Free MotoGP Weekend for YOU!!!
Uncle Duke here and the thread title is no hoax...as several of you already know. The MotoGP staff is once again requesting volunteers from ADV to perform F&C (Flagging and Communications) for upcoming Indy race, August 17-19. Here is the link for you to complete and submit and please DO NOT DAWDLE!!!!! IF you are interested in this truly rare opportunity, DO IT NOW! Here's the link: http://www.motogpworker.com/.
Okee dokey, so why am I asking for help here, at ADV? Good question as usually, a worker needs to have experience flagging events at local or regional events before beiong considered for an international event. But I have met a number of you who came out last year and, truth be told, I've known about ADV for some time and as far as I am concerned, each and every person on this Board has the Right Stuff, in my humble opinion. I vouched for all the ADV folks that came on board with us last year and everyone here should know that our ADV crew served above and beyond, learned our ways quickly and efficiently, worked exceedingly well under pressure, made instant and proper judgments and helped deliver the safest possible racing venue to the best riders in the world.
So once again, I seek your help for this year's Indy MotoGP. Once again, I will vouch for each and every person from ADV....just be absolutely sure that on your application form, you clearly state two things: first and most important, identify yourself as an ADV member and secondly, that you have been requested by Ken Browde to make application. Oh, and if you have any questions, call me, Ken Browde at my home phone of 517.626.7454 or my cell at 517.927.8023. And I promise to be more diligent in checking in here as well.
OH, one more thing. Please be assured that any and all newcomers will be placed with an experienced corner marshal, so no worries about being inexperienced. You will get training. You will get data sheets explaining our flag codes, which are a bit different from AMA or WERA. Its easy to learn. Its fun. Ya get to wear a bright blue Smurf jumpsuit for 3 days in either a blazing sun or a monsoon. You will be well-fed all the time.
And you will never, ever get a better vantage point for watching the absolute best racing in the world.
So what are you waiting for?
All my best and see ya at Indy!
Ken Browde/Uncle Duke
