be on the trail we can use your help. We'll add the donate buttons and links when the time comes.

When:  August 7th - August th
Where:  Flagstaff / Grand Canyon
What:  61 mile mountain bike ride from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon
Charity: This ride raises money for the Marine League Charities (aka Toys for Tots, Wounded Marines, etc).
Our Role: We provide on-course support for the riders.  If they break down and/or can't continue, we will shuttle them to the next SAG (Stop And Group) stop.

We typically get up to Flag on Friday afternoon / evening and camp at "Start Camp". !!! Start Camp for us will be somewhere different than the riders, location posted below. !!!

On Saturday, we are up early, before the riders start which is 7am, and drive out to our assigned spots on the trail. We are on parked on the trail for a good portion of the day (bring your own lunch, water, snacks, shade). On Saturday, late afternoon, we make it to the finish line just outside of the Grand Canyon (aka "End Camp"). At End Camp, the Marines cook a big fajita dinner, and Fat Tire donates the beer. After dinner, we have a big bonfire, and goldfish (the crackers) massacre! On Sunday morning, the Marines cook up a big breakfast, and then we break camp to head for home.

This is a great event, and one that I try to make every year.  We can always use more trucks on the trail, but let's try to keep it Nissans only (i.e. don't post this on a non-Nissan board). That being said, if you have a buddy with another make of high clearance or 4wd vehicle, they would be welcome to join us.

Here is a link to the Flagstaff2GC event website:  http://flag2gc.com/

Let's make this an even greater year for Nissans at this event!

Not Attending:


Start Camp location for us will be here, unless the event changes maps. -> https://goo.gl/maps/L4Z2d7QooqL2 , it is near last years 1st checkpoint. Here are the coordinates - (35.395493, -111.756143). It is not far from the 180. The actual camp site might be exact depending on the trees, but we'll be on the left side of the road and before the cattle gate. So if you go over the cattle gate, you missed our camp.

Try to get to our Start Camp as early as possible on Friday, we will be handing out maps and sharing pertinent info. We will need to be ready to roll pretty early as the riders start riding at 7am and they are much much closer to the checkpoints, which gives us less lag time to get there. We all need to be at designated checkpoints before the riders get there. And for you noobs, there are riders that can beat us to checkpoints.


Otherwise, we're there to ensure the safety of the riders so we'll need to cover the checkpoints. If you know anyone who has a high clearance vehicle or 4wd invite the to come along with you.

Just an FYI we will need a few more volunteers to take point this year at key locations from start to finish. As always, volunteers are needed for all sorts of positions at this event so if you know someone who wants to help out but can not on the trail let me know. By now you should have received emails from the Volunteer Coordinator for this entire event.

I will be doing my best to coordinate the trail volunteers, as well as working with CARC and CAMRA. I could use a couple people to step up as Area Leaders. I'd like to have someone coordinate from End Camp to SAG2, then from START to SAG1. Then from SAG1 to SAG2.

Once we hit March, there will be emails to coordinate these efforts in more detail.

We need as many of you back as we can get just to cover the normal spots. If you can not this year, please let us know so we can mark you as "Not Attending"

Thank you

So long as you're available to cover a spot Saturday morning that's good.

If you don't have it already, download the Gaia GPS app now so you have the route gpx loaded. I can give out GPS coordinates to cover locations.

You should be able to preload the Coconino area south rim to Flagstaff. If you do not preload the cell reception may not allow the map to load properly when on the trail. Get 50% off a yearly premium subscription with the link below.
