MINIMUM: 28 People                           MAXIMUM: 39 People


Using racers to fill work assignments:

  • The race split in two sessions so as to yeild a maximum number people for assignments.
  • Class order is key to improve the yeild of available workers.
  • In multi-day races, use only paddlers that are racing that day to guarantee availablity.

Using volunteers to fill work assignments:             
  • Contracts for specific four hour blocks with specific assignment should be used.
  • Make sure that volunteers understand the days and hours that they are signing up for.
  • Volunteers who want to sign up for more four hours per day, can sign additional contract(s).
  • Volunteers do not have an investment in the event.
  • You must get iron clad agreements for their services. The contracts will help!
