Official World Championship Credentials
Volunteers working at Eva Bandman or the Media Center (1/31 - 2/3) get an official UCI CX World Championship photo credential. The UCI would like all volunteers to pick up your official photo credentials at the Combs Chandler room at the Galt House prior to their volunteers shifts. Credentials should be worn by all volunteers working at the Media Center and at Eva Bandman Park starting Thursday.
While this was not the original plan to distribute volunteer credentials, we are asking for your continued support as we adjust to at the UCI’s request. To make this process easier- the Galt House is allowing you to park your car in front of the building (in appropriate loading areas) so you can quickly run in and pick up your credential and volunteer parking pass. I do realize this may prove difficult for volunteers coming in town on Sat/Sun - please email me directly if this is the case. Below are the hours you can stop by:
Galt House (east side)
Combs Chandler Room 2nd Floor
Saturday: 9am - 5pm
SAT & SUN
Volunteer parking is on River Road east of Eva Bandman (see attached diagram). The assigned lot is across from Champions Park and will be marked by signage. You will need a parking pass to enter (available at the Accreditation Center) the lot. A van will be available to shuttle volunteers to Eva Bandman.
Entering Eva Bandman
Volunteers must enter on the East side of Eva Bandman - located near the volunteer hospitality tent
Volunteer Check In (Volunteer Hospitality Tent)
All volunteers working onsite at Eva Bandman (Thurs - Sun) should be wearing those official credentials. Please make sure it is visible when entering the volunteer tent (east side of Eva Bandman) . Volunteers will be asked to sign a waiver at that time. From there you will be introduced to a team leader who will escort you to your post and help make it a great day for you!
We want this to be a good experience, so we’ve have built time into your shift to discuss provide related information or required . Your team leader or staff member will take the lead on this.
If you are working at Eva Bandman Park - then you are working outside. Please be sure to check the weather and dress accordingly. The volunteer hospitality tent will be heated and each of you is welcome to take a break for lunch or a snack to come warm up. Your team leader will help make sure you get that opportunity. Snacks, lunch and beverages will be available in the tent. We also have some nice swag for you at the end of your shift, so don’t run off without checking out! We encourage you to come early or stay after your shift to enjoy the racing and related fun at the venue.
I know I can speak for all the various entities involved in the production of this event - THANK YOU! You are the reason we are able to make this historic event happen!
