  • No prior experience is needed for many of the tasks
  • You can help out AND still run your course of choice
  • Your entry fee is FREE if you help out with a meet!  

Typical ways to assist are:  helping with starts and finishes, checking in folks at registration, and picking up control flags after the course closes.
