PLEASE NOTE: For the 2017 Boone Dawdle, we have an official Rain Date -- Sunday, August 13 -- and are asking for a commitment from all volunteers to be available to work on both days. If necessary, we will make the decision to postpone the event no later than the Volunteer Training on August 12. If we do end up using our Rain Date, you'll be asked to stick around for the Volunteer Training on the 12th, and we'll let you know when and where you'll need to go on the 13th. When you fill out your application below, note that you'll need to indicate that you can work BOTH days to be able to sign up as a Dawdle volunteer.

Help set up, operate, and tear down all the lovely surprises along the Katy Trail. In addition to helping to run one of the surprises (which involves everything from handing out snacks to showing people how to make giant bubbles, and a million other things in between), you'll spend a lot of time interacting with Dawdle participants.

One of the most challenging but glorious jobs at the Dawdle. After negotiating your price in raffle tickets with tired riders, you'll schlep their bike up the third-of-a-mile hill and hand it off to the bike transport team. Requires a strong back and a love of getting really sweaty and really tired. Also, your name will live on forever in Bike Hops history. (formerly known as "Bike Sherpas")

Help load em' up and ship em' out from Les Bourgeois. Back at Flat Branch Park, you'll help organize bikes and make sure they get back to their rightful owners. Requires lifting bikes fairly steadily (with frequent breaks) for several hours. This team will be working during most of the event (but don’t worry, you WILL get dinner!). In addition to the perks all Dawdle volunteers receive, Bike Loaders will also receive a VOLUNTEER PASS FOR TRUE/FALSE 2017!
