DRESS CODE: You will be in the sun most of the day, so feel free to wear a hat or sun glasses and check the weather for the day, as this event normally happens rain or shine. We want you to be comfortable, so wear shorts or pants. Please don't wear anything with holes. Closed toe shoes are required (no flip flops or sandals). If you plan to be a racer assist, then you may want to bring 2 pair of shoes (if you are bringing water shoes make sure that they are closed toe) as one will get wet. You will be given a t-shirt.
Here are brief descriptions of each area. You will get detailed briefings when you arrive to start your shift:
RACER ASSISTS - You WILL get wet! You will need to bring a change of clothes or a towel in addition to shoes that you do not mind getting wet. Your function will be to assist the racers with various things that they may need. The most common assistance will be getting in the water about waist deep and holding their boats before and after the races. You will want to wear shoes for this. Water shoes or old sneakers are advised.
SECURITY BRIDGE - You will walk the event or sit at a check point and make sure folks are having a good time. You will also make sure they follow the rules to ensure a safe event for all. You will mostly walk and stand, however, we will have chairs at the check point areas for you to sit.
SECURITY PIT AREA - You will walk the Pit area or sit at a check point and make sure folks are having a good time. You will also make sure they follow the rules to ensure a safe event for all. You will check wristbands on people entering and exiting the Hot Pit area. You will do a lot of walking and standing.
