We Need Race Course Installers!
We will be installing the race course this weekend, March 30 and possibly into Monday March 31 if necessary. The race course will host races for OSU Women and 4 other Division I colleges on April 5 at 9:00 am to noon, Covered Bridge Regatta April 12-13 and the Northwest Collegiate Rowing Conference Championships (NCRCs) on May 3 from 9:00 to noon. The race course will be left in from April 5 to May 3.
We need a mimium of 9 volunteers who can put on the white buoys on all 7 of the lane lines. No experience necessary! We will train you!
There will be 3 launches with 3 people in a launch, 1 experienced driver, 1 buoy unwinder and 1 buoy clipper on-er. It takes about 1 hour per lane line if the water is calm and after you get the hang of it. We will have the 4th launch filling in as needed. We will start about 10:00 am on Sunday and am looking for 9 people who can help with this for 4 hours from 10 to 2 on Sunday. You should wear warm old clothes and old gloves that can get wet and dirty and have rain gear as it may be raining. Sunday weather looks a bit better than Saturday. This group will earn $625 for their club/organization. If we have people from more than one club we will divide the $625 proportionally.
Interested? Contact Dave Lingenfelder.
And here is another opportunity!
We are also looking for volunteers to help install stake boats and to take the stake boats out the following times:
1. 2-4 people for Friday morning, April 4 from 9:00 am to noon to install 5 stakeboats for the OSU Women’s races on Sat April 5.
2. 2-4 people for Sat afternoon, April 5, probably about 12:00 to 3:00 to take thes stake boats out.
3. 4 people for Friday morning, May 2, 9:00 am to noon to install 7 stakeboats for the NCRCs on May 3
4. 4 people for Sat afternoon May 3, probably about 12:00 to 3:00 to take 7 stake boats out.
The UO crew will be taking out the buoys either May 3 or 4 as well. Again contact Dave Lingenfelder if you can help out.
