Welcome to our Race Club/Work Sign up system. Once you have read the volunteer descriptions below, you will find the link for volunteer sign up at the bottom of this section. The form is an “open” spreadsheet with three separate tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet for Clean Up, GMVS Club races, and USSA & FIS races. You will need to sign up for the desired duty and provide your email address. An email will go out prior to your commitment confirming your race club/work date. If you are unable to fulfill your assignment, remove your name from the spreadsheet. If you do so after the reminder email,you will then be responsible for finding a replacement. You will need to work a total of 3 full day credits to receive your race deposit back at the end of the season.
