Title: Ramp volunteer
Post by Bob M. on 09/12/17 at 09:55:38
My 2017 race did not pan out as well as the 2014 and 2015 340s. As much as I want redemption next year I will sit it out and let somebody else try. That being said I still want to be involved. What is the process for being a ramp volunteer at one of the checkpoints from Glasgow to the end? Thanks

2017 did go as planned for me, either.  DNF at the confluence with the Osage.

But you’re on to something.  I had a satisfying enough time being useful, helping boats beach and depart at Mokane Access and Hermann while I “hitchhiked” with kayak back to St. Charles.  It wasn’t the plan, but it helped ease the pain.

We are working on an online sign up for 2018 volunteers with 4 hour blocks of time per shift at each checkpoint.  I've never been around any event with better volunteers than the MR340.  This past year was by far the most astounding group in sheer numbers and hours.  Wow.  Multiple caravans that hopped checkpoint to checkpoint and I never saw them sleep.  Or without a smile on their faces.

Volunteers were the greatest this year, thank you, thank you, thank you to all of them.
