We Need You!

Calling for volunteers for the 42nd running of the North American Vasa!!

All volunteers are invited to the Annual  Volunteer Dinner Meeting on Sunday evening, January 21 from 5:30-7:30pm.   Dinner is at the St. Francis School Cafeteria located at 123 E. 11th Street.   Please email Kristin Rylands if you are planning on attending.  You will sign in and receive your volunteer gift, then we will have a brief meeting, break out and meet with your crew chief, then we will be serving dinner catered by Thatsa Pizza.  Specialty pizzas with their signatures salads, dessert and beverage.

As you may already know it takes almost a small army of helpers to make Vasa weekend the quality set of events we love and have come to expect. There are many activities taking place over Vasa weekend and the days leading up to it. If you’d love to be a part of this action-packed, fun-filled celebration, please contact Kristin Rylands at:  kristinrylands@gmail.com or  231-620-7100. It's a great way to meet new folks, have fun and contribute to this 42-year Traverse City tradition.

Help is particularly needed in the following areas:

  • Pre-race set up at Timber Ridge
  • Serving  food in the Event Tent – Sat. and/or Sun.
  • Trail guides  - Sat. and/or Sun
  • Aid station crew members
  • Post-race tear down and clean-up
  • Clothing bag drop

If you’re already part of a crew, your crew chief will be contacting you regarding your availability for this year.

Crew chiefs should be checking with their respective members to see if their team remains solid and then recruiting new people if necessary. Vasa weekend will be here in the blink of an eye!

Thanks, volunteers, for making the North American Vasa a reality!
