The 2014 Arctic Winter Games are quickly approaching and RCN has volunteered to be the Official AWG Greeters at the Fairbanks International Airport as the teams arrive. Our focus will be to cover a 3 day period prior to the start of the Games (March 13, 14, 15). We will be meeting and greeting athletes, coaches, and chaperones when they arrive in the Golden Heart City and direct them to the baggage claim area and then to their specific transportation pick-up point.
We are putting together all of the specific details on the schedule and more information will be forthcoming. The beauty of this task is that it doesn’t conflict with volunteering for other activities, such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, etc.
The most important task at this time is for volunteers to get registered on the AWG website and identify themselves as being part of the RCN Team. Sign up for Volunteers has a December 31 deadline. All volunteers are required to fill out the AWG Volunteer application, and sooner is better, as the AWG would like to firm up their volunteer lists as soon as possible.
Any volunteer that contributes 12 hours or more to AWG will receive a wonderful AWG winter jacket.
See below to help you navigate to the correct website and complete the application process. A couple of questions should be uniformly answered for our Team application, which has already been submitted. If you are interested in volunteering please also contact me at your first opportunity as you complete the application process. I do not have access to AWG volunteer lists, so will only know of your interest when you contact me directly. This will enable me to keep you updated with the schedule and other important information as things develop.
OR Go to the AWG Home page (http://awg2014.org/) and navigate to the volunteer sign up.
During the application process you will encounter these questions:
- Have you been “recruited”? YES
- Specific area? Greetings Group at Airport – Running Club North
- Were you referred by current volunteer? Yes // George Berry – RCN
- Availability: Select all these: “Prior to Games; Thurs 13th; Friday 14th: Sat 15th”
If you have any questions, please contact me at any time.
