    Smile volunteer

    I wrote the head of security almost 2 weeks ago about my buddy and I doing it again. No response?
    Maybe it's too early to get on the list. I'll write again in a few weeks.

    But how?

    So I when I first heard about volunteers needed I quickly started trying to volunteer. Everyone seemed excited but yet told me basically to wait till I got there and sign up then. I'm not sure if that was the best advice since now here I am with a week off, live in Roseburg Oregon, have a BMW, truck and am a professional in the medical field and not yet signed up for a volunteer responsibilities...

    And my wife is interested too!

    My opinion is that there should be obvious sign up sheets to put your name where you want.

    Btw, i am still volunteering but just waiting till i get there.

    If there IS an easier way I am all ears.

    It is up to the individual Committee Chairs. The Registration, Beer and Shuttle committees have all asked for Volunteers on the forum. I'm looking for people still.

    The Rally shuttle moves the people but, the people don't move without Volunteers! This is a fun Committee as you meet lots of rally goers. And you get to see the entire Rally grounds as you Volunteer!

    Volunteer

    First, let me thank you for volunteering, there is no way we could be successful without members like yourself.
    Having been in that same position myself, we would very much welcome your assistance in Awards. While it would be great if you had a bit of experience with (or understanding of) Google Maps, it is not mandatory. A friendly face and outlook are the best qualifications you could have. You would be inside (air conditioned and dry), with all the assistance and support you need. Just contact me directly and let us know when you would like to serve - since you are a volunteer we can easily work with whatever you desires might be.

    Thank you for your support,

    Don Hamblin

    Three years ago, I broke my hip a week before the Redmond rally.

    Barring any unforeseen mishaps, I would like to volunteer for anything that does not involve a lot of walking or lifting.

    I will be available the entire week.

    I had 3 shifts at Sedalia as a shuttle driver and would like to volunteer for similar duties at Salem. I will come to the Rally early (Tuesday/Wednesday) and would be available to help with set-up or registration. My e-mail is rogerbump@comcast.net

    Committee Chairs

    I've been a Committe Chair for it seems like forever! I've never heard of any set rules other than the Volunteer booth asigning spots as needed.
    Well, I figured out a long time ago, that there are never enough Volunteers to go around. So I figured that, as a Committe chair, I'd take the responsibility of finding my own Volunteers from the people that I know and are going to be at the Rally.
    Must be my special gift of tact and diplomacy since I have my schedule locked in before I leave home. We all have fun and noone has to volunteer for more than two hours. Any excess Volunteers that I have are directed to the Volunteer booth.
