Volunteers required for assembling trestles

Many thanks to the many helpers who came forward to build the trestles for use at the WOC Sprint Races. 401 bits were successfully transformed into 48 trestles (a couple of bits were spare) with only one failing the stringent quality assurance process with some legs back to front.  At 15 minute a trestle without your help we might have been struggling to complete the task by 31 July given so many other commitments.
