In our last post, Chris Greene Lake race director Dave Holland noted that the swim’s success depends on the help of volunteers. If you’re not swimming (or if you have a friend or family member who’s swimming and you’re going along for the trip) Dave could use your help.
He’s looking for the following volunteers for the July 11 event:
T-shirt distribution – 1 person to get the correct sizes to the swimmers as they check in.
Timing – 4 people
Finish line – 3 people, 2 in the water, one with Popsicle sticks (this is not a treat for the finishers. The sticks have each swimmer’s order-of-finish number written on them.)
Finish table – 2 people to record and collect Popsicle sticks
Social – 2 people to prepare in the morning
I volunteered at Chris Greene 2 years ago. My job was to keep people in their order of finish as they entered the “finish chute” after crossing the finish line. It was a great way to get an up-close perspective on some hotly-contested finishes.
