Volunteers Make Great Navigators

If our club-wide webinar (Navigating 101 with Marc Johnson) has inspired you, now you can get more familiar with the details. One of the best ways to get a good feel for what a navigator needs to know is to volunteer at an event. AND WE HAVE JUST THE EVENT!

The CVDC Driving Trial in June relies on an army of volunteers, and that army WANTS YOU! (This year’s date: June 11, 2011.) The event is held at a State Park (Haddam Meadows), which means that we can’t set up weeks in advance. CVDC rolls in like the circus coming to town. We set up in the middle of the week (June 9 & 10), we run a high quality ADS-recognized show all day Saturday (June 11), and, on Sunday (June 12), we offer a Fun Day specifically intended for volunteers (and others) to play! By Monday, the circus has to fold up and go away, leaving no trace behind.

We need people to help set up (create hazards, layout dressage ring, set up cones, and many other preparatory items). We need ring stewards, hazard observers and judges, and crossing guards. We need clean up, tear down, trailer area and vet assistants. We need YOU!!

And guess what: you will learn SO MUCH!

If you haven’t volunteered before, now’s the time. If you think you will want to compete, just not this year, you can’t beat this for a dry run. If you are planning on competing, you can still help in other ways.
