Post 2010 MS150 Bike Motorcycle Marshals Needed!

This is the third year I'm posting up for volunteers to help marshal the Keystone Country Ride MS150 Bike event. Last year this event raised over $400,000 to help people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, for medical research and ultimately a cure. Almost 500 bicyclists participated last year in this 2 day event with close to 100 volunteers working to make the event the success it has become.

Rick (rikguy33), James (Phenix_Rider), Bill (Bill), Joe and Karen (zedpilot), and corky (dgindles) helped out last year and I hope to have you guys back as well as many others from SCPMC. About a dozen other motorcyclists also helped marshal the event. We can certainly use more!!!!

The ride will be held July 24th and 25th this year (Sat & Sun). The ride starts in Hollidaysburg and travels around 75 miles via some of the nicest back roads in central PA to State College and returns via a different route back to Hollidaysburg the next day. The motorcycle marshals are responsible for controlling traffic along the route, for helping riders in trouble and sagging the group. Generally watching the flock and controlling the intersections along the way.

I am in charge of the motorcyclists for the event so you have the distinct honor of working for me both days.

The pay ain't all that great: You get free food both days including a nice dinner and breakfast in State College. You'll get a t-shirt or two. You will also be invited to attend an awards banquet a couple of months after the event where you will receive another good meal, a certificate of appreciation and recognition for your help.
Most importantly you will be helping fight this deadly and debilitating disease and you will earn the respect and gratitude of the cyclists and far more importantly of people suffering from MS. This is a way you can make a real difference for local individuals with MS as well as help the national organization continue to fund research into treatments and hopefully someday a cure.

Unlike the last few years Penn State is NOT allowing us to use their dorms so everyone will have to stay at a hotel.

You will have 2 options in State College:

1. The Penn Stater for $50/person ($100/room). The ride ends here on Saturday and starts here on Sunday. The Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast will be at the Penn Stater. Probably 90% of the cyclists, staff and volunteers, me included, will likely stay there.
2. Days Inn for $25/person ($50/room). If memory serves it's not bad. There should be a shuttle to take you to and from the Penn Stater.

If you are coming from out of town and need a room the Friday before the ride we will have rooms available at the Marriot in Altoona. Price should be $44.50.

If you want to help but have a hard time legitimately coming up with the funds to pay for the room in SC please PM me. I will try to work something out.

As marshals we do have a good time and it's for a great cause. This is one of those things where you see your direct efforts help people with MS and you will get an enormous amount of respect and gratitude from the cyclists along the way.
Here are some pics from last year: http://www.keystonems150.com and see this thread for more of the marshals: viewtopic.php?p=73560#p73560

Anyway, if you are interested please post up. Yell if you have any questions as well. I would love to have around 2 dozen motorcyclists total so the more guys/gals I can get from here the more fun we'll have.

Thanks,
Mike

OK, I definitely have a "mashalling partner" with me for the MS150... :) And Link told me they already made my reservation for the Penn Stater. Do I need to do any paperwork for the Marshalling?

I guess i need a room for Friday night, too...

I should say: I'll be there if I don't have to share a bed with Bill again. I said I'd keep him away from the livestock but, that wasn't what I had in mind!
