Volunteers and support boat drivers wanted for Regional Sprints 2013

As waka ama keeps growing in our region, this year’s Regional Sprint Champs on 7/8 December look set to be the biggest so far…groupvolunteers

In order to run the event and to make the racing as smooth as possible, we are looking for helpers that can assist with things like

  • setting up the event (setting up the registration tent, putting lane number on canoes, launching canoes in loading bay),
  • assisting key officials at their stations (eg spotters, officials for aligner and flag boat, drivers, runners, announcer, backup timer), and
  • packing up (pulling tents down, cleaning up the foreshore, rubbish removal).

The shifts are as follows:

  • Setting up (6.30am – 8am)
  • Morning race operations (7am – 12.30pm)
  • Afternoon race operations (12pm – 5pm)
  • Packing up (5pm – 5.30pm)

If you can help, please contact Gaylene Sciascia on 021-620 408 or hoetonga@gmail.com. Please let us know your name, phone number, email, and preferred station.

We hope to hear from you soon.
