LAKE PLACID, New York ??вЂќ Get up close to the action next month when the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) and Whiteface host the State Farm U.S. Snowboard Cup, a stop on the Nokia World Cup tour.
ORDA is shouting out for volunteers — skiers and riders — to assist with all four days of action from March 3-6. Positions are needed to serve as gatekeepers, slippers, section helpers, hand-timers, runners, manual scorekeepers and drug-testing chaperones. In addition, there is a need for slippers during training days on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 1-2. ORDA volunteers will receive a ski / ride voucher for each day of volunteering.
“Volunteers are the backbone of all our events,” said Marilyn Lamiman, Events / Volunteer Coordinator. “This is an excellent way for volunteers who ski and ride to assist in our event operations. In addition, this is an opportunity to participate in an awesome sport and see riders that will compete next winter in the Torino Olympics.”
Please note that it is not necessary to be a skier or rider to volunteer. Training will be provided. If interested, call 518-523-1655 x 247 or log on to www.orda.org.
