We are hosting the Gil Young Memorial LCM Meet / Northwest Zone / Oregon Champs Long Course Meters Meet at Mt Hood, Friday-Sunday, August 22nd-24th. It's time to start preparing and lining up volunteers for the meet. Warm-ups begin at 3PM on Friday with competition beginning at 4PM. On Saturday, warm-ups begin at 2PM and the meet begins at 3PM, and on Sunday warm-ups begin at 8AM and the meet begins at 9AM (full meet info is also below). I am looking for volunteers to fill the following positions and asking for donations to our hospitality room. The hardest seats to fill are the timers chairs and we will need 14 timers each day. If you plan on swimming in the meet, as we hope most of you do, please volunteer whatever time you can. Talk up the meet to family and friends; you can‘t get any closer to the action then a timers chair, and if they are going to be there cheering you on, please ask if they wouldn't mind volunteering. Take a look below, and if something strikes your fancy, email me back what you would like to do and when you are available and I will add you to my volunteer list! Thanks to you all in advance.

Head Timer (1 per day)
Head timer is in charge of starting extra watches at the beginning of each heat so that if a timer misses the start of the race they can get a back-up watch from the head timer.
Runners (2 per day)
Runners help take timers results to the crows nest for entry into the Dak-Tronics system.
Timers (14 per day)
Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the meet begins on the day(s) you are to time for a timers meeting (time TBA).
**Timers must be at least 12 years of age**
Marshals (2 per day)
Marshals watch the warm-up/warm-down area to be sure people are not diving when they are not supposed to, help clear lanes for starts and after warm-ups and breaks so competition can begin. Plan to arrive arrive at least 10 minutes before warm-up begins on the day(s) you are to marshal.
Clean Up Crew (Sunday only)
Not sure what you can do to help…let me know what day(s) you are available and I will find something for you to help out with. The more the merrier!!
I will be purchasing drinks (water, soda, coffee, etc) and some other large items. Bring whatever you like. Remember, this is mostly for the officials and our own volunteers; snacks, finger foods, tasty summer treats, etc. If making a hospitality donation, let me know what you are planning to bring on which day so that I can plan ahead for extra goodies if needed.
