Regatta needs volunteers

As many of you are aware, the Conanicut Yacht Club and Jamestown Yacht Club are hosting the Club 420 2009 National Regatta from Monday, July 27, through Wednesday, July 29, at Ft. Getty.

Thank you to the large team of people that have been working on this event since December and the many more that have volunteered to help during the regatta. We are anticipating 180 boats, and all of the support that goes with this kind of an event.

We are in desperate need of more landside assistance. Particularly, we need people to direct traffic and provide directions to attendees. This does not involve a long time. If you have three to four hours to help out, it would be very much appreciated. If you can do it, consider asking a couple of friends to join you. It should be fun. We are delighted to have the opportunity to host this national event in Jamestown, but we do need additional volunteers to provide the quality event we would all like to see.

We need volunteers for Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.; Sunday, 4 to 8 p.m.; Monday through Wednesday, 7 to 10 a.m.; Monday and Tuesday, 3 to 6 p.m.; and Wednesday afternoon and evening, 3 to 8 p.m.

If you are available during any of those times, please let us know by either leaving a message at the Conanicut Yacht Club (423- 1424) or emailing club420@ ConanicutYachtClub.org.

Thanks again for your consideration.
Nancy Lush
Regatta Co-Chair
