The only time I can make is the last shift on Sun (take down), but it's already full. Should I show up anyway? You might get some no shows due to the weather.
Is the race rain or shine? Weather for Sun looks wet.

It couldn’t hurt. Thank you Sven. We will be racing Sunday unless lightning comes around.

Race #4 (previous race #5) in the books. Mother nature cooperated and 6MR was close being dry. I helped set the course for the first time, did roving marshal and got applauded crossing the finish 6 times, my 12-year-old posted a faster lap than me. It was an excellent day.

EDIT: can't believe I forgot to THANK @KenS, @jdog, the whole NICA crew. It was a smooth awesome day despite the fact that we lost parts of Saturday to weather and they were literally rebuilding parts of the trail Sunday morning.

@fidodie , here is most of your bike in action :cool:. It worked out great for him.

Here are some photos from Sunday's Quick, Slick Six race at 6 Mile Run. Enjoyed being a stationary race marshal at marshal point 5 on the Red trail, watched the racers drop in on the stream crossing and hammer up the opposite side.

Thanks for the pics, and all the work you put in to hide all the poison ivy so the parents wouldn't freak.
