Volunteer Info & Registration



There will be two groups of volunteers...judging and logistics (registration, parking, set up, clean up, etc). Both groups will be made of approx. 50 people.

For judges, we are looking for people who are not afraid to get in front of a pissed-off athlete's face and call a no-rep if necessary and stand by their decision if the athlete argues. Judges will be asked to attend a standards meeting possibly Friday, May 1 or the weekend before. Volunteers need to be available to work both Saturday and Sunday.

We are working hard to make sure the qualifying event is something all NorCal athletes can be proud of and the volunteer group is a big part of that. Each volunteer will get an official 2009 NorCal Qualifiers t-shirt.

I am already registered as an Athlete, but may have to sit it out and volunteer this year.

I am having Arthroscopic Surgery on my left shoulder this Friday, and depending on where I am in rehab come May 2nd, I may not be able to compete. If I can do the movements and the weights, I will do it.

Mike, if I cannot complete the Qualifier's WODs, can I be a judge? Either way, just being involved with the event will be an HONOR.

Herm,

Good luck with the surgery this Friday.

Yes, if you feel like you won't be able to do the workouts, we can refund you your entry fee and you can take part in the NorCal Qualifiers as a judge.

But let's wait 'til we get closer to game time before any decisions are made. We'll be posting the workouts a week prior to the Qualifiers, so you should get a sense of what it will take to do the workouts and be able to make a sound decision at that point.

Thanks Mike!

Mike,

Surgery went well. Left shoulder labrum SLAP tear and partially torn subscapularis, both repaired. I have yet to receive the physical therapy instructions or time line.

It doesn't look likely that I will be ready by May, but I want to be involved in the event. I will fill whatever role you need me in... I am happy just to be a part of the event!

Herm,

Good to hear the surgery went well for you.

I'll let Austin know that you're good to volunteer. I'll also get to work on refunding your entry fee.

Herm said...

I got the refund confirmation already! Thank you Mike. I hope to see you soon, hopefully before the qualifiers in May.

Herm,

Please send an email to Austin, who is heading up the volunteer process, so that he can know you're available.

His email is austin@crossfitunlimited.com.
