Corner marshals are needed for the 2019 Melon City Criterium to be held at Weed Park in Muscatine on Sunday, May 26th.  Are you able to help?  Corner marshals are key to a safe and exciting criterium.  Their responsibility is to keep the race course free of vehicles and assist observers in safely crossing the race course.  Below is a map of the various corner marshal posts along the route. Please volunteer to monitor a post during one of the three shifts noted below.  You must be a Melon City Bike Club member.
