Is there a team "matron" or similar?

Some friends and I go on a group ride every year and use one guy's mom's house as our gathering point, bike assembly station, etc.

I have trip t-shirts made up each year and would like to have one made for my buddy's mom. Is there a cycling term or name that would be appropriate to put on her shirt?

Thanks for any help,

Soigneur - from wiki:

Soigneurs, who are assistants responsible for various things like feeding, clothing, and escorting the riders.

Thanks Zorro,

I didn't get any bites on my question in this forum for a while, so I cross-posted my question over in the "Road Cycling" area and got some responses.

I ended up having "Directeur Sportif" imprinted on her shirt. Soigneur is probably more appropriate, but she is one hell of a cook, and flattery might get me some extra dessert....

Thanks again for your help,
