The CCAP needs your help to run the Oyster Cross Series! This is a new series and we want to make it a hit.

Oyster Cross races are on Tuesday nights, starting in August and continuing into September. Race dates include August 27th, September 3rd, 10th, and 17th.

If you sign up to help set up the course, you'll get your race fee waived. You only get it comp'd if you sign up ahead of time though. There is a huge set-up that takes place EVERY week because we aren't allowed to keep the course in place.
Set-up starts around 2:30-3PM, which I know is difficult for many to get out of work but maybe once or twice, if you can cut out early to help make this event successful, it is very much appreciated.
