Superior Fall Trail Race 2018 – Volunteer Email 11

Date: Tuesday August 28th, 2018
Subject: Superior Fall Trail Race 2018 Volunteer Email 11

[Those of you that have been signed up for awhile have seen several emails from me thus far, for those of you that signed up to volunteer more recently you will want to review the previous volunteer emails from this year which are available on our website HERE – Volunteer Email 3 is by far the most comprehensive so please be sure to review that one if you have not already. Also, please don’t be startled that this is email # 11, many of them from 4 to 10 were for very specific breakout groups and do not apply to everyone!]

Hi All,

First off, I want to share another heartfelt thank you for volunteering for the 2018 Superior Fall Trail Race, Friday Sept 7th and Saturday Sept 8, 2018 – we could not do it without you!

Volunteer Assignments:
Volunteer assignments are set and are available HERE – if we have assigned you too little, too much or you see anything that is off, please let us know. Anyone that wants to come to the finish on Saturday and help there from the early afternoon until 11:00PM is also welcome, just come find us and we will put you to work! Also, if you are interested in helping us with cleanup at our home in the Twin Cities the Monday after the race, please let us know!

Volunteer Jobs:
The jobs corresponding to volunteer assignments can be found HERE – this link contains important information about each volunteer job, directions and more.

Aid Station Coordination:
For those working aid station, aid station captains will be given your contact info and may be in touch, if you do not hear from them or need to get in touch with them please let us know and we can get you connected if you would like, otherwise you can just report to your aid station at the scheduled time.

Volunteer Lodging:
ATTACHED is the volunteer lodging plan / unit and room assignments for those that have indicated they need some help with lodging – it is in .PDF format, you should be able to do a CTRL+F to search the document for your name or simply just look through the document [DOCUMENT OMITTED FROM THIS EMAIL]. We have a great volunteer turnout this year and a large number of people indicated they needed (communal) lodging – so space will be tight but should still be comfortable. Complete info about volunteer lodging can be found HERE – if you are staying, please read this! If you are still in need of a place to stay (it will almost certainly be floor-space at this point) and have not indicated that to us, please email me ASAP.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO CHECK IN AT / WITH THE FRONT DESK AT CARIBOU HIGHLANDS WHEN YOU ARRIVE – YOU CAN JUST GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR UNIT. The same sheets that are attached will be taped to the front door of every unit all weekend long. Be sure to check the sheet as soon as you arrive / before going to your room as room assignments could be tweaked a little between now and race weekend. Those listed as staying at ‘ Lutsen ‘ (Lutsen Lodge which is just down the road), we are still waiting on room numbers and will email you complete details in the coming days.

HAM Radio
HAM Radio assignments will be made by and emailed to you directly by Rick and Jayne Johnson in the coming days – my understanding is that Rick is on a fire deployment out West right now and will be back in a day or two. Our aid station bins are already packed and trucks start getting loaded tomorrow, so, if your t-shirts do not make it into the aid station bins, Cheri and I will bring them out personally as we have done other years – it is a good reason to come visit you anyhow!

More Info: contains just about everything you would ever / could ever need to know about the race. Please take some time to study it and print off the materials that you think will be helpful to you on race weekend since cell and Internet coverage is non-existent in areas.

This will almost certainly be our last group email before the race, although a few more breakout groups may see a group email or two. Please feel free to email, call, Facebook or text anytime between now and the race. Thank you all once again – we are looking forward to seeing you all on race weekend!

Thank You,

John Storkamp
Race Director
