- PARKING: Please download the Volunteer Parking Pass, print, and each day place in the dashboard of your car. Please inform parking attendants you are a volunteer - they will direct you to the volunteer parking lots. Volunteers will not be charged for parking.
- BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING: The Fork swag, great snacks, best seats in the event, meet new friends, learn about the sport from the experts and for those shifts going through lunchtime - lunch will be served!
- WHAT TO BRING: Every job is a little different, but in general, plan on being in the sun most of the day and dress for the weather. It is always best to dress in layers. Some items you might want to consider bringing/wearing ... a chair, sunscreen, chap stick, hat, closed toe shoes.
