One of the most challenging but glorious jobs at the Dawdle. After negotiating your price in raffle tickets with tired riders, your team will schlep their bike up the third-of-a-mile hill and hand it off to the bike transport team. Requires a strong back, a love of getting really sweaty and really tired, and your name will live on forever in Bike Hops history. In addition to all the other Dawdle volunteer perks, Bike Hops will receive 10 hours towards a T/F 2020 Volunteer Pass (that's HALF a General Volunteer pass!). When? Boone Dawdle - Sat Aug 10 - 9:30A-Midnight (includes Volunteer Training); RAIN DATE - Sun Aug 11 - 11A-3A

This year we have an official Rain Date -- Sunday, August 11 -- and in the event that we need to use it, we'll need volunteers! If you know you can't help out on the planned Dawdle date (August 10), but are available on the 11th and are willing to keep that day free until we call it (which won't happen until the morning of Aug 10), sign up for this team! If you end up working that day, you'll get all of the volunteer perks; if not, you'll still get the two Ragtag passes in thanks for keeping that day free. Please note that we ask that ALL volunteers attend the Volunteer Training on Saturday, August 10; additionally, you won't know for sure you're working until the morning of August 10 (you'll find out at the Volunteer Training), and you may not know what team you'll be working on until you start work on Sunday.

Check in participants at the start of the bike ride (at Flat Branch Park) and at the winery. It's helpful if you have a working laptop with a battery and wifi (but not strictly necessary). Once the event starts, you'll assist at the registration table, punch attendee passes in the dining room, help attendees find seats, and provide general information. When?

Come out to the winery early to help set up our magical outdoor cinema, and then stay up late to help us make it all disappear. This shift will be a SPLIT shift, with set up for a couple of hours in the afternoon, and then tear down starting once the party's over (around 11P). This means you'll definitely be able enjoy the party AND the movie (and possibly even part or all of the ride)! Requires some heavy lifting. Shift runs from approx noon to 5P, and then again from approx 11P to 3A. When? Boone Dawdle - Sat Aug 10 - 9:30A-Midnight (includes Volunteer Training); RAIN DATE - Sun Aug 11 - 11A-3A; Set Up/Break Down - Sat Aug 10 - 9:30A-3:00A (includes Volunteer Training)

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.
