October 21-22, 2023

Volunteer Page

This is the page where we will keep up with who has volunteered to help at the Festival and what jobs are still available. TO VOLUNTEER email the volunteer coordinators.

IMPORTANT: All volunteers are entitled to a Festival t-shirt of their choice, and many to a free ride entry. More Info. TO GET THESE BENEFITS you must do a Festival registration before the end of preregistration on Wednesday, October 18, at noon. To get a special t-shirt, enter before t-shirt cutoff on October 5.

A note about CHILDREN: We will not be assigning any person under the age of 16 to a volunteer position. All of our positions need to be staffed by fully capable adults. While many children can also do the work, it is work and they will not always be able to complete their entire shift. Children that are capable of self-supervision are welcome to come with parents who are working and hang out and help. Smaller children requiring supervision should not be brought without an accompanying non-volunteer supervisor.

Registrar: Roger Pierce

Most of the registrar work is done in the hour or two before the ride starts. It can be intense, but you should be able to go on the ride after completing your job. Because you need to know what you are doing before the hordes arrive, all new registrars must come to Friday night registration to learn the ropes. Registrars normally work both Saturday and Sunday.

Packet Stuffing Party, Thursday, October 19, 3 - 7 pm or 6 - 10 pm at the Pierce/Dimitri residence, 5015 NW 19th Place. From NW 43rd St turn west onto 19th Avenue. At 46th St jog right and then left onto NW 19th Place. 5015 is at the end on the left. Park head on into the curb so we can fit more cars in the cul de sac. We have a barefoot house (if you don't do barefoot, socks are OK).

During the first phase (3 - 6 pm), we count, label, and sort t-shirts.

Eating is scheduled from 6 to 7 pm (PARTY!)

Packet production gets underway by 7 pm (earlier if we can get finished eating earlier). Each person is important during this phase -- if you will have a problem attending, let the coordinator know ASAP!
