Checkpoint checker & helper - sign teams in & out, make sure they have their mandatory gear in their sled, and direct them to where they can park their team, or meet their handler. Tell the handlers and/or mushers where they can access water. Keep food and water available for the mushers/handlers in the tents and at least one fire going in the wood stove in one of the two tents. On the Friday, extra help is required for the re-start of the 8-dog race, and start of the 6-dog race. At the closing of this checkpoint, help take the checkpoint down and clean things up.
