|On the 6th, 7th & 8th of August 2010, some of the best whitewater open canoe slalom paddlers in the nation will compete in the ACA Open Canoe Slalom Nationals and North American Championships at Adventure Sports Center International in McHenry, MD. In fact, paddlers from all across this country and Canada as well as few from Japan are planning to join the competition. The organizers expect a festival like atmosphere to permeate the ASCI race site on race days as well as the several practice days prior to the actual competition.|
|It takes the support of a lot of people to pull off an event of this size. The race is scheduled to run from 8:00 am to 11:00 am in the morning and 4:00 to 7:00 pm in the afternoon with rafting taking place from 11:30 to 3:30 pm in the middle of the day. We need volunteers to fill an AM shift from 7:00 to 11:00 am and a PM shift from 3:00 to 7:00 pm, especially on Friday the 6th. We have assignments that will be right in the middle of the action! Jobs include gate judging, timing and scoring. Volunteers will receive a packet of area discount tickets & goodies, and if training is required we'll supply that too. You can work part of the day and go rafting or watch the races the rest of the time. What a deal! You can even volunteer for parts of all three days! Volunteers will be asked to "check-in", at Race HQ at the Travel Trailer prior to the scheduled start of their work assignment, to get their "Volunteer Packet" and last minute instructions.|
