Volunteer registration is now open for the CopperDog 150 and CopperDog 40 sled dog races this coming March 1-3, 2013. There are literally hundreds of shifts and positions to fill, so we need your help. Please take a look at the volunteer schedule, find something that suites your liking and sign-up for as many shifts as you want. Please watch out for conflicts in your schedule.
The volunteer system has some new features. There are many more jobs listed, including jobs that are by appointment or internal to the race. You'll have to contact our volunteer coordinator to sign-up for these jobs as they require experience or special gear. When you sign-up you can also indicate how many people you are bringing with you. This makes it easy for a family member or leader of a team to include multiple people with their registration, although we strongly encourage people to have their own account and volunteer schedule.
When you register more than just yourself for a volunteer shift, you become responsible to bring all of the people you indicated. Kids age 14 and over are considered able bodied volunteers, but there must be at least one adult (18+) on each shift. Kids 13 and younger are welcome to volunteer, but do not count towards the minimum number of volunteers that must be present. Volunteering is fun for the entire family, we just need to make sure that our bases or covered to provide a safe event for all.
The volunteer system is still a little buggy and might blow up in your face from time to time. Please let us know if this happens to you, if the system doesn't work as expect, or you just have ideas on how to improve it. Send an e-mail to Todd Brassard with a description of the problem. Cut and paste the error if you can. Thanks for using our online system to volunteer for CopperDog!
