We need volunteers to work the stages. Stage Captains, starters, sweep, radios, road closers, etc. Contact Charles Sherill to step up.

An excellent resource of information about working a rally and what it entails is available here:

The SandBlast rally relies heavily on volunteers to organize and operate this event. These events require a large number of people to insure the safety of workers and competitors alike. These positions include control operators, course marshalls, ham radio operators and spectator marshalls just to name a few. We recognize the efforts and dedication of all volunteer workers by establishing a new policy (see below) to thank you for your participation.

Workers will receive:

  1. Lunch on Saturday
  2. T-Shirts free
  3. Pizza / Beer party afterwards
  4. Lodging for persons traveling great distances (Contact Charles Sherill personally for requests for lodging)
  5. We're working on a $1,500.00 gas and hotel fund. A photocopy of valid drivers license and gas receipts dated 11-21-03 & 11-23-03 to have a check mailed to you after the event. We'll do our best using this money to help with hotel rooms and gas for the workers.

In fact, some of the best spectating spots available are working a "road closure", where you monitor a closed road that connects to the rally stage! You're right up at the action!
