What’s Expected of Me as a Volunteer?
Our volunteers are valued members of the event organizing committee, as your involvement in the event ensures that our swimmers are safe and that the event runs smoothly. We ask that you arrive at the appointed time and be familiar with your role and the event course. With the event starting at 7:40a we will have a pre-race volunteer meeting at 7:15a to finalize roles and answer questions that may not have been answered ahead of time. Most volunteers will be based in kayaks or boats on the water so we want you to be aware of swimmers and warn away any crafts that may be entering the area. We will have Hague FD, Lake George Coast Guard Aux and the Warren County Sheriff’s Department providing motorcraft support to all of our swimmers and kayakers – you are not alone! Please wear clothing suitable for being on the water on a hot day with the sun coming down. Hats, lotion, shirts, sunglasses, etc. Upon completion of the event, a check will be mailed to all qualified water safety volunteers after we confirm your contact details. This will be within two weeks of the event.
