Desert Sprints Regatta needs YOU!

If you've arrived at this page....why, yes, we'd love to have you as a volunteer for the 2014 Desert Sprints Regatta!

We will need most of our volunteers from 6 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, although we can also use help on Friday afternoon and before 6 on Saturday. Most of the shifts are 2 to 4 hours long, but if you are willing to work longer, that's great.

Some of our key needs are:

  • Parking. Help guide participants and spectators to open areas of the marina.
  • Set-up. Tables, tents, banners, merchandise...everything to get the regatta ready to go.
  • Registration/information. Giving out packets early, giving out medals later, helping answer questions all day.
  • T-shirts and clothing. Rowing gear practically sells itself, but we still need your help to ring the register.
  • Assistant dock and ramp masters. Help direct incoming and outgoing boat traffic.
  • Safety boat drivers. See the action up close as you follow races down the course.
  • Finish line. Assist the finish line official with timing and order of finish.
  • Results manager. Print out results from the finish line and post them on the regatta HQ bulletin board. Must be knowledgeable computer user.
  • Rovers. You might end up doing any of the above! Please be flexible and bring a cell phone.

Thanks again to all of our wonderful volunteers—it couldn't happen without you!
