Sounds good to me, see you Wednesday morning.

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!

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for offering to wake up early and volunteer at the Flat Half Aid Station.

If you want to bring your kids, friends/ family members , or well behaved dogs that is fine too.
Some of you are working the whole day and some in shifts. The shifts are whole day, 6am to 10 am and 8 to 1130 am.
So far we have:
Me
Clover
Joe
Kate
Teal
Shelley
Joe
Markie Mo
Jeff M
Ben F
Torrey
Nancy
Gary

CARPOOL! There is a lot of traffic for this race. The race starts at 6:30am

I will be getting on the island about 530. I plan to leave Beaverton at 445 am.
I could use 3 people to help me set the tents up.

CARPOOL LOCATION: if you want to carpool with other volunteers, meet at Starbucks parking lot on NW 29th and Yeon/highway 30.

When you get on the island, turn right and drive PAST the start/ finish to Aid Station 6. It is at mile 12. Let the traffic volunteers know you are a volunteer. Look for a Red Lizard tent. Park anywhere that is off the road.

When we first get there we will set up the tables, tents, and pour electrolyte drink or water in cups. It gets really busy around 8am.

Things to bring: sunscreen, warm clothes , bug spray or allergy meds if you need them. You guys can bring cowbells, if someone has a big cooler that would be great. We can use it for volunteer's beverages and snacks. You can bring snacks to share. Remember to stay hydrated. Camaras would be good too and music.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Thanks for organizing, Bhavana!

I'll be there!

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

Just in case anyone is cross referencing Bhavana's directions above with a course map, the aid station is actually number SEVEN, not six as mentioned above...

Thanks, Bhavana, for organizing the TRL aid station. It was definitely the biggest and most supportive aid station on the whole course; very visual, audible, and encouraging. I certainly appreciated all the encouraging support from the volunteers as I came through.

Oh, and I'll reconnect with you about purchasing the TRL singlet.

Thank you!
