Virtual Birkie Signup
We are looking for some assistance for our upcoming Virtual Birkie Race on Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th. Thank you for considering this opportunity! Below is a descirption of the different volunteer roles, followed by a signup form. Please email Kate Ullman at: [email protected] if you have any questions. Thank you for supporting this event, it is a fantastic opportunity to introduce our trails to Birkie skiers and make sure that they have a great experience at Ashwabay!
Virtual Birkie Ambassadors (2 per time slot): Ambassadors will be at the Nordic Trailhead, which is the start/finish area for the virtual race. They will help answer questions for Birkie skiers about the course, amenities, aid stations, timing or other questions. They will also welcome other non-race skiers and make sure that they know that all of our trails are still open to the public, and share a bit about the virtual Birkie Event so other skiers know what to expect if they see skiers in bibs. We will provide answers to FAQs for these volunteers. WHO: Anyone can serve in this role, you don't need to know anything special about skiing or the Birkie, just welcome people and help them get the information they need!
Start/Finish Aid Station and Timing (1 per time slot): We'll have a self serve water station at the Nordic Trail Head, and we'll need to be sure that the water stays full and unfrozen. There will also be a timing clock, and this person can support skiers in recording their start and finish times and tracking their completion of the route. WHO: Anyone can serve in this role.
Alpine Hill Crossing (1 per time slot): The race route crosses the bottom of the Alpine ski hill, and we'd like to have someone stationed there during the busy times to be sure that the XC skiers can cross the hill safely. WHO: Anyone can serve this role, you just need to be willing to talk to the users of the Alpine hill and direct the XC skiers across the hill.
