Volunteers needed for BUCS wild water race safety and rescue cover at the Washburn

White water safety and rescue volunteers

This is a shout out for any volunteers who are willing to help provide the safety & rescue and first aid cover for the BUCS White Water Canoeing race at the river Washburn near Harrogate this year. If you could help, or you could help promote this opportunity to your club, I’d be really grateful! It would be great if we could increase the size of the safety team this year – we’ve got a target in mind of 25 people, so if you could help, or you know anyone else that could, please – send them this way!

23-24 November 2013
River Washburn, Blubberhouses, Near Harrogate

You get free tea (or coffee!), food and the chance to be generally heroic. We can also offer free camping and party ticket for those who can help all weekend.

There are lots of roles that we need to fill:

  • Throwliners
  • Chase boaters
  • Live-baiters
  • First-aiders
  • Dry organisers and message-runners.

You don’t need any qualifications, and we will help you find a role that is right for you, so even if you’ve got limited experience, this is a great chance to get a little more!

If you’re interested and willing, or even if you can suggest some good (free) places to advertise this opportunity, could you let either me or Emili Peake know on safety@wilderness-development.com, and join the group at https://www.facebook.com/Bucsvolunteers and we’ll look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks so much in advance.
