Hey Everyone!
We need 15 to 20 people to volunteer at the Red Lizard aid station July 4 th at the Flat Half. We will set up the station, hand out water and energy drinks, cheer and take pictures of the runners.
We need at least 5 people who will stay at the end to help break down the aid station and take supplies back to the start/finish area.
Foot Traffic will provide everything we need for the aid station. We can bring signs, music, cow bells, snacks and drinks for ourselves. You can sign up by replying to this post.
There are a few shifts: all day, 6am to 10 am, and 8 am to 1130 am

I haven't decided if I'm running the half or the 5k yet, but I can probably put in a late shift after I finish. Will there be Krispy Kreme's involved? :drool:

I am running the half this year... but will plan to swing coming by afterward.

Honestly, my favorite part about helping out at this aid station (which has been part of my July 4th tradition!) is stuffing my face with Sauvie Island raspberries that are sometimes next to the aid station. I am sure this is probably agricultural theft... but I cannot help myself. Anyway, all this to say that this is usually a really fun time.

Come on you guys, this is fun! I've volunteered 2 times and it was way fun! Last year I was able to run the Firecracker 5 k and still volunteer. I remember the Krispie Kremes from last yr. I think we will be able to make this happen again. Also the berries are wonderful!

I fly in to Portland from Europe the day before.

If I'm not too jet lagged I'll be there to sling liquids.

Bhavana, Hi! I'm in for all day!

If I had some ham I could make ham and eggs if I had some eggs.

SIgn me up for the 8am-11:30am shift plus the BBQ. What should I bring for that? Where should we meet if we're coming for the later shift?

Shelly, Hi! As for where to meet, just go to the Red Lizard Aid Station 7. Check out the course map at http://www.foottraff...ads/map2012.jpg for it's location. Check out the Flat Half website (http://www.foottraffic.us/flat/)for info on traffic/driving.

If you come at 8AM, the races will have already started and there is limited ability to drive on the island during them.

As for what to bring, bring whatever you'd like; salads, fruit, chips, desserts, anything "picnic-like" would be fine.

See you there!

My better half is running the race, so I will be around for whatever portion of the day he's there. I'd think this would be around 6, but it might be a little after. I'll get there as early as I can.

Teal, maybe we can carpool out there for the 8am shift? I'd be happy to pick up anyone else coming from the NW area too, just let me know!

I might "run" the 5K and swing by to help out at the aid station afterwards. :sorcerer:
