The very high quality of the SLSG event is built on the outstanding volunteer help received, yet there is always room for more help. If you are interested in helping either before the event or for a few hours during the event (or even for the post-event clean-up), please let us know.
Volunteers are required to do a minimum of 4 hours and will receive a free ticket for that day and a free T-shirt.
We are looking for leaders in the following areas:
- Manage medical tent (for minor injuries, call ambulance as required)
- Have specific skills and like to help as a volunteer -- call us.
There may also be specific requests for help (shown below). To volunteer in a specific area or just for general helping out, call (314) 821-1286 or e-mail.
Specific areas include:
- Field layout, event set-up and take-down (2 days before and one day after the event)
- Entry gate and ticket collection
- Assist with parking
- Fundraising (assist finding sponsors and donors)
- Assist in T-shirt sales
- Field operations support (help maintain field during the event, clean-up, trash removal)
Call for general help or to request a specific area.
The following people are the Chairs of the Committees or key team members for the respective areas. If you would like to work on a particular Committee, or just find out more about what is involved, then either contact the SLSG or the Chair for the specific area (see contact information on the "About" page).
