        Volunteer your help for the MWA’s 50th Annual Whitewater Race, then scroll down to see what you can win!
        The race will be held March 17, 18 & 19. March 24, 25 & 26 has been designated as the back-up weekend .
        Contact Craig: [email protected] to volunteer today.

        Anyone can volunteer, even your favorite mother-n-law! Whitewater experience not required. This gives you an up close and personal experience with racers. It can also give you something to do while your significant other races and ignores you all day. There are half day and all day shifts.

        Some of the many volunteer opportunities:

        Judging – You’ll get training and a front row seat with this position! This is about an 8 hour commitment on Saturday (with a lunch break), a few hours less on Sunday. Contact Michael Dee: [email protected]
        Start – All you need is a voice and the ability to work a stop watch or walkie-talkie.
        Finish – Stop watch, Walkie-talkie
        Announcer – Wouldn’t you love to commentate for a few hours?
        T-Shirt Sales – Spend a few hours at the Big Drop sales table.
        Registration – You will get to know all of the boaters names handing out registration packets and collecting used bibs at the Pavilion
        Timing Tent – You’ll be the first to know the top scores as you hang out in the tent with the computer geeks.
        Boat Lift – Are you agile, energetic and like to play with climbing gear?
        Safety – (The only job that requires boating experience) Here you get to play in your boat or on a rock with a rope and help an occasional swimmer or boat to shore.
        Soliciting Volunteer Drawing Prizes – Do you have an outgoing personality?

        If you have a donation you’d like to make, or a suggestion on who to contact for a donation, contact Linda: [email protected]

        The Volunteer Raffle is held at the end of the day on Sunday, after everyone helps take down the race course.

        Thank you Nantahala Outdoors Center (NOC) for our First Donation! Two People will receive a Free Guided Raft Trip on the Nantahala River.

                                                  I got the immersion research shorts thinking they’d fit alright, but they’re a tad loose. How do I go about exchanging them? Maybe I just need to drink more beer until they fit.
                                                  Thanks for the great weekend you guys.

                                                    Hi Levi,   Congratulations on your awesome performance this past weekend.  I would contact the sponsor directly and ask them if they would be willing to do an exchange.  This may sound “Mr Obvious” but be sure to express sincere appreciation for their sponsorship of our 50th Anniversary MWC.  What a great event it was and thanks to you for being a participant.

                                                    Happy Paddling!  Wahoo
