Cliffhanger & Sheffield City Race Helper Request
This year, the Orienteering at the Outdoor City's FREE Cliffhanger festival is bigger than ever before, with SYO offering Maze orienteering on Devonshire Green for the duration of the weekend, and the Sheffield City Race on the Sunday, which is part of the UK Urban League. The Saturday will also see the 2017-18 Schools’ League Prizegiving (Devonshire Green @ 2pm). But with so much going, we’re going to need a lot of helpers to make sure it all runs smoothly!
Why not come in for the whole day, and lend a hand at the orienteering for a couple of hours?
The maze will be open on Sat 7th/Sun 8th July, from 10am til 5pm both days. In addition, the Sheffield City Race is being held on the Sunday, Reg 10-12, Starts 10:30-12:30.
For the maze to run smoothly it would be good to have at least 4 volunteers at any one time, particularly in the afternoon, with each doing a suggested shift of 2 hours.
For the urban all the usual jobs & slots will need filling, times roughly 10am - 2pm.
To see the jobs and times that need filling for both urban and maze, please see the Cliffhanger helper timetable.
Please email Dom if you can offer some time to help out on the maze. If you are able to help at the urban please email Aislinn. All helpers (maze & urban) receive a 50% discount on their entry fee for the urban. Please pre-enter using discount code - dsd68z.
There will be no setting up to do for most of the time slots - simply turn up and help. Helpers can be both experienced and relative newcomers - a range of experience is great to give different views of the sport - so please don't let inexperience put you off helping.
Thank you very much. It promises to be an exciting weekend – hope to see you there!
