The Calgary Dragon Boat Festival is looking for volunteers for the two day event.
If you are 16 and older and would like to manage the dock and get front row seats of the race course, this is for you. You will need to be strong enough to guide and hold the dragon boats as they come in and out of the docks, help paddlers in and out of boats and stabilizing the boats.
We will need volunteers to help time the boats crossing the finish line. There will be a test run on Friday August 11th for the Charity Practice races so you will know what is involved.
There's morning shifts (7:30am to 12:00pm) and afternoon shifts (12:30pm to 4:30pm) to choose from for Dock and Timing positions - but feel free to sign up both slots and days if you are available.
